What the Game of Thrones season 8 teaser really means

HBO released an epic teaser for the 8th and final season of “Game of Thrones.” We look at all the hidden meanings, Easter eggs to break down everything, including what even the biggest “Game of Thrones” fans might have missed. In the teaser we hear from Ned Stark, who died in season 1, his wife Catelyn Stark, who died in season 3, and Lyanna Stark, who we learned is Jon Snow’s mother. We also see siblings Jon, Arya, and Sansa reuniting beneath the crypts of Winterfell.

The teaser seems to hint at the fact that the three will unite in season 8, but it also may suggest a terrible fate for all three characters.

As the drama surrounding the Iron Throne unfolds, the teaser hints at the coming battle against the Wights and White Walkers. The biggest mystery, though, might be the feather we see in the beginning and end of the teaser. We break down exactly what it means.

Game of Thrones will return April 14, 2019.
