Those of us nerdy enough to have read the thousand-page third book already know most of what will happen during this season, based roughly on the novel's first half, and we can tell you that big things are coming. So it's very exciting to see hints of those huge events in action — Beyond-the-Wall wildlings scaling said wall, dragons belching forth flame, Jon Snow getting his romance on, etc. This could very well be the most intriguing season of the show yet, as the third is widely held to be the best book so far, and this new trailer does nothing to dispel that suspicion.
