Game of Thrones, tv only, books don't exist, no backstory

21,237 posts in this topic

since the other thread has become a pissing match...

i know there is only one episode left but...

All I ask is to let us illiterates :) have our fun.

i want to ask questions and speculate wildly without any backstory filled in unless it was something they actually showed. I am going in as there are no books. Subtle things have been talked about and while not earth shattering, did clue me on things i wish didn't. Maybe some tv only recaps do fill in some blanks.

so please lets us have this, books were never written deal?

no chance this is not hijacked.... :popcorn:

Is this where I can ask dumb questions without ridicule? If so, can someone remind me who holds Winterfell at the moment? TIA.

I'm pretty sure it's the dude that killed Robb Stark.

Roose Bolton told Robb he had a son (bastard son maybe?) that he could send to re-take Winterfell from Theon. Robb said OK. That guy's forces arrive at Winterfell and convince the Greyjoy men to turn on Theon in exchange for them being able to walk away. The next time we see Winterfell it is burning, so I guess given we now know Bolton is totally playing for the other side, we can guess that it was his bastard son's guys that burned the city down and he'd been planning to turn on Robb for a while now.

I think, in terms of the TV show, Winterfell is abandoned. It is a smoking ruin in the intro and they haven't really shown it this season.

Yeah, but unidentified guy who cut off Theon's junk led him into wherever he is torturing him via some secret passage. If it was Winterfell, you figure Theon would've recognized it. I'm betting their somewhere else. Plus, Theon is strapped to a giant X a lot, which looks very similar to the Bolton's flag... so they probably at Bolton's place.

Winterfell seemed to be left abandoned. Legally, Bran is The Lord of Winterfell. Although, he did yield the title to Theon, but I'm not sure that would be recognized by anyone since Theon has absolutely zero support from anyone anywhere. Finally, since most everyone thinks Bran and his brother are dead, it seems that in the eyes of the Crown, Tyrion is The Lord of Winterfell. They believe there are no male heirs and Sansa is the eldest living child.

So can we rename the other non-book thread to "***OFFICIAL*** Whining, Bellyaching and Bickering Between GoT Book Readers and Non-Book Readers" now?

Yeah, he's kind of a wang. No doubt.ETA: Oops, you said warg. Nope, don't think he's one of those. Edited by Frankbot

We can rename it the "There's no reason for book readers to post in here at all, but for some reason they do so we had to make yet another thread" thread.

I think it was just one contigent/platoon/whatever that went out. I don't think it was supposed to be the whole night's watch.

Gekko says they're in trouble after the 6th season, so don't get too comfortable with it.

After this season they still have 2.5 volumes of source material plus whatever notes on future volumes from the author. How can they paint themselves into a corner as long as they still have a story that's already been told?

Yes there are still people manning the Wall, just not enough. Remember Castle Black is one of 3 manned locations. Most are not but 3 are still manned by the Night's Watch.

I agree, as much as i liked the TV people in that thread, having read there stuff, though its never really spoiler stuff, they tend to spoil things without realizing it.

Just by reading from people that the Red Wedding was the worst feeling they had in the books, I am now thinking such a mass killing will never happen again, I dont want to know that, i prefer to think the Lannisters could be taken out in one fell swoop as well.

Also people were mentioning they "forgot" what happens to Edmure in the books, thats a spoiler. I dont want to know that he ceases to be a part of the story. Small subtle stuff like that, really irked me and had me regretting going into that thread.

so you needed to repeat those in this thread thus ruining it NEW THREAD!!!! Edited by B-Deep

Might be a dumb question but this is for TV watchers. The season two finale ended with the White Walkers walking past Sam going somewhere...Where were they headed, and what is taking them so long, why havent they started a massive war with some humans by now?
