Game of Thrones FX Team Teases Major Season 3 EPIC Battle

*MAJOR BOOK and potential TV Series SPOILERS AHEAD*


If there is one thing I'm really looking forward too as a major A Song of Ice and Fire fan is the third book's (A Storm of Swords)  EPIC battle sequence between two extremely fascinating characters: namely The Hound, aka Sandor Clegane, wonderfully played by the always awesome Rory McCann and Beric Dondarrion played by newcomer Richard Dormer.

So imagine my excitement when the FX team had this to say about the scene which includes Dondarrion's flaming sword:
Technically speaking, the flaming sword was definitely a process, in terms of getting it to work. We have these amazing stunt guys and CC Smiff who is a Sword Master, swings the swords so fast it takes a lot not to get the flame to go out. Laurence Harvey in the workshop turned this bit of aluminium into this flaming sword that ignites from nothing. It’s amazing. I think more than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing that fight scene play out.
So I'm really, really looking forward to that scene. You can have a nice little preview of sorts here:

New Awesome Game of Thrones season 3 Teaser Poster Teases A Storm of Swords

HBO has finally released its very first teaser poster for the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones. At first glance, there's nothing much to see, it's a simple poster. However look closely.

I love LOVE the three swords that signal the third season. It also harks back to the third book's title, A Storm of Swords.

What do you think?
