Man, Westeros is a pretty awesome place. If, you know, you’re a bad guy, and you’re rich, and powerful, and you don’t mind killing and backstabbing and doing horrible, horrible things to your fellow human beings. Methinks George R.R. Martin, who wrote the books that the HBO show “Game of Thrones” is based on, just loves to yank the chain of his readers around, given how nothing in his books ever seem to work out the way people want them to.
I suspect there will be more WTF moments in Season 4 of “Game of Thrones,” which has now debuted a new swanky trailer that involves all those aforementioned killing, backstabbing, and people doing horrible, horrible things to other people. Is there another Red Wedding around the corner? Close, close, but I suspect people will be a lot more happy about this season’s wedding-related shenanigans.
One thing’s for sure — if you’re still waiting for the white-haired chick to finally get her butt over to Westeros with those dragons of hers, well, you’ll have to wait a little longer. Oh, who am I kidding. You’re gonna have to wait a LOT longer.
Season 4 of “Game of Thrones” commences on HBO this April 6th.
