Any Game of Thrones fan worth his/her salt would know that S08 will air in April 2019. Until then, all we can do is wait.
And lap up any tiny crumb of information HBO drops for us. It isn’t much TBH, but here’s a quick recap of what we know:
- Game of Thrones Season 8 will have only 6 episodes.
- Each episode would be longer than 60 minutes.
- The writers are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. The hopes of millions of fans rest with these gentlemen.
- The ending is “bittersweet”.
Also, there’s an all-new teaser titled: DRAGONSTONE.
We’re sure you’ll agree with us when we say, there’s isn’t any footage here! Only visual representation. Some foreshadowing, maybe? But that hasn’t stopped Netizens from dissecting each and EVERY second of it. Have a look.

2. Fire Vs. Ice
● It looks like there is a dragon glass wall being made at the Neck
● Cersei is going Mad
● Wildfire involved
● There will be a fight at the Neck.
● Wolf and Dragon froze but the Lion burned.. what does this mean?

6. Stop toying with us, HBO
I bet the @GameOfThrones account could tweet just the word "Dragons" and it would still get 100k RTs.

10. Dissecting every second of it
Same. Either that or the fire represents cersei's rein of terror. The clashing of fire and ice was pretty symbolic in a way. Seemed to form dragon glass

14. Where is the footage?
Leave it to GoT to get me so incredibly hyped without actually showing any footage of the season https://t.co/e8UBz0BwmS

15. There are no spoilers here
It’s gorgeous and creative — but I don’t really see the point of it. I’d prefer a teaser with some actual S8 footage to tease us with….

We’d love to hear your theories on the final season. What do you think will happen? Is Jon Snow really Azor Ahai? What does the Night King really want? Tell us!
