HBO has released a behind-the-scenes featurette on the fourth season of Game of Thrones, and if you’re not a book reader, some of it won’t mean much at all. I am not a book reader, and my first time watching it, I didn’t pick up on much, except for a certain glimpse at a certain fourth season wedding that even non-book readers would have had a difficult time not hearing about, if they spend any time on the Internet. However, the Game of Thrones tumblr account, Winter is Coming, took many screen shots of the featurette, and labeled them, and in doing so, gave away some spoilers. The spoilers were not enough, in my opinion as a non-book reader, to ruin anything except for the very last image, which allows us to deduce a major plot turn (though, it may be a major misdirection). If you don’t want to know anything going into the fourth season (which premieres on April 6th), then scoot on out of here before you go any further, because these images may give away much more than you’d like to know.
It appears as though Jamie Lannister gets a replacement hand.
Here’s a look at the Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne, aka The Red Viper.
And here’s a showdown presumably between The Mountain and the Red Viper.
This appears to be a glimpse at the much hyped Purple Wedding.
Here is an early look at Styr, the Magnar of Thenn, with whom I believe book readers are quite familiar.
Here’s a Jon Snow battle scene.
Here’s a couple of shots of Daenerys Targaryen, because why not?
I’m not sure we’ve seen any images of Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as Tycho Nestoris, but here he is talking with Davos and Stannis.
Finally, this image sees Tywin Lannister on the Iron Throne, along with Mace Tyrell, The Red Viper, Cersei Lannister, Margaery Tyrell, and maybe Tommen and Loras.
And here’s the full behind-the-scenes featurette, in case you can spot more spoilers/items of interest.
