Brb, dying of squee.
The annoying thing about the fourth and fifth books of the Song of Ice and Fire series is that they each deal with completely different sets of characters over the same time period. If you’re a TV!Thrones fan and not a Book!Thrones fan, please just imagine if there were no Tyrion at all for a whole season.
And then there was a six year gap between seasons coming out.
Fandom is pain, man.
