HBO has released an “Inside the Episode” look at the Game of Thrones episode “The Lion and the Rose.”
The video talks a bit about Stannis’ burnings at Dragonstone and Bran’s visions in the North, but mostly focuses on the royal wedding, which the producers say was one of the most unique scenes they’ve shot so far.
“The scene as a whole is one of the most challenging sequences we’ve ever done,” said co-producer D.B. Weiss, “because it involves more of our principal characters than we’ve ever had together in the same place before. Maybe more than we’ll ever have together again.”
Of course, it’s all centered on Joffrey since it’s both his wedding and where he meets his final fate.
“We wanted very much,” said Weiss, “to have the whole sequence leading up to Joffrey’s demise tell us, one last time, who Joffrey is.”
