    Heh. Richard Madden said he couldn't talk about the plot, otherwise HBO would kill him.

    Oh he brings the funny.

    Two new short scenes (or clips from scenes) from the first season 3 episode have been made public on youtube:

    Clip 1 - Dany and her dragons (showing the larger dragons this year)

    A close-op of Drogon... They certainly keep improving the effects: (click for higher resolution)

    Another TV spot - the most epic yet, probably. Lots of dragons...

    Another review that speaks to how there are many stories/characters, but if you go all in you will be rewarded (minor spoilers):

    So, no music for Mance, or did I miss it? Will Mance's future mission be altered as well?

    No Strong Belwas, but that was really just to keep Barristan hidden. I was wondering if they would just come out with him. Makes you wonder if and how he gets a trip through the sewers or if someone else just goes alone.

    Is anybody else going to skinchange? Any talking crows? Talking crows pays off later with the 3 -eyed-crow and weirwood. Children of the forest? Suppose no crannogmen on the horizon, with Bran having the green-dreams.

    I didn't like Jon's purported reason for switching sides. Thought the book's version was better. Probably could do it later in a talk with Mance.

    Nice giants. Any mammoths coming?

    Liked Tywin's speech to Tirion, good setup to the bathroom scene.

    ^^^ We should see some more skin changing when
    Arya gets to Braavos and links up with the House of Black & White.

    Talking crows should start making appearances soon, but I don't think we'll be seeing any Children of the Forrest at all this season. IIRC,
    Bran didn't actually run into them until Cold Hands brought him to their underground lair in ADwD.

    If no crannogmen then nobody to explain the Children of the Forest, except Osha? Maybe it'd work, but then you could probably cut them entirely. Just work with green dreams and Osha's explanation
    to get them to cold hands and the cave
    . Tough to say though, considering the unwritten portions.

    ^^^ Yep, I think they're going to try to be very careful how much of that future information from the later books they're going to put into the series for fear that it might coincide too closely with Winds of Winter. They're already moving Theon's/Reek's story up much sooner than originally established in the books. I suspect they have been working very closely with Martin to make sure their efforts don't collide with his. Probably one of the myriad reasons why it's taking so long for him to get the next book out the door.
