    Jon Snow ordering them to hang Janos Slynt was fucking awesome. Then doing it himself with Longclaw. Awww yeah. I wanted to fist pump. Feel like such a nerd haha. This book is going to be good.

    I just finished book 4 so forgive me if this was already posted but it pissed me off.
    Also, are we putting book 4 thoughts in spoilers as well, since this is the former "book" thread?

    Just to be safe:

    I'm about halfway through and took about a 6 month break in between 3 and 4. Just had a couple questions on plot limes I kind of forgot.

    Spoilers from 1-4

    Does Tyrion kill Tywin, or am I not supposed to know yet? Also why did Jaime let Tyrion out of his cell? How did Theon supposedly die again?

    Also for some of those it may suppose to be a mystery for now, I just wasn't quite sure. I'm halfway through 4 if that helps.

    TIA

    I've really enjoyed 4 so far. I'm about half way through and it was tough for me to get started because everyone kept telling me 4 was bad, but I've enjoyed it as much as any of the others so far.

    Also gonna be pissed if Euron somehow gets to control dragons.

    I'm about 650 pages in to Crows and it's started to pick up a little bit. I just finished Victarion or whatever his name is chapter. Can anyone explain the Pate thing to me? I don't really care about spoilers. I like knowing and looking for shit while I'm reading. Such a good series it's not going to take away anything from it for me. Just like with watching Lost makes it fun.

    You will find out more about "Pate" at the end of the book if you look carefully. Let's just say he makes another appearance, which is a huge clue as to who the alchemist was in the prologue.

    Finished book 4 last night.

    -Haha Cersei, fuck you. Jamie is best twin.
    -The Dorne Prince sucked except for the fact he tried to wed Arianne with Viserys to get back at the Lannisters.
    -Arya is still awesome, along with Littlefinger.
    -Sansa isn't bad now, or it could be that the Lord of the Eyrie is such a faggot.
    -lol at the fat boy king playing with kittens while the others have dragons and direwolves
    -Catelyn sends Brienne to find the girls; kills her for trying to find the girls. :cmonson:
    -Victarion is a bad ass.
    -Congrats to Sam for getting his dick wet.
    -Don't know what the faceless man is up to, but he's a bad ass and needs to show up more.
    -team sand snakes
    -Brienne, Davos, and Loras are alive.
    -The Hound is the gravedigger, and The Mountain is a zombie? Maybe they end up fighting.

    On to book 5

    In the first book Bran has a dream of some monstrous being that was all black or something, and opposing him were a golden man and a man with a snarling hound's head. I think The Hound is the gravedigger as well, and he and Jaime somehow end up fighting Ser Robert Strong aka The Mountain Zombie.

    Found the exact passage:

    "One shadow was dark as ash, with the terrible face of a hound. Another was armored like the sun, golden and beautiful. Over them both loomed a giant in armor made of stone, but when he opened his visor, there was nothing inside but darkness and thick black blood."

    Yeah that's pretty clear.

    I think just about any vision or prophecy is important in these books. You just have to figure them out.

    I just finished my re-read of AFFC and found that I enjoyed Cersei's chapters the most because we finally got to confirm that she was the dumb paranoid cunt we always thought she was, she really was batshit crazy. I found myself wondering how Jamie ever cared about her at all.
