As usual, screencaps at our Tumblr.

Winter Is Coming: Cool trailer! Lots of new shots here, including our first look at Ygritte and Yara. Oh, and the interplay this season between Tyrion and Cersei is going to be awesome, isn’t it?

    Woo hoo! More Robb and Sansa! And a new shot of Ygritte!

    And is that Yara (Asha) on the horse with Theon at 0:40?

    That was a great trailer, it had a lot of cool new footage, also was that Asha/Yara at 0:40?

    good trailer – waiting to see the screen caps later.

    who was in bed right around when Arya said “anyone can be killed”?

    The Rabbit,

    I’m in Australia, so it’s mid afternoon. Lazy Sunday sleep in, followed by new Game of Thrones trailer with all that lovely new footage?

    Me gusta.

    I’m really convinced that that isn’t Asha with Theon because it looks absolutely NOTHING like Gemma Whelan unless they did some secret re-casting or crazy awesome make-up that make her gain weight and changed her bone-structure. But really, it doesn’t look anything like her so I’m having a hard time believing that’s really Asha/Yara.
    Idk maybe I’m just wrong?

    Looks like they’re moving the more overt Jorah/Dany overtures up a season. Makes sense.

    there was a part where Shae pushed Sansa , but the only time they really got to interact with each other was after Sansa’s wedding with Tyrion… what’s HBO up to? XD

    Great trailer! I love the women of Westeros

    A few questions:

    1) Who’s Shae attacking at 0:53?
    2) Is that Theon at 0:52? Who’s the woman?
    3) Sansa running in the streets. The riot?
    4) Who’s that guy hurting Ros? : (

    That doesn’t look like the Yara/Asha I’ve pictured. It doesn’t even look like Gemma Wheelan! That said, if it’s indeed her, I’m sure they’ll make it work!

    Can’t wait!

    This is the first trailer for season 2 that I haven’t been thrilled about. I don’t know if it’s because most of the added scenes in season 1 were really hit or miss with me, some were great some were awful and knowing there is going to be a bunch of them this season. I still don’t really like the casting for Shae and this trailer reminded me she is going to be in season 2 a lot and I’m really not thrilled about the casting for Yara if that was supposed to her riding on the horse with Theon. I just want HBO to send out those screeners so we can see the reaction season 2 gets from critics.

    Maybe she’s the captain’s daughter, the one who wants to be Theon’s “salt wife” and not Asha/Yara. She doesn’t look like Gemma, I agree.

    Or maybe it IS Asha/Yara, but she’s disguise herself to pull the “Esgred” joke on Theon.

    There is also the possibility that we should expect more perverted stuff in season 2 if trashy gay blow job scenes and extended lesbian porn scenes weren’t enough based on this interview with David and Dan http://www.heyuguys.co.uk/2012/03/09/game-of-thrones-interview-writers-david-benioff-and-d-b-weiss/ when they talk about the sexual content in the show they say “HBO have never made us cut a scene, there were a couple of times…in season two when they said ‘Really…?’ and we said ‘Yeah, really!’.” Apparently it’s not HBO forcing them to put a bunch of sex in the show and apparently there are sexual scenes in season 2 that HBO executives feel might be too much or unnecessary. I like some sexy stuff in the shows I watch and I didn’t have an issue with it in Game of Thrones until that Littlefinger brothel scene. I just want them to handle sexuality the way most HBO shows do and not be too lewd and try and top Spartacus. Spartacus will always have a smaller cult audience because it’s so decadent but Game of Thrones has the potential to be a massive hit and a lot of people will be put off if the show is too pornographic and lewd.

    I don’t know if I have watched the same trailer as you guys but the woman who rides with Theon has Gemma Whelan’s face, even if the clothing is very bulky.
    I am now very curious about the Ros and Joffrey scene.

    Watching it again, I’m pretty sure that’s Gemma as Yara. The hair threw me off at first, but her face looks about right.

    Well, it may be Gemma but definitively she doesn’t look like Asha in that scene. It seems she’s playing the “Esgred” role in a different way than the book. Well, as long as we see the real Asha later (husband and suckling baby included), I’m fine with it.

    Is that Stannis and Melisandre getting together? Holy R’holler.

    Wouldn’t that mean he would find out about, ahem, her shadow-baby-pregnancy-thing? I never understood that. Is she pregnant all the time, ready to birth shadow babies at any moment, or does she have to get “pregnant” when she wants to cast a shadow baby to kill someone? Anyone know?

    On the girl in bed with Theon, could it be Osha? He always had the hots for her. Maybe when he invades Winterfell, instead of sending her to the blacksmith or whoever it was in the books, he keeps her for himself.

    Why would Theon be holding Yarsha, his own sister, like that?

    I totally mean this as a legitimate question, because it’s been forever since I’ve read ACoK.

    It was Yara / Gemma Whelan with Theon of course and Im realy looking forward to see her
    she is sorta always smiling but it could also be tricky and having at go at you. I think she will dress Asha/Yara skin perfectly, who will also have a say . even more in later series.Here the only clips on youtube showing Gemma .

    It’s like the producers are warning everyone: “Don’t get too emotional-attached with ANYONE, guys. ANYONE. You know what happened to the (apparently) main man last season, so don’t whine if your favorite character bites the dust. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.” XD

    In the books he doesn’t know she’s his sister. Asha comes to him under a different name and story and starts to play with Theon as she were seducing him.

    As a queer person (yeah, playing that card, sorry) I totally agree with this assessment.

    There’s ways to do these kinds of scenes and this typically-astounding show isn’t pulling it off. I really, really cringe whenever I’m reminded of the Loras/Renly or Littlefinger scene, because they’re just so, so exploitative. More than the hetero parts, I feel. (Sadly, this is a flaw that most American television possesses.)

    Looks like HBO is going to raise the bar on romance this season, good idea too, bring in more female viewership. The more viewers, the more likely of going the distance.
    I don’t mind changes here and there, to present a stronger package for mainstream audiences, as long as the story doesn’t deviate to much, or it improves or fixes a flaw from the books.

    Who’s waking up next to Theon? The woman has this look in her eyes that is not pleasant.

    Ty/Shae sex, Stan/Mel sex, Ren/Marq sex, Robb/Jeyne sex, Theon/Yara (awesome)/? girl sex, Ros/everyone sex, sex, sex and more sex.

    Ya, I was surprised by the looks of two woman: Asha for one. I always imagined her being this super sexy woman, and that shot actually makes her look… well, not very appealing. Also, Margaery Tyrell in the books is supposed to be one of the best looking females, surpassing Cersei’s looks as the fortune is told.She’s cute, but she should be A+ model material in this case.

    Pink Dragon,

    I think it’s the back of Gilly in the first shot of Jon talking. I think he’s refering to her asking Sam to save her and her unborn babe but being reticent to explain the whole “human baby sacrifice to the Others” thing Also, I think Rose Leslie (Ygritte) only shot in Iceland where there are no forests, and we can see trees behind Jon, meaning that scene was shot in Belfast.

    But yeah, right after that is YRGIIIIIIIIIIIITTE!!!

    im in love

    I don’t know, I feel like there’s plenty to offer the (typical mainstream) females: most of the men are dashing and attractive, if not witty, and there’s cute kids and plenty of romance and strong female figures.

    Needless to say, there’s much to offer the “nerdy”-type woman, too. So I’m not sure that’s the case, although, hey, I could be wrong.

    I think they will develop Shae more in the TV show, in the book she was kinda a one-note character. I secretly always hoped that Shae would take Sansa under her wing but sadly that never happned in the books.

    In the books, when did Cersei slap her beloved devil child, Joffrey? I don’t remember that.. but I’m liking the visual. Should have slapped HARDER!!! Cersei is looking all kinds of deliciously evil.

    It makes me want to giggle how Sansa always says Joffrey is her beloved and she worships him. Who says girlfriend isn’t a survivor? My hope is that GRRM writes Sansa as the meek and dutiful lady who eventually spoils all of Littlefinger’s master plans and brings him to his knees!

    noooooooooooo….

    1. as hot as this would be it would absolutely massacre the storyline, 2. would be tantamount to rape considering that’s what Sandor was planning to do in that scene

    We should be satisfied with the canon kiss and “un-kiss” respectively.

    Mimsy: My hope is that GRRM writes Sansa as the meek and dutiful lady who eventually spoils all of Littlefinger’s master plans and brings him to his knees!

    More like brings him to the edge of the moondoor and then he “slips”.

    Violentos,

    I think it’s hard to judge how she looks in one shot, particularly one so brief that it’s practically a still. Attractiveness has just as much to do with one’s poise and body language as much as one’s features.

    Personally, I can’t understand why there’s all this fuss about making Yara/Asha being super-attractive. If she were that attractive, would she be as able to take up a man’s role among the Ironborn? I’m not saying she has to look ugly (clearly she has to be a certain level of attractive in order for Theon to want to hit on her) but we shouldn’t be expecting Daenerys-level beauty, should we?

  65. sj
    Posted March 10, 2012 at 11:56 pm | Permalink

    Mimsy,

    In all fairness, we never saw Cersei’s POV before A Feast for Crows, so we don’t know what exactly went on before then. She might have slapped Joffrey in the books when there wasn’t a POV character around to see it. It does seem a bit out of character, I’ll admit, given how batshit she goes whenever someone else slaps Joff, but I do recall how she slapped Tommen in AFfC.

    My guess? Joffrey says something insensitive about her precious Jaime. That giver her motivation enough for her to smack him.

    I agree with sj — if it came down to her children or Jaime, Cersei would pick Jaime any day of the week. So I’m guessing Joff got slapped over something of that sort.

    I don’t agree that it doesn’t look like Gemma Whelan in the trailer. It looks just like her, to me, but with different hair than we’ve seen in her very few photos.
    “Yara” isn’t supposed to be some great beauty, but I do think Gemma’s pretty. She’s also in disguise as plain common born Esgred, remember?

    Wow, this trailer is the best so far. I had to give may little break down and thoughts on it.

    The 1st few seconds Catelyn is trying to talk some sense into Robb to not follow his desire to be with the Jeyne Westerling. (Who is played by the beautiful Oona Chaplin who indeed does have “breeding hips” as stated in the books) This forbidden romance seems to be more front and center in the TV series. Which will make the RW have a greater impact on the TV viewers. The CGI and epic size of Robb’s armies camp looks awesome. No CGI complaints by me there!

    Then you have Sansa Stark telling the Imp what she has been trained to say, and the Imp giving her that look like “You have learned how to lie well” (Just like in the books). Then Tyrion talking to Shae. (I am sure they are going to build up that relationship so the TV viewer also gets the full impact of whats to come).

    Then you have Dany’s Bear expression his feelings to her. (Yup they are going to build on that relationship, as they should).

    So we got some major characters with their minor character love interests being fleshed out.

    Poor Jon Snow is just out there beyond the wall trying to figure out what’s going on with the dead walking and wildlings all leaving their villages.

    Then you got the beautiful Cersei smacking Joffrey and being ultra paranoid forcing her to use her dull wits that just makes a mess of things up for her family. Tyrion is there just trying to keep her in check so she doesn’t ruin everything. (Just like the books)

    And OMG at 1:02 seconds you see a glimpse of when Theon first meets (unknowing to him at the time) his sister Asha!!! That chapter and how she totally mind f****d him was one of my favorites in book 2. I am so happy to see they will put some of that in there!!! That 1 second peek of him on the horse with her in a sexual way really was my favorite part of this trailer. I can not wait to see that unfold on TV!

    Then you have the beautiful Margaery with Renly. Then Brienne kneeling down to become one of Renly’s personal bodyguards after wining the tournament. Then Margaery drops her dress in front of Renly and Renly doesn’t look to interested.

    Then it looks like Melisandre is going to have some fun with Stannis. (Probably the cost to give birth to his shadowform).

    Then Dany being her demanding sexy self with that voice and attitude that is so awesome!

    Then Arya hiding for her life.

    Then is looks like Theon laying down and Ash getting up behind him with a big grin? (Could they have diverged from the book and let his sister go all the way with him?)

    Then some super fast flashes of other important stuff!

    Overall it looks total awesome. The CGI backgrounds, the wardrobes… Just the general feel of it looked amazing. All these characters with their own personal dramas going on while at the same time they are all intertwined in the big picture… It is truly going to be an epic season. Just like the books, if you compare them, each book gets better then the last. I have a feeling the TV series will be the same. Each season will get better and better. Season 1 was just the foundation of this colosual tower called Game of thrones!

    Love this trailer. Loved the music too! Good for HBO to tout the women of Westeros! Suck on that Sady Doyle!

    Carice’s Melisandre is just awesome. Words cannot describe it. I can’t wait to see her in character.

    And Natalie Dormer is going to fit right in. No worries there.

    Ygritte = the feral Amy Adams of the Seven Kingdoms. Rose Leslie looks cute and winsome. Love the look of her character. She’s going to steal Jon’s heart. Maybe mine as well.

    Sansa and Tyrion, Cersei and Tyrion, Lena as Cersei (fantastic), verdict is still out on Yara/Asha, oh and CGI Robb’s camp and CGI King’s Landing! Awesome.

    Looking forward to a ‘super’ trailer in the next two weeks or so.

    The shot of Dany looking into an old house or something…HOTU?

    It might be that Cersei slapped Joff after hearing about what he had been doing to Sansa … If you remember in the books, Joffery was terrified about what would happen if Cersei ever found out he had been beating on Sansa.

    Being that she was an abused woman, both physically, and sexually, I could see Cersei slapping Joff for everything …

    Especally after trying to strip Sansa naked.

    I agree. When I read her in the books she has this-to quote AICN-”sexy tomboy beanpole” aspect to her. Sort of like Melaka Fray from Joss Whedon’s Fray miniseries, who like Asha/Yara also wielded an axe. I think D & D are going for a more realistic Norse woman kind of aesthetic with her. Let’s see if the actress can bring in her personality…

    Mel could easily pick up both those roles. Besides getting into some quarrels with Jon Snow at The Wall, Stannis’s wife really has no role in the books other then being Stannis’s wife…

    I guess they couldn’t hide it, but Robb breaking his vow to the Freys won’t be a surprise now in Season 2.

    I’m also not sold on the King’s Landing CGI shot from Shae’s balcony… the effects were minimal but great in Season 1. I know they’d want a wide shot of KL like that for Episode 9 during the Blackwater, but in broad daylight… not too smart.

    While I hated the character and all the stupid scenes she had in Season 1, I do have to admit that I’m growing fond of Ros. If they’d just dumped her, it would have been like what George Lucas did with Jar Jar after The Phantom Menace … rather that correct the mistake and make it work, Lucas just dropped Jar Jar from the series.

    It wouldn’t have felt right for D&D to do the same to Ros … I’m actually glad they’re trying to do something with her. Hopefully, in meaningful scenes and not just sexposition this year.

    Whenever I think of the Iron Islanders and their axes, I get this picture in my mind from a 1950′s viking movie where they throw axes at a closed castle drawbridge until enough stick that one of them climbs them to open the gate – “The Vikings” maybe with Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas, and Douglas as the one who climbs the stuck axes?

    His wife is supposedly really ugly, which is supposed to show how shitty Stannis’s life has been, but other than that she and their daughter haven’t really been all that important in the narrative.

    In fact maybe Stannis being unwed might attest to how lonely and unwanted he had been (Personality of a Lobster) and with Mel it might be more suspecious how she came into his life moved the furnature so to speak and nested into this hard ass’s life.

    I think all the background CGI looks very believable.

    As far as Ros goes, and I hope I don’t get yelled at for saying this but its just my thoughts.

    I think they are setting it up so that Ros is the one thats whipped and beating (possibly even killed). By Cersei/Joffrey because they think that is the whore that Tyrion is having his affair with, (instead of Shea).

    Just my thoughts. It would give a greater affect to the TV audience since Ros is already well known.

    No in the orginal post I had made I said that Mel was Stannis’s wife and Ned never said a name. So it might be that Ned knows that Stannis has wed, just not knowing her name.

    What I’m trying to say is what if Mel is Stannis’s Wife in the adaption … Because Stannis outwardly would never sleep with someone out of Wedlock or without the permission of his wife.

    I still love all those movies, cheesy as most of them are. I grew up as a kid in the 60′s watching them whenever they popped up as reruns on TV. There was another called “The Longships” with Richard Widmark that I watched often as well.

    We have it so much better now, although Hollywood would still manage to make “Game of Thrones” cheesy somehow. I’m so glad it’s being done on HBO. That way we don’t have to worry about “Game of Thrones” in cheesy crap pseudo-3D being re-released into theaters.

    Game of Thrones season 1 is being played back to back on HBO.

    I just watched a scene with Khal Drogo. I am going to miss Drogo. The actor who played him really had a strong presence in the film even though it was a minor role.

    In season 2 there will be no warrior type like him. I really hope in season 3 they cast an actor with muscles and a cool warrior type attitude to play Strong Belwas to fill that void of the barbarian type warrior.

    Nope, Dany’s very first Clash chapter is when she realizes Jorah is in love with her (the scene shown is probably part of the adapted part of that).
    However he doesn’t try to do anything about it until the first chapter of Storm.

    Yeah Jason Momoa did such a great job as Drogo. I went to see Conan, just to see Khal Drogo live yet again. Wish it didn’t crash at the box office…

    That scene when Drogo makes his gift to their unborn son.

    They way he paced around the fire and how he screamed and beat his chest.

    “As the stars look down in witness”

    And Dany just looking at him…

    Was one of the most intense scenes in season 1.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Cm82T7g5mg

    I know they will never get a guy like that to play a warrior in the series again.

    But please, please have the producers cast a really great warrior actor to play Strong Belwas.

    That duel Strong Belwas has with that cocky warrior on horseback outside the city gates of Meereen. How he kills him, takes a shit and wipes his a$$ with the dead warriors cape in front of Meereen’s entire army as they watch from high above their city walls will truly be epic if the actor who plays Strong Belwas is half as intimidating looking as Jason Momoa was…

    Some interesting new footage, but honestly this trailer worries me more than excites me for the new season. Mainly because of that shot of Joffrey with what appears to be Ros. Frankly, I thought all of the scenes with Ros in the first season were pretty bad, even the first one with Tyrion.

    From what I remember in ACOK, Tyrion considers bringing Joffrey to a brothel to calm him down or some other reason; it doesn’t actually happen I’m pretty sure. Looks like the writers unsurprisingly decided to expand on that thought and have Joffrey meet up with, unsurprisingly, Ros. Really, I think the major male character one on one scene with Ros has been overdone, and the prospect of Joffrey interacting with her just doesn’t sound good. Maybe they can make it into a good scene, but I have my doubts–there’s really not much to learn about either Joffrey or Ros with the two interacting. I think it’s been established already that Joffrey is a giant douche.

    Random note, re-watching all the episodes on HBO’s marathon tonight:

    Jeyne Poole is, apparently, extant in the show; Sansa mentions her mother as having had ‘five children, all daughters.’

    Yeah, many people have been speculating for quite some time that Ros is taking Alayaya’s place in the story, since she wasn’t cast.</b

    As for the quick shot of Theon in bed with a woman, I don't think its Asha. Doing the “Esgred” scene is one thing, having them actually in bed together…I dunno. At this point I’ll assume its Kyra.

    If Theon is sleeping with Osha, does that mean no Kyra? I suppose later on she can just be a random woman from Ramsay’s dungeons, but her death will have less of an impact if you haven’t seen her before. On the other hand, maybe Theon is just happily working his way through all the women he can find.

    Lena Heady looks amaxing in this. More beautiful than ever. I think she’s upping her game, specially in her interaction with Tyrion. Cersei FTW!

    I don’t like so much Yara/Esgred looks. I guess I’ll have to readjust my mental image of a lean, athletic Asha to the more womanly Gemma Whelan. But, as others have pointed out, it’s the bada$$ness that counts.

    And count me in the “Ros as Alayaya” wagontrain. In fact, it will be more of an emotional impact for the viewers if the whore we’ve know since season 1 is unjustly beaten up and whipped, even killed than a new character. A good move by D&D, IMHO.

    All in all, a rather intimate, romance-centric, trailer after the sheer epicness of the previous two.

    Off-topic: Did you people see the last Spartacus episode? Conan Stevens was great in it (no pun intended). The guy can act. I’ll miss him this season, I think he was a perfect GREGOR.

    Loved the trailer. Praise R’hllor, Van Houten and Dillane couldn’t be more perfect in their roles. And hurray for Ygritte and Yara/Asha, I have a feeling I’ll end up loving them to bits.

    Andrija Andrew P:
    ‘T would seem that Joffrey gets slapped at least once per season… I approve :)

    Another weird tidbit from the HBO rewatch.

    Ned, in episode seven, mentions a wife of Stannis. (“Not his steward, not his captain of the guard, not his wife…”) Are we supposed to believe he didn’t know Stannis didn’t have a wife – just Mel – or through all of season two is Mrs. Baratheon going to be off-screen?

    randomgirl:
    Is that Stannis and Melisandre getting together? Holy R’holler.

    Wouldn’t that mean he would find out about, ahem, her shadow-baby-pregnancy-thing? I never understood that. Is she pregnant all the time, ready to birth shadow babies at any moment, or does she have to get “pregnant” when she wants to cast a shadow baby to kill someone? Anyone know?

    I think it was definitely confirmed in Dance with Dragons that Mellisandre and Stannis slept together (she says to Jon her bed is empty since he left) and I think she says how she has weakened the king with her magic and I assume that meant creating their shadow babies.

    Even though the shot of King’s Landing is heavily CGI-ed you can still recognize Dubrovnik from it and it looks amazing. I think there will definitely be something new with Daenerys storyline that wasn’t in the books and as always I can’t wait for 2nd April anymore. The only disappointment in the trailer is Asha, I pictured her in a completely different way.

    I love how the ruby around Melisandre’s neck is glowing just like in the books. From the angle of the camera in that shot could it be a scene from a prologue of the Clash of Kings?

    What do people think of the whole Renly and Margaery kiss? It’s hard to tell whether it’s a reciprocated thing or not, but if they’re playing it as though it is, that bothers me a bit.
    I thought I might appreciate this trailer a bit more in the day, but no such luck.

  154. Michael Harper

    Dunno if it’s been mentioned yet, but I think the person Shae is attacking is Ros. Perhaps Ros will be the whore that Tyrion visits before going into the tunnels under King’s Landing. Shae finds out, and goes and lays a whole can of whoop ass on our favourite whore! :P

  155. Nick Larter
    Posted March 11, 2012 at 8:31 am | Permalink

    Seems a logical enough extension of what was hinted at in the books to give Joffrey a bit of whore-time: probably then also explains the scene in the other trailer where LF is comforting Ros. Loved the shot of Ygritte with Longclaw.
    I’m intrigued by the Margaery story arc.This trailer would seem to blow out of the water the possibility of an innocent Margaery unjustly locked up for fornication subplot as in the later books. I’d always assumed that the twist there would be that Pycelle was lying about the moon tea and that she really wasn’t sleeping around, as unlikely as that would seem. And if they can’t do that subplot, then how do they stop the Tyrell – Lannister alliance unravelling? The only thing holding that together by the end was Mace’s desire to get his baby out of jail.

    Steve Hugh Westenra,

    See I think that kiss looks incredibly awkward, like they’re being watched. Or maybe consummate the marriage? I’ve actually never agreed with some that the marriage wasn’t consummated; despite Renly’s gayness, it seems like he would force himself to get it done because having an heir is so important.

    I also thought that looked like Ros getting roughed up by Shae but I couldn’t work out why it would be her. It doesn’t look like Sansa and I don’t think Shae would actually abuse Lollys.

    Arthur,
    Yeah, many people have been speculating for quite some time that Ros is taking Alayaya’s place in the story, since she wasn’t cast.</b


    As for the quick shot of Theon in bed with a woman, I don’t think its Asha.Doing the “Esgred” scene is one thing, having them actually in bed together…I dunno.At this point I’ll assume its Kyra.

And finally a glimpse of Ygritte in costume. She looks awesome! Great job, HBO. I’ve watched it twice and still can’t find Asha/Yara, but luckily there are pictures on the Tumblr page. The woman Theon is in bed with definitely looks more like Osha than anyone else, but it could be some random girl.

    Dany has and will always be my favorite character… Obviously.

    I am so happy Emilia Clarke was cast as her. She is beautiful and has that voice and accent that really make Dany come off as that “tough pretty girl Targaryen brat, that better get her way or else”, cause she is “Blood of the Dragon”. =)

    The CGI dragon she is hand feeding while it is perched on her shoulder looks really good too. That has to be Drogon right? Even though Drogon is black in the books I guess the TV series made him red…

    Ours is the Fury,

    That’s exactly what I’m hoping for (and what I was likewise hoping someone else would interpret this as). It’s comforting to hear that that seems what at least one person got from the trailer.

    I’m excited to see Dormer as Margaery, because I think the actress is great, but I’m not sure I like that they seem to be making her such an obvious schemer. I think we kind of have that in Cersei already, and I loved the contrast between Cersei and Margaery in the books. It makes me wonder if Dormer was directed to play Margaery the same way she did Anne Boleyn in The Tudors, rather than being trusted by the directors to be able to play her more akin to how she is the the books.
    That said, this is all ridiculous speculation, since we’ve seen hardly any of Margaery yet, etc. I think I’m becoming more frustrated with characters actively have their personalities changed in the show, as that’s something about the books I would consider more important than superficial changes/the moving around of storylines.

I like some sexy stuff in the shows I watch and I didn’t have an issue with it in Game of Thrones until that Littlefinger brothel scene.

    Oh boy, can’t wait to see what else D & D will teach me on prime-time this year! I could have had loads of better lesbian sex years ago, if only I had known that ‘assplay’ was the key!

    The Rabbit: Though, I am more intrigued by going ons in KL with Ros and Joff.

    I’m guessing he tries his hand at ‘fucking painted whores’, and Ros is far too mouthy with him, and he gives her a good beat-down, and then Littlefinger has to console her and say ‘Sometimes those with the most power have the least grace” scene that we saw in the previous trailer.

    I think I have FINALLY figured out why D&D love Ros, and are making her into a major player in S.2 – she is their own little piece of fanfiction in a GRRM story, and you know how he is sooo anti-fan-fiction – but this is a way for them to get a piece of themselves and their own ideas into his story, and a way for them to ‘play along’. She’s their baby now, and they are having great fun adding her into the story, and I am willing to bet you at this point Ros is never going away and will get more and more important. Ros may end up beside whoever wins the Game at the end. She’s their fan-fic baby, and now I finally understand. And I can’t say I blame them, if I was in that position and could add in my own character and have her play along in the world there, I’d do it too.

    The sex scenes I have seen in Game of Thrones season 1 were tame compared to other cable channels like Startz and Showtime.

    Take Spartacus for instance. You get tones of male frontal nudity, homosexual sex scenes, rape and a bunch of orgies. Game of Thrones had nothing like that.

    Take Californication for instance. You have tons and tons of sex scenes. GoTs isn’t 1/8th as bad as that.

    And finally take True Blood. I used to be a fan up until last season. True Blood has turned into a soft porn flick with Sookie in a love triangle getting it from 1/2 the male leading characters.

    GoTs will stay true to the books I hope. And yes sex is part of the books but it isn’t at all a big part. I understand the TV show has to throw a little more in there for “entertainment purpose”. But I hope they use the 10 hour season time more wisely and show us the important stuff. Not boobs…

    purplejilly,

    While it is an opinion, I would have to say she doesn’t look attractive at all in this trailer, yeah in other photos or videos you see of her she is pretty cute, but idk maybe she was disguising herself so Theon wouldn’t recognize her, but she really looks unattractive in that trailer, not trying to be degrading or whatever, just my opinion. And yes I understand its not all about the looks, and also Asha in the books isn’t exactly described as extremely beautiful, but I always thought it was said that she had a sexy/seductive look to her (for lack of a better word) and wasn’t unattractive at all. So she wasn’t exactly what I pictured Asha/Yara to look like. I know i’m nitpicking, and it may be too early to judge considering it was a half a second glimpse, but hey I got nothing better to do than discuss season 2 lol.

  181. Maxwell James

    I think it is Sansa and Shae in that shot, but I also think most viewers are misreading it. Shae isn’t hurting Sansa, she’s physically restraining her from doing something. Readers can probably guess what that is.

    As for Asha, two thoughts:

    1) They’re definitely playing up the Viking angle with that haircut.
    2) They’re also definitely playing up the squalor of the Iron Islands, since everyone there (up to and including their lord) seems to be wearing a ragged hairshirt.

    I wouldn’t have made either of those choices, but together I can understand them.

    I’d say the more important aspect of the actress who is playing Asha is… Can she throw an axe? I do agree with you in the books she was made out to be an attractive woman. But her more important characteristic is her ability demand the respect of the Ironborn men around her with her skills as a warrior.

    Tyrion will have Shae become one of Sansa’s “sitters”, instead of one of Lollys’, like in the books. That would explain why they’re interacting here. Maybe this is the scene where Sansa is trying to burn her bloodied sheets?

    Again with the gentle heart thing??

    Possibly the start of the condescension/pedistalization vs. tru wuv theme we get with Jorah in aCoK. I really hope we get Dany saying (to Doreah?) “Sometimes he sees me as a child, sometimes as a woman he would like to bed.

    I just watched the trailer in 720p on my PS3, and kept freeze-framing the scene of Shae grabbing hold of the mysterious someone. I think it’s definitely Ros. If you look earlier when Joffrey grabs her it’s the exact same hair style. I know they all wear similar styles in King’s Landing, but it’s exactly the same.

    - It looks like Shae’s role is increased, I hope her acting improves.
    - I agree with the Renly/Margeary thing: please don’t let him fancy her.
    - Please don’t make Melissandre horrible, I loved her POV chapter, she seemed so genuinely cool
    - Osha is awesome, having her role increase will be fabby
    - Yara/Asha seems fine, stop with the sexism fandom!
    - The sex issue might not be about having more sex, rather the type of sex.
    Rape, underage, threesome, male/male explicit sex could all cause the powers that be some concern depending on the way it is filmed and the characters involved.

    I’m late to the party, but…
    - What is with the Littlefinger deathwish? I hope he not only survives but wins!

    It’s not that hard to understand – he’s a great character but an absolutely horrible human being. He has no qualms whatsoever about doing incredibly evil things that harm innocents. And worse, he has no greater goal in mind. He only cares about revenge and self-aggrandizement. The North Remembers.

    - Looking forward to see some depth to Ros. Underused actress (overused sexposition).

    I really hope that they challenge rather than glorify the “happy prostitute” trope using these characters. Last season it was played straight which I found to be off putting.

    - I agree with the Renly/Margeary thing: please don’t let him fancy her.

    The thing that bugs me about the way they are going with this is that I always assumed that Marg knew all about Renly’s… proclivities, having heard the situation from Loras. The Tyrells are very close with one another, and very smart. Marg should know what she is getting into – I figured she might have lovers on the side, just as Renly has Loras – it was all above board in other words. So in other words, it seems weird that she’d try to “seduce” him.

    - Please don’t make Melissandre horrible, I loved her POV chapter, she seemed so genuinely cool

    Word, I am worried that they are going all evil with her portryal and make Stannis some kind of hapless victim, though indeed that’s how most readers feel after they’ve only read aCoK… I don’t think it’s the truth.

    Rape, underage, threesome, male/male explicit sex could all cause the powers that be some concern depending on the way it is filmed and the characters involved.

    Hmm, all I really want is passionate male/male kissing and rolling around TBH. :p Not sure why anyone would want to see rape or underage, and there’s no chance they’ll show erect penis – it’s just not done.

    I’m not sure why everyone thinks that the person lying in bed is Theon… my first impression was that this is Robb, and the girl next to him is Jeyne…

    As to Yarra/Asha looks… Maybe she isn’t very sexy but – trusting D&D – she’ll be proper bada$$ :)

    Fury has a nice screenshot of this scene on Tumblr- it’s absolutely Alfie Allen and Natalia Tena.

    Think we’ll get one more trailer before it hits? I can’t recall how many there were last time.

    Really looking forward to everything Cersei this season, looks like Lena’s doing an amazing job.
    I wonder if that shot at 0:49 when Melisandre’s looking down at the camera is from Maester Cressen’s death? Could be wrong of course, but that’s the vibe I got.
    I’m also quite sure that Sansa is the one Shae is manhandling. Best reason I can think of why that would occur is if that scene took place around Tyrion and Sansa’s wedding, and this is Shae not taking it too well ? But that seems unlikely, as those events don’t take place until ASoS. I hope they’re not moving storylines around that much.

    Langkard,

    Funnily enough, I believe Longships was also shot (partly?) in Croatia! :)

    I’ve finished a breakdown and page to screen analysis of this trailer on my blog for anyone interested. As usual I would really appreciate the thoughts of others on some of my speculation, particularly the astute commenters here at Winter is Coming.

    I think the concern over more sex in the series generated by this trailer should be assessed in context. The trailer is clearly themed around love and draws as much material related to that theme as it can from the available pool of footage. That is a massive bias and I am not worried that the show will be as focused on those elements of the story as this specific trailer is. It is also the job of a trailer to grab your attention and whet your appetite and brief shots of kisses and sex are a mainstay of achieving that goal in trailer making.

    Now we just need a shot of Lord O’ Bones and Jaqen H’ghar and I’ll be happy. Glimpse of a shadow baby would be cool too.

    No-One,

    Not as far as I know but I’m interested to find out too. We still don’t know what the backing music was for the Power and Grace trailer either.

    Seeing Ygritte gave me serious chills. Especially with the music (I take my trailer music very seriously). I love her already!

    If Dany has such a “gentle heart” why does she yell and threaten people in every trailer I’ve seen so far? She must be bluffing =/

    I can’t wait…Ahhh seeing everything become visual just makes me feel like my imagination has been physically manifested, I love watching this world come life.

    FancySansa,

    I say that there is a 50% chance that Emilia [Dany] will ruin the 2nd season thru her bad acting… she’s definitely the worst actor from the season 1 cast… she always tends to overact..
