HBO really knows how to get our heart racing. Each Game of Thrones trailer has progressively intensified, and the final of the three trailers was so sharp we may have screamed aloud, "A MONTH? A WHOLE DAMN MONTH?"
April 1st suddenly seems like a year away when HBO parcels out a tight trailer wrought with tension and strife set to "Seven Devils" by Florence and the Machine. "Sometimes I wonder if this is the price for what we've done, for our sins," Queen Cersei admits to her brother Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion, not short on cold remarks replies: "The day will come when your joy will turn to ashes and you will know the debt is paid."
We see Daenerys Targaryen attempting to assemble a larger army and Jamie Lannister being held prisoner by Robb Stark, telling the new king "Three victories don't make you a conqueror." Joffrey is still torturing his young wife-to-be Sansa Stark, while the younger Stark sister is coming to grips with the grim situation at hand. "Anyone can be killed," Arya says at the end of the clip.
Her bleak words gave us a chill. Anyone else?
