  • A new teaser for the final season suggests there’s a bloodbath

Cersei Lannister, however, was still safe in the south of Westeros with Jaime deserting her and riding up north.

Game of Thrones season 8, which is the final season of the popular HBO show, has received its first teaser. Disappointingly, the video doesn't actually contain any new footage. This isn't surprising, as the HBO series is based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, but there is clearly more than one implication of this preview.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. The dragon also freezes, not exactly sure what that's implying, unless the White Walkers snag another one of Daenerys' babies. But the story of Game of Thrones has always been about fire and ice, be it White Walkers and Targaryens, or aunts and nephews who may unite the kingdom by being in accidentally incestuous relationships.

Winter may be well and truly behind us, but come next year, we'll be getting a winter the likes of which we've never seen. Meanwhile, a Lannister lion - backed by fire - spreads its flames northward, until the opposing forces meet in a violent clash.

Indeed, the wealth of knowledge GoT fans may not have even been aware of until now is deep and fascinating, and it includes a ton of easter eggs, hitherto unknown revelations, and secrets that had only been speculated about before.
