HBO is pulling out all the stops to promote the penultimate episode of season two of Game of Thrones. Last night, they released a new trailer which includes footage of events leading up this Sunday’s episode and then a few glimpses of “Blackwater” itself. They’ve also released a 30 second promo (presumably to air on non-premium channels) plus a new fan poster (aka teaser poster) specifically for this episode. Check out the videos here and the poster after the break.
Of course, these two videos are in addition to the usual episode preview that they release every week.
And here’s the fan poster.
Lastly, this interview at Entertainment Weekly with David Benioff & D.B. Weiss focuses exclusively on the difficulties and experience of filming “Blackwater”. It’s a good read, although it could be considered slightly spoilery.
Winter Is Coming: With all this hype over “Blackwater”, my expectations are rising. The glimpses we’ve seen so far look fantastic. Just hope the whole episode can live up to it.
