First is the picture above, Melisandre and Stannis. Melisandre is one of the most intriguing and mysterious new characters, a religious zealot who may have amazing powers. Stannis is Robert Baratheon's brother, and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

Joffrey, still a hateful shit!

Bran! Hodor!

Brienne! She's a tough as nails warrior woman - who also happens to be really ugly. I kind of think the show did it, and even though they hired a model, Brienne appears to be sort of legit ugg.
