In case you were not in sufficient concern over the fates of your favourite Sport of Thrones characters, HBO has launched one other teaser certain to make you assume twice about rooting for anybody. The newly launched teaser titled “Aftermath” does not comprise precise footage from the ultimate season – not like the official trailer that offers us glimpses of Westeros getting ready for the massive battle forward – however it does give us an ominous warning for what may come after the battle.
Within the promo, the digicam pans by a very desolate Winterfell, seemingly recent after the massive battle. The panorama is totally coated in snow – because it tends to be in Winterfell – because the digicam travels down from the rafters to the courtyard beneath. Because the digicam strikes, there are a number of objects which can be pointedly in plain sight:
- Tyrion’s Hand of the Queen pin
- Arya’s sword, Needle
- Lyanna’s feather
- Bran’s wheelchair
- Jaime’s golden hand
- Daenerys’s dragon chain
- Jon’s sword, Longclaw
Now it is fairly apparent that these are supposed to signify these particular characters, however why are they buried within the snow? GoT is thought for being fairly grisly and by no means sparing any character, however we extremely doubt they’d kill nearly everybody of significance in a single fell swoop. However these are positively the characters who face probably the most hazard within the oncoming battle, as they are going to be proper within the thick of all of it. It does not assist that, as Jon’s sword comes into view, a determine approaches the archway, too obscured by the blowing snow to actually make out. But it surely’s protected to say that is the Evening King and he is coming for all these referenced earlier than.
The promo is fairly much like the primary two promos launched for season eight: the primary of which confirmed hearth and ice clashing over a map of Westeros, with statues of a direwolf (the Starks), a dragon (the Targaryens), and a lion (the Lannisters) being consumed by both aspect. The second featured three of the final youngsters of Home Stark – Jon, Sansa, and Arya – all collectively for the primary time since season one, marching by the crypts of Winterfell, passing statues of their late relations, like Ned and Catelyn Stark and leaving large Easter eggs alongside the best way. There is no concrete reply to what all of it means, however we get the fundamental gist. Issues are about to get tremendous messy in Westeros and nobody, not even your faves, is actually protected.
