Finally! The trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5 is upon us. It seems like ages since the last series drew to a close and I’ve had to spend the intervening months watching Nashville (yes, I’m okay with admitting I’m a fan, but that’s a discussion for another day) and The Last Ship (‘Merica’s here to save the whole wide world you guys!). Also, and perhaps the saddest part of all this is that it has been a while since I last laid eyes upon the uber-fine Emelia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons.

Season 5 episode 1 kicks off on 12 April in the US, and I think we can all safely assume that we here in South Africa should see it mere hours later as one of DSTV’s Express from the US offerings.
April in South Africa… Winter is coming.
See what I did there?
