    Yes, but their plumbing is intact, albeit internal.

    To pour more fuel on this fire...

    In that article, the showrunners comment that seven seasons seem to be the magic number for them. Assuming that S4 is the rest of Book 3 (with the usual allowance for wandering plotlines here & there), that leaves three seasons to cover the last four books. That some serious condensing.

    Ok, 2014 for S4/B3.5. 2015/2016/2017 for the rest of the TV series. Even if GRRM publishes sooner than ever, Book 6 won't be before 2014, and more likely 2015. Does anyone really think he'll get the finale Book 7 out two years later?

    Methinks HBO needs to start plotting their endgame now. Cause there ain't no way he concludes it sooner than they do.

    Not a pretty scenario.

    I posted the same scenario 1-2 weeks ago, and I completely agree.

    If they go with 7 seasons then there is absolutely no way that he will have book 7 done in time. I think the number of seasons they are going to do is probably the key disconnect between Martin and the showrunners.

    Same here. There's plenty of stuff in those gigantic books that can be cut. Plenty.

    and not cauterized. Because otherwise he would have bled to death.

    Of all the things they could focus on with 10 hours of film to cover hundreds of pages, Theon's waterworks was a very poor choice. Discuss it or have it in a letter if it's important to the story, but a scene with a sausage? Even if that's in the book, skip it.

    You are assuming they cover all te written material. That may not be a good assumption.

    All of a guys "plumbing" is pretty much internal, too. The portion that is in the penis is just a simple tube. Shorten the tube all you like, and the only think you really lose is the ability to aim it, which makes it basically the same as a girl.

    Also:
    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_eunuch_pee_when_they_don't_have_penises

    Interestingly, if you search google for "eunuch urinate", the first result is "How does Lord Varys urinate".

    I think that really depends on how big a role Ramsey Bolton plays in the upcoming story. If it is significant, then this does sort of help establish just what a creep he is.

    How old is GRRM? Not to sound gruesome, but he looks old and out of shape. I suppose, at the rate he's going, it's entirely possible there may never be a book 7, or at least a completed version. Has he spelled out to the HBO producers what the end game for the series is supposed to be?

    Yes.

    And he's also given them the go-ahead to, well, go ahead if they pass him.

    The tv series can always film more Theon torture scenes if it starts to catch up to the books.

    I think they are going to spin that off into another series. Game of Torture :)

    I am geographically confused about something.

    Sam used the dragonglass to kill one of The Others, at which point he and Gilly were (I thought) still north of, and trying to make their way to, The Wall. Bran & company were (I thought) holed up somewhere near, but south of, The Wall. If Sam & Gilly were trying to get to The Wall from the north, how/why did they run into Bran & Co. south of The Wall?

    That whole storyline is annoying to me. Bran's extensive coverage of his "journey" is as useless as the torture scenes, IMO.

    I haven't watched the episode but from what I gathered reading here (I think) Sam knew of a secret passage under the wall and it came out where Bran was. Which I assume will come in handy since Bran is trying to get to the other side to continue his journey with Ferb.

    As to Sam and Bran, Bran's team was holed up in the Nightfort. Sam also happened to be aiming for the Nightfort because he knew of a secret passage underneath the wall that led to it. They just happened to get there the same night. So when Sam reached the south side of the wall, there was Bran and team ready to go north.

    Agreed. Just because the reservoir is internal doesn't mean that most of the plumbing is. There are other plumbing connections externally that are very important.
