Best quotes from the Game of Thrones season two trailer

After a teaser that was almost laughable because of its brevity*, HBO has finally released a proper trailer for season two of Game of Thrones. It's short, but I forgive them because it's stunning. The second season will take us into book two of A Song of Ice and Fire, A Clash of Kings. Just like in the first season, we can expect changes. Given the artful job they did of adding scenes, like the verbal sparring between Varys and Littlefinger and the heart to heart between Robert and Cersei, I trust them entirely (except for the change of Asha's name to Yara. That annoys the hell out of me). The writers and crew seem to get the essence of Westeros. I like that they've taken the building blocks George R.R. Martin established and transformed them into new or bigger pieces.

I've watched the trailer more than several times now, and the premiere April 1st can't get here quickly enough. We get glimpses of most of the major players in the second book. Stannis, Melisandre, Robb, Joffrey, Theon. And I can't wait to watch Varys and Tyrion face off. Just the peek we get of that in the trailer gave me goosebumps.

The trailer is set up with nice quotes that make huge character statements. I've pulled out the best... well, my favorites.

Power resides where men believe it resides. It's a trick, a shadow on a wall, and a very small man can cast a very large shadow.
- Varys
The spider supposedly serves the good of the realm, but he's impossible to read. He may seem unassuming, but he's formidable. He's holding the strings of most of the happenings in King's Landing, and you'll never see him coming. I wouldn't make him angry.

I understand the way this game is played.
- Tyrion Lannister
The Imp is heading to King's Landing. I don't envy him; he has to try to wrangle his power-crazy sister and his bratty nephew. I'd like to say I'm most interested in the way Tyrion will try to bring sensibility to the throne and make the realm nicer, but mostly? I hope he slaps Joffrey around some more.

I am Daenerys Stormborn, and I will take what is mine with fire and blood.
- Daenerys Targaryen
The Khaleesi has sidekicks now. Respect and even fear will spread over the Dothraki sea and beyond like wild fire. Dany is fiercer than ever, and I can't wait to see her kick ass and take names. (And I want to see more of the new costume we got to see for just a second).

Anyone can be killed.
- Arya Stark
Such a simple sentence but so telling. No one is safe in Westeros or across the narrow sea. Martin isn't afraid to off anyone for the sake of the story. Arya is disguised as a boy and making her way towards the Wall with criminals. Stark is a dangerous last name to bear.

*I still watched it over and over.
