'Game of Thrones': How will upcoming seasons differ from the books? - CSMonitor.com

Stashed in: Game of Thrones!
Truthfully speaking, Game of Thornes has always taken liberties with its adaptation of the source material; hell, they even found a way to make the infamous “Red Wedding” even more gruesome and shocking than the books did. And with other actors from the series claiming that season 4 will have even more death in it, one can only guess what showrunners D.B. Weiss,David Benioff and co. have in mind for big events like the “Purple Wedding” and the subsequent events that follow in this game-changing chapter of the Westeros saga.
Ugh, the Purple Wedding.
I'm disgusted, and yet... I can't wait!
So what does that mean for Joffrey and Margaery? Will theirs be an event to remember for its exorbitance, or will something of a more substantive nature come out of their union? Martin, unsurprisingly, is just as remarkably unhelpful answering these questions. Here’s what he had to say:
“[The wedding scenes] look spectacular. The bride’s dress incorporates roses, there are 77 courses at the dinner feast, and there’s some wonderful halftime entertainment.” *
* Somebody's gonna die.
Yes, yes, and yes.
But you can't go by what happens in the books since they've demonstrated a willingness to deviate from them!
