I caved and watched the trailer a couple of days ago or something. Why, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, why did you cut your hair? It is like Josh Holloway on Intelligence (just wrong).
I went back and watched the trailer for the third season and that had clips from “The Rains of Castamere”, so if you have not seen the new trailer, beware that it probably has massive spoilers. Most season trailers show just the first three episodes. Based on the trailers, this fourth season will be more exciting, so that is nice.January 15, 2014 at 11:08 am #309099
He cut his hair because Jaime cuts his hair in the book. He actually completely shaves as soon as he gets with Brienne because his blond hair makes him too recognizable. I’m not sure why they decided to have him cut it now as opposed to then (you know, when it actually made sense) but there’s some symbolism there because he’s a changed man and all that.January 15, 2014 at 12:33 pm #309100
But come on, I think that we all know which one is sexier:
Hopefully, he at least grows backs some stubble by the end of the season.January 15, 2014 at 6:06 pm #309101
Hell, he looks good to me, either way. Gotta hand it to him (no pun intended), Jamie Lannister is one fine looking dude. But my heart will always belong to Ned Stark.January 15, 2014 at 7:37 pm #309102
i am so ecxited about this season, and the trailor looks good, not as good as the last one. not to give anything away to non-reader but this season being the second half of the book will be more action pack and there really shouldnt be any filler or set up episodes.

Cannot wait!March 9, 2014 at 5:32 pm #309104
Per the press release,
Diana Rigg is now a series regular, so will not be able to be nominated
as a guest actress. Take it with a grain of salt though because the
press release last year said that Gwendoline Christie was being upgraded
and she was not.
Based on the episode descriptions, is the second episode still the one that Peter Dinklage will submit?March 9, 2014 at 5:49 pm #309105
Same. The wait seems like an eternity!March 9, 2014 at 10:46 pm #309106
Can’t wait!!!!!March 11, 2014 at 1:00 pm #309107
‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kristian Nairn Comes Out: ‘I’ve Been Waiting for Someone to Ask’
TV | By Greg Gilman on March 11, 2014 @ 12:31 pm
The actor plays fan-favorite character Hodor on the popular HBO series
“Game of Thrones” star Kristian Nairn, who plays Bran Stark’s 6′ 10″ protector Hodor, is fully aware that the gay community considers him “a bear” — because he is a member of that community.
The actor has been waiting for someone to ask him about his sexuality so he could publicly “stand up and be counted.”
“Well, in all honesty, when you talk about ‘the gay community,’ you are talking about MY community,” Nairn told WinterIsComing.net when asked about his “bear” status. “I am aware of it, yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99 percent or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all!”
A “bear” in the LGBT community is considered a large, rugged man who projects an image of rugged masculinity.
“Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that,” the Irish actor continued. “I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone my whole life, in fact. And I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, because it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!”
Nairn, a DJ and actor who hails from Belfast in Northern Ireland, says he understands why it has taken so long for someone to ask about his sexuality, and respects the privacy of other performers who may not want to address their own publicly, but he felt it was important to be open about it.
“It’s a very small part of who I am on the whole, but nonetheless, in this day and age, it’s important to stand up and be counted,” Nairn added. “I have and always will stand my ground. So, yeah, people have been great, on the show, but I don’t see why it would be an issue.”March 11, 2014 at 5:11 pm #309108
Ew, if Dinklage’s best episode is the 2nd one instead of the 10th one.
Like, he doesn’t even really do anything in your choice.
And Jaime is never sexy.March 11, 2014 at 6:19 pm #309109
^Yeah, I wouldn’t bet on episode 2. Dinklage’s episodes have always come towards of the end of the season (1.09-Baelor, 2.09-Blackwater, 3.08-Second Sons). This year should be no different and, if the season follows the books, it’s probably the 10th. Although given that this season is adapting parts of books 4 and 5 in addition to the second half of book 3, that could change.March 11, 2014 at 8:31 pm #309110
Unlikely, given that the writers have already told us that episode 9…stars Jon. They were more specific than that, but I can’t remember the spoiler tag and this site moves too slowly for me to look for it.March 11, 2014 at 10:26 pm #309111
I can’t frigging wait.
Regarding the Emmys, however, it feels like Game of Thrones is destined to always play bridesmaid, since it manages major nominations but just can’t manage a major win, outside of Peter Dinklage for season 1. This year will be no different with the inevitable Breaking Bad sweep, which could take every major category (Series, Writing, Directing, Lead Actor, Supp. Actor, Supp. Actress, possibly even Guest Actor) except Lead Actress (where Game of Thrones has zero contenders, unless Emilia Clarke upgrades. Highly unlikely) and Guest Actress (where, apparently now, Diana Rigg is no longer eligible).
Awards or not, this is one of the best series on television. Breaking Bad deserves everything it gets for that genius final season but I’m happy to see it have strong competition amongst – for sure – House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and The Good Wife. I have no doubt Game of Thrones will be added to the list. (Poor Homeland. I just can’t in good conscience put you on that list.)
