Yesterday, the official Game of Thrones Facebook posted the first new pictures from the upcoming season of the smash hit HBO drama. Now, HBO has all the images uploaded in a high-resolution slideshow. We finally have our first real look at the look of the cast’s newcomers like Stannis Baratheon, Ser Davos Seaworth, and Lady Melisandre.
The set and costume design is absolutely amazing. I’m not sure why anyone would have expected anything less. Stannis looks just about exactly how I’d imagined him. Then you get to Brienne of Tarth, and yikes. I love that she’s actually breathtakingly ugly. I can’t wait for her inevitable meeting with Jaime Lannister.
What do you all think? Have you read the books? Do the pictures meet your expectations? Exceed them? Just how ugly did you expect Brienne to be? Why is Catelyn Tully so goddamn old? Are we really supposed to believe she just gave birth to Rickon a few years ago?
Make sure to tune in to the Season Premiere of Game of Thrones on April 1st at 9:00PM.
