This weekend saw the release of the eagerly anticipated (at least since it was teased earlier this week) trailer for the fourth season of HBO's Game of Thrones series.
As with the series as a whole the production values are first rate and the glimpses we get of the CG from a Giant to the shadow of a Dragon show that the scope of this series looks to be the best yet.
As the series goes I'll be talking about each episode here on Random Chat as well as creating some posts for the series that have already been released. These will contain moderate spoilers. However when it comes to my crazy ideas I will label spoilers and make it a chore to find them to stop people inadvertently ruining the show.
So sit back and watch and ill produce a bit of ramble under the video.
This does leave an opening for a antagonist and this is looking to be filled by Oberyn Martell the Red Viper of Dorne. If the writers are able to capture the swagger of the Viper from his book depiction then we are in for a treat.
Speaking of swagger Jamie's return to Kings Landing was shown in more than scene and his reconnection with his sister and the rest of the family already looks to be causing issues. This is especially noticeable in the brief scene he has with Joffrey where they are discussing war. Jamie is an interesting character and one I'm sure I will visit a number of times as I go through my Game of Thrones musings.
As for the rest of the cast we saw a few glimpses of the Stark Children, Yara Greyjoy and the Hound among others but the closing line and seemingly most poignant quote comes from Melisandre "There's only one Hell...the one we live in now.
It looks like Winter is Coming and so is Season 4.
