[dropcap]G[/dropcap]eorge R. R. Martin was writing one episode for the series in the first four seasons, but in the 5th season he will not write due to he is trying to finish the sixth book named The Winds of Winter.

Game of Thrones season five differences will probably effect the future of the series. The first episode of the fifth season will be aired on April 12, 2015.

As most of you have noticed there are more and more changes in each season. In the first two seasons there were only minor differences between the book and the series but starting with the 3rd season David Benioff and Dan Weiss started to change the series.

Major Changes in the First Four Seasons

Some major changes for the first four seasons are;

  • Some of the characters have died in the show but still living in the books, for example: Khal Drago’s friend Mago, Pyp and Gren for Night’s Watch and Jojen Reed the Warg.
  • The White Walkers take new-borns from Craster’s and change them to baby white walkers in the show but we did not read anything about changing in the books. This is either a spoiler from the future books or just added for the show.
  • We could not see Coldhands and Stoneheart in the show. Most of the fans are waiting to see at least one of the Coldhands or Stoneheart but none of them shown in the show. In the books, Bran was saved by a mysterious character name Coldhands and Catelyn was transformed to Lady Stoneheart after dead. There is still a chance to see both of them in the show.
  • Most of the characters is way too young in the books but much older in the show. Daenerys was 13 when she has married to Khal Drago and Jon Snow was just 14 when he dedicates his life to the Wall.

What changes to expect in season five. Probably this, fifth, season will diverge from the books much more than the previous seasons.

  • Sir Gregor Clayne or The Mountain is returning from the dead,
  • Catelyn Stark has gone and seems to be no Lady Stoneheart for the fifth season,
  • Tyrion and Daenerys have joined too early in the shows,
  • Varys was just disappearing in the books but in the show he has joined with Tyrion,
  • Jon Connington and Aegon Targaryen will not be in the fifth season, hope to see them in the sixth season. Thinking the show will be 10 seasons, probably they will be in sixth or seventh seasons.
  • Jaime Lannister and Bronn was heading down to Dorne instead of lifting the siege at Riverrun.
  • Kingsmoot and Iron Islands probably will be shown in the sixth season,

Fift Season Will Spoil the Books

The fifth season will spoil the books. David Beniof said in Oxford Union that they will change the course of the events in the show but eventually will meet at the same point.

Luckily, we’ve been talking about this with George for a long time, ever since we saw this could happen, and we know where things are heading. And so we’ll eventually, basically, meet up at pretty much the same place where George is going; there might be a few deviations along the route, but we’re heading towards the same destination. I kind of wish that there were some things we didn’t have to spoil, but we’re kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. The show must go on… and that’s what we’re going to do.
