Game of Thrones Trailer Breakdown: Every Clue We Spotted in the New Season 8 Footage

This trailer breakdown contains plot details, theories, and potential spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, so if you want to go into the final season completely Unsullied, turn back now.

The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 is here, and given how stingy the showrunners are about spoilers, it might be our best look at the upcoming final season before the premiere on April 14.

Not only does the trailer confirm that three MIA characters will return for the final six episodes, it also potentially introduces a new character, Harry Strickland, who could turn the tide for Cersei in her quest to beat Daenerys and Jon.

Click through the gallery below or watch the video above to check out every clue we spotted, and our potential theories for what we might see in Season 8.

While certain major players aren’t featured in the new footage, the executive producers and editors are masters (or should we say maesters?) at misdirects at this stage of the game, so we imagine there’s an awful lot about the final season that’s still being kept under wraps. Judging by past trailers, we wouldn’t be surprised if the scenes shown in this sizzle reel are taken solely from the first two or three episodes of the final season, leaving the last three episodes completely unspoiled. We’ll find out when Season 8 debuts in just over a month.

For more on Game of Thrones Season 8, check out our breakdown of all the characters confirmed for the Battle of Winterfell, which will reportedly be the “longest consecutive battle sequence ever committed to film,” and will feature the showdown between Jon and Daenerys’ forces and the Night King’s White Walker army, and see why we think Season 8 might finally give us Cleganebowl.
