SCOPE No seasons watched

As Game of Thrones the TV show caught up to and surpassed the Ice and Fire novels on which it was originally based, we witnessed a number of characters killed off who still live in the books. In What Is Dead May Never Die, Tower of the Hand profiles some of these would-be dead characters, reviewing their deaths on the show and their current statuses in the books, and speculating whether or not the differences between the two will be reconciled.

This post may discuss events from the first seven seasons of Game of Thrones. It may also discuss events from the books A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons. If you've watched every aired episode through Season 7 and have read all the books to date, set your scope above to Season Seven (2017). Otherwise, we advise you to avoid reading this post as it may contain spoilers.
