Ever since, HBO has been releasing teasers, trailers and posters building up excitement for the coming sophomore season.
Most recently a new trailer called “The More You Love” was released and a week before that, an official “Game Of Thrones” Season 2 poster reading “War Is Coming” was released.
In previous months, a new trailer was released with the narrator sharing, “The cold winter’s rising, storms come and go the big fish eat the little fish. Sometimes the ones with the most power have the least grace.”
The trailers have given fans incite into the coming season. One surprising reveal in the past trailers was Stannis Baratheon’s return. The brother of the late King Robert who died last season in a hunting accident, reveals plans to take the throne.
“I do this day lay claim to the island throne of Westeros that all true men declare their loyalty. The iron throne is mine by right,” he said in a trailer. “They will bend the knee or I will destroy them.”
