I've been sort of hanging out for a GoT related post so that I could ask this without being rudely off topic:

I'm primarily a book fan. I love the show and think that it's really excellent, but for me, it just can't beat the books.

The ending to the "Oathkeeper" episode, though, raised some concerns. Are we at the point now where the show may be spoiling things that are yet to be seen in the books? Because if and when that happens, I will reluctantly stop watching the show until the books are completed.

Nobody has given a definitive answer to that question yet. Was the final scene from "Oathkeeper" confirmation of something that many have suspected, but has not yet been explicitly revealed in the books? Or was it something that the showrunners have added (which is totally fine, I'm not suggesting that the show must adhere strictly to the books)? Are we at the point where we have to be wary of book spoilers in the show?

This probably sounds a little pedantic to some, but when it comes to things I really love, I am super sensitive to spoilers, and I'll bet I'm probably not the only one.

Thanks. Also, congratulations. It is pretty great the the books I've loved for years have become the cultural phenomenon they always deserved to be.

I believe I have already addressed this issue in a comment on an earlier post.

Once again: how many children did Scarlett O'Hara have?

I saw that, and I'm afraid I have to admit that I didn't understand it. After a quick trip to Wikipedia, I do now. As I would with any other internet discussion, I began marshaling counter arguments...

But, in doing so, I run the risk of annoying someone I greatly respect and admire (and who knows me not-at-all, other than as an annoyance, which isn't an impression I'd like to leave). And what I realised is that I trust your judgement. If you don't believe that anything in the show can diminish my enjoyment of the books, that's good enough for me. I hope I didn't irritate you too much.

Differences
Scarlett O'Hara has not the same number of children in the book and in the movie.

George's question is about differences between a work and it's adaptation.
