Saturday Waffling (April 12th, 2015)
Today’s waffles are served up courtesy of Jacob Solstice, who makes music, which you can listen to here. The album is called Warrior Kid Meets the Fuzz, which is, if nothing else, entertaining.
If the Patreon, currently at $273, can get that extra $27 of momentum and get to $300 a week, I’ll do Game of Thrones Season Five reviews, much like the Doctor Who reviews that started the Patreon off. A “State of Play” for each episode, followed by a more traditional review, up as fast as I can after the episodes air. I’ll do “The Wars to Come” tomorrow night either way, as a preview, and then we’ll have until next Sunday to get up there, in which case I’ll do “The House of Black and White.”
Until then, between what we know about Season Five and A Feast for Crows/A Dance with Dragons (and let’s go with, as a level of spoiler, anything that is either in or deducible from things HBO or Martin have officially released is fair game in comments), what are you most looking forward to this season?
(For my part, I’ll go with the seemingly very real possibility that Tyrion will be meeting Daenerys instead of spending a book ostentatiously failing to find the plot.)

I gave up on the books after A Clash Of Kings so don't know book specific plot developments but looking forward to less interminable wandering about in landscape, which is the show's equivalent to the long descriptions that did for me on the book front.
Seriously, I'm intrigued about when Jon Snow's parentage is going to get mentioned as something we should be paying attention to and where Jorah Mormont's is going (both locationally & arc-wise).

I'm really interested to see the changes from the books, to be honest. Sansa in Winterfell with the Boltons!?

Jamie going to Dorne?!?!?

…to rescue his daughter?

I too am looking forwards to seeing Tyrion meeting Dany a lot sooner.

I'd watch a whole season cutting back and forth between Arya and Brienne. I'm also hoping to see Missandei and Grey Worm happy together, because even though this is Game of Thrones, it sure looks like they have a shot.
