How GAME OF THRONES Evokes Such Strong Emotional Responses From Its Audience

In a brand new episode of Lessons From the Screenplay, host Michael Tucker dives into the narrative storytelling styles of Game of Thrones, specifically concentrating on last year's hugely popular battle episode "The Battle of the Bastards." He details how showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss attempt to occasionally buck expectations, particularly in the use of the "rule of three" when it comes to Rickon's death and even going as far as to pinpoint specific music cues that lead us to believe something might happen on screen. With Game of Thrones finally returning this weekend, this is a good way to ease back into the show.
