Superfans of “Game Of Thrones” might be wondering about a scene, seemingly skipped over from the books, centered around Jamie’s return to King’s Landing and his reunion with Cersei. But as Lena Headey recently told Vulture, it could still be coming. “Well, I can tell you that will, uh … that’s in there. It’s horrendous. It’s kind of crazy,” the actress teased. “Interesting to film, because we were … she’s in deep pain, and he wants her, because he missed her, and he needs to know she wants him. It’s just a weird, fucked-up moment. It’s quite mad! [Laughs.] Quite mad. And it’s a great transition for him, the loss of someone he doesn’t particularly like, but that he’s connected to, on a deep level.”
So think on that while you watch the latest trailer for the fourth, and highly anticipated season of “Game Of Thrones.” Of course, the level of secrecy around the show has always been high, but the past week saw HBO drop the titles and loglines for the first four episodes:
Episode #31: “Two Swords”
Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) welcomes a guest to King’s Landing. At Castle Black, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) finds himself unwelcome. Dany (Emilia Clarke) is pointed to Meereen, the mother of all slave cities. Arya (Maisie Williams) runs into an old friend.
Episode #32: “The Lion and the Rose”
Tyrion lends Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) a hand. Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery (Natalie Dormer) host a breakfast. At Dragonstone, Stannis (Stephen Dillane) loses patience with Davos (Liam Cunningham). Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) finds a purpose for his pet. North of the Wall, Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) sees where they must go.
Episode #33: “Breaker of Chains”
Tyrion ponders his options. Tywin (Charles Dance) extends an olive branch. Sam (John Bradley) realizes Castle Black isn’t safe, and Jon proposes a bold plan. The Hound (Rory McCann) teaches Arya the way things are. Dany chooses her champion.
Episode #34: “Oathkeeper”
Dany balances justice and mercy. Jaime tasks Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) with his honor. Jon secures volunteers while Bran, Jojen (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Meera (Ellie Kendrick) and Hodor (Kristian Nairn) stumble on shelter.
