Game of Anticipation: the Greyjoys still exist.

They let this guy take up space in their photo blitz.

Balon looks about the same as he did at the end of Season 3.

Yeah, so, Balon is still alive and we’ll have to deal with him before he mysteriously falls off a bridge.

Yara is not amused.

Now this chick, I can get behind. She’s thinking: Oh, fuck, I am surrounded by assholes and I will have to deal with this situation. Can’t rely on anyone to do anything right.

There are a lot of characters and there’s only so much space available in any publicity release, and I can think of so many more engaging characters who didn’t appear in this photo set, while Balon Greyjoy did.
