Cool to see a little bit of Stannis, Davos, and Melisandre even if it's only quick glimpses. I can't wait for April.

Re: Game of Thrones season 2 anticipation - HBO shows footage

Damn...Renly looks good with that crown.
Joff's crossbow seems a tad long. Size issues?

I'm so happy about that teeni tiny glimpse of Brienne.

Edit: If you're an Unsullied, don't read the comments. Spoilers abound.

I was a little disappointed in the brief glance we got of Stannis, he doesn't look hard enough. But then again it's just a glance.

Re: Game of Thrones season 2 anticipation - HBO shows footage

I always wondered what a Baratheon-styled Crown would look like, Renly shows it pretty good.

I'm guessing that woman is Margaery Tyrell?

Yeah, that's Margaery. She's being played by Natalie Dormer. I find the casting interesting because Margaery was in her, what, mid-to-late teens in the books? Whereas Dormer is almost thirty.

Wait, where was Brienne? I totally missed that.

EDIT: Oh wait, is that her behind Renly? Geez, I'm amazed people could even catch that, much less make it out as Brienne.

Well, Stannis looks just about nothing like my mental image of him. I imagined him a much more imposing figure. Davos, though, looks like he just about leaped off the page.

Margarey doesn't really resemble the book character in any way I pictured while reading the books. I can undestand upping her age... But they did that with Dany and it didn't destroy the character. Natalie Dormer is too old to play Margarey especially when you consider future implications for the character. They could have found a 18-22 year old actress you could play 16ish-18ish.

And I guess I just don't see Natalie Dormer as beautiful as Margarey is pretty much regarded in the books.
