‘Game of Thrones’ Season 2 Poster Tells Us What We Already Knew

You don’t need to have a PhD in foreign relations to understand that heads are going to roll in season two of HBO’s phenomenal fantasy drama Game of Thrones. By the time the inaugural season had wrapped last summer, Sean Bean’s Ned Stark was beheaded and Jason Momoa Khal Drogo was killed while Mark Addy’s Robert Baratheon and a gaggle of other notable noblemen from the world of Westeros were taken out. When royalty falls there’s always bloodshed, and anyone familiar with George R.R. Martin’s source material knows all about the battles that await the seven houses. 

In spite of the obvious, HBO’s just-released poster promoting the upcoming season of Thrones makes the message crystal clear. WAR IS COMING. Lives will be lost. Blood will be spilled. The image contains little else apart from an air date – April 1 – which will be one hell of a Fool’s Day this year. Check out the poster below and express your fanboy-isms below.
