‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 FX Reel: Relive the Wall Attack, Crushed Skulls and More

Game of Thrones‘ season 4 has come and gone with Sunday’s finale event “The Children,” and while debate still rages if the HBO fantasy drama’s 2014 run proved on par with its predecessors, there’s no denying it’ll be a long wait until 2015. While we wait, check out an FX breakdown of some of the bigger scenes from the season, including the “Watchers on the Wall” attack on Castle Black, and the skull-crushing duel between “The Mountain and the Viper“!

UPDATE #3: The videos were taken down from Vimeo on request from HBO. We’ll update when official version are released.

UPDATE #2: The original video has since been made password protected. We have replaced it with a shorter version until the full version returns online.

UPDATE #1: Both videos are now password protected, but typing in “got” seems to bring down that wall. Seriously.

From ‘Game of Thrones’ composite artist Calvin Romeyn, the new behind-the-scenes look at ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 also offers new insight into – SPOILER ALERT! – King Joffrey’s untimely poisoning from “The Lion and the Rose,” which needed more than a few effects to Jack Gleeson’s face for the gruesome shade of purple on his choking face. Lest we forget, there are also some wonderfully flayed bodies, and even a pre-viz look at the mound of flesh that would become Prince Oberyn’s caved-in head.

It’s only going to get better from here, as showrunner David Benioff recently teased some complicated scenes ahead in season 5, saying “There are a few sequences that are absolutely terrifying from a production standpoint.”

While we wait for the latest on ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 (and hopefully gather some new intel from Comic-Con 2014), check out the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 FX reels above and below, and tell us what supernatural sights you want to see brought to life with the next run of episodes in 2015!
