Game of Thrones Season 8 is just officially around four months away with it being airing in April 2019. This has got all fans including me too excited for this year as we have so much to look forward too – Stranger Things, True Detective, Game of Thrones, and much more!
Last year or let’s call it a couple of months ago we got a number of teasers for the final season including three-second-long footage, the first image on the cover of EW, an exclusive cover story with a lot of details about the opening scene, and lastly, the first teaser ‘Dragonstone’. But, HBO just released a new #HBO2019 teaser with new footage from Game of Thrones.
The three-second-long footage shows the continuation of the expected opening scene from the first episode of Season 8. I had theorised that in the last teaser the grim look on Sansa’s face meant that either Sansa is not pleased with Jon’s decision of bending the knee to Daenerys Targaryen or she has some bad news for him. Take a look at the previously released footage:
But, the new teaser points to something else entirely. Sansa much like Jon is yielding Winterfell, even the entire North to Dany. You can clearly hear her saying to Dany, “Winterfell is yours, your grace.”
Well, this seems weird and unbelievable at the first glance as we have already seen the kind of tough ruler Sansa has become over the last couple of seasons. Especially, we can recall how easily she arranged Littlefinger’s trial and had him executed for treason. Here’s another still from the footage:
There are four prominent characters in this scene: Jon Snow, Dany, Sansa, and Brienne of Tarth (she seems to have reached Winterfell earlier) surrounded by a few Stark guards and Unsullied. We can’t be more excited for some other reunions we will surely witness in this scene – Jon and Sansa, Jon and Arya, Jon and Bran, Jon and Samwell Tarly, Tyrion and Sansa, the Hound and Sansa, the Hound and Arya, and last but not the least, Arya and Gendry.
James Hibbert from Entertainment Weekly describes this scene in his own way:
“Season 8 opens at Winterfell with an episode that contains plenty of callbacks to the show’s pilot. Instead of King Robert’s procession arriving, it’s Daenerys and her army. What follows is a thrilling and tense intermingling of characters — some of whom have never previously met, many who have messy histories — as they all prepare to face the inevitable invasion of the Army of the Dead.”
Take a look at the scene below:
We now we await the first official trailer of Game of Thrones and the official airing date which is just over the horizon. So, how excited did this new footage from Game of Thrones make you? Tell us in the comments and subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more updates on the new season.

Located in Finnish Lapland near Kittilä, this hotel has been opened up by Lapland Hotels Snowvillage in collaboration with HBO Nordic. This hotel was built in just five weeks and this year, all the suites of this hotel were designed by sculptors from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland.
Equipped with a total of 16 suites – each one with a different sculpture on its wall both cosy as well as a spooky sleep with a warmer temperature of 23 degrees as compared to outside where the average temperature is nearly 10 degrees.
A bunch of other images are down here like the first one which reveals an icy tunnel entrance to the main hall batched up a number of house banners from Westeros – Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tully, and others.
An icy feast table which will remind you of Cersei Lannister’s small council – make sure they serve you some good ale and the Hound’s f*cking chickens.
Next, are the skull of Balerion the Dread, which you probably saw in Season 7 under the Red Keep and a replica of the Sept of Baelor which sadly exists no more – all thanks to the Mad Queen Cersei Lannister!
The entry fee for the snow hotel is $20 and each suite will cost you around $550 and the entries will remain open through April 21, 2019. So, how many of you would like to visit this amazing Game of Thrones-themed ice hotel of Finland? Tell us in the comments.

Well, reading French for any of us will be a difficult thing which is why Winter is Coming broke it down for all of us – a special shoutout to them! What Premiere tweeted was that HBO has revealed to them that the first two episodes of the new season will be 60 minutes long each and the final four over 80 minutes – similar to the last episode ‘The Dragon and the Wolf’ from the seventh season.
