If you want absolutely zero information on what season four of Game of Thrones will bring, STOP READING NOW. You've waited this long, you can hold out a little longer. But, for the curious and the impatient, we have some morsels of information to tide you over until the much-anticipated March premiere.
Thanks to director Neil Marshall, we learned a few juicy details about the season's penultimate episode. The story will focus on the battle for Castle Black, and, in classic near-finale style, it will be epic — and bloody. "Three different battles going on at the same time in different places," Marshall explains.
Approximately 200 extras were needed for the episode, plus a large stunt crew, “including this amazing bunch of Hungarian stunt guys." And, there's a set upgrade, too. Along with the preexisting Castle Black set at Magheramorne Quarry, the team built another portion within the Paint Hall for the top of the Wall. It's so huge it took up the entire studio. No doubt, it will be put to good — albeit gruesome — use. If the "Red Wedding" GoT episode upset you (and how could it not?), prepare yourself. There's going to be "a few beheadings in there," Marshall jokes. "And yeah, we got to blow some people up, set people on fire and do quite a few high falls." Is it March yet? We. Can't. Wait.
