IIRC, the direwolves are CG this season. Grey Wind looks great. I can't wait to see Ghost.
Yeah, he looks very CG in the trailer.

GQ featured Emilia Clarke in their Details section. She noted how the show is going to start diverging more and more from the books and gave a humorous warning to George R. R. Martin:

Hmm, I was wondering if the show could get away with diverging from the books, sounds like we might find out. I wonder how much input GRRM when it comes to the changes they make.
Does she dye her hair for the season or is it a wig?

Well he wrote episode nine of this season so he's clearly quite a bit involved.

He has no executive power though, he is mostly just along for the ride as much as they're willing to entertain his desire to be a part of the production. It is good for PR too, which helps them wanting to keep him in the credits.

He (GRRM) is listed as an executive producer, but yes that is only in name only. HBO and David Benioff/D.B. Weiss have control over it and can do whatever they want.

Ah, that'll probably be the one that starts Theon's storyline (if we don't see Robb letting him go earlier).

Thanks a lot. Now I'm having flashbacks to Aeron Damphair's chapters in AFfC. The horror...

They should have gotten Robbie Coltrane for Damphair, most pictures of him make him look like Hagrid anyways.

And the lack of such stunt casting is exactly why the casting is as good as it is.
