Shown for a second in the most recent trailer released, there’s a live bear that someone has to fight.  Enough said.


7. Alan Taylor get’s swapped

Since Alan Taylor, one of the main directors of the show, didn’t direct any episodes for Season 3 due to him directing the new Thor movie, Daniel Minahan stepped in for a few episodes. He directed EP. 6, 7 & 8 in Season 1. His credits also include Six Feet Under, Deadwood, & True Blood, just to name a few. This gets me all warm inside.

You've waited almost a year, you have every right to share this!
