Before ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4, Catch Up With All of Season 3 In Just 30 Minutes!
Whether or not you buy that HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ could really wrap up George R.R. Martin‘s sprawling saga in just seven seasons, season 4 will soon be upon us with the April 6 premiere, “Two Swords.” Unlike the titular blades, though, some of us are a bit rusty. Never fear, you can catch up with all ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 in just one half-hour video!
Courtesy of HBO, a new half-hour special (25 minutes, technically) recaps all of the major twists and turns of the season with behind-the-scenes insight from the cast, specifically focusing on the “Politics of Power” that will only grow more complicated with the coming season. Feel free to avert your eyes again when it comes to “The Rains of Castamere,” though the special doesn’t exactly tread lightly when it comes to everyone’s favorite wedding, even in the opening montage.
In the meantime, there’s always photos, trailers and teases for the April 6 premiere, while HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
Provided you’ve got the time to spare, relive the third season in the video above, as we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ biggest season yet to premiere on April 6!
