    Well we’ve got Joffrey’s wedding. I’m thinking this will be in the season opener. Will Walder Frey be invited to the nuptials? I hear the cook has a special pie (that’s to die for) he wants to serve him, it has onions, carrots, mushrooms, lots of pepper and salt, a rasher of bacon, and an unusual ingredient that only he knows. Maybe they will serve handburgers and staked fingers at the feast…mmmm taste like chicken and they’re finger licking good. Given what happened in the last wedding I don’t know how the show can outdo its self.

    Jon and Sam are reunited. Poor Sam, how can a person go through everything he has and hasn’t lost an ounce of weight?

    Ygritte and Jon, after their last meeting I’m thinking they will never ever get back together again. Feathering Jon will probably be a sticking point in their relationship…3 to be exact. But will they kill each other that is the question. Who does Ygritte think she is anyway…an evil dark Cupid? Besides using Jon as target practice is so…Joffery.

    Arya looks like she has come to a crossroads in her life. I pity the next person who ticks her off.

    Tyrion, Sansa and last but not least Shea, looks to me like troubled waters are ahead. Not to mention the ripe smell coming from Tyrion’s bed.

    Theon, well maybe his sister can help him, and lift his spirits by bringing him a sausage on a stick…he must be famished. But considering what he has been through, it may be a mercy to just let him die a quick death.

    Cersei and Jamie, who knows what kind of reception he will get from his maniacal sister. Throw Brienne in the mix and well… I would love to see her and Cersei exchange barbs.

    Bran may be the key to the whole war if he can find this three eyed raven.

    Daenerys, will she make it across the sea with all those people and their families following her? All I can say is she is going to need a lot of ships and a ton of toilet paper.

    And speaking of the sea will she find Gendry lost out there?

    Stannis, what (or who) will his red witch do next?

    White Walkers just about the coolest men on the planet. Do they have a plan or are they just winging it?

    When Bran told the story of the Rat Cook my mind went right to Frey but now that I have had time to think on it I wonder if Craster has done the same thing as Frey? I mean he sacrifices his baby boys to the White Walkers. What if one of his ancestors was the original Rat Cook? Will Gilly’s son take his place? Why do the WW need sacrifices for anyway?

    Season 3 only got to about 2/3 of the way through book 3 (both parts) but then it also covered the end of book 2.

    The TV series seems like it's getting more out of synch with the books as they go on. The books pace the key events out such that you have to reorder them slightly or end seasons with events that aren't at the end of a book. Joffrey's wedding for example, Sansa's next phase in life, as well as Littlefinger's, real Arya getting somewhere with her life at last, *fake* Arya coming into the fold, the faith of R'Hllor spreading in Westeros, the new era of the Nightwatch etc... many things are going on that they've not yet or barely touched on in the TV series.

    I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't to start reading the books - from the start. The extra details you learn make the TV series more enjoyable. Even knowing what is coming up doesn't diminish the entertainment of the books.

    Season 4 has A LOT of amazing moments to thrill us with. It will be slimmer pickings after that though.

    Bad news….. Good news

    The bad news is the White Walkers are coming.

    The good news is they are keeping global warming at bay.
