Hook Hand! Fleeting Glimpse At Season Four 'Game Of Thrones' Footage Will Make Your Inner Dire Wolf Howl

By Joanna Robinson | Trailers | December 16, 2013 | Comments ()


HBO has released their annual end of year recap/next year preview video. The highlights from 2013 are surprisingly True Blood heavy. Do they really see a season plagued by actual fairy godparents as their crowning glory? There are also enough glimpses of Veep, Behind The Candelabra and Boardwalk Empire to make us grateful that we eschewed the finer things in life this year in order to be able to afford our HBO subscription.

Of course, the general consensus around these parts is that Game Of Throneswas HBO’s greatest contribution to the pop culture landscape this year. The network kicks off their 2014 preview in the second half of this video with some (too, too) brief glimpses at Season 4. We get a joust, some Joff, Tyrion in shackles, a forlorn Sansa and, best of all, the first look at Jaime Lannister’s Golden Hand.

The 2014 preview also features a few shows and films I’m desperately excited for including The Leftovers, True Detective, The Normal Heart and, most of all, the San Francisco-set Looking.

But you didn’t come here to ogle at delightful, hipster gay antics, did you? So, for your pleasure, here are the Game Of Thrones moments in gif form. Ogle away.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Zeus McGuinnes

    No jaime Lannister golden hand?
    Also that gif of joffrey and dianna rigg... show confirmed for making motives of purple wedding obvious.

  • Maddy

    Also poor Sansa continues to be sad and break my heart :( It's pretty ridiculous how Sophie Turner makes me care so much about a character I used to have such ambivalence for in the books

  • Maddy

    I'm so sad that they cleaned up NCW so much. Dirty shaggy Jaime is the best Jaime. Why can't I just watch this already?

  • alannaofdoom

    We'll always have that season that he spent like ten episodes chained up in a mud pit...

  • AngelenoEwok


  • John G.

    I can't see this video at work, and I'm still more excited than Tyrion in a brothel.

  • That must be the Kingsguard's book that Jaime is flipping through. Hope they make it as ornate and intricate as the book describes.

  • chebyshov

    Arrested Westeros is going to have a field day

  • Laura

    Did I see Robb Stark in there? Flashback?

  • Pat Sponaugle

    That was in the 2013 section, where they covered this years stuff. Joanna isolated the new footage for the next season into the excellent animated gifs.

  • Sara_Tonin00


  • I do. And me too.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Did I spot a vampire being launched into space there?

  • fluff_fluff

    R.I.P. Jaime Lannister's hot beard.

  • IngridToday

    At least he still has his long coat... which is basically the only thing he ever wears aside from armor or rags.

  • Tinkerville

    Nothing much to say except I'd give anything for the new season to be here tomorrow. The wait is already agony.
