    It was awesome. Pure awesomeness.

    My wife and I got free t-shirts, photo ops on the iron throne replica. GRRM was there too doing Q&A with the actors that played Hodor, Arya, Shae, and Samwell.

    The episode... I don't want to say too much, but it's awesome.

    Just finished re-reading the books, so much more comes out at you when you are reading them with hindsight. Bought the World of Ice and Fire app for the iPad and all, it's got a chapter from the new book on it. Downloaded the series one box set on sky and all, going to watch them all again.

    Season 4 QA, good read

    You traumatized everybody with the Red Wedding. Happy?
    Dan Weiss: It feels good to make so many people feel so bad.
    David Benioff: We were here in Dubrovnik scouting when somebody emailed us that reaction video, which was really fun to see.

    What characterizes this season for you?
    Benioff: Itís always tough when you try to figure out a unifying sentence, because the show encompasses so many different characters and different story lines. Whenever we come up with something that sounds good, it sounds like a trite reduction of what weíre after.
    Weiss: As youíre talking, Iím trying to think of a good trite reduction.

    Iíll ask this way: What excites you about this season?
    Weiss: The thing thatís most exciting about this season is the thing thatís most terrifying about this season, and that is itís a giant leap forward in ambition and scope. And thereís a whole bunch of things that shall not be mentioned that are tough to do.
    Benioff: In the second season, we had a great battle at the end of the season and that was a huge challenge. We were really worried if we would be able to pull off a cinematic scale battle on a TV schedule, and so many of our resources went into that. In the end, thanks to Neil Marshallís directing and the acting, it was one of our best episodes. But the other episodes werenít nearly as difficult. This season we got a battle that will hopefully surpass the Blackwater battle ó and it still might not be our biggest episode of the season. There are episodes that are just as challenging in terms of the effects demands and ó maybe not the quantity of action ó but the complexity of the action. We always before had breathing-room episodes. Thereís just not that kind of room for relaxing this season. Itís just more intense than it has ever been before. Thereís more action. The amount of effects that we haveÖ Last year, we felt like we were starting to figure this out because it felt like things went according to plan. This season, we realized you can never actually have it all figured out.

    Usually when you go off-book and add scenes that are not in the novels, itís dialogue-driven content. But from what Iíve been hearing, this season youíre adding more action.
    Weiss: Definitely, several action set-piece scenes that were not in the books.

    Would it be fair to call this season the one with the most action?
    Benioff: Yes, thatís an objective truth.
    Weiss: The most minutes of action.

    Youíve said before that some of your favorite scenes were in season three. Youíre still pulling material from book three ó A Storm of Swords ó but the scenes youíve specifically cited before ó like the unleashing of Danyís dragons and the Red Wedding ó are done. Does it make the show more of a challenge now that the parts you were most anticipating are behind you?
    Weiss: We thought of the third book as season three. But itís more that a lot of our favorite scenes are in the third book in the second half. So itís more balanced than we had realized.
    Benioff: There are scenes in season five weíre starting to plan out and anticipate. Thereís so many Iím looking forward to for next season.
    Weiss: But season 12 is really going to be the oneÖ [Laughter]

    I ask you this next question every year, but in all fairness you keep improving the show every year: Are you confident this will be the best season?
    Weiss: I wouldnít say weíre too confident. I would say weíre terrified that it wonít be. Because thereís this implicit agreement you have with the viewer that as you ó meaning the cast and crew ó get better at what youíre doing that you can deliver more and more, in terms of character and scale and scope. Itís a challenge that we have set for ourselves that each year becomes more challenging because the pole keeps being set higher.
    Benioff: After season three, which weíve been looking forward to for so long, thereís a fear that whatever comes after the Red Wedding will be an anticlimax. I remember when we outlined season four with [writer] Bryan Cogman, I remember thinking that if we can pull this off, it will top season three.

    Did you go to HBO to get more money for the battle episode, like with Blackwater?
    Benioff: Yeah. Itís not just for the battle. This is the most action and VFX across the board. We did need to get down on our hands and knees once again, but it wasnít just for the battle episode. The last three episodes are massive. We needed help and luckily they were there to answer our calls.

    Youíve given the dragons their biggest growth spurt yet this season. What are they like this time?
    Weiss: Theyíre entering their adolescence. Theyíre having minds and desires of their own and theyíre staring to not be all that interested in what their mom has to say. And thatís difficult when your children weigh 1,500 pounds. Theyíre really pretty massive beasts.
    Benioff: Think about the skull Arya hides in during season one ó thatís supposed to be a full-sized dragon. And our dragons are still not even close to that. By the time we get to the end, season seven, thatís where they have to get to ó assuming they survive.

    Can you talk for a moment about Danyís journey?
    Benioff: Danyís had a fairly easy ó not easy, but in terms of her conquering ó time since leaving Qarth. Sheís managed to conquer every place thatís come her way with great success. In the spirit of the books, sheís learning itís much easier to conquer a country than it is to rule it.
    Weiss: Emilia [Clarke] has done a lot of really impressive work this year and things take a darker turn for her. Weíre going to see how she deals with a kind of adversity thatís more troublesome than in the past. Sheís facing problems that canít be solved with armies or dragons. Emilia has to go to some places where she hasnít gone before with this character, and sheís done them so powerfully and seemingly effortlessly that I think people are going to be moved by the results.

    Thereís one character we havenít seen in the previews: Theon Greyjoy. Whatís he and Ramsay Snow up to?
    Weiss: Nothing good.

    It canít be all torture.
    Weiss: Itís not all torture.
    Benioff: Dark places. Itís hard to go there without giving it away. Theyíve moved on in their relationship. Moved out of the torture room.
    Weiss: Itís the next phase.

    Weíve seen Tyrion in chains in the trailers, so we know he spends some time in jail.
    Benioff: Weíre in Tyrionís cell something like 70 minutes this season. Itís a lot. Itís not a big room. Itís obviously not well lit. And we never thought of [the amount of time] before we were told about it because itís so compelling. Theyíre some of our favorite scenes from the season, just two people talking in a little dark room. Itís a testament to Peter, who I think has gotten better and better every season, but this season is just another leap that heís gotten even better. Weíve been looking forward to this season because so much of this season rides on him.

    Thereís also the Arya and The Hound storyline this seasonÖ
    Weiss: If thereís going to be any breakout center of interest thatís going to blow peopleís minds from a direction they never saw coming, it will be Arya and The Hound. Which is entirely on the power that [Maisie Williams and Rory McCann] bring to those scenes. Maisie is just a phenomenon. And when you have access to that, and are lucky enough to have her in your show, you take advantage of that. And Rory keeps upping the ante each year with this portrayal of a man who actually has a lot of nuance, though he didnít seem like it out of the gate. The two of them together are so perfect it just seemed crazy not to give them a proper meaty storyline. Arya is a character who has had the core of her life ripped out of her and now exists in a very dark place for a young girl, and sheís driven largely by revenge and hate. And sheís got a great mentor in revenge and heartlessness in The Hound. Itís almost like a twisted road movie. They rub off on each other in ways that are unexpected and we hope are going to be compelling.

    And weíre also introduced to the Prince Oberyn, The Red Viper, who brings both an agenda and different lifestyle.
    Benioff: Itís a part weíve been looking forward to casting for a long time. As you say, heís so different from all the characters weíve met before. Weíve never met a Dornishman. Itís a whole new country and lifestyle and set of values. Itís fun not just for the character, but seeing how that character with his own worldview conflicts with the characters weíve already established. And again, this is one of those times [as writers] weíre thinking: What if [Oberyn's lover]Ellaria Sand and Cersei met at a wedding had a conversion? What would that be like? Probably not friction free.

    Thereís also Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) making an appearance in an episode this season.
    Benioff: We were so excited when we saw him in the audition. You get the list of people coming in and we saw his name. We didnít even know he was an option. It was probably annoying for him because we kept wanting to ask him questions about his other shows. But heís great. We hope to bring him back next year.

    Thereís an 800-foot pyramid [briefly teased in the trailer]. How did you pull that off?
    Benioff: It was maybe the biggest challenge [production designer] Deborah Riley faced, and was probably the stuff we were most nervous about. Itís really easy to go into a sci-fi territory. Itís really a testament to Deb Ö [the interior of the pyramid sets] had incredibly experienced crew people gasping. It just doesnít happen often anymore since more and more things are done with CG. But weíve done these lavish huge sets and there something old Hollywood about that that I love. We have an incredible VFX team, the best in the world, and we rely on them for so many things. But for the actors thereís something different about walking into a real environment and being in a room that has the power youíre trying to convey. Itís almost like the way cathedrals were designed to create awe. If you were a peasant and been working in fields your whole life and never seen a city, youíd walk into a cathedral for the first time and thatís a religious experience ó because youíve never seen anything like this before.

    Last season the nude scenes seemed to get more story driven than before ó more crucial, in general, than they have been previously. Was that a conscious tweak?
    Benioff: I think people think we have content discussion before each season that determines how weíre going to allot it. But itís really a case-by-case basis. Itís about where characters are in their story lines. Jon and Ygritte, thatís where they are and where that scene is. Thereís not a nudity document at beginning of season and we portion it out through various episodes.
    Weiss: There is one nude scene, seven jokes and five stabbings in every episode. And if you steal one from another episode you need to add it later. You need to maintain the average violence of sex and violence.

    Ratings have gone up each season. With the numbers well beyond point the show needs to survive, do you still care about the ratings? Does it matter?
    Benioff: We always get reports from HBO the day after the episode airs and we get this document at end of the season dissecting the ratings. Itís important to them so itís important to us.
    Weiss: On a human level, those are people who are watching the show because somebody else most likely told them about it. So itís people responding to what you do and thatís a big part of why you do what you do.

    Is there anything about your show that you think is not good enough?
    Benioff: Yeah, a lot of things.

    Like what?
    Weiss: Weíre not telling you. Because once we say it, then youíll look for it and go, ďWow, that IS terrible, I didnít realize how awful this element of the show actually is.Ē
    Benioff: We always think the writing could be better, whether itís the structure of entire seasons or an episode. I think the writing would be the main thing thatís a constant act of refinement.
    Weiss: Every year thereís a couple horrible Monday morning quarterback moments. Oh, if weíd only done this we could have saved ourselves time and made it better and everybody would have been happy.

    Whatís the scene your most proud of?
    Benioff: The Red Wedding. We were anticipating it for so long. To actually get that far [in the story] and then itís [a question of], ďIs there any way we can pull it off in such a way to have the same emotional impact that it had on us in the book?Ē Weíre very proud that actually seemed to work for most of the audience.

    Is there any possibility of deceased characters from previous seasons showing up in flashbacks or dreams this season?
    Benioff: Watch and find out.

    You know [Thrones author] George R.R. Martinís master plan. Is there a character on this show whose loss would really zap a lot of the life from the series?
    Benioff: There are some characters who will die that I wonít think people will predict. And as George has said, weíre killing off more characters than in the books and will continue to do so.
    Weiss: There are several characters whose loss will do that. But it doesnít mean they wonít die.

    So... Sansa is about to kill yourself, and Arya is about to murder the world. To be expected when their family has been ripped apart physically, emotionally, and geographically.

    Also, teenage dragons might be the death of Daenerys Hope she finds some leverage.

    Was an okay 1st episode... got us caught up and back into the swing of things. Arya is becoming my favorite character.

    That'd be pretty ironic lol. If that's the case, she wouldn't die by dragon fire, it would have to be death by being eaten alive haha
