Ok, I'm kinda confused by something. I haven't gotten to ACK yet, but I just read that Margaery Tyrell is marries Joffrey. So does that mean in the show they're going to have a character played by a 30 year old actress married to a character who's played by an actor who appears to be in his mid-to-early teens? Or are they changing that for the show?
Margaery was older than Joffrey in the books as well, although the age difference was more like 3 or so years. They haven't changed Joffrey's age here, he's still about 13 years old even though Jack Gleeson is nearly 20.

So yeah, they're just going to age up Margaery a bit so she's about 19 or so; that way we won't have to swallow Natalie Dormer as a teenager. And they'll just highlight the age difference.
Actually, doesn't that tie in a bit better with what happens in the later books anyway? Her being a significant amount of years older and more mature kind of adds credence to some of the... consternation... in AFFC, etc.

Cheers,

That looks awesome. Anyone have a frame-by-frame discussion of the last part?

Looks like a certain scene with Davos and Melisandre is being left intact. Not sure whether to be happy or disturbed by that.

Game of Thrones coming for the Xbox 360 on April 1st.

http://gizmodo.com/5888933/hbo-go-pu...xbox-april-1st

HBO Go will be available on your Xbox 360 beginning April 1st. Engadget reports that the service will arrive on consoles alongside the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones. Time to consider cable again.
GREAT NEWS. Now you can have access to the entire HBO GO library on your TV

This is a poster released from HBO as part of its fan appreciation events going on in the Social Media world.

I like the use of the quote with the house sigil on a Wolf Fur.

*sigh* I wish they'd stop teasing about the Red Wedding.
We know it won't happen this season. It can't.













Or can it?

It can't, it won't and it shouldn't.

That's a great poster.

It'll probably be the end of the third season.

I both loved and hated the Red Wedding. I loved it because it was so unexpected and such an amazing scene, but I hated it because the North was the only side I was really rooting for in the war.

I think that would be a mistake and extremely depressing. Have it episode 9...or heck move it around and slide it into Season 4. Looks like they are giving Robb a ton of airtime going forward.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I don't think they will end a season with it, though it certainly would fit in with TV traditions to have who's-alive-and-who's-dead kind of cliffhanger. It might also be fun for those of us who, when asked "Who dies??", can say "read the books and you'll find out!"

Just like Ned...?
