interesting comment...
At the 1:03:00 mark, George kind says that he's told Dan and Dave ideas he had for the books that he'd discarded which reminds me of something interesting i read in the original AFFC synopsis on Amazon back in 2002. Yara/Asha going after Theon in the TV series may have been one of these?:

AFFC 2002:

"The action in Book Four of A Song of Ice and Fire begins the day after the end of A STORM OF SWORDS. While the remaining northern lords war endlessly with each other and the ironmen of the isles attack the Dreadfort, Sansa becomes a skilled player in the game of thrones with Littlefinger as her mentor, Arya a skilled assassin, and Bran a magician and shapeshifter of great power. All seek to gain revenge for the death of their parents and Robb Stark, whose head was cut off and replaced with the head of his direwolf.

Valar morghulis. All men must die, and wolves, too. Danerys trains her growing dragons and learns from Barristan the secrets of her father, her brother Rhaegar, and other matters that will culminate at Starfell. And Jon Snow is the nine-hundredth-and-ninety-eighth lord commander of the Night's Watch. The Wall is his. The night is dark, and he has King Stannis to face. The cold wind is rising, and still there are inhuman powers gathering in the north."

***ironmen of the isles attack the Dreadfort***

I have nothing to do with those plot synopses on Amazon and like places. Have no idea who makes this stuff up, or what they base it on.

Don't want to waste any more of your precious time, so just a quick question:

Which is your fav chess set of all time ?

Re: interesting comment...
Like all tournament players, I prefer the classic Staunton design.

Ornamental chess sets are cool as objects d'art, but suck for actually playing games.
