Winterfell is a snow-filled ruin.
The latest teaser for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones , designation “Aftermath, ” presents an ominous look at what appears to be the aftermath of a battle at Winterfell. Vacant of human life, snow is piling up in the home of the Starks as we appreciate wreckage and weapons laying about, including the golden side of Jaime Lannister and Jon Snow’s sword.
Right at the end, though, loitering about Snow’s sword in the palace gate, is a shadowy figure. Evaluating by the condition, it’s plausible that this is the Night King.
Whether this is an omen of what’s to come or just nonsensical hype, dark periods lay ahead.
Game of Thrones returns April 14.
