“I’ve just finished reading [the Season 4 scripts] and I genuinely think it’s my favorite one so far,” Harington told the LA Times at San Diego Comic-Con. ”And that sounds like I’m pulling your leg. I’m not. I’m not doing the actor thing of saying ‘each season is brilliant’ because I have to. I think it’s a really powerful season. It’s very action-filled. Last season was a big impact season, this season is very action-packed. On paper it looks incredible, whether we can pull it off, who ... knows!”
Season 3 was indeed big on impact, especially when it came to the season's penultimate episode, "The Red Wedding." Although it featured the deaths of a number of major characters including Robb (Richard Madden) and Catelyn tark (Michelle Fairley), Jon Snow got out alive ... and it could be because he bribed writer George R.R. Martin.
"You have to be really nice to George when you see him, in case he writes you the worst death ever," Harington joked on Huffpost Live earlier this year.
"Game Of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO in 2014.
