I'm reading book five right now, and is a active editor when the show airs. I wanna ask about Griff, Young Griff and Arstan Whitebeard. If the show create the characters (Griff and Young Griff) under their aliases, is we gonna create fake articles until the show reveals who they really is. I want to hear my fellow editors what they think.Mesmermann (talk) 13:03, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

This may also be a problem with the "Boy" played by Rheon. In general, it doesn't seem that the TV series will keep secret identities secret for long, i.e. Arstan Whitebeard was introduced in Book 2 or so but only revealed later. Given that we're *seeing* him on-screen...I'd compare it to how the Lord of the Rings films didn't attempt to hide from the audience that "Dernhelm" was realy Eowyn, because while in a book you can hide this, in a visual medium the audience can tell its Eowyn. This might be an issue for secret identities maintained across many seasons....but in practice, I think they're only going to keep those identities secret for only a few episodes, based on how they've condensed everything, and yes, in keeping with the no-spoilers policy, we shouldn't point such things out until they're stated on screen (we won't have to wait long to reveal their real identities). --The Dragon Demands (talk) 16:44, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
With Arstan, they can't hide it. But with Griff and Young Griff they can hide it for the non-fans of the books. What are they also gonna do with Coldhands. We may know him or may not, but if we have seen him before on the series, they can't hide the man he was before. We may get his story in the next book instead be a big mystery.--Mesmermann (talk) 18:17, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
