New Game of Thrones Trailer and Episode Descriptions
Yet another Game of Thrones
trailer is making its rounds before the April 6 premiere date.This latest one, is entitled “Secrets” and like many a Game of Thrones promo is peppered with ominous sound bites and stunning visuals. The video treats us with glimpses of most of the main characters and whatever situation they find themselves in. Danaerys is becoming a badass leader; Sansa deals with the death of Rob and Catelyn; Jon is being kinda whiny and emo; the Lannisters have family drama; oh, and dragons, cuz of course. It’s what we’ve come to expect from these teasers, and it totally works. Can April come any sooner, please?
