With last night episode many things get clear regarding the show and where is it headed in season 7 next year in 2017, but now the makers make few thing official about their adaptation of the narrative of Game Of Thrones which followed George R. R. Martins book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” and was said to have been done adapting the show by season 5. Which made it clear that season 6 of Game of Thrones would carry its own premise, storyline, and narrative disregards to Martins book series, but now the show has finally come to close and as we look back in time we realize that Season 6 did adapt some of the book materials for the show. And now the show has ran out of book series material and that means everything the follows in season 7 would completely be original to its context of narrative.
But that comes much later in 2017 somewhere in mid or late April when Game Of Thrones Season 7 premiers. Well for season 6, not entirely but there some of the most important events took place which made us feel the book presence in the show more. But again these sequences from the book were interpreted in the most uncertain way. Looking at the last Sunday season 6 finale episode “The Winds Of Winter” it had three of such moment which were mere reflexive of the book sequences.
Such as the Death of Grand Maester Pycelle which was taken by the Qyburn in the show, the book depicts this scene as Maester been killed not by Qyburn but instead is the result of Varys plan to prepare for the forthcoming Targaryen invasion in King’s Landing. So It’s Kevan Lannister who discovers the death of Pycelle in his chamber, been killed by Varys.
Next screen version adapted from the book version is the death of Walder Frey which in the book takes place by Northern Lord named Wyman Manderly whom we saw in the finale episode among all the northern houses in the court meeting called at Winterfell and it’s him who take Jon as the King of the North. But in the book his make is presence among the Boltons when he reaches Winterfell to sworn his loyalty to Lord Roose Bolton but with secret plans and land among the Freys who had killed his family members during the event off Red Wedding. Thus a true Stark loyalist from inside make an attempt to kill the Frey kids, butcher and slicing them up Wyman prepares the Frey Pie and present to Walder Frey, finally killing him too on his own. But in the finale of the season 6, the television version of the same had misplaced their characters but have kept the scene quite the same to have Walder Frey be killed but by the hands of Arya Stark.
One of the most promising sequences from the book series that was introduced last Sunday on the finale was the sequence about Bran’s vision of Tower of Joy. Within which lies Lyanna Stark sister of Ned Stark bleeds heavily and in pain followed by a childbirth. This was the most honest of them all, where the makers kept the essence of the scene from the book to the screens quite real and brought us all to the conclusive answer to the question about Jon’s parentage. From very long the followers were quite keen on this particular revelation about who would be Jon’s mother and comes out this scene from The Winds of Winter highlighted and brought up the revelation in the most emotional manner.
So those sequences we saw in The Winds of Winter were the final book material of A Song of Ice and Fire, adapted in the show and Game Of Thrones Season 7 will have a completely fresh premise nothing part of George R. R. Martins book.
