In season three of Game of Thrones expect many new locations. Every season the world of Westeros and beyond has grown, and next season includes a stay at the castle of Riverrun, the seat of House Tully. It’s Catelyn Stark’s home turf and where we’ll meet her brother, Edmure Tully played by Rome‘s Tobias Menzies and her uncle, Brynden “The Blackfish” Tully, played by Clive Russell. Riverrun plays an important strategic role as it’s one of the few, and easily the most important ally, of Robb and the North in the river lands.
Picked up by HBO Watch, it’s suspected these few photos are our first glimpse at Riverrun. Not a look at an actual castle, as I’m guessing much of that will be CGI, but this could easily be part of a smaller set, like a dock, since Riverrun is located on a river. Go figure. You can distinctly make out the decorative trouts, the sigil of House Tully, and those flags appear to be the Tully standard.

Like I said, it’s just a glimpse, but I take much delight in seeing anything from Game of Thrones. It’s a promise a new season will be in here … EIGHT MONTHS!! Oh god…this wait…it’s gonna be unbearable…
