If you have read the books and are looking for spoiler-tastic breakdown of HBO’s latest Season 3 trailer, then you have come to the right place! Read on and enjoy!


This post contains spoilers for Season 3 of “Game of Thrones.” If you have not read “A Storm of Swords” and do not want the plot spoiled, do not continue. There are NO spoilers posted here for “A Feast for Crows” or “A Dance with Dragons.”


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?
