It took most of the week for viewers to get over the brutal death of Oberyn Martell at the hands of The Mountain. Sales of Tomato Soup and red Jello saw all time lows this past week. Anything red and viscous would only serve to remind Game of Thrones fans about the brutal way that the show killed on of its coolest characters. As we all saw last week, Oberyn gloated a bit too much over the prone Mountain, and paid for his arrogance with his life. With only two episodes left in season 4, it is hard to see a normal show topping that shocking moment. Of course this isn’t a normal show.
Tonight’s all new episode, titled The Watchers on the Wall, is boasting battle scenes on a level we’ve never seen before on the show. The episode title refers to the men of the Night’s Watch. Tonight the Wildings led by Tormund and Ygritte finally make their frontal attack on the Wall. It’s an attack that Jon Snow has been trying to warn the others about since his return to Castle Black, yet his pleas have fallen on death ears. Any character is vulnerable, as we’ve come to know and love. Could the men of the Night’s Watch deaf ear to Jon cost someone’s life? The episode description from HBO is perfectly ominous.
Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch face a big challenge.
A big challenge? Like winning a build your own robot competition? Like winning this season of The Voice? The promo for tonight’s episode is full of dark battle scenes. It’s going to be a doozy tonight.
