The books are nothing like the show now. There are story arcs that would have made the TV series last 10 seasons at least. I could see the books ending totally different than the show.
I don't, as GRRM has already told D&D how it all ends. Now the show and books will take a different route to get to that ending, but the ending will be the same. If for example, AeJon sits on the Iron Throne as ruler of the seven kingdoms at the end of the books, then the same will happen on the show.

Something like the ruler of the seven kingdoms yes but many key players are still alive in the books and have major plot lines. In the books there are alot more ppl who could sit on the iron throne still.

Yeah while the general ending might be the same, the specifics might be different, unless GRRM also told D&D "these people are supposed to be alive by the end of the series, these guys now, how they die is up to you".

So the two directors who made the highest rated episodes (Hardhome, Rains of Castermere, Battle of Bastards, Winds of Winter) will direct 5 of the 6 episodes whereas Benioff & Weiss will direct the finale.

This is going to be epic.

I'm late to the game and don't want to butt in but I just wanted to say I've taken the plunge, having never watched GOT, and have binged though seasons one and halfway through 2 in 3 days. Now I'm hooked. Great show. I look forward to comparing it against Walking Dead, which I've been a longtime fan.

Everyone keeps talking and raving about this show while here I am cautiously avoiding this thread so the story doesn't get spoiled. I haven't even begun season 1.

I just started watching last year after all the rave reviews and Game of Thrones references I've been hearing on RFD and on other forums.

On another note, GRR Martin is almost 70 years old and he isn't exactly the fittest guy around. I hope he is able to finish his last two books, it would be kind of sad if they are left unfinished.


BTW, if you like Game of Thrones and have Netflix, you can give "The Last Kingdom" a try in the meantime until Season 8 is released in 2019. It's not quite the same thing, but if GRR Martin watches it (according to his tweet), you might like it too:

Yeah I'm gonna get to it asap. The only reason it took so long because I was curious to dive into the books first.

I'm taking the opposite route. After watching the show, I want to read the books.

Maybe he should be writing instead of watching TV. Rome is closest to GOT. Even has some of the actors.
