A few behind-the-scenes photos reveal two major TV show characters meeting that haven't encountered each other in the books — at least not yet, anyways. Spoilers ahead, obviously!

First let me set the scene: In the books, Daenerys has trouble ruling Meereen, to say the least, so she marries a Meereenese noble named Hizdahr zo Loraq in a bid to bring peace to her city. The wedding is celebrated by a series of gladiator games, and away we go:

Yep, that's Tyrion watching the games with Daenerys and her new husband, as well as Missandei. In the books, Tyrion spent a long time just getting to Meereen — a trip which involved being enslaved, masquerading as a performer, and even joining a group of mercenaries — but he and Daenerys have not yet met face-to-face. Seeing the two characters together, and chummy enough that Tyrion gets a spot of honor next to the queen clearly means Game of Thrones isn't going to dawdle in telling Tyrion's journey.

Oh, and what's this?

Looks like Jorah managed to get entry into the games as well, as although in a much more dangerous way — as a contestant. Theories, anyone? Predictions? Dire warnings?

I'm surprised there's not a shot of Jorah banging on the glass at Dany's wedding. "KHAAAALEEEEEESSIIIIIIIII! KHHAAAAALLEEEEEESSIIIIIIII!"

Anywho, this looks great! I must admit I was getting tired of Tyrion taking his sweet time getting places (how many times can one wonder where the whores go...). Does this mean we skip that ****SPOILERS****** stupid plotpoint about Dany's younger "brother"? I hope so. Dany is the remaining Targaryen, dammit!
