Game Of Thrones Season 4 Preview Is 15 Minutes Of Awesome

Last night, without any warning, HBO aired a juicy, 15-minute preview of Game of Thrones Season 4. Today, it was released online. Commence the freaking out.
Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing, is loaded with brand-new footage, charming cast interviews, and a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into shooting one of the most expansive (and costly) television shows of all time.
The main takeaway from all the talking heads (including the now ubiquitous GoT showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) is that in the upcoming season, the stakes have been raised. While it feels like that's something we're told about every new season of every show ever, we can't help but buy into it here. Especially when Peter Dinklage tells us that they've topped The Red Wedding "in many ways," words that are at once exciting and terrifying.
In the featurette, we also get our first glimpses of Khaleesi's new throne room, Jon Snow's new reality, and what figures to be one of the main centerpieces of the season: the royal wedding. While last night's bonkers episode of True Detective still has us reeling, this teaser has helped remind us that no one does event television quite like Game of Thrones. April 6 can't come soon enough. (Time)
