Can you believe that Game of Thrones season 3 wrapped up all the way back in June? Sadly, that means there's quite a long time to wait until spring of 2014 when season 4 premieres. What to do, what to DO?
Well, since the TV series is based on A Song of Ice and Fire, it's easy to figure out what we might be able to see in season 4. Though HBO took some creative license, they actually stuck to A Storm of Swords rather well in season 3. So what can we expect for one of the shining stars of that season, Margaery Tyrell, played by the lovely Natalie Dormer, who can rock a low-cut dress like none other?
Betrothed to the despicable, hated King Joffrey, it seemed that Margaery embodied everything GoT fans love to see in their heroines: She's beautiful, smart, savvy, kind, and has got Joffrey wrapped around her finger. What's in store for her next? Will Joffrey get the best of her?
BOOK SPOILERS about Margaery ahead. Beware!
Before we get to the book spoilers, in case you're interested, Natalie recently spoke to Allure about why this show is so damn popular. She said:
There’s the violence and the bloodletting and the honor. And then there’s the romance and the sex and the naked bodies. There are the costumes, and the coming-of-age stories for younger viewers. There are gay heroes and straight heroes. There’s feminism. And there’s dragons and supernatural shit going on. There’s magic and CGI for the geeks. There is literally something for everyone.
She sounds awesome, doesn't she? And she's right! Though her role is rather reduced in the latter half of A Storm of Swords, it's easy to imagine that HBO may try to build on what happens to her a little bit; she is just so damn likable.
Eventually she does get married to Joffrey, but he dies from poison while celebrating at their wedding. Petyr Baelish and her grandmother Lady Olenna were behind it, but because Margaery was drinking from the same chalice, it's easy to argue that she knew what was coming too.
... And that's kind of it for her role in A Storm of Swords. Hopefully there will be some amazing scenes between her and Queen Cersei, though that the HBO geniuses can come up with. Their passive-aggressive play is truly a pleasure to watch.
I mean: "If you ever call me 'sister' again, I'll have you strangled in your sleep." And you thought your mother-in-law was the she-devil.
Also, we may see part of the fourth book, A Feast for Crows, in the fourth season, when Margaery gets married to Joffrey's younger brother Tommen. Cersei of course isn't pleased and plots to get rid of Margaery and pretty much all the rest of the Tyrells. Cersei freaking out doing crazy shit while trying to protect her youngest son? Can't wait to see how that's going to go down!
Are you excited to see Joffrey and Margaery's wedding in season 4 of Game of Thrones?
