I just heard that they're splitting Book 3 into two TV season. Thank God for that! No way they could fit A Storm of Swords into one 10 episode season.

Explains why no Oberyn.

He'll probably be cast in S4, as I think the RW (@chapter 52 in the book, IIRC) will probably be Episode 9 of season 3, and the fallout/tying up of loose ends will be done in EP 10.

Oberyn arrives just before the Purple Wedding, which I think is like chapter 61, so probably the first couple of episodes of S4...

No way they leave out Vargo - I bet he appears episode 3 or 4 unless they rearrange the story line pretty significantly. Oberyn's absence isn't a shocker since they will split ASOS, but I kind of wish they would make this season 20 1-hour episodes and cover the book (poo in one hand and dream in another right?).

I REALLY hope HBO eventually lets the producers do multiple seasons in a year... If they don't, at best, we're looking to at least 2017 before we get to the end of A Dance With Dragons...

I can only imagine it takes a good chunk of time and budget to do it the way they do it now, but damn, 2017 is a long time away lol...

Yea, I really don't think the show will survive the novels. GRRM is way too patient. Luckily ASOS is really the only one that has to be stretched 2 seasons so far.

I just rewatched season 1 and 2 All this week.

Why can't it be 2013 already? I should really finish the first book. I'm half way done, Chap 38...procrastination is my mistress...;(

Well Oberyn actually arrives much earlier in the book, chapter 38. GRRM just never cuts back to Tyrion after that until post-RW. But yeah using the Red Wedding as the final event of season 3 and starting season 4 with Oberyn makes sense.
