Preview the Game of Thrones Season 4 Soundtrack
By Ours is the Fury on in Merchandise.

The soundtrack from Game of Thrones, written by Ramin Djawadi, is a highlight every season, with new music provided each year to go along with the instant-classic main theme. The season 4 soundtrack won’t be out on CD until July 1st, and available via digital download until June 10th, but luckily the preview has been released, with all twenty-two tracks loaded up on one video for easy listening.

The latest soundtrack includes the Sigur Rós rendition of “The Rains of Castamere,” featured at the Purple Wedding and previously available only as a single. Of course we’ve already encountered several of the tracks previewed, such as the threatening attack theme of the Thenns (Track #6),  “I’m Sorry for Today,” the yearning music that scored Missandei and Grey Worm’s conversation in the throne room in the most recent episode (Track #5), and others.

We’re also getting an intriguing sneak peek at themes from future episodes, like “The Children,” a piece of music that shares the title of the season finale. (Track #22)

The complete tracklisting, with the time notations on the video provided by WaterTower Music, is as follows:

1. Main Titles – 00:00-0:30
2. The Rains Of Castamere, performed by Sigur Rós – 00:30-1:00
3. Breaker Of Chains – 1:00-1:30
4. Watchers On The Wall – 1:30-2:00
5. I’m Sorry For Today – 2:00-2:30
6. Thenns – 2:30-3:00
7. Meereen – 3:00-3:30
8. First Of His Name – 3:30-4:00
9. The Biggest Fire The North Has Ever Seen – 4:00-4:30
10. Three Eyed Raven – 4:30-5:00
11. Two Swords – 5:00-5:30
12. Oathkeeper – 5:30-6:00
13. You Are No Son Of Mine – 6:00-6:30
14. The North Remembers – 6:30-7:00
15. Let’s Kill Some Crows – 7:00-7:30
16. Craster’s Keep – 7:30-8:00
17. The Real North – 8:00-8:30
18. Forgive Me – 8:30-9:00
19. He Is Lost – 9:00-9:30
20. I Only See What Matters – 9:30-10:00
21. Take Charge Of Your Life 10:00-10:30
22. The Children – 10:30-11:00

Ours is the Fury: Any personal favorites on the soundtrack, or thoughts on the pieces we haven’t seen yet on the show? It’s always interesting to predict the significance of the unidentified ones. Last year, none of us here at WiC in our discussion guessed that “Heir to Winterfell” would refer to Rickon.

    Personnaly spec about “I only see what matters”.

    It refers to the opening of episode 10.
    Ygritte’s pyre. Melisandre shows up, gazes at the flames and tell Jon Snow she has seen him in her fires and she only sees what matters. The show has to build-up the dynamics between Mel and Jon for next season and start hinting at the prophecies and visions.

    And I’d love if Val were to be cast, she is needed for the dynamics at the Wall, imo. Mel is Fire, Val is Ice, Jon is hanging between the two with undeniable sexual tension. I love this symbolism.

    Other than that : cant wait to listen to the full and in-episode version of “The Watchers on the Wall”, the music for the episode sounds epic !

    Looks like “Forgive Me” is the real sad tune of this album. And “Three Eyed Raven” sounds less epic and mystical than I imagined, but it’ll do.

    All in all, seems like a more varied and tastier delivery from Dwajadi than last year’s Season 3 soundtrack. So good job for him.

    It would be cool if Jon the emo would kill Ygritte instead having a kid do his dirty work.

    Sounds great. My one concern is that “The Children” sounds pretty episode endingy and if thats the case then there’d probably be no Lady Stoneheart. Hope I’m wrong.

    Thoughts on what scenes pertains to what:

    Oathkeeper: Lady Stoneheart because it’s dark and ominous

    The North Remembers: Stannis offering Jon to be Lord of Winterfell

    The Biggest fire the north has ever seen: start of the battle at the wall which officially starts at the 15min mark of the episode according to invterviews

    The Real North: no idea. Possibly Jon in Mance’s tent

    Forgive me: Either Ygritte’s death or Tyrion killing Shae

    Three eyed raven: Lord BloodRaven!

    The children: Children of the forest. Little evil creatures in league with the night’s king posing as innocent beings in order to reclaim westeros from mankind

    I only see what matters: Mel telling Jon that she’s seen him in the flames. Beginning of Jon/Mel sexual tension relationship

    The sample for the children makes it seem like the last scene kinda music they generally use to close the season …like last years bit with dany … Which makes me believe the last scene won’t be stone heart because there is no way stone heart can end with that music …. Now I’m scared …. I think hey have cut stone heart

    Season 2 had a Dany scene that played a finale-like track (mother of dragons) but it turned out not to be the end of the episode. You can’t really make assumptions based on the music alone.

    It’s called Oathkeeper. Listen to the preview- that tune has not appeared yet, definitely not in relation to that storyline. The track seems appropriately disturbing.

    Many of you guessing are way off its funny and enjoyable. Some of these are very obvious if you recognize earlier soundtracks from past seasons.

    LS is the only wildcard which I can be a re-use Stark theme. The north remembers could be the one tho

    ‘Oathkeeper’ is the LS tune. It has not been used and it is super creepy/ominous. It in no way relates to Jaime and Brienne’s scene together, yet refers to Brienne, who, like many had guessed, will meet LS in the finale.

    ‘The Real North’ is the Jon/Ygritte music.

    ‘You Are No Son Of Mine’ is the music that will accompany Tyrion/Tywin in the finale.

  21. Tori Targaryen
    Posted June 7, 2014 at 10:32 am | Permalink

    I believe Oathkeeper could be LS. It’s not a piece we’ve heard in the show yet, and it would be fitting.

    The Real North has Jon and Ygritte’s love theme playing, so I think we know what this is :(

    Valdred Dethstorm,

    Last year’s soundtrack ended with ‘For The Realm’, which was not used in the show. With as many of the tracks that are listed at the beginning and middle that haven’t been used yet, I think they chose to mix it up, so people wouldn’t automatically guess the ending.

    Except that “For the Realm” was a different version of the main theme, so yeah, they wouldn’t be using it in the show. S3 ended with “Mhysa”, which was the final track, without counting that addition (For the realm).
    I’m just saying you all shouldn’t get overhyped or jump to wild conclusions, only to get disappointed after and turn this into a wall of lamenting, like last year, when everyone also predicted and were so sure of LS at the ending.

    I think you guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment regarding Oathkeeper. Remember, we know Brienne gets into a fight and bites a guy’s ear off. The music could very easily be the set up of that fight, likely an ambush.

    I think she will get captured / bite someones ear off, then realize in horror that the person leading them is ladystoneheart. All in the same scene.

    I think we’ll get LS, but not this season. Lena only recently posted that spoiler on instagram… about in the timeline with her getting scripts for next season. They’re supposed to begin filming soon. When you think about the sheer amount of stuff that has to happen in the finale (even with extended time), you just realize it isn’t possible

    Some Stannis / Jon / etc. wall exposition and post fight wrap-up


    Tyrion escape from cell, talk with Jaime, Varys, killing his dad and Shae (btw — looks like theyre not going to explain Shae ending up w/ Tywin in show either. It just will be)


    Danerys stuff, whatever it ends up being.


    Qyburn and the Mountain have a confirmed scene


    Brienne and Pod will have something — Brienne has yet to bite off anybody’s ear.


    Arya and the Hound — somehow, their situation at the Bloody Gate has to be resolved, Hound has to die (or almost or whatever), and Arya has to have a goodbye, leave him and find a Braavosi boat (Braavosi captain confirmed role)


    And then Bran, the children of the forest (Leaf confirmed) and the Three-Eyed Raven. And apparently the most expensive CGI shot ever, which is going to involve white walkers and everything going nuts, or something. Have to imagine this huuuge introduction will take a lot of time


    And that’s not even to mention if there’s a Cersei scene (of course that could and probably will be the Qyburn Mountain scene) or some exposition about Oberyn’s death and Dorne. Or a Greyjoy scene fit in somewhere.


    But Gods its gonna be a great episode.

    I don’t think that LS is cut if we don’t get her in the finale. She easily could be introduced next season. Lena’s LS spoiler was only recent — and I’m pretty sure they only recently got the season 5 scripts. With all of the stuff mashed into episode 10, I’m doubtful LS will be in it.

    It would be nice if the show made some attempt to acknowledge that more than two songs exist. It’s a running joke at this point.

    But take that burping prostitute. Just because a song from the books hasn’t had occasion to make it onto the show doesn’t mean she can’t burp it anyway, and have the dude guess that one.

    But that’s just shitty writing. Djawadi’s actual compositions rarely disappoint. And I will buy this.

    Most of these refer to things that we’ve already seen, or that will likely show up in 4×09 (“Watchers on the Wall,” “Let’s Kill Some Crows,” e.g.). What’s left?

    I’m Sorry For Today: Grey Worm and Missandei (4×08)
    Oathkeeper: Lady Stoneheart/Brienne confrontation, I’m guessing (4×10)
    You Are No Son of Mine: Tyrion kills Tywin, I’m guessing (4×10)
    The North Remembers: Sansa and Tyrion (4×01), also used for Sansa’s snow castle scene in 4×07
    The Real North: Jon/Ygritte theme
    Forgive Me: Dany banishes Jorah (4×08)
    He Is Lost: Dunno, but that line of dialogue hasn’t shown up yet, so 4×09 or 4×10.
    I Only See What Matters: Also must show up in 4×09 or 4×10.
    Take Charge of Your Life: Petyr’s advice to Robin, Sansa descending the staircase (4×08)
    The Children: very upbeat track, so unlikely to be Dany chaining her dragons. My money’s on the Children of the Forest.

    All of these sound great – excellent work from Ramin Djawdi as usual. I can’t wait to get the full album when it’s released.

    Some thoughts on the individual tracks:

    Main Titles: The main title theme music. As lovely as ever!

    The Rains Of Castamere, by Sigur Rós: From the end of “The Lion and the Rose”. It’s quite nice, although I still wish that Sigur Rós had gotten a crack at “The Last of the Giants”.

    Breaker Of Chains: Dany’s music from the end of the titular episode.

    Watchers On The Wall: Rousing battle music from this Sunday’s upcoming episode. I can’t wait to hear this in context.

    I’m Sorry For Today: From Missandei and Grey Worm’s scene in “The Mountain and the Viper”. A lovely tune, although quite appropriately sad.

    Thenns: Used multiple times for our favorite cannibals from the North. I really like this one – it’s perfect for that ominous crew.

    Mereen (sic?): Obviously this relates to Dany’s storyline, but I can’t place this one exactly. It’s darker than I thought it would be.

    First Of His Name: From Tommen’s coronation. It could be repurposed for Stannis, but I doubt it.

    The Biggest Fire The North Has Ever Seen: This will signal the start of the attack on the Wall in the next episode. It sounds suitably epic.

    Three Eyed Raven: I don’t think that we’ve heard this one yet. It has an ethereal tone that I really like. Most likely we’ll hear this when Bran meets Bloodraven in the finale.

    Two Swords: From the cold open that started the season, with elements of the Stark theme giving way to The Rains of Castamere. One of my favorites.

    Oathkeeper: I initially thought that this was going to be the music from when Jaime gives Brienne the sword and the two of them say goodbye, but it’s far too dark and ominous for that. Folks … I think we have our Lady Stoneheart music! And no, I’m not concerned about its placement in the middle of the soundtrack rather than at the end. That happens sometimes.

    You Are No Son Of Mine: I LOVE this one. Obviously this is what will play when Tyrion kills Tywin, and it appropriately captures the tragedy and catharsis of the moment. The end of one painful chapter, and the beginning of another for our beleaguered Imp.

    The North Remembers: This played during Sansa and Tyrion’s scene in “Two Swords” when they’re talking about Robb and Catelyn. It could also be the track from the scene where Sansa builds the snow castle, but I can’t be sure. I recognize elements of both the Winterfell theme and numerous other Stark-related tracks that we’ve heard over the years.

    Let’s Kill Some Crows: Another track from next week’s battle. This is another favorite of mine. I’m about ready to go kill some crows myself!

    Craster’s Keep: From the end of “First of His Name”, when Jon and the others burn Craster’s Keep to the ground.

    The Real North: This sounds very similar to “You Know Nothing”, the Jon and Ygritte love theme that we heard last year. Could this be the music for Ygritte’s death?

    Forgive Me: We heard this last week – this is Daenerys banishing Jorah. You can hear the Eastern elements that have been a staple of Dany’s themes for years.

    He Is Lost: I like this one, but I don’t quite recognize it. This might the music from the duel between the Mountain and the Viper, but I’m not sure – I’ll need to watch that scene again. Otherwise, my best guess is that it’s another track from the Battle at the Wall, possibly from when the giant charges the gate in the tunnel.

    I Only See What Matters: I agree with what others have suggested: this is probably from the finale when Melisandre approaches Jon as he’s preparing Ygritte’s funeral pyre.

    Take Charge Of Your Life: From Littlefinger’s pep talk to Robin, and Sansa’s transformation into Darth Sansa, a true player in the game of thrones.

    The Children: Beautiful. I’ll be curious to see where this one fits in the finale. It does have a bit of a rousing quality to it, which makes me wonder if it could be end title music, but that wouldn’t really fit with Lady Stoneheart. Otherwise, the most obvious use for this music would be for the introduction of the Children of the Forest, possibly when they save Bran and the others from the wights and White Walkers.

Now I’m scared …. I think hey have cut stone heart

    The last track on last year’s was “For the Realm”, a bonus track. I think “Taking Charge of You Life” will be used for Stoneheart (it sounds really creepy, right?), and “The Children” will be the end credits music.

    I had already heard rumors that Lady Stoneheart would be cut from this season, and the fact this soundtrack doesn’t hint at her making an appearance at all is sort of another nail on the coffin.

    Besides, episode 10 will most likely end with another Dany scene. You know those are mandatory. Probably her finally locking up the dragons. Hence “the children” not only applying to the CotF.

    No it’s definitely a Lannister moment, I can hear the theme. But I know what you mean. There just haven’t been many emotional pieces of music that contain their theme in this way, whereas the Starks have an abundance of tracks like that lol

    Take Charge of Your Life, however, I did hear some Stark notes there, very subtle but it is there. And it’s not a piece we’ve heard yet. My first instinct was it related to Sansa, but on reflection, it could be an Arya moment.

    Renly’s Peach,

    Does any potential Dany scene fit this description of the final scene, described by Sophie Turner?

    “Oh yes! I can tell you that the end of the season, I mean, we have really great ends to every season. This season, there’s been peaks the whole way through, but the one at the end is spectacular. And it’s one of those, like the last three seasons you get chills at the end, but this one is actually really good because it takes the storyline to a whole new level of a particular storyline. And you’re like “WOW.” Then you can’t wait for the next season.”

    “It’s a hopeful turn. It’s dramatic but it’s like, for once Game of Thrones isn’t so depressing. (laughs)”

    I don’t see Dany chaining her dragons fitting that description.

    he North Remembers’ was used in ‘Dark Wings, Dark Words’ last season(as well as when Sansa & Tyrion are talking about the Red Wedding in ‘Two Swords’) when Catelyn was talking about Jon. Such an awesome piece. So glad we’re finally getting the full release. ‘Two Swords’ was one I thought would get omitted, but I’m glad that’s there as well. I’m going to abuse the replay button with those & the music from ‘The Watchers on the Wall’ which all sounds amazing.

    ‘I’m Sorry For Today’ is when Grey Worm & Missendei are talking in #8

    ‘Forgive Me’ sounds like Jorah getting banished


    ‘The Real North’ sounds like Ygritte’s death (Instead of Jon saying “you’ll see a hundred castles” I think he’s going to say “The real north” i.e. his home)

    I have no idea where ‘He is Lost’, & ‘I Only See What Matters’, could be from

    The omission of Oberyn’s theme is just another reason why I hope we get a full soundtrack release or ‘Suite’ releases when the series itself is over.

    I don’t think this season will end with Dany at all. What happens with her dragons is not a joyous moment. Her highlight was in the last season. While she’s now Queen of Meereen and it appears all is going well on the surface, but underneath, things are starting to shake. This is reflected with her relationship with the dragons. And what she ends up doing to them. She locks them up, one flees, this is all about Dany. She’s not being who she’s meant to be.

    I think it is likely we’ll end with a Bran/ Children scene.

    Non Book reader here. Since this is an even season (4) ending, I would think it ends on a scene focussed on some game-changing event North of the Wall. So far they have followed the theme of Fire-Ice-Fire ending of seasons. I would think Season 5 would again end on Daenerys, and more importantly, something to do with dragon(s).

    ArgonathofBraavos,

    I agree. There’s no chance the Iron Born just fade away, not this time. Cutting both the Greyjoy bros likely means changing the story a lot. D&D haven’t done that yet, though season 5 will be the one to test them on that front. I think we may well get an Euron. Victarion… I hope so, but I don’t know. Aeron is as good as cut, though he might make a cameo in the Kingsmoot (I would say this is still unlikely though).

    Really hoping that this reddit post isn’t bullshit… Honestly, the Greyjoys (outside of Yara, who I believe should become a regular next season) only really need to appear in two-to-three episodes.

    Honestly, the Greyjoys are by far the most interesting characters in the book. Definitely the most interesting family. Even the most generic character amongst them Asha/Yara is still great. But they have Theon, Big Vic, Euron, Aeron and that’s without taking the historic members into account Dalton Greyjoy seems to be an utter badass. The Ironborn version of Prince Daemon Targaryen. And that with the limited page time they get in comparison with the Targaryens and the Starks.

    Please, you simply don’t understand the greatness of Big Vic. For starters, his chapters are amongst the funniest in the entire series, the only one that comes even close is Cersei. He’s an utter badass and he’s just an odd duck. Characters like him don’t often get a voice of their own, but GRRM makes him into an interesting and even sympathetic character (despite the horrible shit he does). He’s also great in the sense that he’s so straightforward. Not every character needs to be a brooding bastard or a master player. Big Vic is a breath of fresh air.

    Oh, and screw you guys :p, Mads is the better actor and he certainly would make the better Euron. They might not cast him for reasons mentioned, but he would undoubtedly be better. He would be to Euron what Charles Dance is to Tywin, namely the nec plus ultra.

    He would even like a role on the show, especially if he get’s a fight scene with his good friend NCW I see Euron’s story going that way in the books, so yeah for that!

    McNulty is the Crow’s Eye. Support Dominic West! He turned down the role of Mance because he thought he would have had to spend a couple of months in Iceland, and he didn’t want to leave his family for that long. It’s time to offer him the chance to play another king, and this time assure him that he won’t film for that long.

    But it was a “cheap-ass twist that demeans the RW,” if that’s how you want to put it. It happened… just like Grey-Robb happened. Just because we didn’t see it or read it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. There are those of us who really were hoping to see something that indicated something macabre (or dare I say…hopeful) was afoot. Why aren’t we getting stories about the BwB and wolves escalating their attacks in the riverlands??? Ahhhh!

    Don’t give up hope yet man. He was probably just confused. The tour guide probably saw the earth movers dumping sand and maybe other people from the production overseeing everything.

He would have been the perfect Mance, and the character probably would have had more screentime if he had accepted the role. Euron is pretty much the last character left that he could play.

But jentario made the point he doesn’t appear to have aged a day. So they could make it work. And Dominic West can definitely do the playful yet menacing side of Euron. I always think of Euron as really having a blast in day to day life. Like he’s fucking with everyone and gets enormous enjoyment out of it. But he also has a cerebral side where wheels are turning in his head and he’s plotting the future. He’s an interesting character.

    The name of most new characters isn’t a spoiler. A few new names- Stoneheart, or Aegon, for example- would raise a big red flag for the Unsullied, especially when they’re used in some kind of context and really need to be covered.
    I think the character descriptions, it’s mostly just if they include some kind of plot element or hint at it, not just a personality trait. But if you’re in doubt something, just cover it up for the time being.

    Has there been a casting speculation thread just for the Greyjoy brothers (Vic, Euron, Aeron?) Feels like they’ve been discussed ad nauseam but as parts of other threads not one of their own… What say you OitF? It would be hilarious if you left Mads off the likely candidates list.

    But it isn’t really a rah-rah GO STARKS revelation or even a continuation of Cat as a character. She’s transformed into a ghoulish shadow of her former self. Fucked up state of affairs and more tragic than anything. I want the Frey’s to pay as much as anyone but Lady Stoneheart just makes me sad.

    JamesL,

    It will be interesting how they do our favorite raspy-voiced woman with a heart of stone…if they do it (which they will). GRRM hit us over the head with Thoros’ resurrection capability and Beric’s tiredness of being resurrected and Arya’s dreams and violation of guest right and hints of wolfpack/BwB insurrection activity….and it wasn’t a “cheap ass twist” in ASoS. It was a keen twist on the Stark/North Remembers revenge concept.

    Tatters,
    That was very funny. :) I like that ASoI&F gives us a new appreciation for the dead and undead.

    JamesL,

    It isn’t though.
    Seeing Catelyn resurrected would have been cheap. Seeing Stoneheart in action, though, tells a very different story. The Unsullied will still gather some hope from this, but just like Oberyn’s head that hope will be crushed in the premiere of season 5 when it is revealed that Stoneheart is even farther away from Catelyn than they ever imagine. This isn’t your typical fantasy resurrection by any means, and showing it like that at the end of season 3 would have yielded a bad reaction. In season 4, like in the book, we drop right into Stoneheart.

    What I don’t like is that they haven’t been setting this up. At all.

    I heard a rumor a few weeks ago that they might be filming earlier this year, but there was never anything concrete and nothing about specific locations. I’m sure they’re in pre-production, but there haven’t been any cast sightings and no new cast announcements. So hmmm. Just hmmmm.

    Sunfyre,

    We have no inkling that we’ll see either one of them this year. Unfortunately that reddit thread is no proof. There’s no photos of anything new, just one guy claiming someone told him something about a kingsmoot.

    I really do want Mads Mikklelsen as Victarion, but imagine that will be difficult.

    West and McNulty (who I have a very difficult time distinguishing) always strike me as too modern.

    Apart from the right color of eyes, Regan doesn’t really fit Euron. He was always my favorite choice for Aeron though, there’s something about the guy. I can’t put my finger on it, he’s a big fellow but he’s also kind of fragile. Like he could easily be unhinched. He would be great as Victarion’s (played by Ray Stevensons) supporter and Euron’s (played by Mads Mikkelsen)adversary who is still suffering from major trauma because Euron most likely molested him when they were younger They’ll probably cut if of course, but if they had enough screen time to do it justed he would be great in that role

    Tim: We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish the remarkable casting of Mads Mikkelsen as Euron.

    Tyene Audition

    An absolutely terrible audition. IMO, if the Dornish storyline is going to be a prominent one as the Lannister’s decline, they have to get the Dornish women right. I would advocate going for actresses that are slightly older than their book counterparts (and more experienced as actresses), so as to raise the probability of a mature performance. This audition was a hideous caricature of Tyene, and I would hate for the limited range of an actress to limit the power of the Bornish storyline.

    jentario,

    LS will get a very mixed reaction from the unsullied though. I know there will be plenty of “jumping the shark” comments if she is included in the show. The Brienne and Pod storyline this season seems to suggest that she will be showing up but an issue that many people seem to forgot is that this is a role that many actresses would have no interest in playing. People don’t seem to even think about whether or not Michelle Fairley is even open to playing a mute zombie role like this. This issue is what makes me think there is a good chance she never shows up in the show at all.

    McNulty is the Crow’s Eye. Support Dominic West! He turned down the role of Mance because he thought he would have had to spend a couple of months in Iceland, and he didn’t want to leave his family for that long. It’s time to offer him the chance to play another king, and this time assure him that he won’t film for that long.

    I will modify what I said before Season 3. The only way we get Dominic West for Euron is if we get Wendell Pierce for Vic. “See him? That bitch there? Cut his throat and throw his motherfuckin’ ass in the ocean.”

    In the show, Sansa says “they say” her mother’s throat was cut to the bone, much like “they said” Tyrion had his nose sliced off at the Blackwater (but he didn’t). So Cat’s throat may not have actually been cut to the bone. And even if it was, that doesn’t mean her vocal chords can’t be healed through the resurrection process. I’d like to hear her speak in a raspy voice, personally, though I would also be fine with her as a mute. Just not sure Fairley would be excited about that…

    I think LS will be in it, on top of all the rumors and the stone hear pic, remember Arya ran away when the bwb mentioned they were going to attack a Lannister camp that was set South near the river? Then Sansa mentioned that they dumped Catelyns body in the river. So I’m pretty sure the bwb found Catelyns body. And Brienne is heading towards bwb territory/heading the wrong way because of Pod, so it’ll be Brienne and Pod who confront LS this season. I hope at least.

    Posted June 8, 2014 at 11:09 am | Permalink

    Reading this thread you really wonder whether people have watched this season or not.

    People talking about “Forgive me” being something with Ygritte and Jon, others claiming it is certain that “Take charge of your life” is Lady Stoneheart, others saying “Meereen” hasn’t been heard yet

    Just so everybody is clear, “Forgive me” was Jorah’s banishment, the portion of “Take charge of your life” that we have here was used during Sansa’s testimony, and presumably the score for the Darth Sansa scene was also an extract from “Take charge of your life” since Littlefinger said those words to Robin in that scene

    “Meereen” was heard when the champion of Meereen rode out the city gates in “Breaker of Chains”

    “Oathkeeper” is a darker variation of a theme that has often been used for the Hound, for instance in his scene with Bronn in the brothel in “Blackwater” and in his scene with the Brotherhood without Banners in “And now his Watch is Ended”

    This leads me to believe that we may indeed get a Brienne/Hound confrontation in the finale, he may be the guy who gets his ear bitten off

    HOWEVER, the fact that the theme in question was used around the BwB, combined with the fact that this theme is named “Oathkeeper” (and is considerably more sinister than the version of it we had in the Hound scenes I mentioned) leads me to believe that it may indeed be used for Lady Stoneheart, even if I do think a Brienne/Hound scene remains more likely

    Let’s not forget how D&D love to have characters who don’t meet in the novels cross paths in the show, plus if Brienne doesn’t meet Stoneheart in the finale she will need proper finale material, and I don’t think biting off the ear of a man we don’t know would be that interesting, so making it someone we do know who also happens to be marked for death (aka the Hound) makes more sense (even though I really don’t want that to happen)

    Another argument in favor of the likelihood of a Brienne/Hound meeting, is the possibility that The Hound/Gravedigger theory is true and will end up being important, in which case this may help set some of that up

And it’s already known that Brienne’s arc will end at the bloodgate at the Eyrie, there were promotional pics with Brienne and pod and the guards of the bloodygate. So if Brienne is going to teleport from the Eyrie to the Westlands in the last episode, they won’t meet in season 4.

    Tyene- He has a good voice
    Someone- We’re lucky he is a singer, if he were a fighter we might have been in trouble; It’s against my code to hurt a woman. It’s amazing how many man (something) beat simply at this code. Wouldn’t say you’d beat me.
    T- Oh, and how is your arm?
    S- Wonderfull, it wouldn’t feel right to leave Dorne without that scar. You think you are leaving Dorne? No (something). Dornish woman are the most beautiful women in the world
    T- Thank you
    S- I said Dornish women, I didn’t say you.
    T- I am not the most beautifull woman you have ever seen?
    S- I’ve sen quite a few women, in all seven kingdoms.
    T- Tell me one woman more beautiful than I am
    S- Well, now, in KL, there was an absolut-
    T- There was a what? Hm? (Taking clothes off) In KL you were saying.
    S- Was I?
    T- There is a woman more beautiful than I am.
    S- What’s that? My memory is not what it was earlier.
    T- And how is your arm now?
    S- You seem concerned with it.You must really like me.
    T- And how is your head?
    S- My head? You dont even wanna know Whats going on in there.
    T- What was that? Are you sure you are feeling alright?
    S- I’m sure, a bit woozy but that is to be expected after a good (something).
    T- Your nose is bleeding.
    S- I’ts not, it’s the dry air.
    T- My dagger was coated with a special ointment from the “Azai” (I assume it’s Asshai). I’ts called “The long Farwell”. It can take sometime to work, sometimes several days, but if one single drop makes contact with the skin: Death. The only antidote (playing wth necklace)… Who is the most beautiful woman in the world? Hm? Who, sorry?
    S- (Weak voice) You.
    T- (Takes something from the necklace and throws it to S) Dont’t drop it… Hm… I think you are very handsome aswell. (Sends a kiss and laughs)

    Dammnit, just listened to the season four soundtrack, of course Ramin Djawadi delivers as usual with a tremendous score, but listening to Oathkeeper there is no really big chilling portion which would be a LS reveal, it’s just the Hound/BR fight, which by listening to the track is in the middle of it. The Children isn’t LS either, the first 30 secs isn’t LS, not chilling enough, it is music associated with Dany, I gather its the chaining of her children, which isn’t near enough of an awesome scene to conclude the season on. If this ends up being the case, that would be two seasons in a row with a letdown anti-climatic scene that doesn’t come close to the first two seasons. Viewers want a totally f$%&ing cool closing scene which will have the internet buzzing for weeks and months like the first two bad ass endings. I really had hoped (fingers crossed) that D&D learned from their mistake last season.

    strokememarge,

    Having heard the whole album, The Children basically confirms that the CotF congregation will be the season ender.

    Oathkeeper is the fight for sure, and the veeeeeeery end of the track has a sudden eerie jolt… That said, the end of Mhysa also had a single suspicious note that I thought would be LS, so I won’t read too much into it this time.

    I disagree with most people that LS should be the ender. The impact of that plotline on the overall story is very very small so far, whereas the impact of Bran’s plot seems like it will be huge. On the show, Bran’s story in season 5 will be really interesting. LS, not so much (unless they move past DwD).

    Here’s The Children:

    Overall, a very upbeat and lively track, so am doubting there’s some LS action involved. The violin at the end is absolutely beautiful!

    Can please someone start an online petition to make Djawadi release Oberyn’s theme??

    It’s a real outrage that he would omit this one from the OST.

    Downloaded the album today, of course. Any thoughts on what “He Is Lost” is? It’s very tense and actiony.

    Also, the lack of Oberyn’s badass guitar theme is incredibly disappointing.

    Jared,

    The beginning of “Mereen” plays when Dany is approaching Meereen, and the end of it plays when she crucifies all the slave-masters and stands on that balcony looking all regal.

    I’m sure, now that Djawadi knows that Oberyn and that theme are so popular, it will probably become the theme for Dorne and will be on the next soundtrack. ;)

    By the way – Is there really no thread to discuss the soundtrack in general? There definitely should be – if only to praise Ramin Djawadi and analyse which themes are where and what it might mean.

    Pretty bummed Oberyn’s music isn’t included :( Hopefully we’ll get more of the same on next years soundtrack with the introduction of a few new players.

    I feel this is going to be an amazing episode even if Lady Stoneheart isn’t revealed, and I really hope fans don’t chastise the writers if they don’t include her at this time. This is the TV Show…not the books. Fans of both can never keep them separate.

    Either way, here is how I can see the episode playing out as far as major events go, just because of the music cues…

    -Jon parlaying with Mance. Stannis arrives *Heavy VFX battle that keeps getting referred to*
    -The hound and Arya departing & her escaping(Maybe a fight with Brienne…hoping not but I won’t go crazy if it actually happens)
    -Dany seeing the bones of the dead child and chaining her dragons
    -Tyrion’s escape/the murder of Tywin and Shae “You Are No Son of Mine”
    -*hoping for this*Brienne and Pod meet the brotherhood and a fight ensues…she takes a few out but they are defeated and brought before LSH “Oathkeeper” (the end of the track is clearly eerie and ends with a “reveal” type of cadence (3:15-end). I can’t see the end of this track being meaningful to the hound/arya’s story in any way)
    -End of the episode-Bran and company find the tree and are saved by the children of the forest “The Children” …ppl keep saying the beginning of this track is relating to LSH but are forgetting that Bran is ALSO a Stark and that is technically a variation of the Winterfell Theme. Hence Bran meeting the Children. Plus it is clearly called “The Children” lol and the last songs on the soundtracks are always the ones that end the season. This honestly would be a WAY better ending to the season than LSH because it takes the show to a whole other level just like Dany did at the end of Season 1 with the introduction of dragons. Also, ppl will probably stop bitching about how Bran’s story is going nowhere when it may be one of the most important of the series. Also, If they do end it this way it will lend to a theory I have. S1 ended with Dany/Dragons (Fire) S2 Ended in the north with White walkers (Ice). S3 Dany/Yunkai/ Dragons (Fire).S4 Bran/COTF in the North (Ice)

    Sorry this was so long haha

    I echo the sentiments that Oberyn’s theme should have made an appearance somewhere on the album. It’s one of my very few complaints about the soundtrack – which, otherwise, is phenomenal. I’m so glad we got more music than last year (which was way too short).

    My minor complaints are the following omissions:

    End Credits music from Two Swords
    Oberyn’s Theme (as mentioned above)
    Tyrion’s Trial Music (including the end credits variation of The Rains of Castamere)

    Aside from those things, this ranks right up there for me with the Season 2 album. Just amazing music all around. :)

    I also want to mention how happy I was to hear the track “The North Remembers”. I loved this theme’s use in Season 3′s “Dark Wings, Dark Words” (during Catelyn’s talk about Jon) and was sad not to see it on the album last year. I don’t know if it’s the exact same variation of the theme, but it’s very close. :)

    Brandon,

    I completely agree with you. “The Chldren” really sounds like it would be played for the closing credits, and the two possibilities of the final scenes were

    1) Dany chaining her dragons
    2) Bran meets Bloodraven and Children of the Forest

    and I would go with the second one. Like as you said, it correlates with the pattern Fire-Ice-Fire endings of the last 3 Seasons.

    I really think Stoneheart would be moved to S05.

    [Let's not forget that it is confirmed already there would be a wight attack. This and the CotF's rescue would make Bran an intersting character Season 5 onwards. Now everyone would know that Bran is really up to something big.]

    SkyWrathMage,

    I could see stoneheart moved to s5 as well. The only thing that still has me hoping is Lena’s instagram pic haha and that music. To be completely honest, I love these books but allot of the “WTF!” moments happened in the 3rd book. And if they want to keep the momentum going, that may be a good idea to put that reveal off.

    I can see them introducing Dorne/Martells & Sandsnakes next season, and more than likely some more regarding the greyjoy’s plot and asha aka yara being more prominent. One thing they have put off for the longest is Jon’s ability to warg. So that’ll probably be revealed in the beginning of next season. There are definitely things to look forward to. I hope TWOW comes out at least by spring of next year so all the book readers can speed through it before the s5 premiere hahaha because at this point they are certainly going to surpass some book storylines at the pace the show is going.

    Oberyn Wan Kenobi,
    I don’t know, there’s a bit of “The north remembers” in there.
