In Memoriam

For those of you who were not able to come to San Diego for Comicon... or get into Hall H for the GAME OF THRONES panel... here's the video that kicked off the proceedings, a tribute to all those we have loved (or not) and lost during the first three seasons of the show.



Seen all together like that, it does make me seem rather a bloody bastard, doesn't it?

In my own (feeble) defense, however, let me point out that Irri, Rakharo, the Thirteen of Qarth, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Mago (not seen in the video), and Pyat Pree are all still alive and well (more or less) in the books as of the end of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.  Like the guys in Spinal Tap, David and Dan do like to turn things up to 11.

Robb's wife is alive in the novels too, but Jeyne Westerling is an entirely different person than Talisa Maegyr with an entirely different fate.  Ros does not exist in the books, but of the characters she replaced, Kyra is dead, but Chataya and Alayaya are still around.

As to where we go from here... season four is coming, and no one is safe on GAME OF THRONES.

Not even those who you think might be safe for another book or two, from reading my novels.

Yeah, that's what I wondered, and who the two are!

I'm such a sap. I watched that video and started tearing when they showed Talisa and balling when they showed Grey Wind.
Then I read your post and it made me feel connected to ASOIAf and in general, you make me smile.

Syrio&Benjen
I know it might not mean much but i watched this a few times and can't find Syrio or Benjen does that mean they are not dead? I know i can't be the only one that is wondering this. Syrio a faceless man. A man wonders

Re: Syrio&Benjen
Unfortunately, I think we both know what this means. "Their fates are unknown" at the moment.

In fact, my theory is, that comet is going to return in the final book and wipe out EVERYONE!!!!

I'm just glad they didn't make us sit through the RW again, that was rough to watch, even knowing it was coming.

But it sure makes one hell of a trailer for Season 4, can't wait!

Just tell me Sean Bean will be back for the Bran POV scenes and all will be forgiven.

Love!
First, I love the fact that no one is safe (even though I miss poor Ned-and fam-but I know his sacrifice was necessary for the war that ensued). Secondly, I had to laugh at the music that was used. And third (unrelated to your post), I need you to PROMISE you won't change your ending because of people either "figuring out" certain things or simply coming up with strange theories. Promise!! Oh yes & thank you for the books!

No prima donnas in that cast then..
"But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag, thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee"

It was so hard to read how Drogo died in the books.But Jason Momoa made the whole thing thousand times worse,i still can't get over it.Your characters are truly alive with such brilliant actors,George!
