Season 4, which will be roughly following the second half of A Storm of Swords, is going to be -what I call- absolutely glorious. If this mere one minute and 44-second trailer is anything to go by, the season will be jam-packed with everything both readers of the book series and loyal fans of the show will appreciate. The trailer gives us a glimpse into almost all of the characters we’ve come to love….and hate, with a new face (brand new character for non-readers) to behold who we’re sure you’ll love.
The shadow of a dragon over a city, Drogon? Joffrey whining to Jaime about his ‘winning’ of the War of the Five Kings- scoff- and images of slaughter, and a proud Daenerys flashes up as Jaime responds “The war’s not won.”
Ser Jorah’s voice counseling Dany, no doubt, that “It’s tempting to see your enemies as evil, but there’s good and evil on both sides in every war ever fought.” Before her…response?
“They have a choice, they can live in my new world, or they can die in their old one.” At least with Dany, who is “but a young girl and know[s] little of the ways of war” is far more cunning than Joffrey could ever be.
Asha! I mean Yara in a longboat there. I am mighty excited for Kingsmoot. If that occurs here, you never know with the TV show.
Things are a bit tense for Tyrion, oh but I wonder why? I look forward to the purple wedding so much, what I don’t look forward to is the aftermath for a few of my favourite characters.
We see some Jon Snow and *tear* Ygritte, as Jon’s voice warns that “if the wildlings breach the wall” it’ll be hell. Which, according to Melisandre is what they’re already living.
I’m glad to see Arya, my favourite Stark, who’s still traveling with the Hound.
“If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.” Tyrion’s words, which I can only imagine are meant for Oberyn Martell, aka the Red Viper. Dear epic greatness am I excited about meeting the Martells. ‘Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.’
