HBO has released an incredibly brief teaser trailer for the second season of Game of Thrones. It’s a circle of fire and then someone whispering “The night is dark and full of terrors.” Well, half of that statement is obvious and the other half is why Ambien may not be the right sleep medication for you. Obviously, as someone who hasn’t read the books, the quote is meaningless to me. But apparently it’s the mantra of Melisandre of Asshai, a character who is introduced in the new season and who will be played by Carice Van Houten (Black Book).
Hit the jump to check out the brief teaser trailer. Game of Thrones returns April 2012.
Hat tip to Bleeding Cool for the trailer and the explanation of the quote. Below the video is an image of Van Houten (not in character, just being attractive).
