If someone tries to tell you there's going to be a secret Game of Thrones episode in February, tell them to relax; it's only a look behind the lens. There should (theoretically) be no dragons present.
On February 8th, HBO will air a behind the scenes special called "Game of Thrones: a Day in the Life." The half-hour special will take you through a single day of filming season five on three different sets in Ireland, Croatia, and Spain. The special will highlight the cast, sets, and production, but should give us a glimpse of what's coming later this spring in season five.
Apparent mega-nerd and dedicated Thrones fan _honeybird recently traveled to the Cushing Library at Texas A&M which houses a collection of Gerorge RR Martin's work, including the original manuscript for A Dance With Dragons. The manuscript is filled with notes between GRRM and his editor, including one on the topic of Coldhands' identity. His editor asks whether or not Coldhands is actually a particular uncle that most everyone seems to think he is, and Martin gives a definitive answer. Want that answer? Click here.
