Fans are beside themselves after new 'Game of Thrones' teaser shows Jon and Arya together

HBOJon Snow and Arya Stark together on the first season of ‘Game of Thrones.’
  • HBO’s latest “Game of Thrones”season eight promo video features Jon Snow, Arya, and Sansa together.
  • This is the first time fans have seen Jon and Arya in the same room since the first season.
  • Jon gifted Arya her sword, Needle, and now the new teasers shows both grown-up Stark kids drawing their swords to fight the coming cold.
  • People are, understandably, emotional.
  • This isn’t actual season eight footage, though, so the true reunion is still to come.

Nearly eight years ago, the second-ever “Game of Thrones” episode aired and Jon Snow gifted his beloved little sister Arya a sword, “Needle.” Now, in a new HBO teaser for the coming eighth and final season, Jon and Arya are back together at Winterfell.

Though the footage is for promotional purposes, and not an actual scene from the coming six episodes, fans were still thrilled to see Jon and his little sister (well, technically cousin) in the same place. The two walked in the Winterfell crypts, alongside Sansa, until they reached three statues of themselves. While this is a foreboding sign, we shouldn’t take it as a hint that all three Starks will die in the coming war.

Instead, this tableau of the Winterfell crypts with the creeping White Walker cold is likely meant to show us the theme of the coming season. The Starks, reunited again in the North, will have to rise against the Night King and his army. Winter is here, the dead are on the doorstep, and fans can barely contain themselves with excitement.

Just seeing Jon and Arya together was enough to open the floodgates.

Things got even more emotional when they both turned in a protective stance in front of Sansa.

We’ll have to wait for the final episodes to see the real Jon and Arya reunion, but in the meantime this is a satisfying fix. The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” begins Sunday, April 14.
