    If Mace was holding out to marry his daughter into the royal family, it makes sense (and, indeed, in the books we're told he wants her to wear a crown). The Tyrells are one of the most powerful houses in the realm; even if it didn't pan out, he would easily be able to find a good match among one of his own bannermen or one of the other great houses.

    What do you see Ros getting up to this season? Will she continue to be serve as an exposition witnessing whore or will she get some kind of story arc?

    The new trailer has a quick shot of her crying while Littlefinger consoles her, so it looks like she has at least somewhat of a story arc.

    Could just be her usual reaction to seeing Pycelle naked.

    Margaery was older than Joffrey in the books as well, although the age difference was more like 3 or so years. They haven't changed Joffrey's age here, he's still about 13 years old even though Jack Gleeson is nearly 20.

    So yeah, they're just going to age up Margaery a bit so she's about 19 or so; that way we won't have to swallow Natalie Dormer as a teenager. And they'll just highlight the age difference.

    No, Joffrey is 3 years older than the books as well. He is at least 15 (or 16).

    All characters are ~3 years older than in the books.

    I do agree about the Margery casting concern. The actress seems too old, but we'll see how it is handled.

    Some folks were surprised to learn that Jack Gleeson was 19 years old when filming GoT season 1. But I guess with Dormer it's more obvious in appearance.

    Is Joffrey older in the show? I figured he was about the same age as Sansa who's been aged up to 13/14 (and Sophie Turner really is only 15, she's just really tall).

    Actually, doesn't that tie in a bit better with what happens in the later books anyway? Her being a significant amount of years older and more mature kind of adds credence to some of the... consternation... in AFFC, etc.

    Cheers,

    Looks like a certain scene with Davos and Melisandre is being left intact. Not sure whether to be happy or disturbed by that.

    This is a poster released from HBO as part of its fan appreciation events going on in the Social Media world.

    I like the use of the quote with the house sigil on a Wolf Fur.

    *sigh* I wish they'd stop teasing about the Red Wedding.
    We know it won't happen this season. It can't.













    Or can it?

    It can't, it won't and it shouldn't.
