One Of The Most Heartbreaking ‘Game Of Thrones’ Moments Is Confirmed For The Book Series



WARNNG: Game of Thrones spoilers will appear in this post. If you’ve yet to watch season five, the series up to this point, read the books, or heard about it from a nerdy friend, don’t read this post.

There have been plenty of moments where Game of Thrones has diverged from George R.R. Martin’s book series. The HBO hit has excised characters, shortened plotlines, and added sequences that either did not happen in the books or has yet to appear. Hardhome from season five is a fine example of something the television series did that was above and beyond what the book alluded to.

Another group of moments that happened on the show, but haven’t been in the books yet revolve around Stannis Baratheon and his family. Not only is Stannis still questionably alive in the book series — questionable because we don’t actually know he’s fully dead on the show — but his daughter is also still among the living.
