Final trailer for Game of Thrones Season 4 lands
James R | On 19, Mar 2014
“Joy will turn to ashes in your mouth.” That’s Cersei Lannister in the final trailer for Game of Thrones Season 4.
Well, that confirms it: people are going to die. Probably a lot of them. You know, just in case the words “purple wedding” hadn’t already made you nervous enough.
Right from the off, HBO have been emphasising the mortality of its entire cast, from the grey, grim posters to the show’s tagline: Valar Morghulis. “All men must die”.
The latest trailer, accompanied by Devil Inside, is a reminder that every character has the potential to be an evil, violent mother of a dragon. Or, to return to an earlier statement from Cersei: when you play the Game of Thrones you live, or you die.
As David Benioff’s take on George R.R. Martin’s novels prepares to take flight on an increasingly epic scale, one thing is certain: there are a lot of folks playing.
Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic on Monday 7th April, 24 hours after its original US TV broadcast – and, for the first time, non-Sky members will be able to legally watch Season 4 online live (and on-demand) through NOW for just £4.99 a month. (From 29th May 2014, this renews at £6.99 per month.)
