Games of Thrones, Season 4: Your Favorite Killing-Beloved- (and Un-) Characters Show Returns
Another Brick in the Wall On one hand, you've got Kings Landing, where intrigue looks to remain the rule. On the other, is it possible to make them fight for the length of the entire season? I spotted: fights in the woods, fights on The Wall, and guys on horseback. Kit Harington hit the gym a lot in the offseason, might as well get the most out of those abs.
Lookin' good there, Lefty.
"They call him the Sand Spider."
"Probably because it sounds scary."
There's the first appearance of the Red Viper, AKA Oberyn Martell, AKA new member of the Small Council who wants revenge against Gregor Clegane for the rape and murder of his sister Elia during the sack of Kings Landing. That's him jumping around with a spear in battle with a very large armored fellow.
"The War Is Not Over."
It's easy to forget that even after the ass-whomping Tyrion and his pyromancers visited upon Stannis Baratheon's fleet in the Battle of the Blackwater, Stannis is still alive and looking to take his rightful place on the throne. Are there enough of Robert's bastards left to sacrifice to make this happen? Or will be "treated" to the sight of more shadow baby births?
"Why Have the Gods Made Me Love a Hateful Woman?"
Rumor has it these were Chris Martin's last words to Gwyneth Paltrow.
Game of Thrones Season Four premieres April 6 on HBO. L.H. Puttgrass would be so proud.
