"There's only one hell: the one we live in now."
Welcome back to Westeros! Game of Thrones returns for its highly anticipated fourth season on Sunday, April 6, which means we still have to endure the dark and cold winter without our favorite fantasy obsession. So. Not. Cool.
But HBO decided to gift us with a taste of what we can expect in season four, releasing the first trailer for the new season on Sunday night. (So long, Golden Globes!) And surprise, surprise: 'twas epic!
Oh, and it proves King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) is still the worst!
The trailer kicks off with Joffrey boasting that he won the war (LOL),but Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), sporting a hot new 'do, sets him straight, saying, "The war is not won."
Especially when you have Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) threatening, "They have a choice: they can live in my new world or they can die in their old won." We bow down, Khaleesi!
Also included in the trailer are first looks at several of the new characters, Joffrey's wedding to Margaery (Natalie Dormer) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) warning about the Wildings coming over the Wall. Gulp! Plus, Cersei (Lena Headey) makes some pretty big threats and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is in danger. Must be Sunday!
Of the new season, George R.R. Martin recently told E! News, "We have another royal wedding, this one is not red; this one is a different color. We have the introduction of some great new characters. We finally introduce one of the most popular characters from the books: Prince Oberon Martell. The Red Viper of Dorne will be introduced for the first time and there will be some other new characters that I think the fans will like."
Along with announcing the return date of Game of Thrones, HBO also revealed that the upcoming fifth season of Boardwalk Empire will also be its last.
