HBO should be required to send out stress relievers to every fan of Game of Thrones in advance of the fourth season, because, as evidenced by Sunday night’s 15-minute featurette Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing, we’re in for a wallop. After waiting for months to find out how the aftermath of the infamous Red Wedding would reverberate throughout the Seven Kingdoms, the clip imparts quite quickly that the terrorfest was just the beginning. Winter is still coming, after all, and there are many more problems facing the realm and abroad.
“Some of the most shocking and mind-blowing scenes of the entire series come at the end of this coming season,” explained executive producer/writer/director David Benioff. With clips from upcoming episodes, behind-the-scenes-footage, interviews with cast and crew, and answers to fan questions, Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing has [almost] everything a viewer of the series could want. With glimpses at the upcoming royal wedding, a storm churning on The Wall, and allusions to some seriously scary dragons, the teaser for the season-to-be promises more action, thrills, and chills than ever before.
Even Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is impressed: “We pick up the pieces [from the Red Wedding] and top it in many ways.” With trouble a-brewing for almost every character involved on the series, the video will leave you anxious, worried, and begging for April 6th to arrive already.
