The Official Poster for Game of Thrones Season 4: Valar Morghulis

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that aside from The Red Wedding, the rest of the gruesome gauntlet that the characters in George R.R. Martin’s fantasy saga was pushed from season 3 to season 4.  That seems to be, even more than last year, the ominous cloud on the horizon.  The Red Wedding begins a chain of events that will…well, you’ll just have to tune in April 6th and see, won’t you?  Below is the official poster for Game of Thrones Season 4.

EW Releases Five House Lannister Posters for Game of Thrones Season 4

In case you’re counting (and I know you are) it’s now 45 days until the debut of season 4 of Game of Thrones on HBO.  Having binged season three in two days, I’m struck by how little of book three actually got covered.  It really only covered perhaps half, while oddly drawing in elements of books four and five into season three.  The TV show should obviously be its own beast and there have already been several MAJOR diversions from the books for the good mostly, but it leaves me wondering if they’re taking their time with these seasons to give Martin time to get books six and seven out.  Out of all the seasons, three was definitely the most deliberately paced.  I won’t complain if they do eight or nine seasons and more fully explore this world.  It’s hard to imagine ever getting a fantasy TV show like this again unless someone made the same kind of commitment to The Silmarillion (if they had the rights), Dune, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time (cutting the fat), The Dark Tower (making it coherent) or David Eddings’ criminally underrated The Belgariad and Mallorean.  Brandon Sanderson’s phenomenal Mistborn saga just had its rights lapse so someone could pick up an amazing property there.
