The Weapons of Dorne

Not sure how we missed this one, but a few days ago HBO released a video on its Youtube channel concerning the weaponry we’ll see in Dorne. Narrated by weapon master Tommy Dunne, who points out a few very specific weapons, there’s at least one somewhat spoilery piece of information contained therein (well, besides the fact that we’ll see Dorne this season):

Despite Michelle Clapton’s protest, it certainly seems the “nipples” on that leather armor of Obara Sand’s will be pretty obvious on film. Doubtless, as she said, it’s an artifact of the moulding process, but the association’s pretty clear.

As to the spoiler?

That’s pretty clearly Jaime that Areo is swinging his “axe” at—technically not sure if it’s really an axe; more of a glaive, really—in the brief moment when they showing him practicing choreography. The left-handed sword grip is a dead give away. I think it’s safe to say that Jaime won’t be going the way of Arya Oakheart, however.
