“A Song of Ice and Fire” and the “Game of Thrones” TV series have diverged a long time ago. There are, however, some elements of the plot in the TV series that may be the same in the upcoming book “Winds of Winter.”

A new thread on Reddit examines certain elements in the series that may be featured in the book. Some of the more recent events in the show are Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) victory against Stannis (Stephen Dillane), the death of Barristan Selmy (Ian McElhinney) and the murder of Doran (Alexander Siddig), Trystane (Toby) and Areo Hotah (Deobia Oparei) by the Sand Snakes.

Perhaps the biggest thing to happen on the show is the resurrection of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) by Melisandre (Carice van Houten). The Lord Commander will leave the Night’s Watch and will become the new King in the North, if the books are to follow the series.

Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) will be captured by the Dothraki, only to emerge as the true leader and Khaleesi of all Dothraki. She will lead her combined armies west to take the Iron Throne.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) will become the queen in Westeros after killing all her enemies in one fatal blow. She will also have to pay the price for power as none of her children will survive. This will also set up the final battles in Westeros as the main enemy finally makes his move in the north.

The Night King is set to break through the Wall in “Winds of Winter.” Fans will get to read about how Hodor (Kristian Nairn) got his name while saving Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright). There is also the pending reveal that the White Walkers were created by the Children of the Forest while at war against the First Men.
