    I was wondering about that! A moment of silence perhaps?

    My wife has read all the books, so she knew what was going to happen tonight. I was pretty surprised though. I'm upset that there's only 1 more episode left.

    After Season 1 I read all the books, kind of miss being surprised by what happens on the show.

    I thought for sure we'd hear The Rains of Castamere.

    I've only started the second book. I heard season 3 splits the third book in half. Wonder what the finale holds?

    Tonight's eppy is going to be hard to top.

    I believe season 3 gives you two thirds of book 3.

    Now, I am really curious about how they are going to work out season 4 on the television. So far they could just follow the books, and try to find events and stuff they didn't really need, to manage to get the books down to a season. But from the next season they are going to intertwine book 4 and 5, including the rest of book 3. The reason is... we could say Martin struggled a bit with the chronology, as he experimented a bit with it. Personally I don't think it was a succesful experiment, but he could get away with doing so, since it is books. Now on the tv-show they would really need to try to make all events occur correct chronologically. The screen writers are going to have alot more to do now ;)

    My guess would be that they save the ending of book 3 for episode 9 or 10 in season four... and they will use alot of the beginning of book 4, and some of the beginning of book 5, in the meanwhile... Seems like they definitely needs to make more seasons than books to make this work out, which would suit Martin I guess. Given he isn't writing this series as fast as the tv-producers adapt it to screen. Since he is going to have two (or three) more books, before he concludes this series (his own words), I think he might feel the pressure a bit...

    Unless he is just going to let the tv-show conclude this before the books, which would seem odd...

    Apparently Martin has already told the producers how the books are going to end in case the tv show passes the books or in the event he dies before he can finish writing the series.

    I agree though, its going to be difficult for the writers to merge everything that happens in books 4 and 5 into one cohesive TV storyline.

    I actually did not know that... So it seems like perhaps book 6 will come out before the tv-show catches up, but the final book (unless he needs that extra eight book, as he has once told might happen) will probably be on television before we may read it in bookform... Now that will be a downer given that viewers not reading books are often the worst spoilers...

    And personally I don't really like knowing what will happen when I am going to read a book, since that takes me days. Hm, I guess I will have to see the show first, so it won't be spoiled, and then read it... I don't like that thought one bit...

    Great series have read them all can not wait for next one, suspect it may break the tsto bug I have got. Jim butchers cold days had that effect was a shame it only took couple of days room read.

    I really hope the books come out before the tv show catches up because I would rather read the books first as well. However, I would still watch the show. :lol:

    Love the books and love the show, although I think 10 hour-long episodes aren't enough to advance everyone's story.

    A growing distraction for me is the ageing of the child actor playing Bran. He already looks and sounds like a 15 year-old, and his character isn't projected to age much between now and the end of the 5th book; at least two years away in TV production time. By that time, Hodor could be carrying around a deep-voiced, 6-foot 'little lord.' :-)

    By the way in respond to this, they have way more adultscenes in the tv-series than I remember from the books... I guess HBO wanted their own twist on this, probably to ascertain they would have alot of viewers in the beginning ;) As we all know, nudity sells...
