Filming for HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones season three is still going on full steam ahead and we have a brand new pic that reveals a major plot twist from the books for the upcoming season — and more. *MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD*

Again—there are major spoilers ahead for those of you who haven't already read the books.

The brand new pic shows our favorite Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau), missing his right sword hand (just as in the books). We can also see the back of Brienne of Tarth played by Gwendoline Christie.

And here is the evidence!

Also, Winteriscoming's reliable sources report that the very important Red Wedding scene from the third book, A Storm of Swords, is being filmed this week as well as the next, and they are starting with exterior scenes. A report says they were currently filming yesterday at Saintfield Estate which could be used as a location to shoot the exteriors. Sources also report that they will film the wedding proper next week into the Paint Hall.

This confirms that the Red Wedding will happen in season three.

Are you glad to see that Jaime will lose his hand by the end of the season? And how about the Red Wedding — are you guys looking forward to it or are you dreading it?
