I'm actually disappointed. The Starks were the only halfway decent family going for the throne. Now we have a young evil king born of brother
and sister, the guy following the red witch, and a hot little blonde with dragons and a zombie-ish army.
So, who gets the throne in the end? I really don't care now, but I'm still going along for the ride.
I'm hoping that Peter Dinklage's Tyrion character kills that demented nephew-king of his and sits on the throne for a while. The army should back him
for his bravery in the first battle.
No spoiler here, as even as of book 5, they haven't gone there yet (who ends up on the throne for a while)
There are still a lot of Starks alive and well (sort of). Rickon is pretty much out of the story when he leaves with the Wyldling chick. Bran is still
seeking his three-eyed crow. Arya is going to pursue her path of vengeance. Sansa has an interesting twist coming up. Jon's future is less certain,
but he's safe for a while (going by the books). Still a lot of Starks on the stage. Another Stark returns too, sort of...you'll just have to see.
My bet is that Littlefinger ends up on it for a time. He seems to be the best "player" of the game, carefully orchestrating his pieces over a long
period of time. His real moves won't be seen in the TV show until next season. His opening move was getting the title, Lord of Harrenhall. May not
seem like much, but this simple title is the first step. You may recally Varyas' conversation with the elder Tyrell lady, where he mentions that
Littlefinger was born without lands, a title, or men, but that now he has one, and imagine if he had all three. He will use the title to get the other
two (through marriage, as the title Lord now makes him an eligible suitor to a mate who has them). Whether or not he can then put himself on the Iron
Throne? Guess we'll see.

You're not TOO far off (though not confirming what is and what isn't right), so no doubt you'll be happy with a lot of the events coming
