HBO is teasing us again.

(Yes, me too).

Here's their latest teaser for Season 3:

I don't know if the pun is deliberate, but the beautiful red brick building at 0:23 is the famousRookery” on south La Salle St. in Chicago. It was built in 1888, and is transitional into the invention of the skyscraper. Its cast iron skeleton made much larger spans possible, so it has a beautiful, show-off atrium on the ground floor. (And it was designed by John Wellborn Root and Daniel Burnham, and the lobby later redecorated by Frank Lloyd Wright.)

The nickname precedes the building; temporary city hall was there right after the fire, in a building infested with pigeons. Crows too, allegedly, making the name a pun on the morals of Chicago aldermen . . .

Whether it was intended or not, that's awesome!

To the uninitiated, this makes GOT S3 appear to be a similar to show to The Magicians. That or its implying some new twist where half the season takes place in our world

You should become aware of two things: 1) Metaphor and 2) That five of the books (of 7) are already written and there is no 'implication' or 'twist' that isn't already known.

That song... I cannot wait...

Ooooooooh, kind of creepy but gets me excited! Counting the days...

George, how do you feel about them straying away from your material this upcoming season and changing the setting to Earth in the year 2013?

It should be great, especially when we bring in all the Wild Cards superheros for the big crossover.

I positively love that song. I sang it for days (perhaps weeks) on end after it first came out in season 2, until my friends began to abandon me. (Silly friends.)

The crow gives me goosebumps, but only because I know I'm waiting for that third eye.

But that in combination with "our world", to me, feels just jarring. I think for someone not invested in the series or the books it won't add much suspense, it's just an odd little song and a three-eyed bird. It gives the expectation of an urban fantasy.

For someone who has read the books... well, personally, I want to see more of Westeros. Add in a character or two moving from world to world and the effect implied by the text might have come through. A showing of Jon Snow with sword and armour would have given more a sense of what the series is about. Though Bran would have been more in line with the crow...

Eh, then again, I shouldn't be complaining. I'll be happily off now, to sing the Castamere tune to myself for another couple of weeks. Maybe all the way up until next season starts.

Oh... I just had a revelation...

One of the best things that could happen in the world would be to, one day, get a Dolorous Edd POV... this would be the greatest masterpiece of all times to read ! =D

I know it will never happen, but wow... just imagining it sends shivers of laughter down my spine !

Fascinating! Can I ask about the book? Is there any chance the next tome will be finished until the next Christmas?

Never have I been so excited before. Well, except for when they revealed the final five cylons, but your series is much superior, good Ser.

I can't imagine the thrill you must experience with this, seeing your work so beautifully and passionately realized. Does it ever get you emotional?

I love that song, whenever I watch Blackwater I sit in anticipation of it. And I love the shot of the old water storage unit on the roof in the city, it looks like Chicago, my city. Can't wait for March 31st!!!!
