War is here and fans of George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” books have been waiting for this moment since “Game of Thrones” was announced as a series. Season 2, episode 9 “Blackwater” will show the legendary battle at King’s Landing and we’ve got a preview.
“I hate the bells. They always ring for horror,” says Varys (Conleth Hill) as they begin to toll for war. ‘He will not take us alive,” says Cersei (Lena Headey). Stannis (Stephen Dillane) has troops headed for the woefully prepared King’s Landing and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) does his best to rally the troops and save the day.
