GoT worshipers rejoice. Your favorite TV Series is coming back to television, and it is bigger and better than ever before. It seems like all the waiting paid off, because producers have come up with, what seems to be, the most intense season of the series. The Game of Thrones 15-minute season special “Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing” was presented on HBO yesterday, and it has made the wait, even more difficult to deal with, because it has left us with many questions. How much of the siege or occupation of Meereen will be presented in the season? Will Brienne wander the Riverlands? What will happen to the Mother of Dragons? There are a few things that the Game of Thrones foreshadowing trailer has told us:
1. On the Wall and Beyond it
We already know that Winter is coming, and that two armies (that from the North: White Walkers, and Mance Rayder’s wildlings), and the soldiers from Castle Black are about to clash. In the season-three finale we already find out that Stannis is the only one who answers the call to defend the wall. In the meanwhile, Melisandre finds a new source of king’s blood, and Bran, Hodor and the Reed children continue with their quest to find the three-eyed crow. Bran learns more about his freenseeing and warging abilities, and this creates an opportunity for us to learn more about Ned Stark’s History.
2. Sam and Jon are Reunited
To be frank, we kind of liked the Jon Snow – Sam couple, and we are very happy to see that they will be reunited. Obviously, there is some drama involved between the two as well. John Bradley says “Sam and Jon’s relationship is as even and equal as it’s ever been”, while Kit Harington adds that “I think without Sam, Jon would crumble”.
3. The Season Ender wont be the Huge Climax
Up until new we were accustomed to having episode 9 as a huge climax. According to the foreshadowing episode, this won’t happen in season 4 of Game of Thrones. Apparently, there will be more climatic events in Season 4, David Benioff says.
4. The Battle on the Wall will be Amazing
Granted, producers may not have said a lot of things about what’s happening on the Wall, but they have revealed several actions scenes. These scenes in which Styr the Magnar of Them leads the charge and Jon Snow leads others are amazing, and this means that the final result will be magnificent.
5. Daenerys may have a throne Room, but she has some problems
As you can see from the footage, Daenerys’s dragons are all grown up, but this raises another problem for Daenarys. Emilia Clarke actually sates that “They’ve killed her enemies, what’s going to stop them from killing anyone,”… “I think it’s kind of a symbol of her losing control of herself and losing control of what she’s doing.” The dragons are huge, and the book viewers will probably know that the scene at the end of the special is one very relevant to Dany’s arc. Daenerys realizes that she can’t just conquer cities and move from one to another, and that she has to leave someone who shares her opinions about leading.
6. The Royal Wedding is Magnificent
There was a lot of footage shown for the wedding between Joffrey and Margaery. Apparently, there is no secret that the two will be married, and we have to admit that the setting really looks spectacular. All the actors on the set talk about just how massive the scale will be, and Natalie Dormer actually states that she will probably never attend such a grand wedding in her life.
All in all, Season for of Game of Thrones will probably be focused entirely on the war between the Five Kings, and it will come to a close with the battles on the Wall. Also, one thing you should always keep in mind: if you are invited to a wedding, send thanks by raven.
