The GAME OF THRONES Cast Cover Vanity Fair; Full Season 4 Synopsis Released

The month's Vanity Fair cover features Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage in character as Jon, Dany, Jamie, Cersei and Tyrion. There's also a great new shot of the dragons, and a full synopsis for the upcoming season.

Be sure to click the link below for Vanity Fair's interview with the author of the Song Of Ice And Fire saga, George R.R. Martin. In addition, HBO has released a much longer synopsis for season for of their adaptation of that saga; giving us a better idea of what to expect when we return to Westeros in April.

"Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact … but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne."

Game Of Thrones returns to our screens on April 6.

Wasn't the whole Lannister bunch blonde before?

Game of Bones

LOL, Jaime looks like he's posing for GQ in his 21st century attire. He looks so out of place.
Battabing - 3/11/2014, 6:37 AM
And yes, SupLezz, the Lannisters are supposed to be blondes.
Cercei can change her hair color with wigs, but I don't get why the guys' hair colors have changed.

They were all blond in the pilot, and got progressively less so as the series went on.
McGee - 3/11/2014, 6:59 AM
So this is the season Tyrion dies, eh? Just like in books.
McGee - 3/11/2014, 6:59 AM
Whoops! Spoiler Alert!

Sorry guys.
TheGreenBastard - 3/11/2014, 7:02 AM
Emelia Clarke yes please, sexy lady. However Lena Heady is a butterface to me.
henchmen - 3/11/2014, 7:02 AM
What in the actual [frick]? Why are the Lannister's redheads now? That is a major point in the series and why Joffrey has blonde hair. "The seed is strong"
TheGreenBastard - 3/11/2014, 7:02 AM
Gusto: I'll take one of those.
RichardBoldly - 3/11/2014, 7:05 AM


Guess they realised that the wig in Dinklege was terrible in the first 5 episodes.
ckal - 3/11/2014, 7:08 AM
Idk why the [frick] it's so hard to portray BLOND PEOPLE.

TheGreenBastard - 3/11/2014, 7:09 AM
They clearly are using magical hair due, silly geese.
ckal - 3/11/2014, 7:09 AM

Your reverse spoiler is actually a spoiler in itself since you are stating it is not true.

ckal - 3/11/2014, 7:10 AM
People should get ready for this to be the last season they can tolerate Daenerys.
revloveR - 3/11/2014, 7:19 AM
looks shopped as [frick].
TheGreenBastard - 3/11/2014, 7:22 AM
Gusto: Butterface....also, yes I am.
RorMachine - 3/11/2014, 7:31 AM
Maybe stress turns blond hair red in Westeros.

Lena Headey is bleedin gorgeous.

Nomis - 3/11/2014, 7:48 AM
^ Bleeding Gorgeous! ;)
Nomis - 3/11/2014, 7:49 AM
^ She is "bleeding Gorgeous". ;)
Ramiel - 3/11/2014, 8:04 AM
Did Jamie come back from the future or something? lol
SauronsBANE - 3/11/2014, 8:17 AM
Those dragons look completely photoshopped!
SauronsBANE - 3/11/2014, 8:18 AM
Seriously though, Jamie does look completely out of place. It's pretty amusing to see the Lannisters with their different colored hair, but for some reason Jaime just looks awkward. Can't wait for the new season, less than a month away!

Emila Clarke sat 10ft behind me on the train-line in England. I would of gushed and told her how much I enjoy Game of Thrones and her performance - but I didn't want to come across all overBEARing. She is gorgeous (if rather tiny) in real-life.
Klone - 3/11/2014, 9:08 AM
Those dragons do look photoshopped but in the recent trailer they, especially Drogon, looked brilliant.
DrunkenNukem - 3/11/2014, 9:58 AM
Lena Headey is far more pretty than the insect that you call "Miley" @Gusto
TheBeard - 3/11/2014, 10:13 AM
April 6 can't get here fast enough
manthingnitsuj - 3/11/2014, 11:03 AM
LorenzoVonMatterhorn93 - 3/11/2014, 11:38 AM

rebellion - 3/11/2014, 12:13 PM

vtopa - 3/11/2014, 1:03 PM
Leana is hot.

EarOne - 3/11/2014, 9:27 PM
