    I know the casting for Season 5 has focused on Dorn a great deal and I haven't heard much about the other locations.

    With them being locked into ten hours, I'm not sure how much time they have to focus on everything and we're in the stage where certain things might start getting cut if not completely essential to plot. I'm not familiar with the book text though.

    The focus on last season's insane-crazy fight suggests they will focus this season on the political fallout from that -- and I have no idea what they're doing with the power vacuum in Westeros now.

    The Bran storyline in the book was a lot more interesting... it delved into the magic a lot more. Much of that stuff was removed. Jojen isn't that interesting in the show, but he was more fleshed out in the book.

    But I agree that it's mostly pretty boring on the show. And the sudden appearance of the Child of the Forest at the end of last season seems really random, whereas they were mentioned in the books long before one actually showed up.

    Thanks for all the info. Yeah, honestly, the show really hasn't done much with Bran, it's all rather flat. And Jojen seemed like a "nice" character but nothing was ever really done with him either. When I learned a bit of the backstory between the Reeds and the Starks, that gave some more depth to their traveling together.

    Bran's chapters North of the wall had this really spooky vibe to them that the show didn't capture well.... they didn't include Bran's cannibalism, for instance!

    And it looks like we never will, unfortunately.

    Thought this piece about the heritage of another character on the show (who is not Jon Snow) was interesting and actually has some credibility, although I haven't the read the books and thus am not aware of any conflicting details that might exist.

    There are counter-arguments to be made to almost all pro-arguments, but it is not impossible. Personally, though, I doubt it. Not to spoiler too much, but there is yet another (and better) candidate for the third dragon.
