Sneak Peek: Game of Thrones Alum Is a Real Ice Queen on The CW's Dates

Loading video...

The Red Wedding was bloody awful, but modern romance is no picnic either for Robb Stark’s wife.

In The CW’s Dates — a half-hour British import from Skins co-creator Bryan Elsley that follows a different first meeting in each episode — Game of Thrones alumna Oona Chaplin plays it hot and cold with her online suitor David (Broadchurch‘s Will Mellor).

In TVLine’s exclusive video from Thursday’s premiere (airing at 9/8c with back-to-back installments), Chaplin’s singleton uses a fake name to scope out her date — and the results are not in David’s favor.

Press PLAY to watch the sneak peek, then hit the comments to let us know if you think these two have a future together.

    I could tell that the show has been heavily repurposed based on the music used in the background being the same track used for 90210’s episode sneak peeks. :D

      So different music than when the episode aired in the UK? Maybe a music licensing issue and the CW would have had to pay money to clear the show in the US. I also wonder if it is an editing issue, and it is easier to edit out the swear words by changing the music.

        Re: music licensing: Likely. I could assume they just changed the music for the sneak peek solely.

        Licensing music is quite tricky but it could be possible the CW just cleared the original songs for airing rights, not necessarily including digital (if they are to stream it on their website or uploading teasers).
