    Depends if GRRM gave them an ending they're sticking to or if they have gone their own way so more likely a fan friendly end of Jon and Dany sharing the throne.

    I've only found out today, while reading up on reddit about other's views on episode 3, that there isn't even a Night King in GRRM's books.

    So likely the story will be vastly different if he ever gets round to finishing it before he croaks.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    So they're not even following the story line in the books? We'll get a Netflix ending for sure.
    Because feelings...

    Not sure how closely, if at all, they're following the books. May be like The Walking Dead and the comics where the TV show uses the best bits then makes a mess of the rest to please the audience into keep watching. i.e. favourite characters spared on screen when they've been dead for ages in the book/comic. So bound to have an impact on the quality of the overall story.

    At least if the books turn out to have a better ending then they'll remake the show or do some movies of it in future.

    You're not the only one, my son thought the same. Seems you were right!

    Not at all, I think you'll find that GRRM likes his hero(ines) female... it was quite obvious from reading the books that Dani, Arya, Sansa, Cersei, Caitlin Stark to name a few are his favourite characters.

    ha ha ha, that's a very good summary!!

    I'm going to watch it again, in the dark. Too much glare on the telly screen this morning, hard to see what was going on some of the time.

    Called it!

    I’m a bit unsatisfied by the episode to be fair, visually stunning but story wise it was a bit to clean and tidy

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    GRRM hasn’t finished writing the books, they deviated from the books story lines a few seasons ago
