Waiting for your favorite show to return for a new season is one of the longest periods of waiting you have to endure, right behind waiting in line at the DMV and waiting for your bro to get his hair just right before going out to the club. Luckily, the crew of ‘Game of Thrones’ has eased the pain by releasing production blogs, featurettes, and teasers every so often to give their fans special behind the scenes looks at what they’re doing while the show is off the air.
In the latest video blog, the focus is on the characters and their storylines in the upcoming season. The two-minute video makes sure to emphasize that some characters that start out with all the power come to lose it and others without power gain some. A number of returning cast members such as Peter Dinklage, Richard Madden, and Michelle Fairley, as well as newcomers like Ciaran Hinds who will portray the King Beyond The Wall Mance Ryder, make appearances and briefly touch on various aspects of the new season while being intercut with new footage from the set. You can see the video below:
I don’t know about you, but around 1:40 when they mention “tremendous reversals” in store for this season, I noticed the snap zoom on “King” Joffrey Baratheon. If there’s anything that I’m looking forward to in season three, it’s seeing that little brat get what’s coming to him. That, and more of the Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen.
