With months to go before HBO’s fantasy smash Game Of Thrones re-enters the public consciousness like a virulent plague, the powers-that-be are dropping subtle hints as to what we can expect. We’ve already devoured the Arya-Raven teaser that bowed last month, and praise be to Ned, now there’s another. Found over at the show’s new viral site – The Sight – this teeny tease shines a spotlight on a different duo from Westeros: Sansa and Tyrion.
Unlike the first video, the new one to crop up is designed to only be viewed once. Luckily, one eager fan captured the clip via a screengrab and you can now watch it for yourself above. Followed by the words, “Keep watch for further visions of the future,” we can only assume that there’ll be a proper full-length trailer on its way. Focusing on Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), the quick slideshow of images is over almost as soon as it begins.
The first tantalizing tease debuted a month ago, offering an equally-miniscule glimpse at the story. Without any new scenes, the re-assembled footage from earlier seasons served as a suggestion of where events might be headed. Our deductions led us to believe that Bran’s role in the fifth season will be ‘taken over’ by Arya’s quest instead.
Expected to land sometime next spring, the upcoming season of Game Of Thrones will be a hybrid adaptation of more than one novel. According to showrunners, it will take certain elements from Martin’s fourth and fifth books in the series, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons. With production well underway, the onscreen future for this compelling cast of characters can’t get here soon enough.
