My friend is worried that the TV show is going to catch up to the books.
There's no question. He can't possibly stay ahead of them. The show has been renewed for two seasons. The writers suggested that they might condense the next two books but I can't see them doing that now. They will follow the books even less from here but will squeeze two seasons from the two remaining books, padded with extra action for the ADD viewers. By that time maybe, just maybe, he'll be finished the 6th book and they can consider their options again. But even if they do make it to that 6th book (7th season), they'll be fucked thereafter. Lots of conjecture about what happens then. GRRM suggested going back to some of his other works and doing prequels, which would drive everybody round the bend. Who knows the show might lose a bit of momentum and get cancelled. Maybe a movie for the last book (if it even is the last).

I think a lot of people are just assuming that because the writers know what happens in the end that they'll be somehow allowed to just plough ahead. I know they've handled the material really well but I still can't see that happening. That has to be the ultimate sacrifice for a writer. Let somebody else shoot the load of your magnum opus - nah.

I don't really understand how this thing can reasonably end. Surely the whole set up is contrary to achieving unity or harmony. It just has to stop at some point. Unless, like in real life, where the only unity to the world could arise nuclear destruction, the unity is the ultimate icy fiery death of everyone. That would be coooool.

Consider how The Wire or The Sopranos ended, the viewers just left but the world was set up to just carry on, There seems to be too much going on in GOT for them to tie everything up, so either they leave, or like you said, everyone dies.

And no, Tony did not fucking die at the end.
