Please let Bran be in the process of revealing Jon’s real parents to the King in the North when he says, “Everything you did brought you where you are now. Where you belong. Home.” The full trailer for the eighth and final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones has finally arrived and it brings with it so many questions.
Are Jon Snow and Daenerys about to ride Rhaegal and Drogon into battle immediately after the clip of the two walking toward Dany’s dragons? Why is Cersei crying and drinking? Does that mean she miscarried? It’s apparent Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) and Edd Tollett (Ben Crompton) survived the fall of the Wall, but why are we provided that spoiler? The GoT people are normally very good at withholding any content that bares the slightest resemble to a spoiler. Does that mean they’ll die quickly in season eight?
Jaime, who went from being one of the most hated characters to one who’s gone a long way toward redeeming himself, says he “promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise.” But, at what cost? He’s looking quite disheveled for Jaime as he readies for battle. Is Cersei’s brother-lover about to die in the war with the Night King?
Jon Snow’s been my favorite character since George R.R. Martin’s first book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. If either he or Daenerys are seated on the Iron Throne at the end of season eight episode six, I’ll be a satisfied Game of Thrones fan. However, during the only opportunity I’ve had to interview Martin I asked/begged him not to kill off Jon…so of course he’s going to die. In that case, it better be the Mother of Dragons who triumphs.
Season eight’s cast includes Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister. Iain Glen is Jorah Mormont, John Bradley is Samwell Tarly, Gwendoline Christie is Brienne, and Isaac Hempstead Wright is Bran Stark.
Nathalie Emmanuel returns as Misandei, Jacob Anderson is Grey Worm, Rory McCann is The Hound, and Daniel Portman’s back as Podrick Payne.
Season eight will premiere on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT. Although there will only be six episodes to conclude the series, each episode is expected to be super-sized.
