While Game of Thrones won’t return to HBO until almost Spring, as of now Winter is Coming and with it the promotional push for Season 3. This video released last night offers the first substantial look at Season 3, much more than that earlier teaser.
“The expectations are very high for Season 3.” Uh, yeah, unbelievable high.
What do you think of the first peek at Jojen (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Meera (Ellie Kendrick), and the Queen of Thorns (Dame Diana Rigg)? I think we saw Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) in there, too.
Also, as a longtime reader of the books and therefor a seer into the future of this series I enjoyed picking out characters and thinking, “Yeah, you won’t survive. Oh you, we think you die but you don’t. Oh, oh, and you! You definitely die.”
Game of Thrones comes back to HBO on March 31st, 2013.
