    I've been suspicious of her pregnancy from the get-go. But your fanfic version would be perfect karma!

    As someone who bought and read all the books (although it's been so long ago that I can barely remember them), I can't for the life of me think of a single reason I'd buy another, if George releases one. The show has taken me in a whole different direction, and I'm not sure I'd want to invest any time in reading an alternative ending.

    I think I'll be satisfied with how the show wraps up the story. Plus, I'm pissed George left us hanging.

    This is where I'm at. I'd have to start over from book one to know what was really going on again. If he does ever finish them, ha! I might reread them in 20 years when I'm retired

    I love the books, but I am not going to start another series that isn’t finished. The wait is insane.

    That's a shame, because in the books, Euron is a good character and the Direwolves actually matter

    Rewatching old episodes. This scene could be some forshadowing

    No I think when Varys is talking about Tyrion getting his revenge on Cersei and how he may have to wait a long time that it's could be hinting at him killing her.

    I don’t know Euron is pretty much the same. He’s had what 3 or 4 chapters total? Only real difference is you get to see inside his head.

    Agreed, there are many plotlines and characters which didn't make the show or were butchered that I have a high interest in seeing their resolution. Plus the show doesn't have Patchface and Strong Belwas.

    No way dude. In the book he sacrifices virgins on his boats, has a bunch of mutes for crew members, hints that he could have possibly studied with the 3ER, and has a horn that is supposed to bind Dragons to him.

    He is much more than just a ***** chasing pirate.

    How do you not have Strong Belwas? That part was always a shame to me.

    Arianne also. She is 100% perfect for an HBO show.

    Yeah, and the accounts of him via the Victarion story and other discussions about him in other chapters.. He's a badass who is known all across westeros and essos, and people are either terrified of him or bend to his will.

    Some friends and I have a dead pool going. I think my picks for the week are:
    Mountain, Hound, Varys, Qyburn, Eron, Greyworm and Cersi.

    Considering adding Jamie.

    But I have a 3 point lead so no need to get crazy because I think there will still be some deaths in the final.

    Book Euron is such a badass that rumor is he's already met Dany - as Daario Naharis.
