Does waiting for your dragon egg to hatch seem longer than the agonizing months leading into the next season of Game of Thrones? We feel you. Luckily, we’ve also got you.
On Tuesday the show launched an official new website, Three Eyed Raven. Sound familiar? That’s because the title plays into Brandon Stark’s storyline and his inability to walk/ability for foresight and body jumping. Anyhow, with the new site came the first of what promises to be many brief videos whetting our appetite leading into the April 2015 return.
In it, we revisit Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), who has been through more than most so far on this show. Here, she’s an even darker version of herself now that she’s witnessed her father’s death, missed a reunion with her mum by this much and escaped her only (somewhat) source of comfort in The Hound (Rory McCann).
“I see a darkness in you,” the ominous voice of Melisandre (Carise van Houten) predicts to a close-up of Arya’s face. The entire clip is only 10 seconds long but thanks to quick snippets it says so, so much more. And we’re saying we’d like another one, pronto. Maybe of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) or Daeny (Emilia Clarke)? Heck at this point we’d even take Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) or Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
We aren’t expecting one of Bran (Isaac Hempstead) anytime soon though. As was confirmed earlier this year, that character won’t be a part of the upcoming season — despite the meta-sounding website launch.
Need more? Well check out the video for yourself, below. And sign up to receive text messages or a direct message on Twitter with the next new installments as they’re released. Judging by the fine print involved with the signup, we’re expecting roughly 15 of such messages in the near future—some of them maybe even before winter actually gets here.
