Winter is dark and full of far too few teasers for Game of Thrones. While we wait for April 12 to come around, HBO is slowly but surely recognizing our Westeros drought. On Sunday, they aired a fascinating behind-the-scenes special, Game of Thrones Season 5: A Day in the Life. The 30-minute documentary follows the show's two units during a single day of shooting in three different countries.

In between learning cool tidbits about what it's like to film the world's favorite fantasy show (e.g. extras sometimes get turned away for not looking dirty and disheveled enough), we caught amazing previews of the season's most-anticipated fight scenes. Take a look at our favorite moments!

    Vanity Fair speculates shots like these might point at Jorah's upcoming death, but we're not so sure. Game of Thrones seems far too clever to release such a blatant hint if that were true...UNLESS that's exactly what they want us to think. Hmm.

    Which was all for the best because this is how she reacts to a bad scene.

    To be fair, a crew member had just instructed her to growl.

    It is known Lena Headey is way more fun to be around than Cersei Lannister.

The full documentary is seriously worth a watch. If you've got a spare half hour, check it out!
