HBO released a trailer on Sunday night, giving fans a sneak peek at some of the major shows returning and debuting in 2019 and OMG we’re finally getting a Game of Thrones sneak peek. The shot is only a few seconds long, but it’s enough time to see Jon Snow make introductions between his sister and his aunt-lover.
The first look at the end of Game of Thrones (we’re not ready) shows Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, and lover of nephews meeting Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Queen in the North. Um, and badass Ginger? The titles feel very uneven.
The meeting takes place at Winterfell, which means that Jon finally makes it home and hopefully (HOPEFULLY!) we finally get to see a reunion between Jon and little sister Arya. We’re already hydrating in anticipation of the tears.
The trio’s meeting is short, but the new teaser gives us enough time to hear Sansa say to Dany, “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace.”
Ooooooo. Was there a tone? We feel like there was a tone. Do we really think Sansa is going to hand over the North that easily? Nuh uh. White walkers be damned, the best showdown in Season 8 could be between Dany and Sansa. Throw in Cersei and that will be the battle to end all battles.
The new teaser also includes Brienne Of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), who can’t be killed. Honestly, just give this man the Throne. He’s survived more than anyone on the show.
The trailer aired during this year’s Golden Globes, a fitting placement considering next year’s award show will likely be dominated by HBO. Veep. Big Little Lies. True Detective. Game of Motherfreaking Thrones. Clear your schedule, because HBO is about to own 2019.
Season 8 of Game of Thrones is set to premiere in April. You can watch Seasons 1 to 7 of Game of Thrones now on Crave.
