Today, HBO released a series of promotional posters for the upcoming, earth-shattering Season 4 of “Game of Thrones” on the show’s official Facebook page. The ads feature the surviving Starks, (with the exception of Rickon because…let’s be honest most of you probably wouldn’t have even thought about Rickon if I didn’t mention him) Sansa, Bran, Arya and Jon:
As well everyone’s favorite dysfunctional family, the Lannisters, (minus Myrcella and Tommen WON’T SOMBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN) Tyrion, Tywin, Jaime, Cersei (and her wacky evil eyebrow!) and Joffrey:
The rest of the ads, which all feature the famous Valaryian phrase that Jaqen H’ghar told Arya,”Valar Morghulis” (“All men must die.”) feature major characters Daenerys Targaryen, Littlefinger, the Hound, Brienne of Tarth, Margaery Tyrell, Tormund Giantsbane and Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell (the lone newcomer included). Really, the only surprising addition is Tormund who I assume is going to play a larger role within the Wildlings vs the Night’s Watch plot. Aside from that there’s not really much to be said. I’m anticipating this season so much, and have already dissected the two official trailers to death (All Trailers Must Die) and I’ll take anything I can get until April 6th.
Also, I plan on reviewing each GoT Season 4 episode in much the same way that I’ve been reviewing “True Detective”, unless I get an aneurism from anticipatory anxiety in the weeks following TD and before GoT…so be on the look out for those. Since I have read the books, the reviewers will be spoiler heavy so if you haven’t read the books stay clear and also I kind of envy you (unless some dickhead on an unrelated YouTube comment spoiled everything for you! The internet is dark and full of terrors).
