It Sounds Like “Game of Thrones” May Never Write in That “ASoIaF” Character

Fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series (like ourselves) waited with baited breath for a big final scene to play out during the “Game of Thrones” Season 4 finale, but sadly it never came.

And it may never come.

Just like winter. And Dany’s dragons. And those white walkers. And the last two books in the series.

WARNING: There are spoilers for the end of A Storm of Swords below. Read the epilogue first and then get back to us.

You have been warned.

Spoilers.

Are.

Coming.

To sum things up: we eagerly awaited the arrival of Lady Stoneheart, AKA the resurrected Catelyn Stark — basically just a revenge seeking BAMF who would have ended the season finale with a shocking bang. But we didn’t get her.

Even scarier? According to actress Michelle Fairley, we may never get her.

When asked about the decision to leave Catelyn’s return out of Season 4, Fairley replied, “Yeah, the character’s dead. She’s dead.”

“You respect the writers’ decision. I knew the arc, and that was it. They can’t stick to the books 100 percent. It’s impossible—they only have 10 hours per season. They have got to keep it dramatic and exciting, and extraneous stuff along the way gets lost in order to maintain the quality of brilliant show.”

Silly us expecting actual material from the books to be represented. 20,000 more minutes of fabricated Bran plot lines please.
