It was my impression that they wrote the Reed's out of the show anyway - they should have already been introduced by now for Bran's trip to the Wall.
It's been confirmed that the Reeds are among the new characters in season 3, so they aren't being written out, just introduced late.
Odd to have Myranda Royce in season 3; she doesn't appear in the books until late in A Feast for Crows
. They might be using the name for a very different character. I see speculation that she's being merged with Mya Stone, but neither character would have much role in the next season's worth of story.
