Well it’s just another four Days until season four Game of Thrones and as I said before I am indeed psyched. To pass the time I’ve been entertaining myself with guessing what the creators will have to change from the book based on logistics, budget, continuing with things they have already changed and due to an actor’s performance they are very different characters than they are in the book.
There are a number of things I could talk about but I’ll stick to the least spoilery item I can think of. In this case the songs. So far starting with season two a song from the book has been featured. In season Two it was “The Rain’s of Castimere” serving as the Lannister leitmotif for the rest of the show. In Season Three it was “The Maid and the Maiden Fair”. For this season I suspect or at least hope that it will be “Hands of Gold are Always Cold”. I can’t be completely sure… The character who sings it to blackmail Tyrion with it hasn’t appeared when he should have. But they could certainly introduce him anytime in the first four episodes like they did with the Reeds.
I sincerely hope they use it since it has a nice double meaning… first figuratively as a song about the tragedy of Tyrion and then literally with a Lannister with a real hand of gold.
But however it goes I’m sure Ramin Djawadi will make it sound great!
