Game of Thrones Season 4

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.

Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel after the jump. 

The Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel was posted to YouTube. Yes, it’s a different video from the one we posted last summer. Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up. And whether or not you’re caught up, be warned that the very end of the movie might cause you to swoon.

Nothing to ruin a badass strut like a stumble down the stairs, huh? It’s nice to see these people laugh and smile, even if they’re only doing it out of character. Vying for power in a medieval fantasy version of Europe is a very frown-heavy pastime, especially when someone else you know seems to die every five minutes.

But the real star of this video is Ser Pounce, who had but one appearance last season. Probably because he’s “a bit of a diva,” according to actress Natalie Dormer. “He didn’t want to stay on the bed, he was very difficult to work with,” she recalled. Pretty sure anyone who’s ever owned a cat could’ve told them that was gonna happen.

Game of Thrones Season 5 kicks off April 12. No doubt it’ll provide plenty of material for another blooper reel.
