Dorne calls for vengeance in the epic first trailer for Game of Thrones 4 + screencaps breakdown

By Sati. Monday, January 13, 2014 , , ,
HBO has finally revealed the first full-length trailer for season 4 of Game of Thrones. Just like the trailers for the previous seasons this promo is terrific. We get so much good stuff here - glimpses of the battle, the trial by combat and even Arya back with the Needle and Sansa at the Eyrie.

But perhaps the most intriguing is the shadow of the dragon over King's Landing. The show doesn't use flashbacks, nor does it seem likely it's an alteration made for the trailer. Could it be one of the upcoming dream/flashback/vision sequences that Bran has? It's certainly not the present reality.


The season which will focus on the second part of Storm of Swords will bring us another big battle, this time in a different part of Westeros, another memorable wedding and what I'm guessing will be the best performance from Peter Dinklage on the show yet.

The new season begins Sunday, April 6th. The purple wedding.

The champion of Meereen charging at Daario, Daenerys, Jorah and Barristan.

Sansa Stark during her escape.

Jaime with his Golden Hand.

Ygritte, still pissed off at Jon.

 
Tell your father I'm here, and tell him the Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts.

New addition to the show - Oberyn Martell, the prince of Dorne, played by Pedro Pascal.

People of Meereen welcoming Daenerys.

The trial of Tyrion Lannister.

Arya Stark reunited with her sword - The Needle.

The obligatory shot of Cersei and candles.

The Mountain.

Jaime angrily grabbing Cersei. This appears to be the beginning of their infamous sex scene.

Rast leaving the offering for the White Walkers

Jon Snow, possibly at the Wall.

The wildings, possibly storming the Wall.

Melisandre burning shit down.

Littlefinger and Sansa at the Eyrie. The shot of Sansa appears to be from the same scene this moment comes from. The beginning of snow castle scene perhaps??

This looks like the meeting of two Bolton armies - a little chat between Ramsay and Roose?

There is only one hell - the one we live in now - is Melisandre talking to Yara? I'll certainly prefer Yara joining Stannis' army than becoming the substitute for Jeyne Poole from the books.

Jaime as the commander of Gold Cloaks.

  It looks like since Littlefinger left for Eyrie, it's Oberyn's turn for classic chats with Varys in front of the throne.

  Ramsay enjoying - no doubt - twisted sex

  Bran - most likely - about to have a vision.

Oberyn vs Mountain

  Arya during the fight at crossroads Inn.

Jaime with a new sword?

Hands down my favorite shot of the trailer - Cersei crying with defeated look on her face

    2. Smaug isn't even in the league of DRAGON DRAGON... he spits fire, he knocks you out with his tail. He can do drop-kicks. He's the greatest dragon of them all!!!!

    1. I think this may be the best one yet, the second part of Storm of Swords is my favorite out of all the books.

  8. Cersei crying is the best part. Lena is such an amazing actress. She makes me hate Cersei so much.

    1. She is wonderful as Cersei. I cannot wait for her big scene at the wedding.

  9. Thank you for this! I missed that Ramsay clip, I'm afraid to see a Ramsay sex scene. I still don't think the Mountain looks old enough to be the Hound's older brother, but eh, he's big and freaky looking.

    1. Well they need to have sex scenes somewhere now that our horny Robb is gone :( I'm just glad they changed the Mountain from season 2

  10. He lost his hand AND willingly cut his beautifully long and dirty hair?? At least he's bigger.

    Great job with the screencaps Sati, it really brings out the details that we might miss in the video! Exciting stuff!

  11. I thought Jaime lost his hand? I only knew this from your posts, ahah. Well in any case, he's still got his gorgeous face so that's good :D Boy that is a loooong wait for you 'til April, how mean of them to release the trailer now already.

  13. I just loved that trailer! I shouldn't have watched it because I usually don't watch trailers (I don't want to spoil fun for myself) but for Game of Thrones I had to make an exception.
    It indeed was one hell of a trailer!

    About the dragon shot, I was quite stand when I saw it and I was wondreing is it really King's Landing? It seems like it but right now Dany is so far away from it so I don;t know what to think about that.

    And wow, Oberyn looks fantastic! Great casting for the part.
    They changed not only the Mountain but also Daario Naharis and I've very glad they did. That guy was hideous, can't imagine how Dany could fall for a guy like him after being married to Khal Drogo!

    I'm really looking forward to so many moments in this season but one of my favourites are definitely scenes from Eyrie! And Purple Wedding and what happens after it! I'm sure we will see so many amazing performances but I'm also affraid that we can forget about any award nominations for the cast members. So unfair what happened this year!

    1. It looks like Red Keep in the end of the shot, so it's gotta be KL. I think it needs to be Bran's vision, perhaps of Dragons coming to Westeros? I'm so confused here.

      Yeah new Daario will hopefully be an improvement over previous guy :)

      Yeah, no one will get nominated except maybe Dinklage and maybe Pascal if most voters are women :P

  14. Oh man, I am dying to know what this purple wedding is all about. It can't be as bad as the red wedding, can it...? Guess I'll find out soon enough! Can't wait.
