    OMG!!! The one with Joff and Marg is the best!! I can’t wait to see what they made for them!! Natalie Dormer can surely pull a 20′ year old look!! And is Joff… handsome in this pic? (chillsss)

    Daenerys is stunningly beautiful! That blue suits her! and what is Talisa wearing? a tablecloth? :)) Olenna is surely into septa fashion! :))

    I wonder what they’re gonna do with stannis this season…
    his quarrell with the florents won’t be of any use, they weren’t introduced, and davos is already his hand (even tho he’s gonna be missing). We had no edric storm cast, so who’d melisandre try to sacrifice? And I really doubt we’ll see stannis crashing down on wildlings at episode 3×09, that’s more like to happen in Season 4…

    Everyone looks older here…..esp Sophie, Maisie , Ciarin , Diana. Yet very
    authentic and part of the environment they’re fixed in. Methinks Ygritte’s
    cloak has been aged or rough treated a bit, it was too pretty last season.
    Lena Headley strikes a pose as HBIC, really awesome reveal !

    I’m not sure if this has already been covered, but it came as a surprise to me:

    When these photos were posted to the show’s Facebook page, the caption for the picture of Robb and Talisa lists Talisa’s last name as “Westerling”.

    I guess that solves that?

    Fantastic Pics.

    With regards to the episodes they are from Hosters funeral is not till Episode 3 and Jaime still hasn’t lost his hand in Episode 3.

    Both things I would have guessed at happening earlier, I’m guessing the Jaime thing does happen in Ep3 just later than when the pic is from.

    JT,

    Photo’s of her from Season 2 also listed her name as Westerling. I think we concluded at the time that her name was changed late in the day and the Promo pics were not updated.

    Can’t really make the same excuse this time.

  83. ytdn
    Posted January 25, 2013 at 2:59 pm | Permalink

    Brandice,

    If you go to the GoT facebook page and look up the photo there ‘Talisa Westerling’ is in the title. I’m chalking it up to a titling error. They got the character Oona Chaplin was playing wrong before. Also in my opinion the whole idea of her being secretly a Westerling would 1) add nothing to the story 2) be over-convuluted and confusing to non-readers and 3) make Robb look like even more of an idiot than he already does. It’s an error most likely.

    It seems as if tyrion has his hands clasped in chains behind. Why i’m wondering, i don’t think they’re doing PW this season.

    Queen of Throns looks good, though a little younger and taller than what i expected. Love the rose belt she’s got on and incorporating the thorns onto the belt is even better.

    And Daeneyrs, if looks could kill she wouldn’t even need the dragons, those eyes.

    I wouldn’t jump to conclusions about which episode each are from, I remember last year a few were different. The pic of Brienne in Renly’s tent (last year) said episode 4 but in the end as we know, Renly’s death was the beginning of ep5.

    These pics are EPIC! Love them all, literally all of them. Wonder what’s going on in the Joff/Margaery pic?

    My oh my Sophie Turner is a stunner.

    arden,

    I wondered about that , thanks ……… but now the male above Arya ( below Ygritte)
    becomes a mystery. I thought that was Beric Dondarrion. Either way he doesn’t
    appear that death warmed over him / corpsey looking.

    Eventually there will be pictures of Beric alongside Thoros of Myr, so he’ll
    become easy to sort out of the crowd.

    I love every one of these. I always knew Hinds would be an A+ Mance.

    The only character I’m having difficulty placing is the one above Arya. That is, I’m assuming the guy in the eyepatch is Beric, so yeah. Only the pic above Arya.

    will own the role in her portrayal. Riggs is practically a giantess and stoic looking,
    but I’ve seen this face on her, she does it well…….reminds me of the shrewd Nun
    she played in ” The Painted Veil “.

    ytdn: Brandice, If you go to the GoT facebook page and look up the photo there ‘Talisa Westerling’ is in the title. I’m chalking it up to a titling error. They got the character Oona Chaplin was playing wrong before. Also in my opinion the whole idea of her being secretly a Westerling would 1) add nothing to the story 2) be over-convuluted and confusing to non-readers and 3) make Robb look like even more of an idiot than he already does. It’s an error most likely.

    ah, good point. I still pictured Thoros a little bit older, thinning hair, and pot belly from all the whoring and drinking with Robert. Then, after being with the Brotherhood, he’d have a saggy pot belly & look more malnourished & even older. There was an actor I had in mind, but can’t find his name. Still – I’m always open to the actors they choose. I’ll see how this gent does. Nina Gold has done such a good job.
    Beric does look pretty close to what I imagined. I agree with others, though. I expected him to look a little…. worse.

After the first two seasons, in which he hardly had any screentime and his lines kept being stolen by LF, I’m seriously worried they won’t pay him the attention he deserves in season 3 either. Which would be awful, because his travel with you-know-who is one of my favourite parts of the entire saga!

    Don’t know why people are so attached to Ser Dontos. He was almost totally excised from the second season and it would be more jarring than anything to have him play a significant role in season three. Given the limitations of a tv season, they have to streamline and Ser Dontos is not a character I miss.

    Ok, some remarks upon the episodes :

    Beric appearing in episode 7 surprises me ! I would have guessed Arya to be with the Hound at that point… seems we will have Arya and the Hound only for three episodes.

    Blackfish is episode 3… and since I guess that scene is the first one with the Tully, I guess that means we wont have them introduced until episode 3.

    Tenesmus,

    Don’t know why that would be, since Tywin dies after the PW in the books, so him being alive in the last episode could also mean the PW won’t happen yet. However, in interviews a few actors have let slip (it appears) that Tywin dies this season, so that may suggest the PW does happen. But, I believe it possible that D&D will do the PW out of order and it may not happen this season. Three weddings is a bit much – even just from a budgetary standpoint, let alone viewer fatigue. Also, if they have Jofferey die and then Tywin die in the same (final) episode as people are speculating, and that happens just after the RW, to be honest that’s too much. Not enough time to process and let the characters react.

    It would be safe to assume that you’ll get to see Cat in the next seasons as well, even if only briefly:)

    chris,

    In no way does Tywin standing in his solar suggest that the PW happens this season. He is not in the type of wardrobe that he would wear to a wedding. Also, nobody has let slip Tywin will die this season because he won’t. Dance found out how his character dies in the books and he was amused. He discussed it with Julian Glover(Pycelle) and Pycelle mentioned how great Tywin’s death is while musing about how he’d like his character to have a memorable death. Tywin’s death will come in the finale of s4.

    I love Thoros’s red-tinted chain mail. Great nod to redness but him also being a fighter.
    I think the Talisa labeling is just a mistake.
    And Tyrion’s hands are not in chains in the picture. They’re just behind his back.
    Last year’s photos had a similar gray tint to them. It’s the graphics filtering that was applied. The real images we’ve seen from filming have all looked brighter.

    To make a bit more of an indepth comment…

    I don’t know why they didn’t give Thoros’ outfit some red to draw attention to his status as a priest of R’hllor like Melisandre’s got, but he doesn’t look bad regardless. Small nitpick.

    Sophie’s becoming a real beauty, isn’t she? Though my immediate reaction to that shot was, “why the hell’s she wearing a cross?” lol. I guess it won’t appear so crosslike in the series though.

    Beric looks like death warmed over IMO, and I can’t wait to see him take on Sandor.

    Someone commented on how Brienne looked anxious with that sword there, but to me that doesn’t mean much. I don’t remember the book it happened in, but if this is the part where she has to kill those Stark bannerman, I could understand her hesitation and awkwardness vibe of that shot.

    My heart kind of breaks a little bit every time I see Cat for this season, this photo made me especially sad. I don’t quite know why. Ms Fairley owns the role, I love her.

    Good to see Meera and Jojen, they both look really suited to their parts. I wonder if they’ll allude to a budding romance between Meera and Bran that a lot of readers feel in the text.

    I’m just really pleased with all of it.

    Brienne is fighting with Jaime in the picture. In the in production’s videos, you can see the begining of the fight. That is why she is anxious.

    Just noticed the Beric pic is from ep7, does that mean Arya is still with them that late in the season?

    Sounds like they’re leaving most of the Hound/Arya travels until next year, which is a great idea! Obviously not all of it though. They could easily expand on that storyline and end exactly where the book ends (Next year) so that they don’t have to create a whole new set/location too early.

    Well we know that Arya and the Hound make it to the Twins in time for the RW and they have to fight their way oit of there (well, the Hound does), so not all of their travels can be left for season 4. I predict a season 3 finale where Arya leaves the Hound for dead, or she gets back Needle after stabbing repeatedly the Tickler, was it? I do agree that from the RW until Arya gets on the boat to Braavos is only a couple chapters and something will definitely be done with her storyline (either expand it, or incorporate FfC material)

    Hi all -

    It’s a mistake — Oona plays Talisa Maegyr Stark.

    Glad so many of you like the photos.

    Best,

    A word from the Keeper of the Mythos himself! Thanks for the info–and for all of your hard work on the series!

    I think the comments speak for themselves, but WE CAN’T BLOODY WAIT FOR SEASON THREE!!! So excited! It’s rather wonderful that some things just keep getting better and better :-)

    Maybe this has been asked and answered:

    But in the picture of Sansa: If that is from Episode 10, how can she be smiling considering what happened in Episode 9???

    My only thought: she’s told that she’ll be free from King’s Landing that evening (Joff/Marg wedding) and she hasn’t heard of the RW yet.

    And as for the picture of Tywin, he dies after the Mountain battles the Red Viper, which is so long after the PW.

    Not that the show has to follow the events of the book

    I’m hoping she’ll get taken some time during ep7, have a bit of banter in ep8 on the way to the Twins, get knocked out as a cliffhanger for ep9, revealed to be alive as the opening scene of 10 and then a short scene where the Hound decides to go to the Eyrie instead.

    Then season 4 could all be about their travels, they could add in modified versions of the scenes they missed out on and extend both the Arya/Hound and Sansa/Hound relationships by having more talking scenes. The inn scene could happen late in season 4 and the Hound’s “death” and Arya’s boarding of the ship in ep10.

    Haha, people are drawing a lot of conclusions from a few promotional pictures. It seems pretty reasonable that they’d want Sansa’s reaction to the RW to happen on camera in ep 10,so she could be smiling seconds before finding out. Literally the end of the first chapter that Arya is with Sandor is when he tells her they are going to the Twins so it would stand to reason she is with the Brotherhood late into the season (although having Thoros in ep. 1 appears to be a deviation- I’m guessing him and Beric are with the Lem and Anguy’s of the world). What Tywin being in ep. 10 in front of a table has to do with the PW, I have no idea, but I guess it is a post about season 3 on this site, so the comment sections would feel empty without a “(post above on literally any topic) tells me the PW is definitely happening!!” comment. It looks to me like Joff is merely showing Marg how to use the crossbow. Shooting someone isn’t something she seems likely to do.

    Sansa looks so pretty!!! She is wearing the same gown as in the behind the scenes video, so I’m speculating that scene in her rooms will be when Loras comes to take her away and then they go outdoors to the breakfast thingy and that’s the scene we are seeing!! XD

    I hope they do things like this. There are definitely going to be some creative re-ordering of non-critical events in order to keep as much of the cast fresh in the minds of the audience as possible, when Martin hasn’t always succeeded at that (it’s not as critical in book form though).

    Glad to see the Queen of Thorns but Oh! how I miss Emma Peel.
    Seeing Tywin wearing the pin of the King’s Hand just reminds me of how much better the chain version of the Hand insignia seemed in the books. I wonder why they changed that. Especially since it will become…. ummm… important later.
    So no Dontos this season, eh? And the mysteriously ever-present Ros may take his place?? Yikes.
    Actually, here’s a theory. Perhaps Dontos will go away and simply not be replaced at all, by anyone, and there will be no middleman between Sansa and… her mystery benefactor in the game of thrones. Think of what Dontos actually does. He could easily be replaced with a series of notes and a constantly changing cast of nameless escorts, boat pilots, coachmen, etc.
    And I did NOT imagine Thoros looking like some grizzled nephew of the Greatjohn. Ah well. Glad he survived at all. I’m still wondering how we can possibly meet Arstan Whitebeard without Strong Belwas.

    All her and the Hound do after the RW wedding is wander around for a handful of chapters, and as much as it is to read, it doesn’t make for very compelling television. I’d say they’ll prolly make the crossroads showdown/hound “death” the finale content, with her boarding the boat one of the final scenes of ep 10. You can’t let the coin play for more than a single season, because the memory of most viewers isn’t that long.

    Also her adventures in Braavos is a shitload of content, with all sorts of potential for expanded characters/locations/plotlines, so the sooner they get started on that the better. I don’t think any of the timelines conflict either.

    Hunter,

    She stabs Polliver to get Needle back and also leaves the Hound to die after they flee the Twins. I could see your way happening especially given how they’ve minimalized Sandor, but if they want it there’s enough in there to keep her in Westeros til mid season 4.

    I can understand some hatred towards despicable characters like Joffrey, the mountain, Ramsay… but for a character like Ross who haven’t done anything to be hated for… whose only crime is not being in the source material, is too much. Some of us still love you Ross (and Talisa as well). By the way, I totally disagree that Ross is going to play the part of Dontos. I don’t even think that anyone has to take his role at all. I think her role will be that of Jeyne Poole although most people seem to think otherwise because of her age, but I still do.

    On the other hand…. Hurrah! Great pics to keep the hype going. Now a for the trailer!!!

    I don’t know why they didn’t give Thoros’ outfit some red to draw attention to his status as a priest of R’hllor like Melisandre’s got, but he doesn’t look bad regardless. Small nitpick.

    The throros picture looks quite desaturated, almost to the point of being black & white. (For some reason the GOT publicity team likes to do that to many of their publicity shots) The other glimpse we have gotten of throros in a preview video indicated that he will look much more red in the show.

    Actually, Ros taking the part of Dontos seems totally logic… moreover, we have seen scenes with Sansa and Ros so it makes sense.

    And since she might (Ros) become a spy for Varys, she’ll be able to tell him about Littlefinger’s plan… which would mean Varys might become aware of the whereabouts of Sansa later on.

    I personally hope that, instead of Arya getting knocked out at the RW, Sandor could just drag her off while she screams and cries. It would be a fantastic parallel to Ned’s death. Yoren made sure she didn’t see her father get beheaded, and Sandor will realize what’s going on in the Twins, and make sure she doesn’t see her brother and mother slaughtered.

    And Tywin… wow, that look does slay.
    Can’t wait.

    Saw these on their facebook page, they look awesome. Though I’m a bit worried about what the hell Margeary is doing with Joffrey there, not only is she my least favorite actress on the show but if they make her get along with Joffrey then why the hell would the Tyrells conspire with Little Finger to kill him??

    Other than that these look great though I don’t like how the blackfish looks like he’s deserted the wall in that outfit :/

    Lexyvil,

    Same here. Doesn’t look anything like he was described, yet I absolutely love the casting of Paul Kaye. I think I’ll enjoy Thoros more in the show than I did in the books.

    But his outfit is not black. It’s mostly dark brown with some dark green. Compare it to Jon Snow’s.

    He Who Slithers:
    I am beginning to wonder if Cersei is pulling an FDR… the only shots I have seen of her she is sitting behind that desk. All kidding aside, I wonder if they have reduced her role this season? Ahem, Mr. Cogman, care to tease?

    and, in regards to the effort to photoshop the Stannis and the Mel pic together (good job, btw), it looks like several of the images up top are from the same scene (ie, Arya and Thoros, both Reed pics and Bran, QoT and Tyrion, Cat and Edmure)

    trailer me!

    Lena Headey is/was apparently pregnant, so I don’t think we’re going to see her standing much, unless she got pregnant after filming or didn’t start showing yet.

    Any news about the music/soundtrack? Are we going to get a new composer? I like what Ramin Djawadi has done so far, still doesn’t anyone think that it is time for something new?

    I still believe that Harry Gregson-Williams would be an awesome composer to join GoT in case Djawadi leaves…listen to the sample below, it is a short piece from “X-Men Evolution: Wolverine” entitled “Kayla”, not necessarily an appropiate example for GoT but I think a great musical piece nonetheless!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9AFXlHBOYI&list=FLjOkGJ6ZYn21rJS69ofxWnw

    He also composed the soundtrack for “Kingdom Of Heaven”, below is the track called “Coronation” (it makes more sense if you watch the scene in the movie)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEZwmuzukHQ

    I know there is a small chance of Djawadi leaving, which I don’t mind in the least, but just in case if it ever happened, I think Harry Gregson-Williams would be amazing for GoT!

    It wasn’t Margaery who conspired to kill Joffrey; it was the Queen of Thorns, after hearing from Sansa all the horrible things that Joffrey put her through. That will in all likelihood still happen on the show.

    What I’m finding more interesting than all the shit that’s been endlessly repeated in the comments so far is that Thoros has one sword stored in his belt and another one on his back. A bidenhänder as a secondary weapon? Can’t wait to find out. ;)

    loco73,

    I like Gregson-Williams but Djwadi delivered a fantastic score last season and with all the themes he created, that leitmotif needs to carry on throughout the show. Now it’s possible a different composer might incorporate the proper motifs used in 1 and 2 but that rarely happens.

    I understand that you are not the biggest fan of him and imagine what other composers can do, but I think continuity in soundtrack is very important and after season 2 he can only be better and better. The Stannis/Melisandre theme, the Night’s Watch, the Dany theme, the Stark theme, the Lannister/Rains of Castamere theme and one that was given faint appearance in season 3, the Tyrell theme. I want to hear his Frey theme, his Beric theme, his Astapor theme, the Daario motif, perhaps a Bolton theme? Why stop him now?

    Lena Headey is not pregnant. The first MGOT vlog shows her with Margaery and she is not expecting, also there is a scene of her running away in the HBO 2013 preview. Oh and she was not pregnant at the Emmys in September. Nor when she was filming Dredd earlier this year. So where she found 9 months to do so if that’s the case amazes me.

    A net is an excellent weapon if used proficiently. It can disable your opponent just long enough to yield an opening (I’ve got crackpot theory that Howland Reed used such a combo at the Tower of Joy). As for hunting, while it is possible to hunt fish and frog with a bow, a net works better.

    I’m assuming Arya will spend just about the whole season w/ the BWB and the only ‘Arya & The Hound’ happening in season 3 will consist simply of him taking her and them immediately being at the Twins for the RW and thats it. Their won’t be a travelog of him taking him to her mother.

    Then the next season (season 4) will consist of The Hound attempting to take her to her aunt in The Eyrie which will be expanded to include what they can from the books of their pre-RW interactions and then season 4 end with her leaving him and getting on a ship to Braavos.
