  • So much new footage flashing so quick.

    We are going to have to pause through every other second to try to see what each scene can possibly represent…

    I can’t wait for next weekend to just come already!!!

  • I am at maximum excitement. The wait is made more bearable by the fact that I’m not fully caught up with the books, so am getting through the last two right now. 8 chapters into Crows at the moment.

  • Also, who is Arya speaking to? My initial assumption was Jaqen, but I don’t think that actually makes sense since I don’t recall them talking with Hot Pie, Gendry and others in the same room (asleep or otherwise). Maybe Yoren?

  • I want to know who The Hound is lifting straight up in the air off their feet… That looks to be a cool scene…

  • In the scene with Cersei and Tommen, they look scared, like maybe someone is invading the castle. I wonder what that is.

  • Good Gods, this is unbearable! I have to wait an additional 4 days, till 5/4, to see it – torturous! But D-Day is going to be fantastic: meat and mead at mine with my brother and sis-in-law for our season 2 premier viewing party. It’s going to be…carnivorous. ; )

  • Dany really needs to stop teasing Jorah and leading him on with all the tender cheek touching and sad eyes stuff. Eventually he might get the wrong idea…

  • EX

    I would think its probably the Battle of the Blackwater I’d imagine they moved the setting of the chapter with Cersei, Sansa, the children, and Illyn to the Throne Room so they don’t have to construct a new set for those scenes, I think it was originally in the queen’s waiting room or queen’s ballroom in the books, something like that anyway.

  • Joffrey looks messed up! At first, I thought it was his death scene, but thanks to the WIC tumbler, I saw that it was just wounds to his face. He was relatively untouched in the book battle wasn’t he? Either way, I’m glad to see he didn’t go unscathed. Joffrey is going to rock this season. Can’t wait to start hating his guts all over again!

  • Matthew,

    Was Tommen in that scene though? I can’t remember. I feel like she’d be more grandly or queenly~ dressed for that occasion, you know? Her hair’s down and she looks way too frantic (although obviously she loses it by the time she storms out of there at the end). I definitely expect the change in location though. Love that throne room.

  • As to who Arya is talking to, It looks like she’s just talking to needle, you can see her saying part of the line while she’s alone polishing needle, so yeah, which would explain why she’s whispering

    Didn’t we see a blurb where the producers actually had created armor for Cersei?

  • Nice.
    “Some men have a gift for this sort of thing [we see Littlefinger, Jaime, Joffrey, the Hound], some don’t [Samwell, Renly, a soldier being struck down].”

  • The Greatjon,

    I don’t think the producers are into soliloquies. She has some heart to heart talks with Yoren in the books, I supposed this is part of one.

  • mikeintexas,

    Ooooh. That street scene is going to have a lot of leverage, isn’t it? I hope the Hound’s rescue of Sansa is everything I imagined it to be. :)

  • mikeintexas,

    no I’m pretty sure that looked like blood on his face, its almost definitely the scene where tyrion bitch slaps joffrey, cause in the book I’m pretty sure he doesn’t just slap him but rough him up pretty good

  • mikeintexas,

    It may be just me, but watch the trailer, she’s sitting there talking to needle for the first part of that dialogue, while everyone else is sleeping on the floor, maybe theres someone else in the room, but to me she’s looking at needle and polishing it while saying the first part of that dialogue.

    Maybe I have to watch it again, but I’m pretty sure thats what I saw.

    I don’t think it would be that far fetched, It could just be trying to show how unhinged she becomes after all the horrible things she sees, she is constantly thinking about revenge, and speaks the names of the people she wants dead before she sleepsso I don’t think its out of the question for her to speak to her sword, especially considering the attachment she has with it.

  • I will say, the more I listen to what she’s saying, it does seem a little hard to believe she is saying all that to a sword, it does make sense on the other hand her saying it to Yoren or Jaqen.

    But the thing is, you clearly see her at least saying “How do you sleep” while looking at and polishing needle, and it seems like everyone else is sleeping. Maybe the first line she’s talking to needle and the rest she is saying to Yoren? Or someone else is in the room, but it does look like she’s just talking to needle to me, at least the first line.

    sorry for double post

  • You can see Yoren’s beard on the left of the screen. He’s reposed like he’s trying to sleep but he is sitting up. She’s talking to Yoren. Can’t be Jaqen because … it should be obvious.

    Do you always look at people while you’re talking to them? Do you sometimes do something else, while you’re talking to a person?
    Arya is clearly talking to someone off camera.
    As has been said, Yoren or Jaqen are the most likely people, depending on how far along in her story that scene is.

    Pretty sure it’d be Jaqen, she never really opened up to Yoren like that.

  • New footage ahh…! I love that shot of Gendry and Arya, they look awesome.

    No, Dany, don’t stop, I need as much anguished looking Iain Glen as can possibly fit into 10 episodes.

  • on a slightly different note, the new destination/character videos are up on hbo on demand, aren’t they? some kind soul might screencap or upload them…

  • There’s nothing new up on HBO/HBOGo, so if there are new character videos, we’ll need someone to get them online for us, hopefully. :)

  • Yep the “New Locations” and “New Character” videos are on demand and they are awesome! They are long and have lots of new footage.

  • Gotta say, I haven’t watched this or the previous 2 trailers. Or the recent behind-the-scenes clips.

    It’s been tough, but… I’m SO excited for Season 2! Unlike last year, I’ve barely seen anything and am totally unspoiled. Can’t wait for next week!

  • HBO has been amazing. they just kept giving fans more and more and more new footage, and behind the scenes, and character profiles, and trailers, all sorts of stuff to keep us happy. well done, HBO.

  • All these promos are making the wait much more harder. The coming wait for this sunday will be longest. HBO has really been doing perfect in building momentum.

    I wish the clock above said 1 or 2 hrs left….

  • The New Destinations and New Characters features are a treat! Seven minutes each, packed with a ton of new footage and dialogue. Look out for our first glimpse of Gilly.

    Simon Armstrong and Patrick Malahide, especially, are extremely impressive in what little is shown.

    I’m anticipating several new character features in the coming days. Surely they’re not going to stop releasing them before focusing on Arya, Tyrion, Sansa, etc.

  • loafuer,

    Can someone kind loving man or woman post these on youtube so that those who lack access to HBO-go can have a look? darquemode?

  • I’m pretty sure that is copyright infringement? If so, they will be taken off youtube whenever they notice.

  • They are all awesome! But I think the uploader on youtube is not clear enough about who made the drawings and the voice overs.
    I’ve read quite a few comments who praised his (the youtubers) drawing skills ;o

  • I hope those links get taken down. Definitely copyright infringement.

    Why did you post them here?

  • G_Lee: Who on this Blog does NOT have the blurays?

    I don’t for one. Can’t afford a player.

    Thank you for going to the effort of posting all the links.

  • loafuer,

    Especially Patrick Malahide as Balon Greyjoy, he is really fantastic in the little bit that they show. I was worried about how that story line would go this season, thinking maybe viewers wouldn’t be very interested in Theon’s story arc at first but the Greyjoy stuff was probably the best part of the video.

  • G_Lee,

    I don’t.. I just download the episodes.. I hate CDs. Is it not much more convenient to just double-click on an episode whereever you are and enjoy an episode on your laptop, than being limited to the DVD player in your living room?

  • Anyone noticed the look on Janos Slynt’s face as he went for Maeghens Baby… Jon passing justice in 3-4 seasons will be sooo welcome…

    When you say you download the episodes, are you talking about buying them from iTunes or something, or from a bit torrent program?

  • I’m surprised the new HBO OD videos still haven’t hit the net. I’m guessing we’ll get to see them by the end of the day. I forget sometimes that I live in the UK, and there is a time difference – so, whilst it may be 3:07 in the afternoon here, it’s still morning in the US.

  • HERP-DERP,

    I sleep in late one day (loooong weekend) and it happens there are new Thrones videos? Damn my timing! XD

    Give me a bit, They are recording now and I will edit and post in the next 30 minutes or so… I need coffee first.

  • darquemode,

    The longer videos are taking much longer to upload and process at YT.
    Looks like another 15-30 minutes for both videos. Sorry for the misleading info earlier!

  • Chris77,

    Absolutely. Good choice for the adaptation to give Deem’s deeds to Slynt, he is culpable for them in the books because he callously orders them and it makes sense to show a character we recognize (and already dislike) commit this heinous act.

    Seconding that I hope you are supporting the show by purchasing a digital download rather than illegally downloading it.

    No need to apologize, thank you for once again going to the trouble of making them available.

  • “Look to your sins lord Renly, the night is dark and full of terrors”

    I LITERALLY shivered. That was awesome!

    Darq you rock! Still watching :)

  • Ax0r,

    No I guess not, I’m just sayin it looked like she was, didn’t say she was for a certain. No big deal.

    The one thing I thought about, and I could be wrong about this, but in the books Arya guards needle pretty well, and is careful not to bring it out around anyone because everyone is suppose to give up all their possesions before leaving for the wall, but she keeps needle or maybe thats just when she’s takin to Harrenhal Which is why I thought she was alone. But then I remembered her pulling it on hot pie at the end of season 1, so obviously they know she has it.

    I don’t know, I’m way over analyzing, its not a big deal, just thought it looked like she was talking to Needle, not just because she was looking at it, but just the tone in her voice like she was whispering one of her stuffed animals to sleep, like a normal girl would, but Arya is not normal obviously and becomes slightly unhinged as the story goes on, so thats why instead of a stuffed animal she’s talking to needle.

    I know I know i’m reaching, I don’t care who she’s talking to really, but you guys are probably right. But I don’t see Yorens beard in that shot, but It doe’s make sense she would be talking to Yoren like that.

    lonas,

    yeah thats possible but the bitch slap scene is right after the riot so it will all basically be the same sequence of events. But looking at the screen cap, Tyrion is standing in the background, doesn’t matter either way, its all in the same time frame.

    Btw I’ve been a little behind with catching up with all the trailers and character videos, but I just wanted to make sure, the character video and the desinations video are the two newest additions so far since the ‘nowhere to hide’ trailer? I just like to be sure, because unlike some people, I can’t control myself and NEED to see every bit of video about the second season lol, so I like to be sure I don’t miss any.

  • William Aaron Grandy,

    I was thinking that myself. It would be like getting splashed by a car that purposefully hit a puddle… You know how wrong it’d be and how upset it make you but deep down you’d know… Damn… That was a good one you bastards
