HBO shared 14 pictures from the up and coming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones and the photos gave something to the fans to chew on until the show returns in April.
The new pictures include popular characters like Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Arya, Sansa and Bran Stark, Cersei, Tyrion and Jaime Lannister, and that’s just the beginning.
As usual, fans have started diving deep to find out any hidden details in the photos and couple of fans on Twitter have shared that Jaime’s new armour looks like Robb Stark’s, who died in season 3. The breastplate and the pauldrons look particularly like Robb’s.
Is it just me or is Jaime's armour very reminiscent of Robb Starks, particularly the breastplate & pauldrons. And I like how he's no longer in lavish Lannister armour, he's dressed for a real, gritty battle and I'm loving it! #GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/hdfBWlj0mT

“Is it just me or is Jaime’s armour very reminiscent of Robb Starks, particularly the breastplate & pauldrons. And I like how he’s no longer in lavish Lannister armour, he’s dressed for a real, gritty battle and I’m loving it,” wrote a fan on Twitter. Others straight up began screaming: “JAMIE LANNISTER FIGHTS FOR THE NORTH. HE FIGHTS FOR THE NORTH”.
The last time we saw Jaime, he was en route up north to join Jon and Daenerys in the war and leave his manipulative sister/sweetheart Cersei behind.
Maybe, in the new season, he was greeted into Winterfell wholeheartedly and even given some Stark armour to battle the approaching adversary.
In the new pictures, Jaime’s sibling Tyrion is also present in Winterfell. Fans are anxious to watch the two siblings battle on a similar side against the White Walkers.
Take a look at some of the fan reactions after the photos were released by HBO:
