And so, it finally happened. A full 13 years after 'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin published the third of his series "A Storm of Swords," HBO finally reached the "Red Wedding" event that drove producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss to pursue the series in the first place.

As with every new season of 'Game of Thrones,' HBO's adaptation will introduce a wealth of new characters in the upcoming fourth run, some of which were scheduled to arrive earlier but were left out for logistical reasons. Yet, as we prepare for the epic climax of season 3's final episodes, series creator George R.R. Martin has confirmed three major characters we'll be meeting in 'Game of Thrones' season 4!
As fans of both George R.R. Martin's 'Game of Thrones' novels and the HBO series adapting them well know, the prolific author's lengthy novels have expanded beyond the reach of a single HBO season, already plotting seasons 3 and 4 to cover the third book, with similar patterns to follow.

One producer says we'll have less 'Game of Thrones' in our futures than we might expect!
‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 conjures its seventh episode of the season “The Bear and the Maiden Fair,” as Tyrion attempts to placate Shae for his betrothal to Sansa, while Jon and Ygritte bond south of the wall, Daenerys arrives at Yunkai and Jaime takes action to protect Brienne from her captors.
Last week’s ‘Game of Thrones’ episode “The Climb” saw Jon Snow and the Wildlings begin their dangerous ascent of the wall, Melisandre visit the Brotherhood Without Banners, and Tyrion breaking bad news to Sansa, so what will the newest episode bring?
