If you haven’t seen Season 3 of Game Of Thrones, allows us to summarise: HOLY BLOODY CRAP. Right, you’re up to date and ready to go with this fascinating insight into the fourth series of HBO’s masterfully conceived fantasy epic. It’s called Ice And Fire: A Foreshadowing and is a full 15 minutes of preview goodness, with contributions from co-creator David Benioff and key cast members.
So what does Season 4 promise? Well, first of all there will be considerable anxiety for Tyrion Lannister. Peter Dinklage’s Imp is in jeopardy from all sides and, according to Dinklage himself, will be reliant on the goodwill of his brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to bail him out.
Also in evidence here are Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons, increasing in size and lethal threat, and the wintery goings-on north of The Wall. But the most significant event, at least for Westeros’s wider future, is the Purple Wedding between – boo! hiss! – King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).
