Game of Thrones is more than a show; it’s a cultural phenomenon. The HBO fantasy drama manages to make the complicated politics of a fictional world completely interesting with the help of a stellar cast, CGI dragons and a lot of nudity. Season 4 of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 6, and to drum up anticipation, we’ve archived all the nude scenes over the last three seasons into a handy guide. How many of these characters were naked for a good reason and how many stripped down just to distract you while someone else gave all the complicated exposition? And when was it both?
When you tune in to an HBO program, you know that you’re not only going to get to watch an incredibly well-written show, but you’re also going to see a lot of crazy sex and unnecessary nudity. We’re not complaining about this, but it is interesting how Game of Thrones uses nude scenes to spice up what might be otherwise boring scenes where one character gives dry backstory. Of course, not all the nude scenes on Game of Thrones are there for no good reason. Some are there to show young couples in the throes of passion or because someone needed to give birth to a shadow monster.
In the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. But you also get naked.
