“Chaos isn’t a pit,” says Petyr Baelish, “Chaos is a ladder.” He would know. In Game of Thrones (and in the books, A Song of Ice and Fire), Petyr is a minor noble from a poor family who had climbed his way to the title of Westeros’ master of coin. Although we don’t know exactly how he received his job, we have an idea that it involves the ladder he discusses in the trailer, below.
In this trailer, we get a look at many of the major players in HBO’s hit series. They stare at the screen in intense light and shadow as Petyr voices his definition of chaos. It seems like a decent enough definition, considering the world of Westeros.
But not all of the major characters appear, because the seven gods know the trailer would last twenty minutes. One character who is particularly absent? Petyr himself.
Check it out.

Note: It has the same look and feel as my favorite Game of Thrones trailer, the one that first made me sit up…and immediately subscribe to HBO: The Iron Throne Preview.
