Game of Thrones Season 4: What Happens in the Premiere?
The Game of ThronesSeason 4premiere (Season 4, Episode 1, "Two Swords") airs tonight, and we can’t be any more excited. But what can you expect to see when we head back to Westeros for the first installment of the season? The cast and crew have kept most details about the premiere episode a secret, but there is some info out there. Let's run down what we'll probably find when we return to this epic fantasy.
Of course, this article contains spoilers, but only for the TV show. People who haven't read the books can proceed — but back away now if you want to be book and TV spoiler free!
A guest at King's Landing. According to the official synopsis, "Tyrion welcomes a guest to King’s Landing." We have a feeling that will be new character Oberyn Martell, who we know comes to King's Landing for the Royal Wedding with an anti-Lannister agenda at heart. We wouldn't be surprised to also meet his paramour, Ellaria Sand.
Jaime and Cersei's reunion. This sneak peek of the episode shows Jaime and Cersei's reunion, and it is less than pleasant. Cersei blames Jaime for "abandoning" her by being captured in battle, apparently. Because that's logical.
Dany heads to a new city. Nope, it's not one in Westeros. Instead, "Dany is pointed to Meereen, the mother of all slave cities." Daario 2.0 will be by her side, and you can get a taste of this reinvented character in this sneak peek.
Arya runs into an old friend. At least, that's what the official synopsis says. We're not quite sure what that means, but we're glad Aria is in the episode.
