We’ve had the season eight character posters for almost a month now, but not the one true poster that represents the final season of Game of Thrones. And now it’s here!
As you can see, very much like the “#ForTheThrones” marketing campaign, the poster goes for the titular “game of thrones” as its theme, despite the story having distinctly gone in the opposite direction of “if we don’t put away our enmities and band together we will die, and then it won’t matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne,” as the great Davos Seaworth so perfectly put it last season. Nevertheless, it makes thematic sense overall, as this is the last season of a show titled “Game of Thrones.” Also, considering the first season’s similarly throne-themed marketing, it makes the show come full circle—except now with an added Drogon peering at us from below.
Yoy may wish to revisit the posters for seasons one, two, three, four, five, six, and seven, for the sake of comparison. Which is your favorite, or least favorite? Do you have a ranking? Personally, I’m partial for the first two seasons’ posters, as well as the ones from seasons seven and eight, while seasons three and four were definitely the nadir.
