Game Of Thrones Book Club | Season Five Preview Show

Listen to the Podcast

Welcome to the final GAME OF THRONES Book Club of the off-season!

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@terri_schwartz) gather together one last time before their watch of season five begins. However, Terri’s watch has already started. She’s seen the first four episodes of season five, and she’s offering some teases about what she likes, what she doesn’t, and when we can expect to see familiar faces popping up over the first handful of episodes.

Beyond covering Terri’s first impressions of season five, Josh and Terri discuss George R.R. Martin’s recent claim that he will finish THE WINDS OF WINTER before season six airs next year, Terri’s new interview with THRONES co-showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and some questions from listeners like you!

The regular season GAME OF THRONES Book Club podcasts begin next week, with a live show on April 13 at 11:30 AM ET / 8:30 AM PT.

Send your questions and comments along to Josh and Terri on Twitter, in the comments section below, or through our feedback form.

    I’m so excited for this season. I think the things i’m most excited for, are the things that they are changing from the book that we know about actually. I’m going to ennjoy being surprised, and finally putting that nail in the coffin of seperation between the books and the show, allowing us to analyze the two as their own distinct things, that dont have to be beholden to eachother.

    • Sophia

      I agree. Throughout the seasons I learned to accept that the book and the show are different pathways to the same ending and to enjoy the show on it’s own. So now I’m really pumped up to see how some of the character storylines are going to diverge and it’s going to be cool to not know for sure what will happen all the time.

    Great job, guys!

    I think Keval and Tommen’s death will be in the finale. You don’t open season with prophecy about death of Cersei’s children without killing at least one of them.

    I also think Trystane+Myrcella = Arianne+FAegon. They’ll just go with Arianne’s plot from the books. King Trystane, Queen Myrcella.

    And i don’t think we will get Batlle of Meeren. We will get battle of ice in beginning of season six. But two battles? That’s too much even for GoT. All key players for Battle of Winterfell are in the show. But not for Meeren. Greyjoys are cut, there are rumors about ser Barristan’s death this season. I think that the battle in the books will end with massive destruction of the city by dragons and the death’s of Victaryon and Barristan. And the in the show Viseryon and Rhaegal will just burn the city in the finale.

    What are the odds we get the return of Blackfish Tully and/or Edmure? Who have both been MIA since Red Wedding? Fingers Firmly crossed. if they do come back, how would they bring them back in to the story (in show purposes, not the book)

  • Are we getting the Darkstar Gerold Dayne this season? Sand Snakes aren’t the only deadly fighters I want to see while drinking my Dornish wine.

    • Brendan Fitzpatrick

      I feel like introducing the Dayne’s at this point (or any other minor houses in Dorne) might be a step too far in the minor character realm. I would say outlook is not good on that one.

  • Rubicon

    I love that a new season of The Book Club is starting.

    Josh and Terri are so good at breaking eveything down.
