I'm intrigued now.

Must...

Get...

Books...

I need to just order these because B&N's all that is left and Borders was all I had in a reasonable drive.   ::)

The ninth episode of each of the seasons so far is the "Holy Sh!T!!" episode, and the finale is usually more subdued in comparison(Beheading, Blackwater, Red Wedding). My friends and I have decided to have an "Episode 9" party next season.

Did I hear correctly that Roose Bolton's bastard is also named Snow?  Are all bastards named Snow?

Those born in the North are.

Other areas have different bastard names:
Riverlands - Rivers
Vale - Stone
Iron Islands - Pyke
Westerlands - Hill
The Reach - Flowers
Crownlands - Waters (Gendry would be a Waters)
Stormlands - Storm
Dorne - Sand

....And let the speculations about season 4 begin!  Clearly, there are some hanging storylines that are notable:

-What's to become of the Wildling Raiders who are south of the Wall?

-Where will Bran's journey with the Reeds lead?  And who will they encounter?

-What did Melisandre see in the flames?  And what will Stannis do?

-What becomes of the apparently reformed Jaime Lannister  following his return to Kings Landing?

-And what of Cersei's arranged marriage to Loras Tyrell?


There are some new characters who should be working their way in to season 4.  Notably, the Red Viper and some of the Dornish.  Can anyone else think of new characters that might work their way into season 4?

I'm hoping we see Strong Belwas and more of Daenerys' inner circle.

I've been wondering about Strong Belwas.  He has a role to play further down the line.

But there's another character that I thought we would see more of who was introduced in season 2.  Namely, Ser Dontos Florent.  We got to see him in the first episode of season 2, but he's disappeared since then.  He also has a role to play.  Will he return for season 4?

The series has made a habit of introducing characters later than they appear in the book, and I expect Belwas will be one of those.  I think they understand that they can only get away with bringing in new people sparingly.  Hence the Reeds and Lord Beric showing up in season 3.

Yeah, the Reed children were definitely in the back of my mind along those lines.  But Beric did show up in a single scene of Season 1, albeit played by a different actor.  I can't say that I recall him showing up anywhere else prior to the events of season 3.

As for Strong Belwas?  I can understand why he wasn't introduced in season 3, since the premise for his introduction was the inclusion of his squire, Arstan Whitebeard.  The show didn't go with that, though, and straight-away we knew that the old, bearded mystery man in Astapor was Barristan Selmy.  Simply because the television medium makes the concept of a disguise tougher to pull off.

It looks like the Red Vyper has been cast.  I can't say that I've heard of Pedro Pascal before, but he's listed on IMDB as playing Oberyn Martell in Season 4.

Gotta love the In Memorium reel from the Game of Thrones panel at SDCC.

Did they leave out the Frey wife that Catelyn kills?  Maybe I missed her with all the quick flashes in the middle part.  But that was great, though.

They did.  I watched the quick bit, and she wasn't in there.  Which is fine, since that particular killing was a creation of the show, and not in A Storm Of Swords.
