‘Game of Thrones’

Several cast members of this massively popular fantasy series noted in a recent interview that the upcoming season is going to be “dark.” As if the now infamous season three “Red Wedding” episode wasn’t enough, the upcoming darkness will include more treachery, murder and dragons (oh, my!) . Season four premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday, April 6, on HBO (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
