1. who the hell knows if the books will be finished before the series, but it seems unlikely at best. As long as they stick to the "big picture" of what Martin has in mind, the details can diverge as seems best for TV, versus print.
Bonn training the King slayer. Extending the time of Arya and the hound in the story, Bran appearing in the north etc. all changes worked and stayed true to the story.

I think they need to combine 4 and 5 due to the lack of action in the books. There are several sections of those two books that are interesting in a book but I can see issues translating to TV

Women love the king slayer and supposely Sansa's role is going to beefed up more than the books. And I don't think the audience is going to want to see half-man getting pissed on by life the whole season. Maybe they don't have him travel with the dwarfs but his new buddy?

Some on here need some perspective. Remember Haley/Crennel/Gunther/Herm etc. it can get a lot worse.

The NFL hired 2 of Reid's OCís to be head coaches in the last 3 years. One is already in the Super Bowl this year with Foles as his QB. If any NFL team needs a coach and Reid is available, they will hire him over any person on the face of the earth, except for Bellicheck.
