Robb Stark grapples with his heart as his mother reminds him that he's inherited his father's responsibilities which come at a cost.
HBO hypes up the highly anticipated return of "Game of Thrones" with another trailer from the upcoming season 2. It has a lot of new footage, sharing a longer look at a new challenge faced by Robb Stark, who has now become The King of The North.
"I wish that you were free to follow your heart," Catelyn tells her son Robb, who will find a love interest in this season while he's in a quest to avenge his father's death. "But you have inherited your father's responsibilities. They come at a cost."
Meanwhile in King's Landing, Robb's sister Sansa hardly convinces Tyrion Lannister that she is loyal to her fiance, King Joffrey, who ordered the execution of her father, Ned. Tyrion himself declares his loyalty to his prostitute lover Shae as he promises, "I would kill for you."
Jorah Mormont praises Daenerys Targaryen for her kind heart, but the widow of Khal Drogo proves she has a strong determination. "I am not your little princess. I will take what is mine with fire and blood," so she says.
While romantic relationships will seemingly affect the dynamic of the characters in the upcoming season, the trailer warns, "The more people you love, the weaker you are."
"Game of Thrones" season 2 will premiere Sunday, April 1 at 9/8c on HBO. The new cast members include Stephen Dillane as Stannis Baratheon, Carice van Houten as the red priestess Melisandre, Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth, Patrick Malahide as Balon Greyjoy, and Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth.
