^That is true. But Ramsay's introduction was a means of keeping Alfie Allen in the show during the time his character was 'offscreen' in the books. Would they introduce Griff before the trial/death by crossbow/fugitive Tyrion? Surely they have enough characters and sub-plots without introducing a new one?

Or maybe Tyrion will go on the run before the end of the season.

I hope we get less new material this year. It isn't what the writers are good at.

Yeah, that does seem a bit early. Then again, we saw some early Theon/Reek stuff before we should have, chronologically, so could be...
I thought that Ramsay was torturing Theon throughout "Storm of Swords".

^Offscreen (or off-page, technically). It's actually happened in the TV show at the right time, it's just that we're actually seeing it, as oppose to Theon remembering it in his POV chapters.

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

Deadline Hollywood (a typically reliable business-slanted entertainment news site) is reporting that Huisman will replace another actor. Lots of suggestions in the comments at Winter is Coming, but no consensus on who it might be, if there really is another recasting.

I would've thought he's too young for Martyll but it wouldn't be the first time they've changed a character's age. If it is a recast, then he does seem a likely candidate.

Supposedly he is replacing the actor Ed Skrein as the sellsword Daario Naharis.

The previous actor didn't make much of an impression on me so I'm fine with that. It's not like they're recasting anybody vital like Jaime or Sansa .

Interesting. Speaking of actor switch-overs, does anyone know if the original actor who played Gregor Clegayne is coming back for S4?

I'd really hope so, otherwise the Oberyn duel will be shitty.

Agreed. He was a much better Mountain.

I think Conan Stevens was busy with The Hobbit during filming for Season Two, so hopefully now that that's over with he'll return as the Mountain.

Stevens had a falling out of some sort with the producers, so he won't be back. The new Mountain is one of their VFX guys (he "plays" the White Walkers whenever they appear).
