The fourth season of Game of Thrones will kick off Sunday night, picking up where the HBO medieval fantasy series left off last summer in the ongoing battle between the Seven Kingdoms.

Game of Thrones Spoilers

One of the most – if not the most – shocking scene in all of Game of Thrones was the infamous Red Wedding, which occurred in the show’s penultimate episode of Season 3. Caitlyn (Michelle Fairley), Robb (Richard Madden) and his wife were all killed in the aftermath of Edmure’s (Tobias Menzies) wedding to one of the Frey daughters. Spoilers promise more deaths to come.

"Not sure if this is worth celebrating, but here goes nothing: the Red Wedding was just the tip of the iceberg, so steel yourselves now for more hard losses.” Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton) told E! Online. "There's a huge power shift certainly in season four and going into season five. It should be exciting. Nobody is safe on Game of Thrones…no character is too big to die.'"

One character who might do some killing – or be killed – is The Red Viper, played by Pedro Pascal. "[He's] definitely punk rock," Pascal described his character to TVLine. "He's like, 'Live life to the fullest, suck the marrow, play hard, love hard, hate hard.'"

The Red Viper hates the Lannisters and hates Ser Gregor Clegane, who killed his sister Elia Martell during the overthrow of Mad King Aerys. Since his “focus is so specific” in King’s Landing, he “doesn’t waste any time” before looking to seek justice.

The Purple Wedding

Joffrey’s much-awaited wedding to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) is finally upon us this season. Jack Gleeson, who plays the boy king, dubbed his character the “ultimate bridezilla” and added, “It’s all about him. It’s not about Margaery,” he reveals to Entertainment Weekly. “I’m sure he’s thrown many hissy fits at different designers. He likes being seen and the glamor and pomp and ceremony.”

Game of Thrones’ fourth season premiere on HBO Sunday, April 6 at 9/8c.
