‘Game of Thrones’: Fans Are Losing It Over the Season 8 Trailer

Winter is around the corner! We are just over a month away from the final season of Game of Thrones! As a gift from the HBO gods to us for waiting patiently this long, the trailer for the new season was just dropped yesterday.

And it didn’t take long for fans to absolutely lose it and weigh in with their own theories.

The trailer opened with Arya running through Winterfell looking absolutely terrified, which left fans of the little powerhouse distaught.

“The first seconds of the trailer freaked me out so much MUST PROTECT BABY ARYA #AryaStark,” one fan tweeted.

Another person had theories on what exactly could have caused the young Stark to run like that.

“I’m trying to imagine what on earth could have terrified Arya Stark so much that it got that reaction from her.. and then it hit me... what if one of her siblings died and came back as a white walker and they’re chasing her? Like oh my f—g god what if it’s Jon,” the person wrote.

Others couldn’t take seeing their favorite Stark in such a stressful situation.

“I am not kidding, the part when Arya Stark is running for her life caused me distress that I have never experienced my whole life,” one person commented.

But that was just the beginning of the trailer. The clip went on to show both everyone’s favorite and least favorite characters.

One of the most notable moments in the trailer, was a hot kiss between budding couple Missandei and Grey Worm.

“I really hope Missandei and Grey Worm get a truer love story this season,” one fan tweeted. “They are and forever will be my fav couple on this show.”


“I don’t care what happens I just want Missandei and Grey Worm to have a happy ending,” another fan wrote.

Of course, the trailer showed fan favorite Daenerys Targaryen and her cousin/love interest Jon Snow continuing to work together, which fans couldn’t get enough of.

“Does it ever hit you that Jon and Daenerys, the most attractive and powerful man and woman of Westeros are together? Because DAMN. They stand out. THEIR BEAUTY. THEIR PRESENCE. MY WIG,” one user wrote.

But others had theories that the dragon mother’s romance with Snow could be the reason that she doesn’t take the throne.

“If you read the books you will know that Daenerys wants a family,” the person wrote.”You really think she will run off her only living family member because of a chair? Read the books and discover the great character that is Daenerys Targaryen, THE FIRST OF HER NAME.”

But perhaps one of the most significant moments in the trailer is the image of Cersei Lannister with tears in her eyes looking absolutely defeated, which led people to believe that either she dies or loses her beloved brother.

“My predictions: #GameOfThrones. Jon ends up on the throne as a Stark + Targeryen he is,” another user tweeted. “Daenerys becomes his ‘wife.’ Cersei becomes a nightwalker and probably dies. Arya becomes Hand of the King. Brandon – King of the North, Sansa Stark – Lord of Winterfell. Tyrion dies.”

We will have to wait until Apr. 14 when the final season begins to see how it all plays out.
