Since the writers of HBO’s Game of Thrones left the books behind, I’ve been seriously enjoying the show. I no longer dread the sexual and other violence that made the first 5 years such difficult viewing.

This latest trailer looks fabulous! In addition to all the essential tropes of great fantasy—swords and ponies! dragons and seers! queens, and kings, and monsters (human and otherwise)!—we now have an important and powerful character in a wheelchair.

One thing: I can’t quite work out how a wheelchair would navigate all that snow. It really needs to be a sledchair. Pulled by direwolves. ETA: With attached scythe blades, like a chariot?
