After a highly anticipated wait, the second season of Game of Thrones has certainly captivated its audience while also breezing through it’s 10 episode year. With eight hours effectively gone, only two more remain until fans have yet another long wait ahead of them. Now, on the verge of King’s Landing being under attack, HBO has released an all-new trailer that recaps the events that have led to this week’s upcoming seige, while also revealing a new poster for what they’re calling “The Battle of Blackwater Bay”.
With a scale this high, one of the major characters is bound to meet an untimely demise this Sunday. With a roster that includes Tyrion, Cersei, Stannis, Joffrey, Sansa, The Hound, and more, the series has always met an unpredictability. Last year’s ninth episode had the death of the main character, and this looks as if it has the potential to shock plenty of viewers as well. Will we have a new king by night’s end? Who will rise? Who will fall?
Game of Thones airs every Sunday night at 9PM on HBO.
