There are, in fact, ten Littlefingers, each with a correspondingly microscopic digit to differentiate him from his slimy clones.
Though, Gob still might look good in a cocktail dress.

I wanted to share this with you all.

A 16 year old GRR Martin wrote a letter to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the 1960's, and they actually published it in the Bullpen!

apparently Ramsey's death was originally intended to be a lot more gory and gruesome and Visually explicit. but was scaled back after test footage showed it being too gruesome even by Thrones standards.
Artists also created a prosthetic jaw for Bolton, and animated it to reveal the flesh ripping between Ramsay’s skin and gums.


so castration is fine, but a man getting his jaw ripped off by his dog is going too far?

They didn't show the castration, did they?

GoT has a history of discretion shots for things that are just too much. (Poor Sansa)

They didn't completely show Ned's beheading either.

I hope they have an uncut version of the scene on a DVD or Blu-ray box set.

Edit: Theon's castration is only referred to in passing in the book. Didnt rhe show actually have Ramsey grab his Willy and start pulling?

I hope it's not the Rebellion. I think that works better as pure backstory.

I want to see more of old Valyria. It's basically Ancient-Greece/Rome, Atlantis, and Pompeii all rolled into one,

and the cherry on the cake is they all rode dragons. . .

Meh, more bad mop wigs.

I'd love to see Valyria too but I don't see GRRM ever approving that.

A slave rebellion in Old Valyria would be neat, especially if the theories that the slaves had something to do with the Doom are confirmed.

I don't want to see any of it. The mystery of the past and how unknown it is provides one of the greatest qualities of the GoT setting.

They'll just have a spin-off series take place somewhere on Planetos that is so thoroughly unknown to the GoT part of the world it might as well be a different world. If not for Easter eggs slipped in just for the die hards, anyway.

One thing I've wondered about is if the Imperial China/New World Equivalent in the GOT world is dealing with the whitewalkers on their part of the world. The long knight is clearly a global phenomenon, so . . .

I don't think there actually is anything west on the map, or if there is Martin hasn't spent any time detailing it.

He's really, really bad at scale so any claims he makes about the size of the planet (allegedly bigger than Earth which makes no sense) should just be tossed.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Sigils Trailer. Spoilers for (almost) every death in the series.

I have to say this is a great artistic interpretation of the events of the series.
SPOILER: Show
The lion leaping on the deer and the wolf the Lannisters killing the Baratheon and the Starks, the flower being consumed by the flame is the Tyrells, and then Dany's speech about the wheel making them all crumble into dust. Breathtaking, give the guy who came up with this trailer a raise.

GoT meets Miami Vice, obviously. Call it Ashahi Nights.
Cue retro synth and saxophone intro.
