It really is brilliant promo, HBO, I’ll give you that. Not everyone can make it out of Season 8 of Game of Thrones live, we’ve known that for a while, so there’s bound to be disappointment. BUT, if you make the promo about how EVERYONE is going to die, then people will be relived when some actually do survive.
Reverse psychology and all that.
The fact that I recognize this is what you’re trying to do doesn’t mean it’s not working, no. It kinda is. So kudos to you, HBO. Kudos.
Here’s the teaser trailer that bodes badly for all of our favorites, titled “Aftermath”:
That, of course, because HBO is nothing if good at twisting the knife, came with it’s own poster, which you can see here:

You crying yet? Because I’ve got more stuff for you!
Here’s another teaser, titled “Together,” that makes us think that, at the very least, we’ll get some good stuff before the inevitable bittersweet ending:
And here’s one more, titled “Survival,” which shows JON AND ARYA TOGETHER IN THE SAME SPACE.
Are you scared? Excited? How are you feeling about what’s coming our way starting next weekend? Because I’m both super excited to see it and absolutely terrified. Like, I’m not asking for a fully on happy ending, but a little bit of hope would be good. How about you? Share with us in the comments below!
