Grammys, shmammys: What we’re more excited about is the new “Game of Thrones” trailer released by HBO. Though it doesn’t include any new footage (that’s what the featurettes are for), it does give us a good sense of the tone of Season 3.

“Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder,” Littlefinger says as various “Game of Thrones” main characters are shown. “Many who try to climb it fail, never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.”

So who will try to climb, and who will turn to the realm, the gods, or love? We’ll have to wait to find out when “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on March 31.
