Does anyone survive Game Of Thrones? HBO releases three new teasers for the final season
Titled Aftermath, the minute-long clip shows the wintry landscape of Winterfell, whistling winds and the arrival of the Night King, all ahead of its Apr 15 season eight premiere.
With a little over a week to the release of the final season, three new teasers from Game Of Thrones have been released to show a few “what if” scenarios for the finale of the hit series.
Titled Aftermath, the minute-long clip shows the wintry landscape of Winterfell, whistling winds and the arrival of the Night King.
Aside from teasing the Night King's arrival, the trailer takes a few moments to dwell on familiar artifacts: a weathered House Stark banner, Daenerys' chain, Jaime's gold hand, Arya's Needle and even Jon Snow's Valyrian steel sword lodged in a snowbank.
The items suggest that their owners either left them in a hurry or were slain on the spot. You don't see any corpses in the teaser but the White Walkers don't tend to leave behind any bodies when they could be new recruits for their army of the dead.
HBO also dropped two more teasers called Survival and Together, showing several members of the main cast reuniting and preparing for war, with voiceovers stressing the need for the different factions to band together against the looming threat of the White Walkers.
In addition to the teasers, HBO also released a new poster for the final season, which depicts the main characters' corpses arranged in the same shape as the iconic Iron Throne of Westeros. Many fans believe the show is hinting at a Battle of Winterfell in the final six episodes.
