All the main characters, an enormous battle between the dwelling and the lifeless at Winterfell, Cersei smirking and Jon Snow sulking, and a lot extra. Right here’s a break

Arya Stark seems to be terrified within the opening scene of the Recreation of Thrones season Eight trailer.
Wait. Arya Stark … terrified? She have to be preventing both a White Walker. Or maybe she’s simply seen the military of the lifeless for the primary time (uncertain, as a result of her face seems like she’s been in battle for some time). Or perhaps she simply noticed the Night time King.
Both means, it’s clear Arya is in critical hazard.
Davos Seaworth strolling alongside the battlements at Winterfell
In relation to the remainder of the trailer, this can be a low-key scene. It seems Davos will command the archers from atop Winterfell for the battle towards the military of the lifeless.
He commanded the archers within the Battle of the Bastards as properly.
Arya Stark operating on the Battle of Winterfell with dragonglass dagger
OK, now Arya is operating away from no matter she’s terrified of. So, yeah, it’s protected to say she’s in peril.
However look intently and also you’ll see that Arya is holding a dragonglass dagger. Search for her to battle a minimum of one White Walker.
Varys hiding within the Winterfell crypts with the ladies and youngsters
Varys is not any soldier. He has stated as a lot in earlier seasons.
Because the battle above rages on, Varys is seen right here within the Winterfell crypts with the ladies and youngsters.
A potential ominous signal? Melisandre advised Varys he’d die in Westeros. If he perishes within the Winterfell crypts, meaning the military of the lifeless made some critical progress within the battle above.
Arya Stark with a dragonglass dagger
You see her operating with it earlier, however they make it clear on this scene that Arya has a dragonglass dagger.
I’m unsure it’s “higher” than her Valyrian metal dagger, however we now she now has two weapons able to taking down White Walkers.
The Greyjoy fleet
Euron Greyjoy didn’t run away. It was an apparent ruse. We see him returning right here.
I’m a bit stunned there’s solely three ships, however maybe they’re coming to satisfy up with extra.
The Greyjoy fleet led by the Golden Firm
That is arguably an important scene of the trailer when it comes to giving us new info.
This scene confirms that Euron Greyjoy was profitable in “recruiting” the Golden Firm of Essos. The Golden Firm is a gaggle of promote swords — just like the Second Sons led by Daario Naharis.
Why is that this so essential? As a result of the Golden Firm is famend for by no means going again on a contract. And if Euron Greyjoy recruited the Golden Firm to struggle towards Daenerys, Jon Snow, and the remainder of the “good guys” — it means not all the dwelling will probably be buddied up this season.
And, no, that’s not Jaime Lannister main the ship. Nevertheless, it’s possible a distant Targaryen relative. The Golden Firm was based by Aegor Rivers, one among king Aegon Targaryen IV’s bastard sons.
Dolorous Edd, Beric Dondarrion, Tormund are nonetheless alive
They’re alive! This trio someway managed to outlive the collapse of the Wall, the advancing zombie military, and the undead dragon.
I’m cool with it.
Bran Stark and Sam Tarly speaking at Winterfell
The 2 brainiacs revealed R+L=J final season, they usually possible aren’t completed dropping information bombs on us in Season Eight.
Maybe that is the scene the place Bran reveals to Jon Snow that Jon is definitely a Targaryen.
Cersei, Qyburn, The Mountain, and the Queensguard
Cersei is all the time smirking and plotting. It’s not clear the place she’s standing or what she’s doing right here, however she has her complete Queensguard — decked out in black outfits and led by the Mountain — behind her.
Maybe that is her in Blackwater Bay on the shores of King’s Touchdown welcoming the Greyjoy fleet and the Golden Firm.
Jon Snow and Dany Targaryen arrive at Winterfell
That is doubtless one of many very first scenes of the complete season.
It’s no shock however fascinating nonetheless to see them driving collectively side-by-side like a king and queen couple surrounded by their military.
Sansa Stark sees dragons for the primary time at Winterfell
Sansa might not take too properly to Jon ceding the north to Daenerys Targaryen, however even she will’t assist however be amazed on the sight of dragons for the primary time.
The harmless, naive Sansa is lengthy gone, however it’s fairly cool to see her face crammed with marvel once more, even when just for a second.
Jon Snow and Dany Targaryen within the crypts at Winterfell
This scene in all probability occurs simply after Jon, Dany, and crew arrive again at Winterfell. Or perhaps it’s after Bran tells Jon who he actually is, and Jon involves the crypts to go to his mom (Lyanna Stark).
Daenerys has a really tender look on her face on this brief scene, additional indicating that she does absolutely love Jon Snow. If that is after it’s revealed that Jon Snow has a stronger declare to the throne than Daenerys, then perhaps she gained’t be as crushed as we expect.
Gendry with the blacksmiths in Winterfell
Gendry is with the blacksmiths turning the heaps of dragonglass into precise weapons to battle the military of the lifeless.
Keep in mind, Gendry was top-of-the-line blacksmiths in King’s Touchdown. It’s superior to see him in his aspect as soon as once more.
See Jorah Mormont within the Battle for Winterfell
This seems to be to be outdoors the gates of Winterfell, so it’s attainable this can be a shot from the precise battle (moderately than a pre-battle shot).
Mormont continues to be on his horse and searching into the space — maybe on the arriving military of the lifeless.
Gray Worm and Missandei earlier than the Battle for Winterfell
The couple share a kiss earlier than the battle begins. There’s actually nothing else to breakdown from this scene.
It’s unclear is Missandei will go to the crypts with Varys and the remainder of the ladies and youngsters, or if she is going to keep outdoors however not on the frontlines — maybe alongside somebody like Tyrion.
Brienne of Tarth preventing the military of the lifeless
Simply the perfect split-second clip of the complete trailer is Brienne of Tarth viciously chopping by means of zombies, silhouetted towards a firefly background.
The very subsequent clip exhibits…
Jaime Lannister preventing at Winterfell
Jaime Lannister is clearly concerned within the battle as properly. The fires are burning behind him right here.
Does he workforce up with Brienne as soon as once more, this time to struggle on the identical workforce?
Cersei Lannister sips wine – is she pleased, unhappy, or each?
Ah, the notorious Cersei Lannister sipping wine with a mysterious look on her face scene.
In all seriousness, that is probably the most cryptic scene within the trailer. Lena Headey completely crushes the appearing on this brief scene. She seems glad each glad and unhappy on the similar time.
Is she studying of the dying of a beloved one?
Extra dragons flying within the snowy north
Arya Stark sees dragons for the primary time
We acquired a shot of Sansa seeing the dragons for the primary time, and right here’s a shot of Arya getting a glimpse as properly.
That is undoubtedly one of many first scenes. Discover that she has her Valyrian metal dagger in her sheath, and we all know from the trailer she finally ends up with a dragonglass dagger afterward.
Gray Worm prepares to steer the Unsullied into battle
The chosen chief of the Unsullied leads the military into battle towards their hardest enemy but.
Let’s hope it’s not his final.
Jon Snow on the weirwood coronary heart tree in Winterfell
The Winterfell coronary heart tree is immediately tied to the Stark household. One of many earliest scenes of all the Recreation of Thrones collection is Ned Stark in entrance of this tree, and there are numerous different necessary scenes in entrance of this actual tree.
Is that this the place Jon goes after studying he’s truly a Targaryen (and Stark, in a method, due to Lyanna).
The Hound subsequent to fireside on the battle for Winterfell
This can be a nice shot of the Hound in half the display and hearth — the one factor he fears — within the different half.
How will he fare within the battle at Winterfell, contemplating that the trailer makes it obvious that fireplace might be all over the place?
Jaime Lannister pleads his case to struggle for the dwelling
Oh, how far we’ve come since season 1.
Right here we’re, watching Jaime Lannister say: “I promised to battle for the dwelling. I intend to maintain that promise.”
The “Kingslayer” nickname was given to him with equal elements reverence and disgrace for breaking an oath. He has shed that stigma.
Regardless of Jaime’s destiny within the battle, this line alone is proof that Jaime’s redemption arc has come full circle.
Jon Snow operating into battle towards the military of the lifeless
The hearth seems to be fairly far behind him on this scene. Is it potential he’s far out within the area away from Winterfell, heading towards a one-on-one battle with the Night time King himself?
Winterfell troopers operating via the gates
This scene comes proper after Jon Snow dashing into battle. It virtually appears like Jon is main this group, however that may’t be the case as a result of no one is behind Jon in his scene.
It’s extra doubtless this can be a group of random troopers operating again via Winterfell’s gates halfway via the battle, however that additionally would imply they’re retreating.
Will Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen each experience dragons?

That is the shot everyone seems to be speaking about, and for good purpose.
The dragons have clearly simply burned one thing — we see ash and bones beneath them — as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen strategy them.
Will they journey the dragons? Will they merely pet them? Maybe Jon Snow and Daenerys know that Jon is a Targaryen at this level.
Additionally, Drogon is large.
Sansa Stark reacts to seeing Dany’s dragons
I don’t know for positive if this is identical scene after Sansa sees the dragons for the primary time, however that’s my greatest guess.
She has a plotting look on her face, and her unease with Daenerys Targaryen coming to Winterfell as a queen moderately than a guess is more likely to be a focus of the political showdown this season.
Arya Stark preventing within the Battle for Winterfell
Arya’s fast battle scene right here is superior. She exhibits up in her first main battle within the Recreation of Thrones collection.
Apparently, she’s not utilizing both of her daggers on this scenes. Nevertheless, she did fairly a bit of coaching within the Home of White and Black with a employees, so it’s not a shock to see her tackle a number of enemies with a bigger weapon right here.
Tyrion Lannister wanting up (dragons?)
That is the one scene of Tyrion in all the trailer. He’s wanting up — in all probability at dragons, as a result of they’re in all places within the trailer.
Have been his scenes have been too necessary to point out, or does he not have that many scenes? We hope it’s the primary.
Shot of Dany Targaryen wanting solemn
That is possible Daenerys reacting to the information that Jon Snow is definitely a) her nephew and b) the rightful inheritor.
That, or it’s her reacting to the information or realization that Viserion has been resurrected the battle for the Night time King.
Drogon respiration hearth as a result of dragons
See ya later, group of zombies.
Brienne prepares for battle, with the Vale of Arryn fighters behind her
Brienne is on the frontlines because the dwelling put together to struggle the lifeless.
Notably, the troopers behind her are from the Vale of Arryn. The Vale was at Winterfell on the finish of season 7, however that was as a result of Littlefinger was there, and he was technically their chief.
Even after Littlefinger’s dying, it seems the Vale of Arryn stick round to assist the Starks and battle the lifeless.
Ser Jorah sees the military of the lifeless once more
He was there when the band of brothers went north in season 7 to seize the wight, so he’s seen all of it earlier than.
The Night time King and the military of the lifeless arrive at Winterfell
I’m not completely positive that is the Night time King — wouldn’t he be driving the dragon as an alternative of a horse? — so it’s extra doubtless that this can be a White Walker.
In any occasion, this scene exhibits the military of the lifeless arriving at Winterfell’s doorstep.
It’s about to go down.
