    Eh, kinda. Elements of it are incorporated, but no, in S2, Shireen doesn't appear and Selyse only as a background extra standing next to Stannis.

    Honestly, I'd recommend just focusing on reading the books for now and worry about how the show changes or adapts certain things when you get there. You may end up getting spoiled for both looking around Wikipedia and the like.

    Wow, how loving. Also, why do you feel the need to get "offensive?" Seems like a pretty small thing to get bent out of shape over.

    Selyse was mentioned a few times in S2, but we hadn't heard anything about Shireen.

    In fact, one theory being presented is that since there hasn't been any casting for Edric Storm, they might change the plot of Melisandre wanting to sacrifice him into her trying to get Stannis to sacrifice Shireen to the Red God instead.

    Of course, this will make Stannis not holding it against Davos for stopping the sacrifice a lot more reasonable.

    I like the extended trailer.

    The ads with the dragon shadows are an interesting marketing technique.

    I am excited to see the Reeds this year.

    Charles Dance confirms basically what we already knew:

    I love how he apparently talked through the nervous panel moderator/political officer's promptings to stop publicly discussing S4. Nobody tells Tywin Lannister to shut up! :lol:

    They should really humiliate him and have him die on, I dunno, the toilet or something.

    Perhaps we will finally find out if Tywin Lannister does, in fact, shit gold. :evil:

    It's a shame they managed to stop him. He might have finally told us where the whores go.

    Off topic, but if any of the Star Wars standalone movies should feature a younger Count Dooku, I really want Charles Dance to play him.

    One youtube comment did say something about it looked like they cloned Christopher Lee when they cast Tywin.

    That would be awesome.
    I've got another question. In the first Arya chapter, the kid they call The Bull is Robert's bastard who Ned saw in the Blacksmith's back at King's Landing, right?

    I thought so. I just started rewatching Season 1 and got to the scene in the Blacksmith's just a day or two after reading the Arya chapter so it was fresh in my mind.

    There's also a podcast interview with Martin by Sports Illustrated. It's mostly about, well, sports, but there are some ASOIAF comparisons of possible interest, which are also transcribed at the link.
