Game Of Thrones Season 4 Speculation For Song Of Ice And Fire Readers
All the smug bastards (their last name would be 'Readers') that have poured over every word of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" don't want recaps of the previous seasons of Game of Thrones, they want to talk about the future of the HBO fantasy and analyze all the advance looks (like trailers one, two, three and four). What big events will fans get to see in Season 4? What changes have showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss made in their small-screen adaptation of the second half of "A Storm of Swords?" How much from "A Feast of Crows" and/or "A Dance with Dragons" will be included? And, of course, who will live and who will die? All men must die. A few women too. Winter is coming. And so are SPOILERS. If that wasn’t clear by now.
One more chance. The following article is ALL SPOILERS...
King’s LandingThinking about the upcoming year made me realize that this season will probably have the highest body-count of named characters yet with King's Landing serving as a particularly deadly location. And those that don't die, make sure to get the hell out of dodge. The second episode, "The Lion and the Rose," will feature the Purple Wedding and fans all over the world popping champagne bottles when King Joffrey takes his final sip. The wedding will also function as a way to bring a bunch of new characters to the series and their arrival in the capital will shake things up in the short and the long term.
More Tyrells will take up residence in King's Landing, including Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace. The most exciting addition, however, has to be the envoy from Dorne with Pedro Pascal's Prince Oberyn 'The Red Viper' Martell and Indira Varma as Ellaria Sand coming to stir things up in the Lannister controlled territory. Sorry, Baratheon. Oberyn and Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane's fateful showdown will occur in the seventh installment (aptly titled "The Mountain and the Viper") which means Tyrion will be in chains with Cersei at his throat from sometime in the third until, well, that's a good question.
Will Jaime and Varys help him escape before the season is over? If so, both Tywin and Shae will also bite the dust unless she isn't involved in the betrayal in the Benioff and Weiss version. Oh yeah, and Tommen becomes the little King! Jaime will also get his hand on a new golden hand as well as start to sour on his sister when his newfound morals get in the way. He'll spend the entire season in King's Landing working on his sword-fighting with Bronn (a great replacement for Ilyn Payne) but not before sending Brienne off with Oathkeeper to find Sansa. Right. At this point, Sansa will have already left the Westerosi capital with the ‘help’ of Littlefinger...
