As Epic as the show might seem, there are numerous inconsistencies between the show and the original books by George R. R. Martin. For various reasons, many details were omitted although some were essential for the plot (according to thousands of readers at least).
Here are the 11 Book Facts That we think The Game Of Thrones Show should have demonstrated.
1 Daario's colored beard
No, we aren't exaggerating. Daario Nahaaris, as well as his mate Tyroshis, all had multi-colored beards shaped like tridents. As you can see, it's not that much bad ass as we have imagined it.
2 Tyrion's role in the Battle of Blackwater
In the Book, Tyrion had fought spectacularly in the Battle of Blackwater. He was the one who made the wild fire which helped to win the Battle of the Blackwater Bay. In addition, he fought alongside his soldiers showing great amounts of courage, in contrast to his counterpart Joffrey the King who was scared shitless and was oblivious to what to do. Yet in the show we only see a glimpse of what he do.
3 Arianna Martell
We could forgive some slight changes, but extracting a whole character is outrageous! Arianna Martell was a great character in the book but was removed from the show. This Dornish Princess is the firstborn of Doran and an heir to the throne! Unlike our fucked up reality, In Dorne, women actually have the same rights as men do, including the inheritance. sadly we didn't see this wonderful character.
4 The Relationship between the Lannister brothers
The show didn't show the magnitude of the drama between the two brothers. While we see that the two did relatively well together on the show, but in reality, the book demonstrated a torn relationship between the brothers and marked the end of their relationship.
5 Ser Barritsan Selmy stays alive
In the book, Ser Barristan doesn't get killed but the show managed to send him to the tomb and many other characters whose numbers surpass the ones in the book.
6 Mance Rayder also Stays alive
The "Save Mance Rayder" operation was brilliant. For Mance escaped his execution and the Lord of Bones was spelled by Melisandre to clone him! He was sadly burnt instead of Mance.
7 Varays reveals himself
unlike the show, at the end of book five, Varys takes a crossbow, kills Kevan Lannister, and reveals that he has been targeting Targaryens for the whole time.
8 At The House of the Undying
Dany is one of our favorite characters, and it's really painful not to see a major part of her endeavors. The House Of the Undying would have been a really good chapter if it didn't abandon great details such as the mysterious prophecies and the equally undying themselves.
9 Arya's meeting with Sam
Aya met Sam Tarly in Braavos and recognized his Night's Watch uniform. She saved him from Braavosi Thugs and provided him with food when he was starving. This led to her murdering sam's traveling partner who was supposed to get some food throughout singing in local pubs, but chose instead to desert Night's Watch and married a prostitute. How nice of her.
10 Jaime getting mad with Cersei
In the book, things weren't smooth between Cersei and Jaime. After the latter lost his arm, his character changed dramatically. He was angry for what cersei had turned to and the love between them decreased.
