'Game of Thrones' trailers: Wars and beasts are coming in Season 3
With less than two weeks to go until "Game of Thrones" Season 3 premieres on HBO, the network has rolled out three exciting new promos for the epic fantasy series. Hopefully after two seasons fans have come to expect the violence, romance and machinations that are teased in the below "Game of Thrones" videos.
There are many different storylines at play here, but the underlying message is that the war for Westeros didn't end with Stannis' defeat at the Battle of Blackwater in Season 2. Robb Stark laments that he has won every battle but is still losing the war for the North of Westeros, Stannis Baratheon is angered that everyone no longer considers him a threat for a throne and King Joffrey has definitely gotten out of control. Then there's Daenerys Targaryen building her army beyond the Narrow Sea, Jon Snow going undercover with the Wildlings north of the Wall and many other characters trying to keep their heads afloat as their land gets submerged in a terrible war.
Excited yet? You should be. Toss in a healthy dash of sexy encounters between Robb and his wife Talisa Maegyr and Jon and wildling Ygritte and you've got the makings of another excellent season of "Game of Thrones." Watch the new full-length trailer and two promos below, and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
