Game of Thrones Season 4: Two New TV Spots

Jon Snow

HBO has released two new television advertisements for the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones.

The first drives home the season’s most recurring message: “All Men Must Die.” It shows some new glimpses at the violence and chaos that is about to erupt in Westeros.

The second, “Awaken,” ad features Jon Snow comparing returning from beyond the wall to being asleep for a year and waking to find the world falling apart.

In Game of Thrones Seasson 4, encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact… but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones Season 4 premieres Sunday, April 6 on HBO.
