Game of Thrones: Watch the New Season 2 Trailer (VIDEO)

  • 53comments

Nine weeks away. Nine weeks! The second season of HBO's Game of Thrones debuts April 1; until then, we have to make do with whatever new footage we can pick apart from the teasers the network throws into our food bowls. The second full trailer for Game of Thrones aired just before the premiere of Luck tonight, and it's obvious that things in Westeros are going to get a lot more complicated before the correct butt makes contact with the Iron Throne.

Let's just embed the thing so you can get to the goodies.

Varys the Spider dropping some serious knowledge about power! Or, more importantly, the illusion of power. Season 1 ended in shambles for the Starks, in riches for the Lannisters, and in naked bodies covered in tiny fire-breathing lizards for the Targaryens. But as Varys's riddle explains, this game is far from over, and the balance of power will continue to teeter-totter until every player on the board is cleared off except for one. Even a small man has a shot. Go Team Tyrion!

Game of Thrones Season 2 premieres April 1 on HBO.
