Game of Thrones Season 3 Next, but First Inside Finale for Emilia Clarke, Dinklage and Westeros
Game of Thrones Season 3 is what everyone’s waiting for, but post-season 2 finale we can take a minute, reflect, and take in. That’s exactly what HBO does with showrunner tandem David Benioff and D.B. Weiss going inside “Valar Morghulis” in this 5 minute featurette. As we told you earlier in the week, both will be back for Game of Thrones season 3, and season 4 if/when that gets greenlit by HBO. I think a mob would rage and go on a violent spree that would make Lollys Stokeworth cringe if the adaptation of A Storm of a Swords was left halfway done, so barring a disaster one would think season 4 is an afterthought. HBO fans, however, are always a bit apprehensive due to the demise of shows like Deadwood, Rome, and Carnivale, though admittedly Game of Thrones seems to have penetrated this very different new media that we exist in now.
Benioff starts it off, talking about Emilia Clarke’s Daenery Targaryen and where the season took her, essentially saying that she he to go from the vagabond princess she’d been all her life to knowing what it means to be a Queen of destiny (and worse, reality). Don’t expect it, don’t talk about it, be about it. The opposite of her late brother. He goes on to talk about Tyrion and his fall from grace, back to taking short jokes.
Weiss starts off when the clip cuts to Stannis and Melisandre, moving on to the whitewalkers in the North, and focuses his bit on the fantastic element of the show and the decision to end season 2 stressing this breach of reality. Initially, for most of In the books, excluding the prologue, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series for many doesn’t feel fantastic, which has helped many people convert people to a fantasy book; what is very much an epic fantasy book. I think in terms of a TV show, LOST was really good at this initially (though oddly in the the end, it was the fantastic and SF element that everyone was mad about not getting explained).
Enjoy the featurette below.
