Christmas came early for Game of Thrones fans across the world as the series' official Twitter handle released the first teaser-trailer of Season 5 on Wednesday.
The ten-second long teaser gives very little away, yet leaves a lot to fans' imagination. Two things, though, are aptly clear from the teaser: Season 5 will focus on Arya and her transformation and the 'innocent Arya', who's become fiercer by the seasons, is now headed for a dark makeover.
P.s. In case you've forgotten, that's Melisandre saying "I see a darkness in you" to Arya when they met briefly in season 3.
At the close of Season 5 we saw Arya on-board a ship headed to Braavos. Now, for those who don't know/remember much about Braavos, here's a refresher.
1. Braavos is one of the Free Cities located on the continent of Essos, east of Westeros.
2. It is arguably one of richest and the most powerful of the Free Cities. The Iron Bank of Braavos is one of the most powerful financial institutions and has clients across Westeros. In Season 4, we saw the 'rightful king' Stannis Baratheon travel to the bank with Ser Davos for a loan to help their war against the Lannisters.
War is upon Westeros and the Starks have emerged as the biggest losers till now. Arya has a list of names she wants to kill and extract revenge from. So, Season 5 might just prove to Arya's moment of reckoning. That will be, however, a very dark Arya of course.
