PREVIEW: HBO Sunday Night Soap GAME OF THRONES ("Blackwater")

HBO is airing the next GAMES OF THRONES episode on Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. ET.

In "Blackwater," a massive battle rages for control of King's Landing and the Iron Throne.

Entertainment Weekly spoke with the show's producers, David Benioff and Dan Weiss about the upcoming episode last summer, and they revealed a little about the creation of the second season's climax.

"The Blackwater [battle scene] was so much fun," says Weiss. "I mean, it was miserable. Forty-two degrees and raining and mud up to your ankles."

Benioff adds, "This whole story of Blackwater goes back to the first season because we were supposed to have that battle with Tyrion and we ended up not able to shoot it. And so we had him go down to friendly fire early. We always promised ourselves, we’re gonna have our major battle."

"We always wanted to do it and we didn’t know if we’d be able to pull it off," says Weiss.

Created and executive produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the ten-episode second season of GAME OF THRONES plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter 0 the season of the white raven. In King's Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King.
