"They have a choice," Daenerys says firmly in the trailer. "They can live in my new world or they can die in their old one." The trailer shows shots of the Lannisters during her speech, indicating that she will try to take over King's Landing shortly.
The trailer also features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) in shackles and in prison. This is due to a huge development that occurs in the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third book in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series.
