The 'Game of Thrones' season 2 finale is so close we can almost taste it.  What?  We can taste it?  Oh, nevermind, that's just drool.  Even after the epic battle that was "Blackwater," this Sunday's super-sized season-ender "Valar Morghulis" has been kept tightly under wraps, until now!  Check out the official pictures from the episode, and learn who's been first cast for season 3!

Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' finale "Valar Morghulis" will wrap up HBO's adaptation of the George R.R. Martin novel 'A Clash of Kings,' hopefully shedding light on all the mysteries we've endured this season.  What's happening with Dany's dragons in the "House of the Undying?"  Who's going to come in and oust the naively tyrannical Theon Greyjoy from Winterfell?  Will anyone slap Joffrey?

We've got your first look at the episode in the photos below, but in the meantime, how about a bit of season 3 casting?  In addition to the massive list of names that 'Game of Thrones' executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss gave out, we've learned that young Kerry Ingram will take the role of Shireen Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon's daughter.  We sure hope Stannis is okay, given that we last saw him being dragged off while his army fled!

Check out the pics below, and tell us what you're most excited to see from both the season 2 finale "Valar Morghulis" and the third season of 'Game of Thrones' in the comments!
