If Michael Chricton had to do it, then he most certainly has todo it.

Don't hold your breath, Martin will be dead before he gets an opportunity to finish the series.

This guy...
Basically his editors gave him a deadline and he just took it to a public court of opinion so that his worshippers could validate the whole 'we should not rush art/creative process' bullshit and now he can go back to blog about football and stupid awards.

I've got a feeling all GRRM has written is:

"All work and no play makes George a dull boy."

Ha ha at me, his one spoiler in that explanation, he had to rewrite a chapter about a humiliated character, was about a character I hoped he had written off two seasons ago.

They have plenty of story they have not even touched. There are whole season spanning stories they straight up skipped from 2 books ago. They have the material. And they have shown they are going back to get some of those stories. One casting choice they mentioned was a Septon who was in I think book 3 or 4....so waaaaaaay back from book 6 where the show is now.

There are 3 major(POV) characters the show has not even mentioned existing yet. They have story to spare.

Most of the story they skipped were parts which are more suited for the books


For example, Season 5 was a Feast for Crows and a Dance of Dragons combined.

They went through 2 books in one season, cause the books were full of tedious journeys, and other stuff more suited for books


Other stories wont make sense in a TV show, because you can't have many characters in a TV show, or else the audience will get confused, its not like their names are constantly there like in a book. So its beneficial for the Show to stay with 3-4 storylines, while the books have like 7-8, so that doesn't make sense


The only part they haven't really talked about is Euron Greyjoy's story, that's it


Everything else is caught up.


imo they should wrap up by Season 7

Bran is going to warg into Jon Snow's body and operate him. Jon is dead, but Bran will lead the fight for Winterfell from inside Jon's body (Bran is the heir to Winterfell, after all), and Bran will use Jon's body to fly on a dragon, like the old guy said (that Bran would fly), and like Bran saw in his vision, looking down from above King's Landing and seeing the dragon's shadow that he's riding on.

lol

It would be funny of this season ends on a cliff hanger and then season 7 it flashes back to when the Greyjoy part of the story begins and the entire season follows the Greyjoys XD

If they extend it now that just means more D&D ideas, almost all of which have been garbage. Them getting more time to **** around in the GOT universe isn't good.
