Sorry, wrong thread...

Confirmed at GoT's Comic-Con panel: Season 3 will premiere on March 31st, 2013.
Spoiler-free video introducing the new cast (unless you don't even want to hear new character names):
Diana Rigg! I thought the show was due for some new veteran names. And there should be more to come.
New Lannister sigil shirt!
Hey, what the hell?
I ordered this shirt, and now it's disappeared from the HBO store. What gives?
This is my first ever comment on here - was just strolling through all the discussion pages and came up with my own theory on the above issue... (BTW I have NOT read any of the books so this is pure speculation)...
Perhaps the smoke demon/assassin only works if one of it's casters/creators (in this case Stannis) shares a direct blood link to the intended target...?
The gestation period didn't seem to take too long & there's heaps more obvious threats (to Stannis) than that which his brother Renly posed.
Anyways, nice to be here people - and here's to Season 3 being an absolute corker!!
