New Game of Thrones trailer shows the price of sin and the cost of power

We're getting close now to the premiere of Game of Thrones' second season. And HBO is continuing its advertising siege of awesome—releasing yet another tantalizing trailer to whet our appetites with the promise of blood and fire.

We've seen a handful of these trailers now, and all of them have—while showing off the series' trademark turns of phrase and baring of flesh—managed to reveal a larger world, one bursting at the seams with new characters, new rivalries and new passions. And the same wonderful Tyrion Lannister.

April 1 can't come soon enough.
