According to the Game of Thrones wiki, the ninth episode of season four will be titled “Castle Black.”
So far, the ninth episode of every season of the show has heralded a huge WTF moment, from Ned’s beheading, to the battle of Blackwater, to the worst wedding in the history of ever.
The episode will be helmed by director Neil Marshall, who also directed “Blackwater” in season two. Marshall is promising a lot of action in the episode, saying “There’s a lot of very physical action and a lot of fighting—sword fights and physical fights. We pack quite a lot of stuff in there.” (Here’s more from the interview—beware of mild spoilers!)
Book readers know what exactly what Castle Black means in this context, but do you think the series will sneak in another castle-related jaw-dropper?
