Neil Marshall to Helm Another Episode Nine for Fourth Season of ‘Game of Thrones’

Director helmed 'Blackwater' episode in second season

HBO and “Game of Thrones” are making it clear that it is not necessarily the finale of the season that will have everyone talking but the next-to-last episode, and it looks like they are preparing to follow through in the upcoming fourth season.

“Centurion” director Neil Marshall, who helmed the “Blackwater” episode 9 in the second season, is returning to helm episode nine for season four.

The “Blackwater” episode involved the battle for King’s Landing and was considered one of the biggest set pieces yet.

It’s unknown where in the story the episode would be set, but given Marshall’s reputation for pulling off huge set pieces, it’s possible it would revolve around (SPOILER ALERT!) the Battle of Castle Black at “The Wall.”

Besides the battle for Kings Landing in season 2, the first season’s ninth episode involved the beheading of Ned Stark and this year featured the infamous “Red Wedding” — one of the most talked-about moments of any show all season.

Season four is currently filming. Empire Magazine broke the news.

Marshall, who is repped by Resolution, Independent Talent Group and Principato-Young Entertainment, recently finished helming the pilot to the Starz series “Black Sails.”
