HBO has debuted the first teaser trailer for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. Unfortunately for spoiler-hungry fans, this teaser doesn’t feature any actual footage from the season, instead providing a bleak look at the fate of Westeros as the forces of ice and fire sweep across the land.
Even without a good look at the surviving heroes and villains of the franchise, this trailer could wind up revealing quite a bit about upcoming events on the series, given that the creative team is pretty meticulous about including clues and foreshadowing in the series. And, since we still have a long wait until Game of Thrones returns in April, we figured we’d kill some time by completely overthinking and overanalyzing the 30-second video. With that in mind, here are all the interesting clues and theories we came up with after seeing this brief teaser – are we way off base, or could we be onto something?
