The premiere date announcement for Game of Thrones Season 8 was accompanied by a teaser that might have revealed a big dark secret about what’s to come in the next season.
With the official season 8 teaser, HBO has used footage made explicitly for the teaser, instead of past footage, or fresh footage that will be present in Season 8. This very likely means that it will have vital importance in the story to come. Take a look:
Things being what they are, is any of that truly going to occur in the show? The appropriate response is presumably not. In any event, not the entire thing, yet something like it most likely will. The teaser itself is directed explicitly by David Nutter, director for episode 1 of season 8, yet it feels like a mystery to see how it could fit into the episode. For example, toward the start of the teaser a feather falls as Jon strolls through, one that was initially put by King Robert on Lyanna’s tomb in the show’s first episode.
Sansa additionally discovered it amid the fourth episode of season 5, when Littlefinger discloses to her the tale of Lyanna and Rhaegar meeting at the tournament at Harrenhal, which started Robert’s Rebellion. Amid that discussion, Sansa grabbed the quill and walked away with it, which means truly shouldn’t be in the tombs for season 8.
At last, there’s the approaching danger toward the finish of the teaser. As the blue fog comes in — an unmistakable inference to the White Walkers that will definitely be the season’s biggest danger — the three Starks swing to meet it, prepared to battle. It’s the ideal picture to end a teaser with, and positions the significance of legend overwhelming uncovers in direct parallel to the skirmish of life and demise that is as yet approaching. Be that as it may, it’s hard to envision that these scenes will be perfectly connected to Season 8.
In light of that, our characters are almost confirmed to visit Winterfell’s tombs this season. As the familial burial spot of the Stark family, the Winterfell crypt is the last resting spot of Jon’s mom, Lyanna Stark (who he doesn’t know was his mom). While fans were blessed to receive Bran’s vision as a clarification of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s legitimate marriage, the characters on the show are going to require a touch of persuading and it’s imaginable they’ll set off to the crypts, and Lyanna’s tomb, looking for some hard proof.
Because of a section from A Dance With Dragons, the arrangement’s fifth book, we realize that after the fight at the Tower of Joy, Eddard Stark made a huge effort to see that his sister’s body was brought back to the crypts of Winterfell. In the event that the three Stark kids dare to the graves and analyze the tomb, it’s imaginable they’ll locate some indication of Rhaegar’s friendship — possibly his signature silver-stringed harp — which Daenerys can identify, subsequently proving Bran’s dreams right and Jon’s real identity confirmed.
In view of these disparities, alongside the way that the crypts likely hold a critical mystery for our characters, the simplest method to look at the teaser is just as it is: as a teaser, and wait for the final season to drop and show us what is what.
