In the upcoming season of Game Of Thrones the script of the TV show will not be following the plot of the books. The reason for this is simple, the next book in the series is not completed yet. This will change things as the readers of the book, who previously always knew what was going to happen before they saw it on the screen, will be in the same boat as those who only watch the HBO series.
With each season, HBO has become a bit more brave in not following the script of George Martins' Song of Ice and Fire novels. In fact many of the things that took place in the books do not happen in the show, and vice versa.
The writers' of Game of Thrones have had to fit long novels into a 10-episode TV series, and as such have made many changes. On occasion it seems like the writers of the TV show actually think they are doing something better, but for the most part it is obvious that they are trying to simplify the plot of the books so the TV show is easier to follow. No matter what the reason, there have been numerous changes for the HBO series.
While readers of the novels may have thought they knew what was going to happen, here are 10 Things Game Of Thrones Readers Didn't See Coming.
10 Lady Stoneheart
9 What Happened to Mance Rayder?
8 The Red Wedding
7 What Happened to Bronn?
6 Jon Snow Refuses to Join Stannis
5 Brienne and The Hound
4 4, The Fate of The Hound
3 Cersei Lannister is Sexually Assaulted
2 Joffrey Claws Open His Throat
1 Robb Makes Jon Snow A Bastard No More
Before he dies Robb makes Jon Snow a legitimate son of Ned Stark, taking away forever the title of "bastard" that haunts Snow so much. He does so to make sure that the North isn't taken over by the Lannister's in the case of Robb's death. He does so in a ceremony that is witnessed by a variety of people. Sadly for Jon Snow (almost as sad as his supposed "death" in the TV show) he remains a bastard. The only mention of the notion of legitimizing Snow on the show comes when Robb brings the idea up to his mother Catelyn, who basically says "No way". The subject is dropped and is never brought up on the show again.
