Winter is finally coming to your televisions this Sunday! But this time, the HBO series will work on the theme, “All Men Must Die”. Every “Game of Thrones” (GOT) character that you love and the ones you LOVE to hate from the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will be coming back for their fourth season offering. “Game of Thrones” Season 4 Episode 1 “Two Swords” is set to air on April 6, 2014 at 9 p.m on HBO.
“Game of Thrones” Season 3 Recap:
“Game of Thrones” Season 4 follows the events after the controversial and the impressive adaptation of the “Red Wedding” (Season 3 Episode 9 “The Rains of Castamere”) from the book series penned by author George R.R. Martin.
The author was known for his unpredictable way of giving death to some of the book’s notable characters who you probably have been rooting for from the very beginning. In an interview with Conan O’Brien posted on Rolling Stone, he shared that he preferred writing unexpected ones.
“I want my readers — and I want my viewers — to be afraid when my characters are in danger. I want them to be afraid to turn the next page, because their next character may not survive it. “ said Martin in his Conan Interview.
According to A.V. Club, the infamous “Red Wedding” was one of the greatest creative milestones for both Martin and the creators of the HBO series. An ambitious author, known for the surprising departure of his characters, has delivered the book with conviction that can be considered as “nervy genius.”
On the other hand, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have also proven their worth with the successful adaptation of the first three GOT seasons. Their TV version has been spot-on with the book that immediately brought the readers and non-bookies to tears.
