Fans of the Game of Thrones novels and TV show will be faced with a dilemma when season five begins to air in Spring 2015, HitFix reports. This will be the first season where the TV show has moved ahead of the books written by George R.R. Martin in terms of release, leaving fans of the novels with a difficult choice regarding the number of spoilers released during the airing of the new season, which will begin before the release of The Winds of Winter novel.
The final episodes of season four began the problems for fans of both the novels and TV show with the arrival of the Night’s King, the leader of the mysterious group known as The Others. The problem for fans like Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez watching the show was that Martin has yet to feature Night’s King in any published novel, the arrival of the character and his prominence in the final episodes hinted at a character who would feature heavily in The Winds of Winter.
Twitter followers of members of the cast and crew have already been privy to some cryptic tweets and images from the set giving a glimpse into the locations and plot lines to come.
