We’re now only weeks away from the April 6 premiere of Season 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ — and HBO’s latest trailer is its most tantalizing offering yet. From the debut of the mysterious new character Oberyn Martell to some pretty gigantic dragons, check out all of the heart-pumping action below!
Game of Thrones is always thrilling, but the show’s latest trailer promises a world of hell breaking loose come April 6. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) isn’t exaggerating when he says that the entire world fell apart during his time north of The Wall — and from the looks of things, it won’t be glued back together anytime soon.
‘Game Of Thrones’: New Trailer Revealed
Westeros — particularly King’s Landing — is a giant pressure cooker right now, and this latest trailer makes it clear that the boiling point is well on its way.
“Do you know what they did to my brother?” the still-captive Sansa (Sophie Turner) asks an understandably guilty-looking Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) at the beginning of the trailer. “I lie awake all night thinking about how they died.”
Sansa’s family was ripped to shreds at the end of Season 3 — and her sister Arya (Maisie Williams) is still surveying the wreckage with The Hound (Rory McCann) when things pick up — but at least the Lannisters are having some issues, too. All Tyrell distrust aside, the reigning family will experience a whole new level of threat when newcomer Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) shows up with a pretty wicked score to settle.
And there’s also the permanently treacherous Littlefinger, who shows up in the trailer with this gem:
“Always keep your foes confused,” he says. “If they don’t know who you are or what you want, they can’t know what you plan to do next.”
Ooh, I wonder what he’s talking about! (Fellow book readers beware — spoiler-y comments WILL be deleted!)
Of course, this being Game of Thrones, the show’s de facto star Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) also appears in the trailer — with some seriously ginormous dragons and a giant chip on her shoulder when it comes to her status as a leader.
“I will answer injustice with justice,” she growls at her companion Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), when he dares to suggest some leniency.
Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 6 on HBO. In the meantime, check out the new trailer, freak out accordingly, and leave your thoughts and theories in the comments!
