With one month left on our countdown clock to the season fve premiere, Daily News has decided to launch a countdown of their own. They were treated to a visit to the set in Belfast, conducting interviews, taking a sneak peek behind the scenes, and the like – and now they are ready to reveal one snippet each day.
The first one is already up and teases – more death. The producers seem to be hell-bent this year on not missing any opportunity to emphasize they are not done killing characters yet. The exact quote from “a production source”:
I hope when it comes out it’s a real shock and a heartbreak. I really hope it is. It’s like Joffrey’s death or the Red Wedding. It’s a scene that we want to have that kind of impact.
Another nice bonus to surface in the past couple days: a new batch of pics, these ones courtesy of Sky Atlantic.
From HBO.com, we also have this new image of Sansa, Littlefinger, and Yohn Royce. The photo info indicates the image is from episode 41, which is the season 5 premiere:
One last minor note- the HBO schedule has been updated to confirm the episode title of season 5 episode 4 as “The Sons of the Harpy.” The episode is showing a running time of 51 minutes.
