“Game of Thrones” returns for Season 4 and as the release date approaches, a plethora of new promo posters have been released by HBO. While there may be over 15 new posters each one featuring a different character from the far away world of Westeros, they all evoke a similar sinister theme. Every promotional image released for the forthcoming season, premiering on April 6, has the popular phrase emblazoned across the bottom “Valar Morghulis” which in High Valyrian means “All Men Must Die.” That’s a pretty series threat considering that “Game of Thrones” has a tendency to simply kill off fan favorite characters in the blink of an eye, I’m sure you haven’t fully recovered for Season 3’s infamous “Red Wedding.”

Despite the warning all of the men of “Game of Thrones” can’t die, right? Well while they surely all can’t die, the 16 characters included in these promotional poster certainly look concerned. The posters which feature a simple color palette, of black, white and a touch of red, allow fans of the series to see the character’s expression, which seem symbolic and important to the action that will unfold in the upcoming season. The Starks, including Jon Snow, Arya, Bran and Sansa all have on rather grim and serious faces, with Arya and Jon who have always been the more connected of the siblings both with their tangled hair I their eyes. Interestingly enough, Bran who we last saw journeying through the North looks calm and collected, where as his elder sister Sansa looks terrified. Other characters included are the Lannisters, who maintain their dignified and regal stare, but if the Red Viper and his smirk have their way, the ruling family of King’s Landing will finally have to pay their debts.

Another fan favorite is Daenerys Targaryen who is gazing into the distance with a rather relaxed face, and using the Season 4 trailer as any indication, the ruling Queen of Meereen will have a difficult time ruling over her new people.
