A new, official Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer is here, and it contains all of the stabbing, slashing, hacking, slashing and stabbing you’d expect. It begins with Daenerys vowing to “break the wheel” of Throne-Game playing royals as she rises to power, and considering she’s bringing dragons to a sword fight, it seems entirely possible. George R. R. Martin warned earlier in the year that season 5 of Game of Thrones would see characters killed onscreen that he hadn’t gotten around to killing yet in the books, so this season is set to be a bit more unpredictable, even for fans who’ve already read up through A Dance With Dragons. Now we can all look forward to this year’s “Red Wedding” or “Mountain and the Viper” moment that will be too horrific and traumatizing to make for appropriate water cooler conversation at work the next morning.
Game of Thrones season 5 is coming in April, just in time for winter here in the real world to finally maybe be pretty close to being over.
