Big Game of Thrones news: Entertainment Weekly is reporting that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have revealed that the elusive king-beyond-the-wall, Mance Rayder, will finally make an appearance in the upcoming third season, after having been mentioned for the past two seasons. The character is said to have originally been apart of the Night's Watch with Jon Snow and co., before he became a leader of the wildings - AKA, that freaky group of people who live north of the Wall. Additionally, the third season will only follow the first half of George R. R. Martin's Storm of Swords.
Too early to start getting excited about this? Nonsense.
