Author George R.R. Martin was unable to release “Winds of Winter” before the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 premiere. It is inevitable now for the show to spoil some of the major plot points of the next book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series.

[Spoiler alert]

With Jon Snow’s dead body lying in a pool of blood, it was Davos who took possession of the body in the TV series. He also suggested that the help of the Free Folk be secured in order to fight off the traitors in the Nights’ Watch.

As Davos is on a different quest in “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, he may not be involved in the events at Castle Black. Melisandre may be the one who secures Jon Snows’s body in the books. The Free Folk also admire Jon, so it is possible that they take up arms against the Nights’ Watch for him. Besides, the Free Folk have always hated the Crows and would be willing to fight them given a chance.

Daenerys being taken to Vaes Dothrak in “Winds of Winter” is also logical. The Dothraki have no respect for anything else in the world, but they do honour their traditions. The Khaleesi may be asked to spend the rest of her days with the Dosh Khaleen, but whether she does that or not is a different issue.

Back in King’s Landing, Jaime reuniting with Cersei is an unlikely event. He was last seen with Brienne of Tarth and they were planning to “rescue Sansa” together. Although Jaime is an important character in the TV series and is expected to play an important role in the future events with High Sparrow, the future of the character looks bleak in the book series.

The Sand Sisters taking over Dorne and planning to march on the Lannisters is quite possible in “Winds of Winter.” Unlike the other kingdoms in Westeros, women in Dorne are respected and they have rights. The clash between these two families appears to be inevitable in both the TV series and the books.
