Hold on to your hats, Game of Thrones fans! Or better yet, your heads. Episode 9 of the upcoming Season 4 is set to get some heads a-rollin', director Neil Marshall tells Irish Film & Television Network as reported by MStars News.
“There are a few beheadings in there, as is my wont!” Neil says of Season 4’s ninth episode, the last before the season finale. “And yeah, we got to blow some people up, set people on fire, and do quite a few high falls. There’s a lot of very physical action and a lot of fighting — sword fights and physical fights. We pack quite a lot of stuff in there.”
The penultimate episode of Season 4 is such a large-scale production, Neil compares it to an already established fan favorite: the “Blackwater” episode of Season 2 that featured the wildfire-heavy battle for King’s Landing and ended with the full-scale destruction of Stannis Baratheon’s (Stephen Dillane) fleet.
“It’s kind of the same as ‘Blackwater,’ in a sense, in that these episodes are bigger than most of my films!” says Neil, whose feature film credits include the likes of 2010’s epic Centurion starring Michael Fassbender.
As for other details about the episode, Neil keeps things vague — “what I can say is that it's a huge episode, a huge production” — and admits he doesn’t even know what it’s named yet. “Someone online suggested it might be called ‘Castle Black,’ but all I know is that it’s called episode nine!”
Castle Black, huh? We did see that one spoiler photo taken at the Wall…
What do you think the Season 4 finale has in store? Will it be as epic as Neil says? Got your own theories? Share them in the comments.
