Game of Thrones releases new photos from Season 8 Episode 1

Game of Thrones is returning this April with less than 11 days for its premiere. We’ve been so far treated with the official trailer, a bunch of new promos and footages along with a spooky official teaser that portrays all major characters dead. But, though HBO tries to propel us in that direction yet we can’t ship all the major characters dying. Then, to lighten up our mood a bit HBO recently released a bunch of new promo photos via the express. Let’s have a look and analyse what each one means.

There are a lot of expectations from the first episode of the eight season – the reveal of Jon Snow’s parentage, a number of reunions, and much more. The new promotional photos from the episode seem to be pointing at the same. Starting off from King’s Landing, we can see Cersei Lannister and her hand Qyburn in the Throne room. They are perhaps addressing Euron Greyjoy and Harry Strickland from Golden Company.

Next, are two images of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen perhaps just before making their way to Winterfell. Jon seems to be showing his home to his love interest/aunt-in-disguise from a distance.

Next, are a few glimpses from Daenerys and crew’s arrival to Winterfell. Starting off with a still of Daenerys who seems to be standing next to Jon – you can tell from his furry cloak. You can also see Tyrion Lannister and Missandei in the background.

Up next are the Starks. Sansa Stark seems to be all ready to give Daenerys and Jon a warm welcome with Bran Stark and Brienne of Tarth by her side.

Next still among the promo photos is of Jorah Mormont and Ser Davos Seaworth – the trustees of Dany and Jon standing together, followed by a still of Jorah and Dany.

Up next are Jon and Daenerys together. I’m not sure if these two are standing together during the opening scene or in a later shot standing over the Winterfell Battlements.

Next shot is of a spider seated in a cart. I mean, literally Lord Varys in a cart on his way to Winterfell.

Next, are a number of photos of Winterfell Great Hall where you can find a bunch of characters like Lyanna Mormont, Tyrion, Ser Davos, Yohn Royce, Brienne of Tarth, and Dany.

Next, are two stills of Jorah and Daenerys in what appears to be a room full of scrolls and books. Perhaps this is Sansa’s room or Samwell Tarly or Bran’s room. But, I can’t still figure out the purpose of them being there perhaps to have a discussion.

The final shot in the promo photos that interests me a lot is of Sansa Stark – the Lady of Winterfell in a brand new armour, perhaps from Episode 2. This is the armour that she was talking about in a couple of previous interviews.  Her armour actually seems to have derived or taken reference from Arya Stark – lady you really need to stop copying traits!

So, what were your thoughts on these brand new promotional photos? How excited are you for the final season of Game of Thrones?

Game Of Thrones Season 8 airs on 14th April, 9 PM in USA and on Hotstar at the same time, which translates to a Monday, 15th April, 6:30 am IST stream for the Indian fans.

“lady you really need to stop copying traits!” – A few notes: Jon Snow styles himself EXACTLY as Ned Stark styled himself, yet receives no criticism for it. Dany’s manner of dress changes dramatically from her time in Pentos (where she wears a flimsy, sheer dress, much like a bedslave might wear) to the Dothraki sea (when she wears Dothraki leathers) to Slaver’s Bay (when she wears the blue and white flowing fabrics of merchants and rulers in Essos) to Dragonstone (where she adopts the black and red of her house) to Winterfell (white and grey fur everywhere!)–she adapts her… Read more »

The cast of Game of Thrones bid an emotional goodbye to the fans

Game-of-Thrones-The-Cast-Signs-Off-HBO

Eight seasons and nine years later, Game of Thrones has finally come to an end. One of the biggest reasons it became the cultural behemoth that it is today is its incredible cast and the way they brought the characters to life. They made us laugh, cry, fear for their lives, and cheer for them through their victories and defeats.

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

HBO has now released a video with the stars signing off and it is giving all of us some major, major feels.

This video is a thank you note to the viewers who made the show such a massive cultural entity and kept it going throughout the years. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), John Bradley (Samwell), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Maisie Williams (Arya), and Sophie Turner (Sansa) all acknowledged how the fandom’s love kept them inspired to do better.

Emilia talked about how the show became her identity, while Gwendoline and Kristofer spoke about how fortunate they felt to be so loved by the fans. Sophie and Maisie admitted they never imagined that the show would become so big. And finally, Isaac acknowledged that it was the fandom’s excitement about the show – the intense discussions, theories, viewing parties – that kept them going.

Watch the video below:

But, as Kristofer points out, “everything has an end, even Game of Thrones”. Here’s wishing the wonderful cast great futures ahead!
