Game of Thrones
Mark Gatiss, who plays the Braavosi banker Tycho Nestoris, was at the Mumbai Film and ComicCon. And when they pressed him for details about what's up with his character, he responded, "Well, I don't know, I think… I think Tycho Nestoris is from later in the books and they've brought him forward a bit. I think I go.. I go to… Do I go to the Wall?"
This leads people to believe that Tycho Nestoris does not go to the Wall in season five, since Gatiss seemed unsure about whether that was in his character's future. Add to that the fact that Gatiss mentioned he only filmed one episode this season — and that's apparently the material we saw being filmed, which takes place in Braavos.
Without going into too much detail for people who haven't read the books, if Tycho doesn't turn up at the Wall, this could make a big difference to Stannis' storyline. It's possible that the scene in season four where Stannis visits Braavos is going to be the only meeting between Stannis and Tycho Nestoris, which would remove a major turning point from Stannis' arc. Also, certain other key characters in that storyline, like Wyman Manderly, have not yet been cast. So in light of Gatiss' comments, there's some speculation that Stannis' storyline will be way different from the books — or some of it will be pushed back to season six.
