The new Game of Thrones season 5 trailer just leaked and I'm beyond excited to share this with you guys! It seems like many ages have passed since the skull-crushingly glorious excesses of Season 4... check out what's about to go down in King's Landing and beyond...
(Sorry the quality is a bit crappy, but that's the price we pay for watching this awesome footage so early, folks!)
CERSEI & JAIME
Cersei's rare flickers of humanity come when discussing her children, and her grief for Joff is palpable here. Soon, that sadness will turn to murderous rage, you can be sure of it... and what is that snake thing? Is Cersei making her own horcruxes now (heh heh)?
Choice quote: [of Tyrion] "That little monster is out there somewhere, drawing breath."
LITTLEFINGER & SANSA
Choice quote: "There’s no justice in this world...not unless we make it. Avenge them."
Hell yes, Sansa. Take the power back! Also, ew, ew, ew, Littlefinger, you're so old and you were in love with her mom!
TYRION & VARYS
Greatest lines of the whole damn trailer? This interchange between my two favorite schemers:
Varys: The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name.
Tyrion: Good luck finding him.
Varys: Who said anything about ‘him'?
GET IN! Also, totally made me think of this meme...
Margaery Tyrell has wedding number three. Smile while you can, Tommen; bad things tend to happen to people who marry Margaery.
Gettin' her boobs out and burning things, as usual. She may be an entirely deranged megalomaniac but you gotta admit - Melisandre is always right...
Jorah turns Gladiator - let's hope this old war horse can not only survive, but win back Dany's favor...
Who's this tough old bird threatening now? Please let it be Cersei!
Choice quote: "They'll never even find what's left of you."
THE MEN IN THE GOLD MASKS
You know there's trouble when a whole bunch of dudes in creepy gold masks are marching around smashing things...
Arya has grown about a foot in her voyage to Braavos, apparently. Also, is that the House of Black and White she's approaching?
Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed hardman is back, and unsheathing his massive, hungry sword (oo-er, missus!) in characteristic Bronn fashion.
GREY WORM & MISSANDEI
... sittin' in Meereen, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
Hopefully, Dany will be relieved of her boring matters of state and get back to some dragon-charging, blood-spurting.
Choice quote: "I’m not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel."
Remember the lovely Red Viper? Well, he's got a host of sexy bastard daughters known as the 'Sand Snakes' - and this whip-crackin' beauty is one of 'em (I think).
A young blonde woman slices her thumb and squeezes out a drop of blood - possibly Cersei's exiled daughter, Myrcella? She's been sent to Dorne, remember, and a lot of the action is gonna take place there...
Here's the whole, wonderful trailer!
Game of Thrones returns April 12, and I can't bloody wait!
What did I miss? Please share anything you caught in the trailer!
