‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Trailer Teases an Epic End, Reveals Premiere Date

It shows Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, approaching Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) in Winterfell - which we all know belongs to the Starks, and has been theirs for thousands of years. Arya's & Sans a look like them are that age because they die at that age. The final season will have only six episodes, making it the shortest season.

If you're the gambling sort, this might be the ideal time to place your bet on who will win the Game of Thrones since we now know when the final season of the HBO hit series will premiere. So let's unpack it all, shall we?

"Game of Thrones" fans, get ready.

One of the major draws of the season will be the reunion of Arya Stark and Jon Snow as the two haven't met each other since the first season of the show. The same feather was picked up by Sansa in the fifth season, when she visits her aunt's statue.

Game of Thrones lore paints Rhaegar as someone who kidnapped and raped Lyanna in the Tower of Joy, but this was revealed to be inaccurate in the show's sixth season.

But as some have also posited, there's a chance that Bran's role as the Three-Eyed Raven prevents him from getting a statue in the crypt, as he technically might not actually have a human form anymore.

Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that. The Polish national, Piotr D., was a former high-ranking officer of the Internal Security Agency until 2011.

"Jon walking by and blowing the feather off the statue is symbolic of the fact that Jon is a child of Lyanna and the Targaryen", one reddit user posits.

The quote is pulled directly from Season 3, when Catelyn opens up to Robb's wife, Talisa, about her own regrets from Jon's childhood. She just stands there, doing nothing.

And finally there are the words from Ned himself as he reminds Jon that Stark blood runs through his veins even if he doesn't carry the family name.

Another theory centers around the statues Jon, Arya and Sansa find in the crypts, statues made in their likenesses. Also, promos for the show are generally not considered canon - a trailer for a previous season, for example, showed faces of still-alive characters displayed in the Hall of Faces.

On Sunday, January 13, HBO announced that Game of Thrones is returning to the small screen on Sunday, April 14.
