GAME OF THRONES: The First "Beautiful Deaths" Of Season 4

We're 3 episodes into the fourth season of HBO's excellent fantasy series, and the first 2 installments featured a couple of memorable deaths - one of which fans have been waiting to see for a very long time! Obviously if you're not up to date with the show, SPOILERS ahead..

"Survive the realm all over again with “Beautiful Death,” Robert Ball’s artistic interpretation of the most iconic deaths from the first three seasons of Game of Thrones. Whether by direwolf, dark magic, dragon or blade, feast your eyes on the preview below. Experience the complete episode-by-episode illustrated series and submit your own creations at BeautifulDeath.com."




Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact … but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne."

Game Of Thrones will be back with another ep this Sunday.

[frick]ing epic... little bastard
DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 8:29 AM
I'm really digging how closely thy are staying to the source material (exception of the rape scene)..
Tevii - 4/24/2014, 8:31 AM
That Joffrey poster is great!
DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 8:31 AM
ROR- I heard a rumor that the network will continue to run seasons before the publication of Winds of Winter and beyond, with GRRM on to help navigate the story.. What are your thoughts?
Tevii - 4/24/2014, 8:32 AM
DarthDan - I never read the books. what about the rape scene is unlike the books? Did it not happen at all in the books or was it just more graphic in the books?
charlie2094 - 4/24/2014, 8:33 AM
Glad Joffrey died at last, knew it was coming, but still felt great :P Great designs

@DarthDan

I reckon they'll try and time the final two books and season very closely together. Honestly wouldn't be surprised if Book 6 was maybe mostly done and they're holding off, release it closer to the show, save spoilers....
DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 8:34 AM
Jamie NEVER raped Cersei. They had sex in the room with Jeoffry, but it was consensual.
charlie2094 - 4/24/2014, 8:34 AM
@Tevii

In the books the scene was a bit more consensual
Tevii - 4/24/2014, 8:36 AM
Hmm. I wonder why they felt compelled to make it a rape scene then. Having sex right next to your dead son's body is dramatic and sick enough for the scene, there really isnt a reason to add to it.
DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 8:39 AM
@Charlie
At the pace we're going, they'll run out of source material in 2 seasons.. With A Feast for Crows and Dance with Dragons occurring at the same time, thats a LOT of story to tell, but not much in the way of plot advancement..

DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 8:39 AM
Exactly Tevii
charlie2094 - 4/24/2014, 8:42 AM
@Dan

I do agree, don't want Feast or Dragons stretched out too long, Season 5 should cover the majority of it, hopefully. Where I think the show could improve on the books, telling them both together and shorter. Hoping, that maybe Book 6 gets published next year, and Book 7 just before the final season...possible, hopefully :P

Imagine with how big the show has gotten now, they want to try and avoid spoilers so do think they'll really try to time them as closely as they can

I agree with DarthDan. Cersei was only protesting that "it's not right" that she and Jamie have sex next to their dead kid. And this was after she made the first move with the goal of manipulating him into killing Tyrion. She's trying to play him with the only card she has left to play.
Carl - 4/24/2014, 8:49 AM
hes done both books hes just in the editing process

Wanna know why the [frick] Dany's hair is [frick]ing blond now.

Serious guys. Take a look at her hair in s01ep01 and then compare it to now.

Isn't Targaryens supposed to have Silver hair? And I'm not complaining about it's lack of faithfullness to the source material, but the TV's incoherent changes.

Watching Joffrey die was indeed beautiful.
Klone - 4/24/2014, 9:04 AM
@BatManiac

I know, really sexy stuff.



:P

Someday I'm going to buy each and every one of these prints and dedicate an entire room to showing them off. Awesome stuff, especially the Joffrey death one.
DarthDan - 4/24/2014, 9:50 AM
HELL YEAH Bane!!
Klone - 4/24/2014, 9:54 AM
Wait, how come in the description for this season it calls the White Walkers "undead" when they are only a mythical, living race like giants?
SauronsBANE - 4/24/2014, 10:02 AM
People keep confusing the White Walkers with Wights MAK. White Walkers are those mythical creatures, the Wights are basically zombies: dead bodies that the Walkers reanimated and become part of their army now. Not sure why some people find that so hard to keep track of haha
NoPhucksGiven - 4/24/2014, 10:06 AM
these are dope.
Bloodraven - 4/24/2014, 10:20 AM
That Joffrey one is awesome. I love the way the wine looks like hands choking him.
Klone - 4/24/2014, 10:25 AM
@Sauron

I know, I simply fail to understand why everyone calls them zombies or thinks they are undead given that Wights and Walkers look nothing alike.
