I think the prevailing theory on Reddit is that Coldhands is not Benjen. Personally I've no opinion, these books are so involved I can't keep it all straight.

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

The main evidence against Coldhands = Benjen is the Child of the Forest saying he died long ago and that why would a very, very long lived being like a CotF claim a guy who died approx. two years before died "long ago?" Personally, I think there's been way too much focus on that line, but I dunno if Coldhands is Benjen or not. Could see it happening; could it not as well.

Either way, I don't think they'd cast Benjen's actor as Coldhands if they bring CH into the show. His very enigmatic nature means they'd have to cast someone else to play the concealed character even if they plan on revealing him as Benjen later.

And as we wind toward the end of filming, there's still time for one new casting: Russian actor Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, the Magnar of Thenn.

Do you think they are going to combine father and son into one character to cut down on the people to keep track of?

I actually thought that the TV version of Thormund Giantsbane was a bit of a mix of the books' Thormund with the Magnar, so I'm sort of surprised that they've opted to include the Magner also.

I imagine there'll be better-quality versions of of this up in the near future, but here's a whole five seconds of surprisingly spoilery new footage from Season 4 of Game of Thrones, as part of HBO's year-end teaser.

Tyrion in chains... although thankfully the clips don't show you why this is

Tyrion in chains and Sansa at the Eyrie would be the obvious ones (in the latter case, while set photos and other pictures of Sophie Turner already suggested this, it looks like there's not going to be any "Alayne Stone" hair on the show).

And here's a 15-seconds teaser trailer by HBO Adria. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih3WsEKmID0

There's no way for anyone who hasn't read the books to figure out she's in the Eyrie from that shot. Heck, people who have read the books aren't sure she is in the Eyrie in that shot - there's been a discussion about it on the Forum of Ice and Fire, and some people think she's still in King's Landing in that shot. The background in that shot looks very strange and unfinished, as if they hadn't done the post-production on it; some have even speculated it's fake to cover up the actual location.

And how do we know she's not having darker hair in the Eyrie? Have there been any set photos of Sophie at the Eyrie? I've only seen the ones from Dubrovnik/KL.

I don't know why he didn't push for more mysticism in the Bran scenes, and they kind of glossed over how significant it was for him to warg into another human (Hodor).
Lots of magical elements from the books have been cut. The showrunners prioritise tits over magic, as a means of making the show more accessible to non-fantasy fans.

I do like this show quite a bit, but it's hard for me to discuss it without launching in to a negative rant about.. just about any element.
Yes, the order of importance on the TV show is: tits > people snarking at each other > politics (mostly shown through people snarking at each other) > magic things that make for spectacular TV (dragons, wights etc.) > mysticism, backstory and overall themes.

People who only watch the show are probably wondering why the book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire. If they even know what it's called.

We don't know for sure, but she never changed her hair at any point during filming, so the only way the hair change is happening is if it's a wig (she also, for instance, had red hair in Iceland when filming Vale stuff, so again, wig is the only option). Which could be the case, for all we know, but considering Turner's hair is dyed red to begin with, I don't know why they wouldn't just dye it again.
