Seven hells! The scheduled postmortem chat will be rescheduled due to technical difficulties (we blame Littlefinger). Stay tuned for an update on date and time.

Hello, friends and bannermen. If Game of Thrones can break the rules for its "massive" finale, so can we. Instead of our usual By the Book column, is hosting a special live version of our chat this week where you, our not-so-gentle readers, can participate.

This weekly chat series is for fans of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, upon which HBO's fantasy drama is based. It's meant to be a safe haven to discuss spoilers and changes from the novels and how they have played out or will play out in the TV series. Hanh Nguyen and Sadie Gennis are longtime fantasy fans of varying levels of geekiness who will sound off on all things Westerosi (and beyond!). 

How did the finale match up with the books? How did it differ? Can you finally make fun of Sadie and Hanh to their faces? (Answer: Hodor.)
