“Game of Thrones” will come on at 9 p.m. Sunday on HBO, and a live stream is available here.
The latest showing will be Season 4, Episode 9, titled “The Watchers on the Wall.”
The showrunners teased what will happen during the episode this week.
Writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss told EW.com about the challenges of shooting the episode.
“Giants. Giants are tricky. Having Neil Marshall directing it, you have confidence; like going to a really good doctor who’s going to make everything better. Neil is very soft spoken, but he’s the kind of guy when he’s on the set everyone is calm because he knows exactly what he’s doing. It’s a very intense episode, more intense than Blackwater. We’re seeing it now, even before visual effects have gone in, and it’s still magnificent,” Benioff said.
Weiss added: “With Blackwater when we got the episode in, so much of it was visual effects dependent we were kind of unsure — the performances were fantastic and the action was great, but we weren’t entirely sure what we had until the pieces were put together. But with this, even Neil’s first director’s cut that we saw without a single frame of visual effects finished, just something about it really grabbed us by the neck that’s very rare even with the great directors we’re fortunate to work with.”
The teaser comes as Oberyn Martell actor Pedro Pascal is slated to join a new Netflix drama called “Narcos.”
Deadline.com reported that the show will premiere in 2015.
“Narcos is the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels across the globe and attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict,” the report says.
Pascal will play a Mexican DEA agent.
Pascal’s character, Martell, was killed by The Mountain in a duel.
