With the set-up of “Game of Thrones” Season 3 now out of the way, the HBO series is in full swing. A preview for next week’s episode “And Now His Has Ended” has arrived that shows that tensions are only going to rise as the third season of “Game of Thrones” continues.

In the teaser, viewers can see Dany seal her deal with Kraznys to sell one of her dragons for all of his Unsullied. “Is it done then?” she asks as she takes the slave master’s whip, but what happens after? Meanwhile Theon continues to escape towards Yara with the boy who saved him, and the Hound is finally brought to the leader of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Beric Dondarrion.

Lady Olenna comes face-to-face with Queen Cersei while Joffrey goes on another date with Margaery, and Cersei tries to warn her father Tywin that the Tyrells are a threat. At Craster’s Keep, the men of the Night’s Watch finally face off with Craster as one of them calls him a bastard.

Noticeably absent from the teaser was Jaime Lannister, who as viewers of “Walk of Punishment” now know has lost his sword hand. Fortunately HBO sent out an image from last night’s episode that shows him being tormented by Locke before the amputation happened. RIP, Jaime’s arm.
