New footage galore in trailer that suggests a small wrinkle in power struggle
"Power resides where men believe it resides," says the spymaster Varys in the just-released second season trailer for "Game of Thrones."
"It's a trick," he adds. "A shadow on the wall. And a very small man can cast a very large shadow."
It's valuable advice, especially considering its recipient: Varys (Conleth Hill) is speaking to the very small man Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage).
The trailer suggests Tyrion may become a more prominent contender in the battle for power between the Lannisters, the Starks, and the newly endragoned Daenerys Targaryen when "Game of Thrones" returns to HBO on April 1.
