HBO is really amping up the Game of Thrones Season 8 promotions. They went from taking a long, long time to drop the Season 8 trailer, to dropping teasers at the rate of almost 1 per day for the last three days. The brand new teaser dropped today is called “Aftermath“, and it’ll guaranteed to add to your Season 8 worries. Read on!
HBO began this rampage by dropping a teaser to reignite the hype, followed by one teasing a much anticipated reunion. Now HBO seems to have gone all out and warned us with a teaser showing what’s coming for us. Check it out:
Now, we know there’s a big battle that will happen at Winterfell, when the Army of the Dead goes up against the living one. We have heard reports that say that this battle is likely to leave Winterfell burnt to the ground.
It’s going to be in the third episode of Season 8, being directed by Miguel Sapochnik. It’s safe to say we’ll lose a large chunk of characters to this battle. This teaser shows the Longclaw in the snow, laced with blood, hinting that Jon Snow might have been hurt, if not killed. The aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell.
And then comes the scare, a figure in the background, walking at the pace of a Wight. It looks like Jon Snow, and the “Aftermath” might be hinting at him becoming a wight.
Of course, it’s possible he’s still alive here, or that it’s not actually Jon. It’s also possible this footage is actually not from Season 8, but specifically shot for the teaser, just like the Crypts of Winterfell teaser.
