Game Of Thrones season 4: new episode titles and synopses
HBO has released the titles and plot synopses of Game Of Thrones' final season four episodes...
Game Of Thrones's fourth season will take a one-week break after next week's episode seven, Mockingbird, so we and our US chums need to find something else to occupy us for an hour on the evenings of Sunday the 25th/Monday the 26th of May.
Season four returns to HBO for the first of its final three episodes on the 1st of June, and by the looks of its title, it's going to be a biggie. Episode eight, The Mountain And The Viper comes directed by established Thrones director, Alex Graves, and, like all of season four's remaining episodes, written by showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. The official synopsis is as follows: "Unexpected visitors arrive in Mole's Town; Littlefinger's motives are questioned; Ramsay tries to prove himself to his father; Tyrion's fate is decided."
Following that on Sunday the 8th of June is The Watchers On The Wall, directed by none other than Neil Marshall, who helmed season two's stunning Blackwater. The synopsis for that episode is short and sweet: "Jon Snow and the Night's Watch face a big challenge". We'd wager it's not a burst pipe, that challenge.
Then finally on Sunday the 15th of June comes The Children, directed once again by Alex Graves, in which, "Circumstances change after an unexpected arrival from north of the Wall; Dany must face harsh realities; Bran learns more about his destiny; Tyrion sees the truth about his situation."
And then, just like that, Game Of Thrones season four will be gone.
