HBO gave a sudden blessing to the Game of Thrones fans with this gigantic trailer. Given the publicity encompassing the last season, HBO could have not dropped a trailer, at all. Rather, the full last season trailer contains a great deal of information for the conjecturing masses, just as some out and out affirmations of character destinies. Here are the best reveals from the trailer:
1. Death and the Wolf
“I know death. He’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one.” Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is the main face and voice we hear in the Game of Thrones trailer, and her words are as a glaring difference to what’s unfurling onscreen. Arya sounds certain, legitimately talking as somebody who has managed in the specialty of death for a considerable length of time and years — however the certainty is obviously broken in the pictures of Arya going through the lobbies of Winterfell, blood all over, fear in her eyes. Obviously, Arya has met death in a way even she couldn’t envision.
2. A Spider in the Crypt
Not to be lost amidst Arya’s horror, there’s this: Varys the Spider (Conleth Hill), sitting alongside a bunch of regular citizens in the crypts of Winterfell. The tranquil fear all over, just as the others, shows that the White Walkers are close. In season seven, the red priestess Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) emphatically inferred that Varys’ passing was up and coming. It is safe to say that we are presently beginning to get a more full picture of how his demise will play out? From the begin, Varys has prided himself as a victor of the realm. He serves the general population. Could Varys’ passing come as the Spider looking at his biggest dread — magic, as the Night King’s powers — so as to protect the basic people in the tombs? Tragically, it’s a simple situation to imagine.
3. The Golden Company
The Night King’s military is a merciless power, however by all account not the only danger heading into the last season. From the get-go in the trailer, we see the Greyjoy armada flaunting some odd new tenants. For those who don’t remember, Queen Cersei directed Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) to cross the Narrow Sea and fetch an army of soldiers of fortune known as the Golden Company. Here they are: the Golden Company, sellswords who are known for never breaking an agreement, driven by a warrior named Harry Strickland — all around likely the golden-haired man on the ship’s deck, played by German actor Marc Rissmann. (Looks like Jaime Lannister, however, it’s not.)
4. Dragon Quest
We see the picture of Drogon and Rhaegal flying over Winterfell, as included in the Arya mystery discharged in late February. This time, we see more: Jon and Daenerys investigating the Dragons’ discoveries, a copied husk of some creature. The high-flying flame breathing pair take off over vigorously snow-crusted treetops and scenes, recommending their arrival to the region past the Wall. Could Jon and Daenerys be riding on the monsters? Maybe it’s simply a recon mission — however perhaps, quite possibly, Jon and Daenerys will utilize the White Walkers entry into the land of the living as a chance to invade the kingdom of the dead, first found in the Night King’s first appearance: season four’s “Oathkeeper.” There could be something there that could help them defeat the Night King for good.
5. The Battle of Winterfell
It’s everything all through the trailer: Jon Snow charges with the experience of a man who has seen his fair share of violence. Gendry (Joe Dempsie) prepares the armory. Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and her squire Podrick Payne (Daniel Porter) stand at the front of an army, awaiting the Night King. Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) looks more terrified than ever. The Hound (Sandor Clegane) stands in the thick of his greatest fear, fire, staring off at an unseen enemy. Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) and Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) share a passionate kiss before the fight arrives. It’s all coming together.
