“They know I saved they city; they know I won the war,” Jeoffrey says in a sneering boast about the epic Battle Of The Blackwater that saved Kings Landing.
Of course, Lord Tywin Lanister (Charles Dance), the Hand of the King and the real power behind the Iron Throne, bristles at the remark, knowing his cavalry charge saved the day. He seems determined to take Jeoffrey down a notch.
But the real problem is this: “The war’s not won,” warns uncle Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). He’s got that right.
The clip’s opening scene shows a shadow of a dragon flying over the city, a not-so-subtle reminder that Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is making her way back to claim the Iron Throne. And, she’s got an army and three dragons to on her side.
“They have a choice,” she says ominously. “They can live in my new world, or die in their old one.”
Meanwhile, to the north, it looks like the Wildings are about to breach the wall and swarm south to reclaim their lands.
Jeoffrey may meet his match in matrimony and there’s a new enemy for the Lanisters to contend with, Prince Oberyn Martell, aka “The Red Viper” (Pedro Pascal), who seems to have a pretty big ax to grind.
The 10-episode arch roughly encompasses the second half of “A Storm of Swords,” the third novel in the “Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R. R. Martin.
