‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Premiere Clips: “Two Swords” Make Trouble for Daenerys, Cersei and Jaime
‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4 is nearly upon us with its April 6 premiere “Two Swords,” but with HBO stepping up promotion of the big return to George R.R. Martin‘s Westeros, winter has come early. Check out the first clips from the new season between Daenerys and her entourage, along with Jaime and Cersei Lannister, and a new look at Jaime’s fabulous new golden accessory!
As shown over NBC, our first look at ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 in motion features a tense reunion between Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), following the bittersweet return of season 3 finale “Mhysa.” Jaime has since gotten himself a fine replacement for the hand lost to the Bolton bannermen (seen in Entertainment Weekly‘s photo below), but from the looks of things, Cersei feels more than a little betrayed to have been left alone for so long.
In the second clip from Emilia Clarke’s ‘Tonight Show‘ interview with Jimmy Fallon, our new Daario Naharis (Michel Huisman) competes with Grey Worm for the honor of riding alongside Dany, though she clearly has other ideas as to her traveling companions. Poor fellas.
Meanwhile, here’s what HBO had to say of April 6 premiere “Two Swords”:
Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) welcomes a guest to King’s Landing. At Castle Black, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) finds himself unwelcome. Dany (Emilia Clarke) is pointed to Meereen, the mother of all slave cities. Arya (Maisie Williams) runs into an old friend.
In the meantime, there’s always photos, trailers and teases for the April 6 premiere, while HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
We’re just weeks away now, so check out the first scenes from ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 above and below, as well as Jaime’s new hand, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the latest outing to Westeros!
