Game Of Thrones Preview: Season 3, Episode 9 - The Rains Of Castamere

"Show them how it feels to lose what they love..."

In other words, "mama said knock you out." It's too bad said knocking out had to wait until next weekend since last night didn't have the follow-up to ”Second Sons.” Of course, fans of HBO's Game of Thrones are already well aware that a new episode of the fantasy series did not air but at least we got Steven Soderbergh's Behind the Candelabra and Season 4 of Arrested Development.

Okay. So, Maeby that's not enough to satisfy the hardcore "Song of Ice and Fire" followers who don't particularly care about the 'retiring' director's too gay for the big-screen biopic or the resurrected comedy (and in the latter case won't understand the intentional misspelling of maybe), however, that exciting promo for “The Rains of Castamere” might help tide them over.

And if it doesn't, well, too bad. Something tells me they're going to tune in anyway, especially since Game of Thrones' ninth episodes are always eventful. To say the least. Seriously, NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS! As the preview says, there's only two episodes left in the third season and we all know what happens when you play the Game of Thrones. Right, Cersei?

Game of Thrones Season 3 returns next Sunday with Episode 9, “The Rains of Castamere,” at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. The series stars Peter Dinklage, Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
