Game of Thrones

HBO's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' TV Show


HBO Year End Video Features Game of Thrones

As has started to become something of a habit for HBO’s Game of Thrones, it gets something like pride of place in their end of season trailers that promote both what came before (such a shame that Luck seemed to deserve only a split second glance of Dustin Hoffman—that was a beautiful show) and also what’s to come.

It looks quite nice, and given images we’ve seen from Morocco, it almost certainly features a harpy which is another symbol of the Ghiscari who are descended from the Old Empire of Ghis.
