HBO's most loved fantasy-drama TV series Game of Thrones is set to return to our screens and by the recently-released teaser, we have to be prepared to witness the greatest war on April 14. While we already know that Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark will be meeting for the first time in the upcoming season, we’re still yet to figure out what will happen when the Army of the Dead hit the lands of the living!
Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on April 14th, 2018
In the first teaser, we see the three Stark siblings: Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark walking through the crypts beneath Winterfell. In the background, we hear the voices of their dead parents and aunt, Catelyn Stark, Ned Stark and Lyanna Stark as they pass their statues.
Finally, the three stand before their own statues in a moment of shock. They look petrified by what appears to be the oncoming onslaught of the White Walkers. And the teaser ends with Arya and Jon drawing their swords as they gear up for a deadly fight!
In the seventh season, Sansa met Jon, Bran and Arya. Aryan met Bran but she’s yet to meet Jon Snow. Keep in mind that he is the one who gifted her Needle, the sword. One can only image how Jon and Arya would meet after all these years of estrangement. Moreover, Bran met Samwell Tarly, who somewhere cleared every doubt regarding Jon’s parentage, that in fact he is not a complete Stark as he believes himself to be, but is half Stark and half Targaryen.
According to HBO, the final season will feature six lengthy episodes, promising never-before-seen grandeur and gore.
