HBO’s Game of Thrones, much like its sprawling cast, knows how to fill a room — and so it did at the San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, letting slip with a few pieces of Season 2 scoop, a hint at what Season 3 won’t be like, much ruminating on ghastly deaths, and one response to the question of who is Jon Snow’s mother. Here’s a peek at the Thrones panel discussion.
* The casting of fan favorite Jason Momoa actually came from fans. The producers couldn’t find the right guy for the role until they stumbled upon a fan suggesting the actor on a message board. ““No offense, I hadn’t heard of you before,” said executive producer David Benoiff. “I hadn’t kept up on my Baywatch.”
* Why does author George R.R. Martin like to kill off beloved characters? “It keeps you on your toes,” he replied. “I want people emotionally involved in my story. … I want readers to be afraid to turn the page, not knowing who’s going to live and die.”
Season 2 Scoop: Thrones Casts Maester Cressen, Melisandre and Stannis
* Surveying Season 2, “Everyone dies, sorry,” Benoiff joked. “It was all a dream,” added Weiss before getting serious. The EPs promised lots of new characters like the Red Priestess and “bad stuff lurking north of the wall.” We’ll also “see those dragons and wolves start to grow up,” teased Benoiff. “It’s a season of exploration.”
* The Season 1 DVD and Blu-ray release won’t have any deleted scenes, sadly. “We didn’t really have any deleted scenes,” said executive producer D.B. Weiss. “We pretty much used everything we shot. It was an ambitious and challenging schedule.” But that doesn’t mean fans can’t expect some treats on the DVD release like Jason Momoa’s audition, featuring the “dance that won him the role.” EP David Benoiff pointed out that the dance wasn’t even in the actual scene, but Momoa went for it, ripping his shirt open before.
* If the show is lucky enough to get to a third season, it will not correspond with the books at that point, revealed Benoiff. It’s “too big to do in one season,” he explained. Whatever happens, the Battle of Blackwater will be in the show even if they have to collect fan donations to fund the epic scene. “We’re going to pass my hat around to get some extra contributions,” joked Martin.
* Does Martin feel pressure to give fans a proper ending and “not pull a Lost,” one fan asked. “I guess I am concerned about the ending,” he replied, who singled out the end of “Lord of the Rings” asa great ending. “I certainly hope that the ending will tie together. Hopefully, it will make some people happy. I’ve always been a fan of the bittersweet ending. I’ve said to people that’s what to expect.”
* Don’t ask Kit Harrington who Jon Snow’s mother is. “I have no idea,” he said. But he was more than happy to share his dream ending for the end of the book series. “I want Jon Snow to be on the throne. That’s the brilliant thing. It’s so up in the air. Who knows who’ll be sitting up there, who’ll be dead and who’ll be alive.”

Just finished Book 2 last night. So much better than the 1st and that's saying a lot. Can't wait to see it on tv. I feel like it's so much easier to read after having a face to the characters from watching the 1st season.

Just watched the Comic Con clips. Jason Momoa (Drogo) is awesome. Pretty much everything he said cracked me up.

For such an honorable and noble man, Stannis sure does seem to like his dark magick.

Finished book three tonight [still need to read the epilogue], and I learned one thing through books two and three:


the Tully women are useless C*NTS. Sansa doesn't seem nearly as bad as she did in the first book. Not even close. It's easy to hate Lysa Tully, but deep down Catelyn is much worse.

"Haven't read the epilogue" ... "The Tullyl women are useless C*NTS".


This will all make sense in 25 pages or so.

eh... I know too many.. I had read the name Roose Bolton a few times but never paid any attention to it... then I read he's the new head niggga in charge of harenhall so I go and look him up. I think nothing of it, until I find out his current title, which is 3 books ahead of me now It's hard not finding spoilers when you go to a wiki page or what have you.. luckily I am not that opposed to spoilers, the story is still fantastic.

I just picked up Dance today, along with going hardcover on all the other books. I still have 600 pages left in book four anyway, so I'm a ways off. I've slowed down a little.

Five books in hardcover cost me like 150 bucks.

you probably could have found the first 4 in hardcover at second hand bookstores.

That's how I felt. I sat at like 200-250 pages left for a few days and then decided to crush it last night in a little over an hour. Was well worth finally finishing and seeing how everything ended up. Trying to pace myself to not tear through book 3 with season 2 of the show still a while off.
