A huge chunk of the cast and crew of HBO's Game of Thrones hit San Deigo Comic-Con last week, and somehow none of them were beheaded.
Right on the heels of the show grabbing a huge number of Emmy nominations, series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, author and executive producer George R.R. Martin and stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Richard Madden (Robb), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Kit Harington (Jon), Rose Leslie (Ygritte) and John Bradley (Sam) gathered Friday for a panel covering all things Thrones. Topics included the infamous Red Wedding and how the actors prepared for it, how characters like Dany and Ygritte grew throughout the season, which actors are reading the books and which aren't, and where season four is headed. Plus, a special guest returns from the dead.
Check out the whole panel above, but obviously beware of season-three SPOILERS.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2014.
