HBO released the long-awaited trailer for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones‘ and it will leave fans of the show on the edge of their seat.
The trailer begins in an ominous way. “I know death. It’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one,” Arya says as she is seen running from an unknown force.
According to EW, Season 8 will open with Daenerys and her army arriving at Winterfell. It appears that the biggest battle is to be fought, as Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, Tyrion Lannister and Brienne of Tarth fight for their lives. The reunion of John and Arya is key to the trailer, as the two have not met since Jon left for the Night’s Watch in Season 1.
But be aware. “They’re coming. Our enemy doesn’t tire. Doesn’t stop. Doesn’t feel,” Jaime Lannister’s voice can be heard saying in the trailer. “I promise to fight for the living an I intend to keep that promise.”
While HBO has pretty much kept the story line under wraps, the network does ask the question, “For seven seasons you’ve watched characters lie, bleed, and sacrifice for the Iron Throne. As the final season approaches, only one question remains: How far will you go?”
Only time will tell. Until then, Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 14 on HBO.
