As they did when they dropped a bunch of Vines from the first trailer a few days before it debuted on television, the folks at HBO just gave us a brief look at their next Game of Thrones Season 4 preview — the 15-minute one that airs at 8:45 on Sunday, before True Detective< — via social media. This time they posted a 15-second video on Instagram with lots of quick glances at the show’s characters doing lots of the usual Game of Thrones-y stuff: standing with excellent posture, marrying each other, sword fighting, burning alive en masse, etc. You are free to analyze all of it to whatever degree you desire. Just try not to post a zillion book spoilers in the comments.
Anyway, again, as we said last time, yes, fine, it is a little silly to get SUPER EXCITED about a preview of a preview of a season that doesn’t debut for two full months, but also, shut up. Two months is a long time. So is two days. I mean, a meteor could hit Earth tonight and then what? Just watch the video.
