by at . Comments

Game of Thrones has released a new poster in anticipation of season two, and it's bound to cause a bit of controversy...

... for what it reveals about season one.

We won't actually spell it out - just in case readers who wish to remain in the dark and are ferociously catching up on the first season DVD prior to April 1 can't figure out the spoiler - but the image is hard to miss. See for yourself:

    Since I can't edit my earlier comment... I realize you want to market to new viewers, but if they start with season 2 and not season 1, they're already going to know what happened to Ned Stark. It's not an issue, as far as I'm concerned.


    You can't build a marketing campaign aimed at people who either didn't watch the series or didn't read the books.


    It could be a spoiler but for some people may not recognize Ned...*crosses fingers* I do feel that his death was spoiled & talken about so much already that people who follow sites like TV Fanatic, etc. already know, even if they don't (but should) watch the show!
