Game Of Thrones (TV Show) Season 5 - WITH BOOK SPOILERS
« on: July 27, 2014, 07:31:34 PM »
Seeing S5 has started filming and there have been major cast announcements at ComicCon I think its safe to start a Season 5 thread.

Casting News revealed over on WinterIsComing.net tells us we have a Prince Doran, a recast Princess Myrcella,
some Sand Snakes, a High Sparrow and an Aero Hotah.

Two big names added to the cast, Alexander Sidigg as Prince Doran, a brilliant choice - and 10 years ago he'd have been a top choice for Oberyn I feel. And Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow.

And the countdown to March begins.

I agree 100%, on both counts :D

One segment of filming for S5 has already wrapped and WinterIsComing has some interesting pictures.

I'm also intrigued by the comment about Bronn & Jamie being in Dorne??

Looks like they've changed things in Dorne big time. Presumably Trystane Martell has become an amalgamated version of Arianne + Quentyn. First time a decision has annoyed me in this series really. Hopefully I'm wrong and Arianne at the very least still exists.

It seems like they are changing things rather drastically from the books in this season. I guess this is to move forward with a different plot so the show can wrap up in the 7-8 seasons that most people seem to be predicting. Not sure about the plot changes but we will see.

I think you might be right, having Jamie & Bronn in Dorne maybe the start of the scaling back of the whole Essos/Big Griff/Little Griff storyline and maybe have Jamie uncover the Martell plot whilst he's in Dorne. From here on out the storylines get pretty spread out what with events in Westeros, Arya in Braavos, Dany in Slavers Bay, Tyrion travelling throug Essos and the coup attempt in Dorne. Perhaps the producers are concerned it might become too clogged and result in very little screen time to put the story across (its a pretty firm bet the Kings Moot & extended Greyjoy family have been culled already).

Its easier to paint a massive epic picture in a book, very difficult in a movie, but nigh on impossible in 10 x 50 min episodes.

 As far as the books go, Lady Stoneheart character has a huge and important role in the story lines of a few of the series' biggest characters. Omitting her would provide a huge shift in the story, while discounting what is one of the biggest twists of the books.
I absolutely love reading fantasy fiction in my new hot tub from Rec Warehouse, plug and play bubble fun perfect at night gazing at the stars.

So, this was revealed yesterday. It hints at the show's direction, and at its pace, when compared to the books.

Anyway, I like it.

I'm really angry that Aegon won't be present in the show. He's very important in the end.

I hope we get some sort of resolution to the Gentry storyline started in S3. At this stage I think we're meant to assume that he fell out of the boat on the way to Kings Landing.
I will expand your TBR pile.
