Peter Drinklage stars in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

“Game of Thrones” Season 3 is the winter of discontent in the land of the iron throne, according to a new trailer for the upcoming HBO series. “Death is coming for everyone and everything,” says an ominous voice over. Indeed, heads will roll!

Among the season highlights, Emilia Clarke’s steely character Daenerys Targaryen is resurgent and on the march to reclaim the throne.

But she will face a whole new landscape of shifting alliances and intrigue. Vile King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and the Lannisters continue hold King’s Landing, but can they count on Tyrion Lannister (Peter Drinklage) to save them again?

His military prowess saved King’s Landing during the battle of Blackwater Bay, but what did he get in return?

He was nearly assassinated by the king’s guard, received an ugly scar on his and lost his title as king’s hand. Will he be more interested in exacting revenge on Joffrey and his scheming mother, Cersei Lannister?

“Game of Thrones,” may be the most complex show ever to air on television because of its myriad characters. Sometimes, watching the show is as difficult as playing 3D chess. And that’s what Game of Thrones is all about; politics, intrigue and cold steel.
