After giving subtle hints in the form of a few seconds long teasers, on what the final season of Games of Thrones (GoT) holds for its fans, HBO finally released a complete two-minute long trailer of the fantasy series.
The trailer gives you a glimpse of all every prominent character from Jon Snow to Dolorous Edd (Lord Commander of the Night's Watch ) who was assumed to be dead in the last season.
One of the first shots that we see is that of Arya Stark, who is fully prepared to take the Whitewalkers. She is sharpening her weapon and uttering lines that can give you goosebummps. “I know death, it’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one” says Arya.
If you are already amused, wait, there is more in store.
There' s also a glimpse of Jon Snow and Daenerys at the crypt brooding over something, probably a statue that will make you believe that the former is finally knowing who his real parents are.
There are various shots of epic-looking landscapes, a bewildered Sansa and yes, we also see John Snow and Daenerys Targaryen solemnly going towards a crowd of awaiting dragons.
Daenerys’ dragons – Drogon and Rhaegal makes an appearance and not merely just like props but as characters, deciding the fate of the upcoming war. Sansa Stark catches a glimpse of the dragons and she looks miffed.
Jamie Lannister, Cersei Lannister and Tyrion Lannister also make an appearance. Cersei is seen in her usual position, at a dingy chamber at the King’s Landing, holding a glass of wine, probably recalling her past and fighting to hold back tears.
Jaime Lannister told Cersei in last season that "I promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise” and here we find him keeping his promise although that look on his face suggests he might’ve done the other way.
And yes, we catch a glimpse of the Night King as well.
"It’s going to be huge, that much everyone needs to know," Emilie Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons told the press at the Academy Awards 2019 night.
"The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us. Everyone was broken at the end. I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f**king tiring. We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, ‘Right, I’m f**king sick of this,'” Jon Snow aka Kit Harington had said in an earlier interview.
Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on April 14 and the trailer prepares its fans to witness a gore fest with unexpected twists and turns and heart breaks with multiple death in merely six powerpacked episodes.
