Praise be to every god or goddess of Westeros (and beyond, what the hell): today we got the long-awaited trailer for Season 8 of Game of Thrones! You know what this means…over-analyzing every frame down to the last pixel and some wild speculation to boot!!
As we’ve done with every shred of new material this offseason, The Night’s Cast, the official podcast of Watchers on the Wall, couldn’t wait to jump on the trailer and discuss what these spare two minutes can tell us — and there’s a lot, from the visually enticing bits (Dragons over Winterfell! An epic battle! The sky lit by fire!) to the potential for emotional elation and devastation alike (Jon probably rides a dragon! A lot of our favorites are in mortal danger! Jaime is fighting for the Good Guys!). Join Lady Geoffrey, Vanessa and Samantha as they break down everything they can about the trailer (and throw in some discussion about the EW cover shots and portraits)!
