New Game of Thrones trailer hints at Tyrion and Daenerys alliance
Will the Dragon and the (estranged) Lion join forces? It looks like it!
HBO have released the official trailer for the upcoming series on Game of Thrones and it’s full of hints as to what will happen to each character following the explosive events of the series four finale.
First, there’s Tyrion. Smuggled out of Kings Landing at the end of the last series (but not before shooting his daddy with a crossbow) after being found wrongly guilty of the death of his evil nephew, we get a hint of what might be in store for his future – and it looks like the long awaited converging of storylines where Tyrion visits aspiring Queen Daenerys Targaryen is finally in sight. Will his brains and cunning help her take over Westeros? Or maybe just get there? Meanwhile, Tyrion’s sister Cersei is none-too-pleased about his escape – who will she turn her hatred towards now?
Then there’s Sansa, who last series lied in favour of puppet-master Littlefinger. Better the devil you know, eh? He’s now muttering revenge in her ear.
Jon Snow does some impressive standing about looking epic in the trailer, since he’s now a leading figure in the Night’s Watch, after a remarkably short tenure as a steward. Last series he led the defence of Castle Black at the Battle of Castle Black and then single-handedly tried to assassinate the Wildling leader Mance Rayder on his own turf, so one would hope Jon gets an easier time of it this series. Yeah, probably not.
We also catch a brief glimpse of teen-runaway Arya stroking her sword, Needle, lovingly. What’s in store for her after leaving Westeros? We can’t wait!
