About a month ago, HBO released its first full-length trailer for Season 3 of “Game of Thrones,” scheduled to premier on March 31. I had so much fun analyzing each scene in that trailer that I’ve decided to perform another dissection on the new trailer just released Sunday.
Now, of course, much of this is mere speculation, and I could be wrong about everything. Take a look at the scenes I’ve identified, and let me know if you think I’ve guessed correctly.
Here we go!
Let’s break it down now, shall we?
Daenerys sails to Astapor with Jorah and her Dothraki to buy an army.
Tyrion examines the scar he got when Ser Mandon Moore of the Kingsguard tried to kill him during the Battle of the Blackwater.
Jaime fights Brienne.

…IT’S A BEAR!

Ahh, this has to be a Red Wedding shot. Poor Roslin Frey is undressed for her “bedding” with Edmure Tully, knowing that Lord Frey plans to murder Robb and Catelyn Stark.
Arya watches the “immortal” Beric Dondarrion fight Sandor Clegane, the Hound.
