I've been anxiously awaiting a glimpse of the new season of HBO's Game of Thrones, and it is finally here! This could well be the season fans have been waiting for. So many truths and futures were hinted at last season. Will we find answers? Well, obviously the trailer reveals nothing of that, but it's so exciting to know that Daenerys is coming to Westeros, and that Cersei basically has nothing left to lose, yet as one of the last Lannisters "that matter," she has everything to lose. In the trailer we can see Petyr Baelish plotting--will Sansa fall for his wily ways?
Will we find out if Bran's going to be a dragon rider this season? Will we find out once and for all who Jon Snow's parents were? And is Hodor REALLY dead?
Well, I guess we'll have to wait until July 16 to find out!
