Before last night’s debut (or re-debut after the December preview airing) of Luck, HBO shared another trailer for Game of Thrones, returning April 1. As usual, it’s full of tantalizing but brief snippets—glimpses of King Robert’s brother Stannis and his priestess/consigliere Melisandre, and Sansa in an uncomfortable situation with Joffrey—that are hard to infer much from. But I very much liked the choice of monologue from Varys, who in many ways is the cynical heart of the series, about how power is as much persuasion as strength. Those who have read the books, please keep it spoiler-free for those who haven’t, but do you like what you see so far?
