“Everyone is poor and powerless, yet we can overthrow an empire,” says High Sparrow.
That’s about the jist of it. As the full trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones season is finally released (SQUEALS!) it opens pretty damn solemn.
Backed by a haunting rendition of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Games’, it begins by scanning in on Jon Snow lying in the snow, before saying “He’s gone”. Yeah, yeah, don’t believe it. But we do see the body of the character getting transferred to a slab in the quarters of Red Priestess Melisandre. Hmmmm?
The first half of the trailer is super depressing before a defiant Tyrion Lannister declares: “You’re in the great game now, and the great game is terrifying.”
BAM, fight scenes, Brienne kicking ass, Arya gets spooky eyeballs, GOOSEBUMPS FOR ALL.
