Game of Thrones season four is almost here, and not only have all the trailers gotten us excited, but also, the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly promises something big: pain. Joffrey is, of course, smiling over the word, and inside the article, more deaths than ever are promised. Show-runner David Benioff said, "It's just more intense than it ever has been. . . . There's just no relaxing this season. If we can pull this off, it will top season three." Rose Leslie, who plays Jon's scorned ex Ygritte, offered, "Particularly this season, and absolutely with Ygritte, there are so many characters out for blood."
Could season four top the Red Wedding? Shudder.
