Game of Thrones Season 8 Trailer (HD)

Share

And while we can't imagine the show topping a battle scene like in "Battle of the Bastards", fans have been promised some of the biggest battle sequences that have ever been filmed across television or movies. Especially since things don't seem to be looking up for the Stark siblings in it... The new season is said to feature six episodes, each running as high as 90 minutes long. And needless to say, we'll all be glued to our screens when it does. The video is not actual season eight footage - instead it's similar to past teasers HBO has crafted, ones that address coming themes of the season. Meanwhile, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon were busy having incestuous sexy times on their journey back to Winterfell after securing a fake truce from Cersei (Lena Headey).

We see quite a few blink-and-you-miss but important details from the past seasons as the trio walks through the crypt.

In case you're wondering from where the feather came from, Robert Baratheon had placed it on Lyanna's statue when he came to Winterfell in the first episode. And HBO isn't getting out of the Game of Thrones business just yet. Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark not only confront their legacy and themselves in statue form, but the threat of winter that has been on the horizon for years now. This had made us real anxious as to what will become of House Stark.

This scene possibly foreshadows the deaths of the Stark Family, which is further backed up when the tomb becomes engulfed in ice and fog - heralding the arrival of the White Walkers and the Night King. Should we be more anxious about Bran or the fate of seven kingdoms?

Probably one of the highlights of the teaser was when both Jon and Arya draw their swords and went forward to protect Sansa. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head".
