With season five of 'Game of Thrones' still months away and the sixth book in George R.R.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Will the Iron Islands Plot Be Omitted?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 28, 2014 @ 10:35 AM
Everything we've seen and heard of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 thus far has suggested that the 2015 run of HBO's George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy drama will be the most book-divergent yet, and with so much ground to cover, a number of stories and characters have already fallen by the wayside. Will the same fate befall the Iron Islands, and the important Greyjoy subplots featured throughout Martin's novels?

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Game of Thrones' season 5, somewhat understandable given the long road to its spring premiere, but no less taxing given its status as the most off-book season yet.

Depressing though it may be, 'Game of Thrones' fans have gotten somewhat used to the fact that the series' most beloved characters have a tendency to meet their makers beyond a certain point. Season 4 finale "The Children" said goodbye to several major characters from the HBO fantasy-drama, but one actor teases that his/her character may yet return in season 5.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Will Sansa Run Out of Story Material Too?

Yesterday 'Game of Thrones' fans were disheartened (okay, some elated) to learn that at least one major series star would sit out season 5 for lack of story material from series creator George R.R. Martin, leading us to wonder what other characters might run out of road if the 'Song of Ice and Fire' books move too slowly. Most specifically, will Sophie Turner's Sansa Stark be the next casualty of 'Game of Thrones' season 5?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick September 3, 2014 @ 12:37 PM
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has alarmed readers of George R.R. Martin's books from the very beginning, if only that the fantasy-drama adaptation might catch up with, or surpass Martin's notoriously long writing process. Now, as season 5 continues shooting across the world, we may have our first major casualties of that process, as Kristian Nairn (Hodor) says he won't appear in any 2015 episodes.

If you want to see Cersei Lannister throw a bucket of ice water over her head in support of ALS awareness -- who knew she had a charitable side, right? -- or Jon Snow or even George R.R. Martin himself, watch the stars and creator of 'Game of Thrones' perform the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

All too often 'Game of Thrones' fans have had to worry that series creator George R.R.
