Winter isn't just coming, it's here, and it may never end. HBO is gearing up for Game of Thrones
season 3 with the very first teaser trailer that promises an epic battle to decide the fate of the world.
The Game of Thrones
season 3 teaser has no actual footage, just an ominous narration about an impending battle, no doubt a reference to the White Walkers on the move.
"The great war is between death and life, ice and fire" the narrator says. "If we lose, the night will never end."
The promo is also very heavy on the imagery of the number 3, with three swords through the "O" and the date of the premiere: March 31, 2013 (03/31/13).
Will fire defeat ice and bring an end to the long winter? Or will the White Walkers make it past the Wall and start to do some serious damage?
