The Battle of Winterfell Aftermath & More Teased in 'Game of Thrones' Promos (VIDEO)


Game of Thrones teases the aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell in a new promo for its final season.

The HBO series released a teaser Tuesday that appeared to hint at trouble to come for Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in Season 8.

The promo begins by showing a worn Stark direwolf banner as sounds of battle are heard in the background. The scene cuts to the Stark castle of Winterfell lying in snowy ruin.

Later scenes show the entrance to the Stark crypt, Tyrion Lannister's (Peter Dinklage) Hand of the Queen pin and the feather Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) placed on Lyanna Stark's statue in Season 1.

In addition, the teaser shows Jamie's golden hand on the ground before ending with a shot of Jon's sword Longclaw lying bloody in snow. A shadowy figure can be seen approaching the sword in the background.

Game of Thrones will also feature a long-awaited reunion between Jon and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) in its final season. The show released two other promos Monday featuring Jon, Arya and other characters in Season 8.

The promo "Survival" shows Jon standing in front of the heart tree in the godswood at Winterfell as Arya looks on. The pair, who grew up as half-siblings, haven't seen each other since Season 1.

"Think back to where we started. Now it's just us," Jon says in the clip. "Need to end this war."

Another promo, "Together," shows Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) urging people to fight together against the Night King and his army. Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) can be seen in the background.

"We must fight together now. Or die," Tyrion says.

"Our enemy doesn't tire. Doesn't stop," Jon adds in another scene. "They're coming."

Game of Thrones will return for an eighth and final season April 14 on HBO. Turner likened the show's impending end to a "death in the family" in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K.

"I'm just coming to terms with it right now, it's like a death in the family," the actress said. "I'm losing the character I've played so long."
