Nucky Thompson is a lamb compared to Stannis Baratheon.
Just before last night’s deadly “Boardwalk Empire” finale, HBO aired a sneak peek of the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones.” Titled, “‘The Cold Winds Are Rising,” the trailer is narrated by self-proclaimed Iron Throne heir apparent, Stannis (played by season newcomer Stephen Dillane) – and boy does he have an axe to grind with all those who dare stand in his way. “The Iron Throne is mine by right,” he icily declares in the teaser. “They will bend the knee, or I will destroy them.”
“Game of Thrones” returns in April. Watch the new trailer below:
