Watch: Daenerys Has Big Plans for Westeros in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Trailer

The new trailer for season five of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” contains all the dragon fire, throat-slitting and steamy sensuality that keeps fans coming back year after year.

All of Westeros’ major players show up in the action-packed trailer, with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) explaining that each of the families vying for power is just a spoke on a wheel, with the top family in constant rotation. “I’m not going to stop the wheel, I’m going to break the wheel,” she declares.

The two-minute clip forecasts a bloody fifth season based on George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels “A Feast for Crows” and “A Dance with Dragons.” Martin recently warned fans that they may be in for a shock if they expect the television series to be identical to the book, per the Independent.

“People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy,” Martin said. “Everybody better be on their toes. (Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) are even bloodier than I am.”

Season five of “Game of Thrones” bows April 12 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
