George RR Martin fans were holding their breath an hour ago, during the True Blood Pre-show, hoping to catch a glimpse of HBO’s adaptation of Game of Thrones. HBO did not disappoint and aired a 20 second teaser before the True Blood recap. Atmospheric and dark, the teaser brought us into the woods with a raven, showed the clashing of swords, and gave us a few glances at characters. The only line we hear is Sean Bean utter the foreboding “Winter is Coming”. The broadcast also coincided with HBO’s Game of Thrones webpage http://www.hbo.com/video/video.html/?autoplay=true&vid=1100909&filter=game-of-thrones&view=null#/game-of-thrones which houses the teaser and a previously unreleased picture of Sean Bean as Lord Eddard Stark. Tonight has been a good night for GOT fans. Let’s hope this means more casting news is on the way soon.
