    The theory goes that both will happen. Jon wargs into Ghost at the moment of death, and Mel brings back his body ala Beric. Then Jon un-wargs, which accomplishes what Beric or Stoneheart never did - fully retain his identity and personality.

    AH! Gotcha! Thx for the clarification. Guess I was halfway there, then. Would love to see some warg POV scenes.

    So, once again Belfast film festival did a preview of the season opener and once again I was lucky enough to win tickets. Another very strong opener.

    I'll do a spoilerish review if anyone is interested. As regards the much discussed death of a character who is still alive in the books...hmmm. Well, I'll say nothing for now other than it both makes sense and doesn't make sense that I didn't see this character mentioned in the various posts I saw discussing who might be for the chop. Hard to explain.

    If it was the char speculated who factors into Jon Snows storyline it makes sense to me. You are going to have Stannis there already you have broken off one of the biggest (the main star of the show) in Tyrion into his own storyline. So you are fighting for screentime.

    That's why I think we will continue to see established chars on the show start condensing into another chars storyline/replacing a new or lesser char from the books.

    Dornes storyline and possibly the fake Arya storylines seem to be setting up that way.

    Having read some posts from people who've seen screeners:
    The Winterfell story this season sounds completely nuts.

    For those of you with Verizon Fios, there is currently at $5/month for 12 months promotion going on. You can cancel any time without a penalty. A cheaper option to HBO Now if you just want HBO for a few months to watch GOT.

    In case anyone missed it, Jon Stewart interviewed Peter Dinklage on the Daily Show last night.

    Is everyone asleep?

    (Or is there a better thread, where you're already squeeing?)

    I'm about to start watching the fourth episode of season 5.

    (Yes, the new season. Yes 4 episodes came out in one day that is today. No I didn't say it wrong. Pull your socks up.)

    Hurry the #### up.

    So, I've been told that

    Jon's stabbing by the Night's Watch will take place in the season finale. Apparently the scene had to be filmed twice. The reason was that one of the actors playing one of the knifemen is a pretty big guy. After it was shot, Kit Harrington complained that he looked tiny compared to this guy. So the scene was reshot with a smaller actor playing the knife-wielder. Having met Kit and the actor who's part was deleted, I can imagine that the disparity would've been pretty glaring. I look small next to this guy but when I met Kit, he looked small next to me!

    This seems silly to me because we all know..

    Melisandre is just going to revive/save him anyway.

    The TV audience hasn't been exposed to nearly as much magic as the readers have at this point though. If they do it well, the death can come as a (somewhat expected at this point) shock, and the resurrection can actually be surprising since every other major character that has died so far has stayed dead. Berric is barely even foreshadowing at this point with as little time as we spent with the Brotherhood.
