    Who is the actress that is supposedly cast as Stannis wife?! She looks too hot, unless they give her a mustache.

    Any other chick parts yet to be cast, apart from Meera?

    I think Shireen is the only one so far.

    Probably best to talk about this in the show thread for book readers.

    Just don't even talk about stuff like that in the show thread. Take it to the book threads.

    I actually am getting a bit worried for this show. The scope is SOOOO big and the reality is that there aren't enough characters dying or being phased out to make up for the number of characters being added. For instance in The Wire they kept adding new characters but old ones got phased out due to death or the story line. This just keeps getting bigger and bigger and sure they haven't included a ton of smaller characters and used folks like Bronn to do what multiple characters did but still. You now have the following storylines all being followed

    Dany in the Free Cities
    Arya running around
    Brienne and Jaime
    Catelyn
    Robb's war
    Stannis and his people
    Sansa and Joffrey
    Tyrion v Cersie
    Jon beyond the wall

    Sure some of these will come together and all but that's a lot going on for one hour long show to follow. I feel like they're going to need to push some of the stories aside for a while or downplay certain characters/storylines

    And that's partially why I had the thread locked. It's too tough for people to refrain from posting spoilers/book 3 info.

    How are they splitting up the episodes in Season 3? Will it just be 10 in Spring 2013 and 10 in Spring 2014 or will it be 10 in Spring 13, 10 in Fall 13?

    The gap in between next year's seasons is going to be worse than the wait between the last two Harry Potter movies.

    So it seems they are doing the same with Beric that they did with the Mountain in changing actors. Also, Thoros looks like a huge druggie.

    I don't remember what Thoros looked like in season 1 so it isn't as bad as the Mountain

    Wait, the Brotherhood was in Season 1? I hadn't started reading the books when I watched that season so I wouldn't have noticed if they were.

    Yeah they both played a very minor role, Beric probably smaller since the Mountain did cut a horse's head completely off, I was just nitpicking.

    Reeds are perfect IMO. I thought Thoros would be a little younger, but I'm fine with it. Blackfish looks to be awesome.

    Everyone else seems to be solid.

    This show is gonna go down as having the largest cast ever, and it's not even halfway done. I'm guessing Red Viper will be in season 3.5?
