Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Yeah, no. Maybe more going on there than we know so far, but that's too much. Ned confirmed that one, they had a recognizable body to bury, etc.

Series started off really tight, but these last two were pretty loose, wandering tales. Needed to be edited down to 1 book that had a better cohesion. Killing people just to spend pages introducing new people, just to kill them, seems to waste a lot of time, and doesn't appear to be moving the story forward. Feels like the middle seasons of Lost, before they decided to regroup and head for the finale. Hopefully, GRRM will do similarly and tighten up the story as he heads for the big finish...
