Episode 4 of "Game Of Thrones" is going to be a big one.

The episode, titled "And Now His Watch Is Ended," will see the first truly epic moment of the show's third season. Fans of George R.R. Martin's book franchise, on which the HBO series is based, might know what's coming in, but here's what showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff told reporters during a conference call before the Season 3 premiere.

"We always knew it was going to be one of the big ones," Weiss said (via The Hollywood Reporter). "That was one of the scenes I remember reading it for the first time in the books and being so swept away by it. I remember thinking [that] if we could ever get this to series and we could ever get to season three, we'd actually be able to put that scene on screen."

Here's how HBO describes "And Now His Watch Is Ended," the fourth episode of "Game Of Thrones" Season 3:

The Night’s Watch takes stock. Varys meets his better. Arya is taken to the commander of the Brotherhood. Daenerys exchanges a chain for a whip.

As for Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell, played by Natalie Dormer, the actress recently told TV Guide, "The Tyrells have come and arrived at King's Landing, underestimating the situation. They think that they can control the Lannisters and can take them on. They're going to get a nasty shock." But, she added, Margaery still shouldn't be discounted." Margaery is not safe," Dormer told TV Guide. "She's trying to work out what makes Joffrey tick because if she can work out what makes Joffrey tick, she can control him. And not just control him in a nasty, manipulative way, but control him for the better of the kingdom."
