I still think Bianco is the most likely candidate.
I just looked up Kekilli on Wikipedia and found out she was in the film Head On, which I watched long before I'd even heard of the ASoIaF books. It's a German/Turkish movie about a German Turkish couple who meet and marry as a to get her away from her strict parents after a pair of failed suicide attempts. It's not exactly a happy movie, but I enjoyed it.

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

Thanks! Curious what your observations are and if they differ much from my own handful of read-throughs of the series.

You might consider some more polished and composed cover art though, and I would be happy to oblige just out of my own enthusiasm for the series. Especially in this day of ebooks and "people also liked..." thumbnails, an eyecatching and professional cover can make a world of difference.

Not fun for fans, but probably a good decision: "Blackwater" got season-low ratings airing over the Memorial Day weekend, and you don't want that to happen to the series' single most pivotal and shocking episode to date. With luck, the buzz from episode nine will push the episode ten audience to another new high.

The royal wedding isn't for this season, I suppose?

No. Probably early-mid next season. Then build to Tyrion's trial and other such things for the climax.

George R. R. Martin is writing episode 2 of next season, so I'm hoping we'll get Joffrey's wedding then. Of course, if that's the plan, they're either going to stretch the trial out unmercifully, or reach the end of A Storm of Swords early and do some of the overlapping chapters from Feast and Dance to round out the season.

Don't know why so many people think Martin will write the Purple Wedding. Of the "event" episodes, David Benioff & D. B. Weiss have written "Baelor" and will write "The Rains of Castamere". Martan's only event episode was "Blackwater".

At this moment, each season of GOT has started slow and building up to huge events. I also think it will be bad writing to have the trial take so many episodes. You don't sideline your leading actor for that long.
