Titled “Dragonstone,” the brief (54 seconds) promo already has die-hards wondering what, exactly, it means.
Here’s what we see: A front of frost washes over the land like a wave, enveloping a Wolf statue, then moving on to a Dragon figure as it heads straight for an oncoming wall of fire. The fire engulfs a big Lion statue, and as the two forces – fire and ice – meet (think plate tectonics) they push up some sort of border-like wall or spine, possibly made of the Dragonstone of the title.
Then: “The Final Season. April 2019”.
Writes one YouTube speculator: “I’m guessing this means that the Stark and Targaryen force are pushed back to the Neck, and Cersei maybe goes full Mad Queen this season and uses the Wildfire on a bigger scale.”
As good a theory as any. Take a look above and let us know what you think.
HBO recently confirmed the April launch date for the eighth and final season, and tweeted a brief promo featuring footage from seasons 1-7. HBO previously revealed that the final episode was shot over 55 nights in three locations. Check out that clip below.
