Yeah. I think Jon is safe. All the evidence in the books points to


I'm just not sure if GRRM will kill them off eventually or what. We know he's at least partially sentimental with his characters.

That would make some sense.

You think Stannis sacrifices his daughter? Part of me says no, but he's pretty fucked right now.

@venomlust you may want to spoiler tag that.

The North is where the whole thing is heading though. Daenarys, the dragons, Jon(if he survives), Stannis, Grey Worm, Brienne, Arya, Tyrion, Jaime, Sansa, Davos, will all end up there. Quite a few are already there.

The fat fuck is likely to die off himself before he gets around to finishing the story. He's even slower than Robert Jordan when it comes to getting stuff out. There's at least 4 books left in it, and going at his current rate, that could take 20 years to do. He's a morbidly obese 66 year old, so I won't be surprised when the news comes out of his dying of a massive heart attack. I just hope Brandon Sanderson is willing to take up the reins like he did with the Wheel of Time series.

Yeah. The north seems to be the end game. Confrontation between dragons (fire) and white walkers (ice.)

Entirely possible. Though unlike Jordan Martin doesn't have a terminal diagnosis. And I read half the Wheel of Time and so far all the GoT books. If Martin dies before it's done it'll be a much greater loss. At least he knows how it ends and we would have the show as a consolation prize.

Done.

It is annoying that GRRM doesn't really seem to concerned with getting the books done. Not that he isn't writing a crap ton of pages constantly, but his attitude about it isn't quite as fervent as his fans would want .

Actually... I'm not sure Daenyrs and the Dragons will head up North. Its kind of interesting how the Targaryans conquered Westeros the first time... and they didn't go North. If I'm correct, the last King of the North... before Robb of course, kneeled and was granted Warden of the North. I don't remember the Dragons ever going up North though.

I don't think Daenyrs will go North. Its unrealistic considering the current Empire she has could be connected with tape and be just as strong. Even from a TV perspective I don't see her wearing furs and the next thing fans complain about is how HBO supports cruelty to animals all of a sudden.

As far as other potential characters in the North... Arya isn't a leader, she's a loner. Sansa... and you could debate this I guess, lost her path during first season when she made the mistake in giving her Starkness and betrayed her dad. Its actually a decent debate, and if you go to the ASoFI forums theres threads about this. But it definitely seems like the death of her Dire Wolf represented when she lied to King Robert about how his son got his ass kicked. Ever since she's been in the web she created.

Stannis is an interesting fellow, and I really like the character. However, as much as that is so, he's never had a PoV and its already the second to last novel coming out and he still isn't mentioned as having his own PoV. That really leaves Snow as the real representation of the North.

There's lots of loose stuff that I don't think will be covered. He better snap out of this warging shit. I hope HBO slapped the shit out of him when he came to them with that idea. Of course, they could be like "True Blood concept again!" You never know.
