Dark wings, dark words. HBO released a whole host of character posters ahead of the March 31 premiere.

4. Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed.

Helen Sloan/HBO

Yes! They didn't cut the Reeds, they just pushed them back. Thank the Old gods and the New because the daughter of Howland Reed deserves screen time.

7. Paul Kaye as Thoros of Myr.

Helen Sloan/HBO

Are none of the ginger boys from the books going to have red hair? Fine, the life of fan is so fraught with disappointment. *flounce*

11. Charles Dance as Tywin Lannister.

Helen Sloan/HBO

I'm pretty sure Tywin had his feelings surgically removed after his wife Joanna died. By the end of Season 3, he will be the most second most hated man on the show. Guaranteed.

14. Richard Madden and Oona Chaplin return as Robb Stark and Jeyne Westerling.

Helen Sloan/HBO

I mean, Oona Chaplin as Talisa Maegyr. You can change your name all you want, bitch, we all hate you.

20. Rose Leslie returns as Ygritte.

Helen Sloan/HBO

For all that is good, HBO, please don't have her say, "You know nothing, Jon Snow" as much as she does in the books. I don't want to feel the need to punch Rose Leslie.
