Most Games of Thrones fans need no reminder that winter is coming, but today we got a great one anyway: a 15-minute preview for Season 4, which premieres April 6 on HBO. Cue hyperventilation.
Giant waterfalls! CGI wolves! Bigger dragons! Sam and Jon back together again! Hodor’s dick! The video also features interviews with cast members—skip to 3:35 to hear Rory McCann, who plays the Hound, call Joffrey “a wee prick.” Or better yet, hear Gwendoline Christie, aka Brienne of Tarth, describe her favorite moment in the coming season, when she had to “bite off a man’s ear and spit it in his face.” (Jump to 9:02 to hear the clip and Christie’s accompanying cackle.) Better yet, watch the whole video for a taste of the hotly anticipated season, which promises plenty of climactic moments and a heaping dose of revenge.
