Game of Thrones Season 4's Dark Warning - Valar Morghulis

Last season of HBO's wildly popular fantasy series "Game of Thrones" ended with a gush of blood (in a Stark red hue, no less) spilling on fans all over the world.

Red Dot Diva is pretty sure viewers still have not gotten over the Red Wedding.

Vengeance is coming. And the fate of many in Westeros hang on a balance.

Yet, there is another feast to behold - a wedding fit for a King. The so-called "Purple Wedding" will have people from different lands invited to King's Landing for the celebration of the union between Joffrey Lannister and Margaery Tyrell. Including someone by the name of Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), also known as the Red Viper.

Will the Night's Watch be able to hold off the invasion led by Mance Rayder and his crew of wildlings? Will Arya Stark get to avenge the death of her beloved family members? Does Daenerys' growing Unsullied army get more powerful with every liberated slaver city?

These are just but a few questions to be answered and played out in the endless power game to seize the Iron Throne. And in this game, underlies the ominous High Valyrian phase "Valar Morghulis".

All Men Must Die.

So who do you think will be next?

To whet your appetites before the impending wedding feast, check out these two S4 trailers:

Oh, dear dear Tyrion! Stay safe!

By the way, in case you think there is something wrong with your eyes while watching S4, a few characters in "Game of Thrones" have been recast!

Instead of swarmy Daario Naharis acted by Ed Skrien in S3, the character is now spots a pretty swash-buckling piratey-guy look by Michiel Huisman:

And the character of Ser Gregor Clegane aka the Mountain (The Hound's older brother) meets its third actor this season - Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson. Yes, Red Dot Diva is eager to see how Hafthor will fare with Ser Gregor Clegane's giant sword. heh heh.

"Game of Thrones" Season 4 will premiere on HBO Asia a week after the USA premiere on Sunday, April 13th.

In celebration of its return to the cable network, Red Dot Diva heard early murmurs that there will be a Red Dot Island version of the Purple Wedding.

Note to self: If invited to the party, remember to skip the wine.
