“Game of Thrones” fans rejoice. Even though there’s still a long wait until April 6 when GOT returns to HBO for Season 4, the just released trailer is a great indicator of what’s to come – and it looks awesome. Season 4 includes 10 new episodes to air on Sundays on HBO.
What does Season 4 have in store for fans? Well, the big event is the Purple Wedding of King Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell that will change the future of Westeros forever. Then there’s Sansa’s escape and her relationship with Petyr Baelish. Jon Snow and the Night Watch will fight the epic Battle for the Wall. And finally, the one-on-one duel between the Red Viper and The Mountain is sure to surpise fans.
Most of the fan favorite characters will return (except those butchered last season), but there will be a few significant new characters as well. Prince Oberyn Martell, nicknamed “The Red Viper,” will be played by Chilean actor Pedro Pascal. Ellaria Sand, the lover of the prince Oberyn Martell, will be played by actress Indira Varma. And Roger Ashton-Griffiths will join the cast in the role of Mace Tyrell, described by his mother as “The lord oaf of Highgarden”.
Now all we have to do is watch the trailer and try to patiently wait for "Game of Thrones" to return!
