This thread is open to both readers and nonreaders for discussion of the show.
******Mild Spoilers Possible******
Nonreaders: You may ask questions of the book readers in this thread pertaining to what is occurring on the show. More sensitive nonreaders who wish to avoid even the mention of the books should not be in this thread.
Readers: Please answer any questions directly without giving away information which would constitute a significant spoiler. Comparison of events in the show to the books is allowed, but keep any discussion or speculation regarding future events in the book readers thread.
Partial Book Readers: If you have read some, but not all of the books, this is the thread for you.
If something is posted which is a borderline spoiler and someone asks you to edit, just be courteous and edit it. No need for the epic bitchfests which have occurred in the past. Blatant spoilers will be RA'd if you won't edit them yourself.
This thread is experimental and may not work at all, but as long as no a-holes show up trying to intentionally ruin things for others some good discussion can be had.
If any significant spoilers get posted, I will update the OP and thread title with appropriate warnings.
Update: Thread is now for the entire season. Please only discuss things which have occurred so far on the show. Try not to discuss any significant info from the books which occurs at a point in time past where the show presently is.
6/12/13 Update - The thread has started getting into some theories, but they so far appear to be based on things shown on the show, from the DVD extras, or contained within the books up to this point. Therefore, I see no major problem with it.
The nonreaders have started a Theory thread and there is off course the reader's Crackpot thread, I guess this will naturally become the Middle Ground Crackpot Thread.
