Game Of Thrones Season 8 Trailer Out | Breakdown

The Long Night is here, everyone. Game of Thrones Season 7 bowed out with an epic final episode in which we learned of Jon’s true parentage and saw The Night King and its Ice Dragon break down The Wall and move on Westeros.

Trailer Breakdown

The trailer for Game of Thrones season eight kicks off in typical GOT fashion, with a tense score and panic etched upon the face of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).

Game of Thrones fans witness a panicked Arya with a bloody cut on her head sprinting through the chambers of Winterfell.

Arya’s voice can be heard over the action with the character saying: “I know death, he’s got many faces, I look forward to seeing this one.”

The shots of Arya running through her home are interspersed with shots of Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) patrolling the walls of Winterfell and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill).

What happened to Arya and who she’s running from remains unclear.

The trailer then shows the Greyjoy ships heading back to King’s Landing – Euron (PilouAsbaek) had fled to gather his naval army to help Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) betray Jon Snow and Daenerys.
Words of wisdom from Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) can then be heard over the trailer: 

“Everything you did brought you here now.”

The action then cuts to the youngest Stark sibling in conversation with Samwell Tarly (John Bradley).
The Game of Thrones trailer then shows Cersei assembling her army in King’s Landing and Jon Snow and Daenerys riding amongst the army of the Unsullied with a battle imminent.

It’s at this point the dragons come into play, with both Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya gobsmacked at the sight of them.

The mythical creatures fly over Winterfell after Daenerys headed north in the season seven finale to help Jon Snow in the fight against the White Walkers.

Fans then hear Jon Snow for the first time in season eight as he says: “They’re coming – our enemy doesn’t tire, doesn’t stop, doesn’t feel.”

With Harrington’s character’s words ringing in fans’ ears, the trailer then shows Gendry (Joe Dempsie), Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), and Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) as they prepare for battle.

Game of Thrones’ promo then takes a violent turn in a split-second shot of Jaime (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) in a fiery and bloody battle – who against is unclear but his allegiance no longer lies with Cersei and House Lannister as he's heard saying at the end of the trailer: "I promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise."

With the trailer then descending into silence, a teary-eyed Cersei appears in a dimly-lit King's Landing, clearly emotional at a new course of events.

The action restarts with high-flying shots of Daenerys' dragons as they soar around the hills and mountains of the North. End!

Finally the trailer of the most loved and watched TV series Game of thrones is out. And as expected it is dark and intense giving goosebumps in each moment. This is gonna be the last season of game of thrones so what to say you can expect more surprises and twists than ever. And obviously the fight. The final fight its gonna be most blood shedding than ever.

High on excitement for this season. First episode will get air on 14th April 2019.
