Blood and sex are a sort of HBO-Trademark we find now in all their TV shows. Game of Thrones is one among many. The show became famous for its bloody and sex scenes but also for the killing of numerous characters including some majors.
Exactly like in the novels written by George R.R. Martin, the show killed several people. From battlefields to memorable scenes like the Red Wedding, from an unnamed soldier to Ned Stark, the producers decided to pay a tribute to all them via an “In memoriam” video revealed at the Comic-Con. Even if the tone sounds at first formal and sad, it’s obvious HBO is making some fun of its long list of dead when including “Old Dude” or “Baratheon Soldiers #43-58” in the list.
The show will return in 2014, certainly March, for a 4th season on HBO.
