  • Speaking of Varys could someone please tell me why they deleted his scene with Littlefinger from episode 10 in season 2 ? It was a great interaction between the two characters and explained why Vary’s approaches Ros in the episode.

  • Thoros has a lot of character in his face.

    I’m glad they deleted that extra Littlefinger-Varys scene, as Littlefinger’s insults were not very witty and Varys had no rejoinders.

  • Isn’t littlefinger supposed to be the Queen of Thornes “friend”??? Like the duo with Varys though! And what about the shot with Margery and Joffrey?? Hope he starts to scare her in this season!!!

  • 1st pic: “I’ve never been quite sure what the point of a eunuch is, if truth be told. It seems to me they’re only men with the useful bits cut off.”

  • Olenna and Varys!!!

    This is another instance where I say, “Screw the books – I want more of this! And throw in some Tywin/Olenna scenes while you’re at it.”

  • Yea the only deleted scene that should have possibly been kept was the Loras/Marg one, it was well acted and gave a little insight to the Tyrells who are obviously going to play a more prominent role.

  • And if RW is this season, which it is in ep9, doing PW in ep10 is beyond silly. Until I see the receipts in the chalice, I will trust they are holding it till next season.

  • Stannis clenching his teeth & has a close beard. (5 o’clock shadow)

    Looks like Stephen Dillane read the books

  • All of these pictures are from the first 2-3 episodes, it seems to me. Also, no Theon, no Night’s Watch and very little Dany, beginning of the season might be focused more on King’s Landing.

  • Glad to see more of Margaery and the Queen of Thorns but when are we getting some pics of Loras??

  • No pictures of Littlefinger… I wonder if he still has his magic carpet? I heard this season he will be meeing with Balon Greyjoy, the Martells, Magister Illyrio, Roose Bolton, and Walder Frey

  • Theon’s Missing Junk:
    Margaery and Joffrey! PW confirmed yes!!! Suck it haters

    Obvious troll is obvious.

    I’m loving the Varys and Lady Olenna one. And I’m sincerely hoping that the Queen of Thorns lets all her snarky comments fly.

    I especially cannot wait for this one (perhaps in S5?)
    “A scent, you say?”
    “More like a stink.”

  • A couple of points…

    1) I’ve read all the books, but can someone please remind me what is being referred to as PW?

    2) In pictures 13 and 14, how much do Tywin and Joffrey actually look like Grandfather and Grandson? Excellent casting. Especially given that most everybody I know would like a private moment with Joff’s face and a cricket bat.

    Practically soiling myself in excitement over the whole thing.

  • Refresh my mind please. Did Arya, Gendry and Hot Pie pick up swords before they leave Harrenhall? I don’t think so.
    I hope that will be explained in the season, I hate continuity errors. ;-)

  • Darquemode,

    I’m officially in the Ros fan club. The poor actress does a great job with her difficult task of being The Exposition Hooker. Cut her some slack already!

  • man I’m an idiot… I let my guard down with Spoilers and started researching Thoros and then the Brotherhood Without Banners just to get their backstory and walked smack into a huge spoiler that’s coming down the pike. Well, that’s enough internet for me today….

  • YAY for Stannis grinding his teeth!

    Somebody give Thoros a banjo. Oh hey, there’s Anguy!

    Good to see Bronn will be sticking around for a bit.

  • matt,

    Spoilers! God damn it hide your spoilers!

    I’ve read the books but I’ve seen a few poor non readers be HORRIBLY spoiled today on a number of websites. I feel bad for them.

  • KG,

    I may not be in the fan club exactly…. but I agree completely tha she did more with her character than anyone could have expected given the circumnstances.

    I’m intrigued to see how they use her this season… Will it be similar to Ser Dontos tempting Sansa to escape, or will she play fake Arya as some of suggested? Perhaps even just a pawn of Varys’ as last season hinted at.

    Not more interested than seeing… an expanded Queen of Thorns role, Jaime’s arc and the Wildlings! In fact I may even be interested in seeing Dany’s arc too! I mean… if they cannot make her arc great this year they never will.

  • Can’t tell if it’s lighting, make-up, camera angles, or some other technicality I’m unaware of, but every single face in those photos looks beautiful to me. Mayhaps I have my fan-girl lenses on.

  • Turri,

    There are many photos in that batch not from the first 2 or 3 episodes. Go through the whole Sky gallery. The one of Olenna for instance is from 2.8.

  • Richard,

    Oh Richard, so sorry this happened to you! Only 12 more days. Try to be patient for the show to start and stick to safe websites. Now you know why there is so much excitement from the book readers. Relax and enjoy the show as it unfolds. I can’t tell you to forget what you read because of course, you won’t, but you can still enjoy the reveal like the rest of us!

  • Anguy appears to be wearing Stark armour! Could this mean he will be fulfilling Harwin’s role from the book?

  • I’m not getting much done at work today because I can’t tear myself away from this site. (My GOT-loving co-workers are having the same problem.)

    Love the photos and interviews. Richard Madden is a perfect man. Sophie is just stunning. Love Nikolaj’s little smirk.

    Say what? “Play fake Arya?” People have seriously suggested this?

    “Well we couldn’t find the real, small girl Arya Stark, so let’s just use this thirty one year old whore we found. Nobody will notice, probably.”

    That would be so unbelievably, mind numbingly stupid it’s hard to believe the thought even ever crossed anyone’s mind. Like last season when people were predicting Bronn would attack Tyrion at the Blackwater “because he doesn’t really do much after that anyway.”

  • Darquemode,

    Looks like this image is possibly from the same most recent trailer scene with Margaery turning around abruptly to deal with some peasant. Maybe it is less confrontational the the edited clip appeared.

    Looks to be her giving out food to the smallfolk as mentioned in the books Ithink…..

  • Wishing death on female characters who have done nothing wrong. It’s like no time has passed at all between seasons.

    Great pics, Darquemode!

  • Shane snow:
    Looks like margaery is bout to undress like she did for renly

    Or light him on fire with laser beams from her eyes. Seriously–I don’t usually use this expression, but as the people on Project Runway say, “she looks fierce!”

  • Shane snow: Looks like margaery is bout to undress like she did for renly

    This is why I keep coming here — comments like this. May the Seven bless you, Shane snow! As if I wasn’t stoked already.

    12 days.

  • Isabelle: Or light him on fire with laser beams from her eyes. Seriously–I don’t usually use this expression, but as the people on Project Runway say, “she looks fierce!”

    Keep feeding me straight lines!

    Natalie Dormer is so hot … she lights guys on fire with laser beams from her eyes? Meh. Okay, not my best, but you asked for it.

  • Reverse Nielsen:

    Yes perhaps and if you look at this pic

  • cane-cutter,

    I was thinking it may be that scene also, but I had not noticed Anguy in Stark armor or considered the Anguy will take Harwin’s role. Interesting, and makes sense to merge a couple very minor roles.

  • Mike Chair: Natalie Dormer is so hot … she lights guys on fire with laser beams from her eyes? Meh. Okay, not my best, but you asked for it.

    It was a bit dull, wasn’t it. Perhaps “she makes them burn alive” would be better. Or “makes their breath catch at the wondrous sight of her” :D

  • Jim,

    I agree completely and have never been a fan of that theory. I have read it at least a handful of time though….

  • Ours is the Fury,

    How do you know the number of the episode they’re from?

    I suspect those Sansa stills are from her dinner with the QoT. She looks surprised, and there are flowers on the background.

  • Jaqen is Q:
    Thoros looks nuts. I hope they don’t make him into comic relief.

    LMAO, I thought the same……a bit like a jester of sorts…… a traveling comedic
    player ?

  • I can’t believe they’ve written a scene with Varys and Olenna Tyrell. Their dialogue will be dripping with barbs and intrigue. Pairing those two is brilliant!

  • Darquemode:

    Holy shit, that made me clap my hands with glee. Ros could definitely become fake Arya down the line! In future seasons, she’ll be reunited with Theon once he’s become Reek and she becomes betrothed to Ramsay. They’ve already set up their relationship in Season 1, and will be a blast to play with down that road! The intrigue, the drama, the potential! I’m down with that!

  • Ah Thoros. I was in for the ride the moment he was cast. Let’s hope he gets some good serious moments too. Still can’t believe Strutter is Thoros.

  • stannis is gnashing his teeth. hahahaha just remembered he does that a lot in the books.

    really love natalie dormer. hope she has good material this season. her scenes will be one of the new ones and i really hope it will be good.

  • caravaggio,

    Yeah, never mind the twenty year age gap. Never mind that for that ploy to work they’d have to be trying to pass off the illusion that the youngest Stark girl, a young girl often mistaken for a boy, has, within the course of…what, weeks?…become a buxom whore half a decade older than her oldest brother.

    Again, MONUMENTALLY stupid idea. SO stupid that if by some horrible, unprecedented, insanely idiotic twist of fate it were to HAPPEN, it would actually be insulting to the viewers.

    I mean, surely you can’t be serious.

  • cane-cutter: Yes perhaps and if you look at this pic

    It looks like this is when Arya recognizes Harwin/Anguy

    I wish, but I just read the HBO Viewers Guide, and Anguy is mentioned as being from the south. I think that they’ll prolly do away with that part of her story ie she won’t reveal herself to anyone while crying in one of the most heart breaking scenes in her story and they wont recognize her. I guess beric could recognize her, but it won’t have the same impact. She won’t be trusting someone only to be betrayed. It’s one of my favorite scenes, but I fear they are going to cut it bc it’s not strictly necessary, so I’m prepping myself so I won’t be upset bc I know it might not play as well since she’s much older and we haven’t seen her on the run and as a frightened little weasel etc., so yea
