We’ve waited nearly two years for the final season of Game of Thrones to arrive. Producers have been holding us over with sneak peeks and teasers, but now with just a little over a month until the most anticipated show in television returns to HBO, we have a trailer. FINALLY.
Season 8 promises to take the drama and theatrics to an entirely new level. Fans’ favorite faceless assassin Arya runs from the unknown…”I know death, he’s got many faces,” she mysteriously explains. “I look forward to seeing this one.” Jamie Lannister plans to join the battle against the White Walkers, as he announces “I promised to fight for the living, I intend to keep that promise.” Sansa seems to be in awe of Daenerys’ dragons—and speaking of Daenerys, she’s very much by Jon Snow’s side as they approach her fiery children…together. And of course, Cersei is very much alive, as there seems to be no killing her…but who will be the last (wo)man standing?
The trailer is the very first look at the impending war between the living and the whights, which EW reports is a battle that will last for an entire episode “and is expected to be the longest consecutive action sequence in cinema history.”
Needless to say, Game of Thrones fans everywhere are freaking out—and rightfully so.
