Game of Thrones: George R.R. Martin teases big battle scene

There are only two episodes left of the epic fourth season that Game of Thrones has offered up to the world. So far we’ve seen perhaps the most devestating season to date, and that’s saying a lot given everything we’ve had to endure throughout the show’s run.

On his personal blog titled ‘Not A Blog’, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin teases the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones by saying fans should  be very afraid of the upcoming episode and what might happen.

Neil Marshall returns, with a battle even bigger than “Blackwater.”  Should rival or surpass any battle ever seen before on television.

Keep your swords sharp.

And be afraid.  Be very afraid.

(No, I haven’t seen the episode yet).

Marshall has directed a Game of Thrones episode in the past with the most intense of the two being Blackwater, the season three episode that showed off one of the most impressive television battle scenes we’ve ever seen. That’s part of what has helped establish Game of Thrones as one of the best shows on TV and Marshall clearly has a knack for tapping into the best of what the show has to offer.

Tomorrow night’s penultimate episode will no doubt be intense, and the eye-popping episode is it following up means that the bar has been set high for Marshall.
