HBO has released a couple of featurettes that center around the most recent episode of Game of Thrones (read Allison’s recap here). While the network regularly posts such featurettes after the most recent episodes of some of their shows, these two are of particular interest given the surprising turn of events that occurred in “The Rains of Castamere.” We see series creators/showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff discuss the episode and how the corresponding chapter in the book was one of the main reasons they wanted to turn Game of Thrones into a TV series in the first place, and we also see them talk about the emotional impact of actually filming the episode.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer, but beware of major spoilers for “The Rains of Castamere,” obviously. The season finale of Game of Thrones airs on HBO this coming Sunday, June 9th.
