Most blooper reels at this point are just standard fodder to made to pad out Blu-ray Disc extras. But when you have a show as epic and dour as “Game of Thrones,” that blooper reel becomes something special.

Witness Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) all lose their shit as they try to maintain the show’s grim tone. You’ll never be scared of White Walkers again.

The blooper reel for season four was the first for “Game of Thrones,” according to Entertainment Weekly, shown at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, which is happening right now. Showrunners also announced at Comic-Con the addition of veteran actor Jonathan Pryce and Oscar-nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes to the cast for season five, among others. And if you’ve read the books, you can do the rest of us a favor and shut up right now about who they’ll be playing and what that means.
