Over at GQ

http://www.gq.com/en...le-oral-history

There is this quote:

Benioff: There’s another battle bigger than this one (Blackwater) coming up, but not until the end of season four. So we’re preparing our speeches for how we’re gonna ask for more money.

A battle in Westeros or in the East?

I kind of think Ran is right tho the end of season 4 seems a bit late, but logic seems to win the day.

I agree with the general consensus... but I don't know how they're going to justify leaving it so far towards the end of the season.

I refuse to use spoiler tags, so I'm just going to sit here and stare at the rest of you. Silently. Without spoiling anything, but without contributing, either.

Carry on...

That would be

. It will be the major incident in season 4, finally connecting at least some of the stories and characters again.

As to Dany's story - we don't need to see

on screen, nor the

. My guess would be either way that they are going change the latter into a mere takeover of the sellsword companies rather than the sellswords and Dany fighting and winning a victory over the unprepared Yunkai'i.

No, as noed here. GRRM's also recently confirmed he said no such thing at Not a Blog. It's an error by the reporter.

@boojam

It's interesting how Martin used to be able to cover very important plot developments in very few chapters or by merely outlining what had occurred. I would like to know what happened in the meantime to warrant endless passages on the most mundane of things.

thx for the confirmation.
sux though....
so, we really don't know anything about the progress right? I mean, it's not even certain that he started writing it on a full-time level?

It's interesting how few Dany chapters there are in Storm of Swords, and how much happens in them.
So much of it is a lot of talk , especially her determination to build an army, buy one, obtain sell swords ... and other such things.
Then almost off page a ton of action happens.
One has to be curious how producers want to handle this.
I mean large scale action.
We know about a certain involved sequence that is really not a battle that D&D are fond of.
Lots action at the Wall , I think D&D are fond of that.
But the East? If besides the sack of Astapor (I hope they do that justic) do they want to include other military action?

Whoa! Silly me, I did not even read what I quoted carefully!
Season four ... that what Benioff says!
Now we have known this implicitly for a long time now.... but does this confirm HBO had indeed green lighted season 4 ?!
