Game of thrones is all that some people can think about. And with season 4 having such a great finale with so many things happening at once has left many people to wonder about what the next season has to offer. But for all those Game of Throne lovers, the sad news is that the next season which is season 5 is almost a year away. It will be launches in the month of January of 2015. Coming back to the season 4, it’s hard to find someone who didn’t love the season finale. Everyone loves Game of Thrones and yet despises the story line at the same time. The show has an extremely high rating and the number of viewers it has is even higher. The show is undoubtedly doing great, but then there are a lot of things which the show has managed to miss out on. And for all those who haven’t read the book but love the show, here are some things which you should know which would help you clear up some of the things or maybe confuse you even more than you think.
All of you must remember the scene where Melisandre comes and takes Gendry away and also tells him that he is the bastard son of the deceased King Robert Baratheon. Well in the book Gendry is not the one who is taken to Storm’s End, instead Robert Baratheon had another bastard son by the name of Edric Storm who resided in Storm’s End with his uncle Renly Baratheon. It is Edric Storm that Davos sets free not Gendry. Gendry finds out quite later. He continues to stay with the Brotherhood without Banner for a long time to come.
2. Jamie Lannister:
This is the season where one starts to have a soft spot for Jamie Lannister, but then again it is not easy to love him or is it? Well you surely do remember that Jamie was present for Jofrrey’s wedding to Margeary and it must have gotten you wondering why did Jamie not do anything at that time when his son was dying? Well the truth is that Jamie is not supposed to be there, he was on his way to King’s Landing when Joffrey dies. In the show he goes down to see Tyrion in his chambers, but the truth is he goes down only once to see him and that is when he goes to free Tyrion.
3. Sansa Stark:
Sansa, the lovely girl who is a little slow, well she finally escapes King’s Landing. Oh, how everyone rejoiced that she is out of that hell hole and will be somewhere safe. But you think George RR Martin would let that happen? Nah. She lands up in the hands of Lord Petyr Baelish, popularly known as the Little Finger. She takes up the identity of Alyane, his bastard daughter. In the television show, she comes out clean saying she is Sansa, but in the book that never really happens. She transforms herself into Alyane slowly and steadily and becomes someone completely different from Sansa. Also in the book Robin does not know that Alyane is his cousin sister Sansa.
4. Brienne of Tarth
Brienne, that woman just has the saddest luck. Doesn’t she? Whenever she pledges herself to someone that person dies. First Renly Baratheon, the man she was in love with and then everyone’s beloved Catelyn Stark. Brienne is sent off with her new sword the oathkeeper to look for the Stark sisters. In the television show she does come across Arya. But in the book she never comes across Arya, instead she crosses path with the Hound quite later on which is in the 4th book. After Arya has ran off to Bravos. She also does not initially take Podrick with him, instead she chances up on him on her quest to find Sansa and Arya Stark.
5. Tyrion Lannister:
Who doesn’t love him? He’s smart and witty and what not. Peter Dinklage is the best choice for playing it. Even when reading you imagine Tyrion to be just as the way as Peter plays it. Everyone loved that marvelous speech he gives during his trial. But there is one really big thing which was not shown in the season finale and that was as to why did Tyrion decide to kill his father, Tywin. Yes, everyone seems to believe that he killed Tywin because of how he treated him all his life. Well that is not the truth. The truth is that when Jamie comes to free Tyrion, Tyrion decides to ask him about what happened to his first wife, Tysha and whether she was really a whore or not? Jamie tells him that she was just a common peasant girl who was portrayed as a whore by his father because as Jamie had joined the Kingsgaurd and would not be able to father children, it fell upon Tyrion to carry on the line and Tywin did not want to have grandchildren who were not of high blood. After knowing this truth Tyrion decides to kill his father. But he doesn’t decide till the time he doesn’t meet Lord Varys.
