Since "A Feast For Crows" departs from GRRM's normal chapter routine, I fully expect the upcoming season to either be a delight or a disappointment to the show fans .. keeping in mind that Book 4 Book primarily deals with Sam Tarley, Cersei, Brienne, Arya, Seastone Chair, Dorne , Jaime Lannister, Sansa, Victarion Greyjoy, Areo Hotah, Kings Moot ..etc .. the two most popular characters on the show are missing .. and HBO is likely going to change things up from the book fairly dramatically ..


Unless HBO decides to co-mingle books 4 and 5 ..


I'd meant to post a while back and forgot .. I re-read book 4 and 5 for the 3rd time after the last season, and a small amount of Book 4 was actually in the last season ..

Books 4 and 5 cover the same timeline so I would expect some co-mingling. Bran's story is already pretty much done for Books 4 and 5 so don't expect to see him or Hodor! Hodor! Dany's story is pretty much stuck in Meereen other than the political problems and dragonquest she does. I don't know if the show will include the Dorne visitors or not. Not much happens with Jamie or Sansa. Cersei has a good story line as does Theon, Tyrion, Arya, Ramsey and Asha. Jon Snow has some stuff. So most of the stuff that occurs may be in Dorne which is a bit of a risky proposition to add new characters on a show like this. Frankly, this is where I thought GRRM started to go out of control.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

After re-reading again, I still think Book 4 is the weakest by far .. Kings Moot was really pretty useless IMO .. the Dorne sideline with Myrcella useless, Brienne's journey was kinda interesting especially with Nimble Dick and Biter .. Jaime and Riverrun was OK ..


I'm guessing we'll see much more Dorne and the Faith Militant .. and the High Septon has to be the poor septon Brienne ran into on the Rosby Road ..


Like I said, I believe Season 5 will either delight fans or there could be some rumbling .. just depends on how much liberty David Benioff and D.B. Weiss decide to take ..
