'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Spoilers: Teaser May Hint at Lannisters' Fate
If you thought we might get an official teaser trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 very soon you’d be right. HBO just released a short preview for the show’s final season, and while it doesn’t include any new footage it may still reveal some new information about the upcoming episodes.
Light spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8 below.
The “Dragonstone” teaser (above) is only a 30-second video of the Painted Table in Dragonstone, but it’s enough to get you excited about Season 8. It begins with ice quickly covering everything, including a direwolf figure to represent the Starks and a dragon for the Targaryans. At the same time, fire is coming from the south, where it quickly burns a lion figure meant to symbolize the Lannisters in King’s Landing.
It is fitting, given the final season of the HBO series (based off of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels) is set to feature a big battle between humans and the Army of the Dead.
The trailer seems to suggest that the Knight King’s frozen army will overwhelm) both Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen (or at least suggest it might), but what about the flames enveloping that lion? Could they represent the flames of Daenerys’s dragons? Or something else entirely?
What besides an actual dragon could stand up to the White Walkers? We may find out when Game of Thrones Season 8 arrives, even if the answer is nothing.
The teaser trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 debuted at around the same time as an official panel at a Comic Con in Brazil where the showrunners and Maisie Williams were present. But beyond this short video we apparently didn’t learn much about the show’s final season.
Now that this teaser has arrived, though, it’s probably only a matter of time before we get a full-fledged trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8, right?
Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres in April 2019 on HBO.
