[BOOK SPOILERS] Episode titles for season 4 Continued


Recommended Posts

i think jon's"death" along with dany riding drogon would make a good ep 9 for season 5. ending the season with the pink letter would be too confusing for show watchers (no offense). just having stannis show up the next season would seem really weird. it would be good if ep 10 included theon's arrival/ his chat with stan from the preview chapter.

ep 8 could have bolton send out the freys and manderleys, and really hype up the battle. then when people hear about it through the letter, they could totally believe it. waiting 10 months for the answers would be really difficult, and it would seem odd to just come back the next season with "hey remember how stannis died, yeah, no he didnt".

i know this is exactly what happened in the books, but that is just different. it wouldnt work in a tv show.

Not sure if it's already been posted (or this is the right thread), but here's the press releases for the first four episodes:


Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact…but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.

The Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning GAME OF THRONES returns for its ten-episode fourth season SUNDAY, APRIL 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time.

Interesting. Now we certainly know where to put some stuff. Like the Hero of Meereen and The gift of mercy in E03. To me it sounds like Slynt, Thorne and Locke are already in Castle Black in E01. But what do you guys think?

Also; Iwan Rheon, Michael McElhatton, Gwendoline Christie and Kristofer Hivju are now series regulars. Yay!

'Two Swords':

Tyrion welcomes Oberyn, Jon meets Alliser Thorne again. No idea if Slynt is already there, but it may be the case. Dany is on her way to Meereen, Arya meets Polliver again, I guess.

'The Lion and the Rose':

Tyrion pitches the Golden Hand idea to Jaime, and draws up a plan for it. The breakfast with the whole court gang, hopefully the book and the Bran murder plot revelation included. I hope Viserys II is properly defended by Tyrion during his bater with Oberyn. Followed by the whole Purple Wedding, of course. No idea about the Dragonstone part. I guess Stannis doesn't like Davos' suggestions. But what does he suggest? To make an alliance with Lysa? Is Ramsay already dressing Theon properly again? I doubt that, he may be allowed to escape and ends up as prey during one of the hunts...

Bran at the weirwood tree from the trailers?

'Breaker of Chains':

Tyrion in prison. Tywin and the olive tree may be either Cersei, Jaime, or the Tyrells. I guess he'll offer Olenna to marry Jaime to Margaery. Tyrion most certainly won't get an olive branch. The Sam and Jon thing seems to refer to the campaign against the traitors at Craster's Keep. Arya and Sandor meeting the dying survivor from the Twins. The duel before the walls of Meereen. It seems as if this thing is going to set as a rivalry between Daario and Jorah, with Dany eventually choosing Daario.


Has Dany already taken Meereen? Could be, but it would be strange... Jaime sends Brienne off with his sword to find and protect Sansa. Jon searches for volunteers to avenge the Old Bear. Bran and his gang stumble on the hut their are hiding in Bran's first ADwD chapter. Perhaps this will turn out to be Craster Keep in the TV series. If Coldhands does show up, he could deal with the traitors in that episode.

The distribution of the storylines seems to be quite clean for now:

KL is featured in all the episodes.

Dany and Jon's storylines are featured in 1,3 and 4, and Arya in 1,3.

While Bran, Stannis and Theon appear in episode 2 (and Bran again in 4).

Am I forgeting any storyline (not counting Sansa)? If this is correct, that's only around 4 storylines per episode, which is quite less than in previous seasons!

Interesting that the episode 2 sum says ramsay finds a purpose for his pet/ reek. Some might assume that this is referring to moat Catlin, but I think it is referring to theon/ reek becoming ramsay,s servant . probably moving him to the kennel to watch over his hounds. I also think he may have reek release the girl he his hunting in the trailer. it is too early for moat catlin and the trailer clearly shows ramsay hunting the girl seen running through the tunnel. so I think he will play a part in the hunt, though he will not actually go along for it.

I like the idea of Jon getting stabbed ending season 5, since the Wall is all politics all season. Stab him in episode 9 and have the final scene of S5 be (as most seem to predict) a Ghost perspective.

With Roose and Ramsay both as regulars, it's now very likely they'll show the Dreadfort in the opening credits.

I hope that's the case. However, I suspect they may have the Boltons take over the remains of Winterfell and establish their powerbase there. Probably easier from a production standpoint than developing an elaborate new set.
