Game Of Thrones Season 8: Breaking Down That First Incredible Trailer
HBO just released the first full trailer for Season 8 of Game of Thrones – and it was packed with potential spoilers about the final season. Here’s a breakdown on all of surprising things you may have missed after the first watch.
The incredible trailer starts with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) running through the halls of Winterfell with a bloody face. It almost looks like Arya is missing an eye, but luckily, it’s only some blood caked on her face. It isn’t clear if Arya is running from something or chasing it down, but she is visibly rattled by whatever is lurking in the hallway.
One of the big takeaways from the trailer is the first look at Euron Greyjoy’s (Pilou Asbaek) fleet of ships, which are loaded down with members of the Golden Company.
According to Entertainment Weekly , Cersei (Lena Headey) sent Euron to Braavos at the end of last season to secure safe passage for the army, which she hopes to use against Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) after the war with the Night King is over.
Based on the new footage, it looks like Euron was successful in bringing the army to King’s Landing. Depending on how things go in the north for Jon and Daenerys, this could put Cersei in a good position to keep the Iron Throne.
The trailer also featured extensive looks at Daenerys and Jon’s armies in Winterfell, including a look at her two dragons. The dragons are featured several times in the trailer, though it is hard to see them and not think of their brother, Viserion, who was killed at the end of last season and was last seen being ridden by the Night King.
Hopefully, the two dragons will be enough to swing the tide in favor of Jon and Daenerys, but things aren’t looking good.
Season 8 of Game of Thrones is scheduled to premiere on HBO April 14.
