While Winter is ending for most of us, for those in the Game of Thrones realm, Winter is most definitely coming. After months of seeing brief clips and being teased by HBO about the final season of the hit series coming soon, we now have the first trailer to dissect and help prepare ourselves for what is to come.
It’s been a year and a half since the seventh season of Game of Thrones came to a conclusion, and for the eighth season the war with the white walkers is finally here. In the trailer you get to see a short clip of the massive battle (that rumor has it lasts an entire episode and is the longest consecutive action sequence ever filmed), you also get to see Arya running frightened through the Winterfell Tombs (at least we assume that’s where she is) as well as showing off her fighting skills, a quick clip of Cersei, Euron Greyjoy’s massive ships (carrying what we assume to be an army for Cersei), Jaime Lannister joining the Winterfell battle, Jon Snow and Daenerys walking together and preparing for war, and even Sansa seeing the dragons up close. You also get to see many other clips featuring characters from the hit show, so you might want to watch the trailer several times to take it all in.
Game of Thrones returns on April 14th, and we can’t wait to see how it all ends.
