'Game of Thrones' Episode "The First of His Name" Will Be Epic — VIDEO
When you have two back-to-back episodes with minimal bloodshed, you know that what's coming next is going to be huge. So, with that in mind, let's take a look at the trailer for Episode 5 of Season 4 of Game of Thrones , "The First of His Name." EVERYTHING about that title sounds epic, but only half as epic as some of the stuff that is alluded to in this trailer.
So, Tommen is crowned King, which is huge. Danaerys finally (FINALLY)) says it's time to go to King's Landing because she probably could tell that we couldn't stand for more of her Braveheart speeches. We also know that shit's going to get crazy once the Mother of Dragons has an opportunity to face the Iron Throne with her dragons. We also see Arya sticking The Hound with Needle —which begs the question: will Arya kill The Hound and put an end to our favorite wandering Riverlands jamboree Thelma-and-Louise-esque duo? If she does...she'll be on her own, and thereby giving us an inside look at how a sweet but smart girl can morph into a bloodthirsty killer. And of course, we still have Sansa on that boat with Littlefinger. Shudder.
Anyway, watch the trailer for yourself, and you'll begin to feel that heart-racing sensation that happens with GoT. You know, the one where your heart races so much that you have a viable excuse to skip the gym. And remember: this is only 30 seconds. We're in for 50-something minutes of wild times in Westeros on Sunday.
