The Coalition Prepares For War While Cersei Drinks In Game Of Thrones Trailer
by Erik Amaya
One of the great characters in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is Drunk Cersei, the paranoid and scheming regent of the realm who emerges after the deaths of Joffrey and Tywin. She blows up the Hand’s Tower and takes to copious amounts of wine. On Game of Thrones, Cersei (Lena Headly) never quite turned into Drunk Cersei — although, not for lack of trying — but her one appearance in this preview for the final season of the series is pretty much on brand for Drunk Cersei. And we’re happy to see her.
Oh, but look at all the other teases: Lightbringer! Sam at Winterfell! The Dragons! And some new horror which manages to drain all the confidence out of Arya (Maisie Williams) despite her speech about the Many-Faced God. It seems Winterfell will be the line against the Long Night, but will anyone survive the final ordeal or will all of the world be consumed in ice?
Game of Thrones returns April 14th on HBO.
