Epic New GAME OF THRONES Season 3 Trailer is Epic

Winter is coming...back.

Late last night, HBO finally released the full Season 3 trailer for their hit series Game of Thrones, based on the popular "A Song of Ice and Fire" fantasy saga by George R.R. Martin.  The trailer teases everything you hoped it would and makes the wait for the third season's debut on March 31, 2013 at 9 p.m. EST feel even farther away.

"It's been a long time, my old friends..." begins Lord Varys, "The Spider," as new character Tormund Giantsbane scales The Wall with pick axes.  The song "Bones" by MS MR begins to play while the sorceress Melissandre says that "Death is coming for everyone and everything."  We see Robb and Catelyn Stark surveying the death of destruction of Winterfell and young Bran Stark being more proficient as an archer.

A quick shot follows of new character Beric Dondarrian, "The Lightning Lord," while Daenerys Targaryen surveys her new army of soldiers.  Catelyn says "Show them how it feels to lose what they love," and Rome's CiarĂ¡n Hinds debuts as Mance Rayder, the "King Beyond The Wall," who proclaims, "I'm going to light the biggest fire the North has ever seen!"

We then see a glimpse of The Hound's trial and everyone's favorite person to slap, King Joffrey Baratheon, tells his uncle Tyron Lannister and grandfather Tywin that "Everyone is mine to torment."  "There's a beast in every man," says Ser Jorah Mormont, "and it stirs when you put a sword in his hand."  Quick shots of Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister are shown, followed by a stellar shot of one of Daerneys' dragons, now grown considerably larger, following her sailing vessel.

Finally, we hear another omnious voiceover from Varys, who remarks, "The revenge you want will be yours in time...."

You can view the trailer below, thanks to the Game of Thrones YouTube account...


  1. Dany's dragons are not flying yet. That's a mistake.

  2. Tracie, maybe the flying dragon takes place in a dream sequence? Or maybe George R.R. Martin approved the change for television?
