Last season’s ‘Game of Thrones’ climax, and one of the series’ biggest shockers, is undoubtedly the brutal massacre of the Red Wedding. In the wake of that horrific and gut-wrenching scene, fans of the popular drama have been asking numerous questions, but in a video interview during the foreshadowing of season four, ‘Game of Thrones’ actor, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), asked the main question that everyone has had on their mind, “where do you go from there?”
According to executive producer, David Benioff, the end of season four will have some of the series’ most mind-blowing and most shocking scenes. While that doesn’t sound too comforting, seeing as how emotionally traumatic and shocking the Red Wedding was, it still has fans eager to witness what’s to come in this unpredictable series.
Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) states, “This season, the story just gets more intense,” she continues, “there’s some really juicy, mental, storylines.”
“It’s not building towards one specific climactic event. There are more climactic events in season four than there have ever been before,” says executive producer, D.B. Weiss.
In season four, fans will be introduced to some new faces. Pedro Pascal will portray Oberyn Martell. He’s described as a sexual, dangerous, smart, passionate man with an agenda, who poses a threat to the Lannisters.
But one new face in particular will be due to a drastic casting change.
Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) new ally and possible love interest, Daario Naharis, who was portrayed by Ed Skrein in season three, will now be portrayed by Michiel Huisman (‘Nashville’). According to TVLine, Huisman will be appearing in multiple episodes of season four, and has already inked a deal for a possible fifth season as a regular.
There will be no introduction to the change. In the interview Zap2it attained with Huisman, it was stated that there was, “never a cause for concern with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They felt that the introduction of Daario 2.0 in the show is clear enough that the audience will be able to figure out quickly who he is.”
If fans are cheering for the ‘good guys,’ they have something to look forward to. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) describes that they’ll be making a comeback this season and will be taking a stand after the massive hit they took in season three, but word of advice: don’t get your hopes up.
Remember, this is ‘Game of Thrones’ after all. Anything can happen.
Season four is coming Sunday, April 6 at 9 PM EST on HBO.
