Game Of Thrones Season 8's Haunting New Trailer Is Packed With Hidden Clues

Winter is definitely here.


The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones finally starts this month, and HBO is keeping the promos coming. Following the two new teasers released earlier this week, we have another new video. It's titled "Aftermath," and it takes a more abstract and haunting approach than those more traditional trailers.

The video showcases the deserted snowswept streets of Winterfell. There are no characters or dialogue, but it does feature the possessions of key Game of Thrones characters, most buried in the show. These include Tyrion's Hand of the King pin, Arya's needle, Bran's wheelchair, Jaime's golden hand, Lyanna's feather, Dany's dragon chains, and Jon's Longclaw. What can it all mean? Check the trailer above and let us know in the comments below.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres on April 14, with the remaining five episodes coming each week until mid-May. While there are only six episodes, they combine for a total of 432 minutes of runtime, or around 7.2 hours. Here's a full breakdown of each episode's premiere date and runtime.

The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 was released in March. It focuses on setting up the the epic battle against the Night King and his army of the dead at Winterfell--for more insight, check out GameSpot's trailer breakdown.

Game of Thrones is ending, but a prequel is on the way, with X-Men: First Class' Jane Goldman serving as a showrunner for a story developed with series creator George RR Martin. The show is expected to start filming early this summer.
