Was there really that much written in the books about Rhygar/Lyanna?

No GoT next April showrunner's confirmed.

Will be much later in 2017 due to needing to shoot during the actual winter.

They are referenced fairly frequently in the recollections of various characters. However, so are other "historical" figures.

Makes sense.

What if Dany gets to the cold in her nice dresses and is like, "Fuck it. Essays was good enough for me."

Will winter even come to King's Landing?

Probably not. They talking about "Sotherners" all the time when talking about King's Landing. It's like our Florida.

Also, in the books Ramsay has already tortured another guy and also called him "Reek". He arrives at Winterfell seeking shelter and is met by Theon who makes fun of him. Creepy foreshadowing.
Heheheh and the people who've read the books know how this turned out.

I'm curious to read how Martin treats the character of Ramsay differently in the upcoming book. I feel like, in the streamlining for the series, the character has probably taken on more 'weight' than he probably should. As an instrument for Theon's downfall, he made perfect sense. But, as characterized in the show, it's really hard for me to imagine any satisfaction in his defeat because he's basically just a guy with a serious mental problem. It's hard to imagine he truly has any serious political ambitions. And, unlike other 'villains' on the show, he doesn't really have a compelling duality or depth of character. Heck, even Joffrey could be maddening in the way that he found a way to project leadership and authority in certain situations.

The problem with Ramsay is that he is not tied to any sort of ideology or cause. That's what makes Cersei a good character. That's what makes Tywin a good character. Even Walder Frey. I don't really get that with Ramsay.

They said their outline has had it set to end at 73 hours, with the remaining 13 split between two more seasons.

HBO confirmed that Season 7 will only be 7 episodes. Looks like they're sticking to this plan.

Some will grumble, but this is good news in my opinion. It means that they are sticking to their outline and not being forced to create filler for the sole purpose of milking the length of the series. They probably also have some effects-laden scenes coming up that will cost a lot of money and fewer scenes with pairs of people walking through courtyards.

Side note: I've been re-reading Clash of Kings and noticed that Martin makes a point more than once of mentioning Melisandre's ruby necklace. It's one of those things that you don't really notice at first, but which now seems possibly important.

I imagine those six episodes of Season 8 will be quite densely packed.

Shoot, there will be at least two battles for seven of the episodes I figure. The taking of King's Landing in probably the second or third episode, and the taking of the Wall as the finale most likely?

Ha. There's a legit betting site that has who will Arya kill first next season, who's the first overall death in the season, and who will be the final leader in the show.

Jaime Lannister has the best odds to die first, then a White Walker.
Arya is to kill either Thoros of Myr or Beric Dondarrion apparently.
