And we’ve got questions. And answers. And feelings? Yes, especially feelings. We’ve got a lot of those.
Maybe the first and most important one is fear. Can anyone make it out of this alive? We didn’t exactly go into Game of Thrones expecting happily ever after, but we’d like some sort of …you know, satisfaction? Is that too much to ask of season 8? Some happiness before the end? The reunions we’ve waiting for? Some good tears?
This trailer makes it seem like it might just be. Everyone, and with that I mean absolutely everyone, looks like they’re going through some serious shit, and like more shit is coming their way. Except Cersei, who looks way too smug or her own good – a bad sign, to be sure. Game of Thrones has, after all, shown us that the more you think you’re on top and in control, the least likely you are to remain there.
I mean, we’re pretty sure ‘and they all died’ is unlikely to be the ending, so it might be time to start placing our actual bets. Who lives, who dies, who tells the tale? We’ll find out soon.
For now, check out the trailer below and join us in the feels.
How are you feeling after that? Terrified? Excited? Come share your thoughts, and of course, theories, in the comments below!
Game of Thrones returns to HBO with season 8 on April 14th, at 9/8c.
