While enduring George R.R. Martin's agonizingly slow writing pace, obsessive fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire series have scoured the books' extensive mythology for clues on how the saga might play out. The problem: many of the storylines on Game of Thrones, the wildly popular TV adaptation, have moved past where they stood at the end of 2011's A Dance With Dragons, the most recently published novel in Martin's best-selling series. The show has further complicated speculation efforts by altering important plot points and introducing entirely new ones into the mix, as well.
