There was so much jammed into that trailer that I don't know where to begin...with the trailer, that is.  It looks awesome.

But my own great Game of Thrones moment from the weekend?  I was walking in NYC and someone caught my eye.  Who?  Peter Dinklage, hailing a cab!  He saw the recognition on my face.  And considering he was with his kid?  I especially did not want to be an annoying fanboy, and just gave him a nod of acknowledgement.

Gonna hit it this time, Nick?  That was way cool to see... and sit on the Iron Throne.

If I can plan it out, yes.  I seem to remember you saying that the lines were pretty long for last year's exhibit.

Yes, they went around the block.  But I was going by in the middle of the day, so I'd recommend going early and getting there a before open.  I must say that when I went they must have opened the doors early, too because I got in just after it should have opened and we were moving before that.  At least they keep you entertained and do some trivia.  I won a key chain.  It's definitely worth it and you can spend as much time as you want there in the exhibit.  I'd just hit the Iron Throne first since that usually gets the longest line.

The season 4 trailers are looking good so far.  The "Vengeance" trailer left me wondering about a few scenes that are included.  One character in particular at the end was a little curious.  Could it have been Coldhands?

I believe you could be right, Nick, though it would be a 'reimagining' of the story's description.  I can't believe these trailers seem to have spoilers across them.  I guess Arya's prayer includes Melissandre?  Not sure why... I've still got to catch up on Season 3, though so maybe the answer's there?  Plus, I'm curious about a kiss in there... I know who the man is, but I must be mistaken about the woman, but maybe her profile is similar to another character's?

I was assuming the taking of Beratheon's Bastard son, the smith kid?

Think back to the pilot for the series and the final scene.

Should be a great season.  Lots of cool things coming with season 4.  Especially the Purple Wedding!

Yeah Scott, me too.  Total geek weekend started with GIJoeCommunity last night and ends with Cap tomorrow and GoT Sunday.  Throw in the emotional ring ceremony for the Sox this afternoon and it'll be a good four days.

Wow!  They really got the ball rolling last night with some significant plot points.  Great start to the season.  Although seeing Ice melted down to be reforged into Valyrian steel swords for the Lannisters was a bit of a tough pill to swallow.
