HBO has unleashed the first trailer for Game of Thrones season four.
Here are a few memorable quotes amidst the desolation of war.
"They have a choice, they can live in my new world or die in their old one," Targaryen says.
"There is only one hell, the one we live in now," Melisandre laments meanwhile, though Tyrion Lannister has the final word in the trailer: "If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place."
The series' mythology rises throughout the early seasons and is the very definition of a slow burner, which rewards the dedicated viewer.
