True, but there is still an enormous amount of complexity to the show that simply would not exist if it were not based on an enormously complex set of books. Now that we are approaching the 3rd act...

"My A$$hole Hand" is one of the funniest lines across the TV show and movies.

I still like "When Evil shows up, it Blows up" though :)

There's no question in my mind that the actor will be back next year, playing a resurrected Jon Snow (possibly with a different name)

I expect Arya to be blinded in episode 10. I don't expect Lady Stoneheart to ever make an appearance on the show, despite the circumstantial evidence that its possible.

It appears they are going to use some of that Iron Islands material from Feast for Crows next season, but for sure the main plots are going to move 100% ahead of the books, no question.
