“Game of Thrones” didn’t come on this week but Season 4, Episode 8 will come on Sunday.

The episode–titled “The Mountain and The Viper”–is just three episodes from the season finale, which will come in June.

The episode will likely show Oberyn Martell, who is known as “The Red Viper,” fighting “The Mountain” Gregor Cleagane. Oberyn told Tyrion in last week’s episode that he’ll be his champion.

On Wednesday, Catelyn Stark actress Michelle Fairley said that she can’t elaborate on the show’s story arc involving Catelyn and Lady Stoneheart, as mentioned in George R. R. Martin’s books.

“In one word, no, I can’t,” she said, according to Yahoo

Fairley also said that finally saw the episode in which her character is killed off, which was in season 3.

“[Laughs.] Yes, I did, finally. I was working in Toronto last year, and I did [a conference] with David [Nutter], the wonderful director of that episode. He was in Los Angeles, and Richard Madden, who is the wonderful Robb, was in London, so the three of us were on a call together watching it in different studios across the world. We could hear each other, and that was the first time I saw it. I didn’t watch much of it, I must admit,” she said.

Weeks ago, Tyrion Lannister actor Peter Dinklage spoke about the show’s overall narrative.

“I don’t think anything’s fair in King’s Landing, is it?” he told the Los Angeles Times about his character. “He’s the fall guy in this situation, isn’t he? They just wanted to make it all easy and make me go away, but I think Tyrion is quite a survivor. Hopefully he will find a way. I hope so, because I like my job. … It’s great fun. Since I’ve joined ‘Game of Thrones,’ it’s been such a pleasure.”

“It’s great storytelling,” Dinklage added. “It goes back to the writers, and television has gone through a transformation that’s really attracting great writers because the writers have creative control with a lot of these TV shows now. We have two of the best writers working today, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and they make my job so much more fun. It goes back to the scripts.”
