'Game Of Thrones' Kills It At San Diego Comic-Con
The Red Wedding still looms large as actors Richard Madden, Michelle Fairley and others eulogized the key scene at Comic-Con.

San Diego Comic-Con was dark and full of terrors on Friday afternoon, thanks to the "Game of Thrones" panel. Death was very much on the mind for Hall H attendees, as the panel began with an in memoriam video set to Boyz II Men's "Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" -- an appropriate way to lead in to a conversation about season three's controversial Red Wedding episode.
Gone from the show but not from fandom, actors Richard Madden and Michelle Fairley were on hand to eulogize their "Game of Thrones" characters' deaths. And even with winter coming, Madden received quite the warm welcome, walking out to chants of "The King in the North! The King in the North!" Indeed, it was revealed that "The North Remembers" is a key phrase going into season four, premiering sometime in 2014.
