Not to go all Comic Book Guy, but if they suddenly bust out with a flashback after four seasons of awkward expositions that will be totally jumping the shark. I sat through a Petyr Baelish fisting monologue, I swear to God they had BETTER not start using their brains now.

Sometimes you write a story that goes where, as a member of the audience, you wouldn't want it to go. Because anything else would be dishonest.

While I am definitely worried about many of the omissions, I also think D&D CAN deliver on the main plot points from the books. They'll just have to sail that boat through uncharted waters to get to the same place as GRRM.

I think they could have stuck closer to the books and delivered the same level of satisfaction for TV viewers. At this point, some of their decisions, especially in season 4, seem very puzzling.

I totally agree that losing Tywin, Oberyn, Sandor and Bronn (at least for the time being with the latter two) is going to have a negative effect on the show. Especially on the heals of losing Robb and Catelyn (AND JOFFREY!) Tywin and Sandor are two of the best anti-heroes/villains in the show and Oberyn and Bronn are definitely charismatic fan favourites. I know I was disappointed to lose Oberyn so quickly in the books.

I think the show will be hard pressed to get fans invested in the Greyjoy storyline at this point, having not introduced some of the major players in that storyline yet. When I read Crows and Dragons I enjoyed the history and subplot aspect of the Greyjoys plotline but to be honest I'm not too concerned with any of their fates, other than Asha. I assume their doom is inevitable so I'm not worried about them dying, only how they effect the overall plot (ie. dragons) before their end.

I think the new fan favourite characters will come from Dorne though. I loved finally seeing Dorne in the later books and I think Arianne, Doran, Quentyn, Areo and the Sand Snakes will all become favourites.

Plus the show will benefit from combining books 4 and 5 so we don't go a full season without seeing Tyrion, Daenerys, Jon etc.
