Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer: Why were the Greyjoys missing

Game of Thrones dropped its much-awaited official trailer on Tuesday with a number of easter eggs, teasing a bloodier, and jaw-dropping Season 8. The trailer featured almost all main characters of the series along with the Golden Company who are new to the series. Then, while I was watching the trailer again, I noticed that we didn’t see the Greyjoys at all.

This is one of the many questions that come to the mind, especially when we saw Theon Greyjoy in the last season undergoing a redemption and setting out to save his sister in the last season. While we probably saw a glimpse of their usurper uncle Euron Greyjoy along with Harry Strickland – the leader of the Golden Company in the King’s Landing Courtroom, Theon and Yara completely went on missing from the trailer.

Yet, in our in-depth analysis we acknowledged two different set of Greyjoy fleets with different Kraken-painted sails. For this we’re are cent per cent sure that the three ships down below featured in the trailer are from the fleet of Yara Greyjoy and that we will surely see Theon trying to save Yara in the new season.

Recently enough, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) were also featured in the freshly released cover images from Season 8 by Entertainment Weekly. Yet, there wasn’t any sign of Yara Greyjoy. Does this mean…?

Before we dive deep into the speculation territory we get a new update from the actress who plays the role (Gemma Whelan) that she couldn’t appear in the photo-shoots as she was pre-occu11pied with her infant. She told this to a fan via Twitter who felt sad not seeing her in any of the promotional photos. She replied:

Gemma’s reply to a fan thus, confirms that she’s surely returning in the final season of Game of Thrones. And, we pray to the Drowned Gods that Theon, who is on an expedition to rescue his sister, reaches his destination – before it’s too late!

Game of Thrones Season 8 airs in less than 40 days on April 14 and we can’t stop thinking about it since the official trailer dropped. What about you? Tell us in the comments how excited do you feel?

Emilia Clarke becomes the first ever Global Brand Ambassador for the cosmetics brand Clinique

The Game of Faces was a powerful thing in Game of Thrones. We know Arya Stark played it brilliantly in the show, showcasing the power of the faceless men. However, Daenerys Targaryen never needed to play it, as she felt omnipotent in her own skin and face. Emilia Clarke is taking that leaf out of Dany’s book, reading it to us in a lovely way. Emilia is now the first ever global brand ambassador of skincare and makeup for Clinique, which is an American dermatologist brand for skincare and cosmetics.

The actress announced her association on Instagram as well as in a brand statement:

“I am proud to join Clinique as the new Global Brand Ambassador. It’s a skincare brand I have regularly used and to now be a part of that family is such an honor. I love the confidence and happiness it brings to the people using their products. Not only is Clinique timeless, but I am proud to work with a brand that makes people feel included for who they are, and unapologetic about helping them to create great skin – no matter what their skin concern is.”

Jane Lauder, the Global Brand President for Clinique spoke on behalf of her company:

“Clinique has been a long-standing advocate for empowering woman with the knowledge that good skin can be created. We were drawn to Emilia because she is optimistic, happy in her skin, and embodies a modern multi-faceted woman who is constantly evolving along with her skincare needs. She is also an authentic user and a fan of Clinique, which was important to us. Emilia will lend her impactful voice to help inspire consumers to embrace their own unique skincare journey.”

In a behind-the-scenes chat with Jane, Clarke talked about her link with Clinique and many other things about her persona.

The company has launched a Clinique ID campaign that Emilia kick-started by choosing an ID for herself. The ID is said to be a customizable moisturizer to find a perfect product to hydrate and treat the skin in a way that suits an individual. One can choose from 20 different combinations for a variety of skin tones and types.

It’s not the first time that Clarke has associated with a beauty brand though. The English actress has also been the face of the Italian fashion brand Dolce and Gabbana’s fragrance line. Without a doubt, she is still ‘the only one.

Our beautiful Khaleesi has had a wonderful last year with a waving Game of Thrones, and films like Above Suspicion and Last Christmas. She also launched SameYou in 2019; a charity aimed at the recovery and immediate rehab of young adults from brain injuries. It’s inspired by her own story of suffering from multiple brain aneurysms.

Emilia has begun the new year putting up a face; and it seems to be a happy one. So, what do you guys think? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Rise of Empires: Ottoman tells the epic 15th-century story of Mehmed II, known as Mehmed the Conqueror, chronicling his astonishing and fabled rise from 13-year-old Child Sultan to toppling Constantinople and becoming the ruler of the Ottoman Empire.

This is going to be another feather in the cap for Dance who has been part of many memorable shows and films in the past. The series is executive produced by Sarah Wetherbee, Kelly McPherson and Emre Sahin of Karga Seven Pictures, and Jada Miranda of STXtv. As per Jada Miranda:

“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Karga Seven and Netflix to bring this cinematic story to life for audiences around the globe.”
