HBO's "Game of Thrones" is a wild show filled with copious amounts of action, murder, lust and vengeance. The first full-length trailer for the show's next season was leaked online, and it promises even more madness coming to the lands of Westeros and Essos. It's now been officially released on the show's Facebook page and you can watch it above.
The trailer was exclusively shown to those who ventured out to movie theaters to watch the final two episodes of Season 4 in IMAX on Thursday night, but because everyone has a powerful video camera in his or her pocket nowadays, some risk-takers posted pirated footage to YouTube. And while the leaked videos will probably be taken down faster than you can toss back that bottle of , the official video from HBO has now debuted.
There's a lot of information to digest from the trailer. In one key scene, Littlefinger tells an emotional Sansa Stark that "there is no justice in this world, not unless we make it. Avenge them."
In another, Daenerys Targaryen boldly proclaims that she's not going to stop the wheel, but is going to break the wheel altogether (the wheel? What wheel?) But perhaps the most interesting exchange is between Lord Varys and Tyrion Lannister. Varys suggests that the Seven Kingdoms need a ruler who is loved by millions and has both a powerful army and the right family name.
"Good luck finding him," Tyrion quips. "Who said anything about him?" Varys responds, suggesting that a certain Mother of Dragons might be the one to emerge as the ruler of Westeros. The comments on the YouTube video and the Facebook page naturally contain spoilers from those who've read all five ofto date, so peruse the comments at your discretion as you anxiously await the debut of Season 5 of the cable series on April 12.
Only a few more months until the next season, "Game of Thrones" fans. We just need to wait for winter to finally go away before our beloved series comes back to HBO.
