Is that right? What does Theon do in book 5? He tricks the Iron Islands people into surrendering, and then he's in play when Stannis marches on Winterfell, right? So the Iron Islands stuff could come into play earlier, I guess?
Like a third of ADWD is Theon almost, he's like the main character along with Jon and Tyrion pretty much. Theon gives a direct insight into all that the Bastard and Roose Bolton are doing. The taking of the neck Ironborn garrison, the planning of the wedding with fake Arya, the wedding with fake Arya and all the Dustin interaction, the interaction with Mance and his women, the escape with fake Arya, and finally meeting up with Stannis. He does like 5 times as much stuff as Dany really.
For Dany, don't they have the whole murder investigations and her becoming a proper Mereneese and the fighter pits closing in Mereen stuff to do with Dany that comes before Quentin's and Tyrion's arrival? Also, perhaps they'll push some of the Book 3 stuff in with the Season 4 stuff.
They are splitting book 3 into two seasons, so yeah season 4 will be her parts in the second half of ASOS with the taking of Astapor.
I'm talking more about seasons 5 and 6, where all Dany does is sit around and rule Mereen crappily, banging her sellsword and marrying the douche. The only highlights of her parts in book 5 happen at the end when she flies off on the dragon, which is like almost 3/4 through the book. Otherwise she is just sitting around whining and trying to decide whether to marry Hizdawhatever.
