HBO Finally Drops Full Trailer for Game of Thrones’ Final Season

“I promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise.” 

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is now only five weeks out, and as excitement is reaching a fever pitch, HBO has thrown some gasoline on the fire, revealing the official trailer for the show’s six-episode swan song.

The trailer answers a few questions in quick flashes, but before we dive into that, take a watch first.

Alright, that was fantastic.

One of the easiest questions answered here is one that was poised right at the end of season seven when the Night King destroyed the wall – are Tormund and Beric Dondarrion still alive? That answer comes with a quick shot of the pair walking and appearing very much alive as they are with torch-in-hand. We can assume they have made it back to Castle Black, as Dolorous Edd is with them.

When the trailer starts we see something we’ve not witnessed since before the death of the Waif in Braavos – a terrified Arya, running through the halls of (presumably) Winterfell with blood on her face, giving us a visual foil to the audio, which is Arya’s voice sounding, booming with confidence about wanting to see Death’s face.

As for the Lannisters, we see only a quick glimpse of Tyrion, but Jamie appears to be right in the thick of the battle, while Queen Cersei sits in King’s Landing, looking forlorn and regretful, but not alone – at least not for long. We also see Euron Greyjoy’s fleet carrying The Golden Company across the sea at the behest of the Queen.

All the players are in place. From Davos and Gendry to Mormont and the dragons, this is the conclusion we’ve been waiting for since 2011.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 14, 2019 for its final six episodes.
