We’ve nearly made it through the long wait for new Doctor Who, but how in the world will we be able to wait until the fourth season of Game of Thrones? If past seasons are any indication, we won’t be seeing Westeros again until the end of March or beginning of April.
Never fear, however. SciFiMafia.com has searched the internet for featurettes about the beloved HBO series, and we have three for your viewing pleasure today.
First is part of a featurette from the Blu-ray/DVD set of Game of Thrones Season 3, which won’t be available until February 18, 2014 (scroll to the end of this article for the link to preorder). It’s a featurette on the most talked-about scene of the season. You know.

In the third season of the hit HBO drama series Game of Thrones, the Lannisters are barely holding onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, while stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark, King in the North, is facing major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters while beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen - reunited with her three fast-maturing dragons - attempts to raise an army to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually claiming the Iron Throne.
