Everything You Might Have Missed During The Epic Trailer For Game Of Thrones Final Season

After months and months of begging, pleading, crying and shouting, fans were finally treated to the one thing we've all been waiting for: the goddamn trailer for the final Game of Thrones season.

Sure, people want other things and some haven't even seen the series but it's fair to say a large portion of the population has wanted this video for a long time.

The near two-minute clip gave us a proper look into the last six episodes of arguably one of the best TV shows of all time.

But there is a lot to unpack in the trailer so let's go through it.

! WARNING POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD !

We first get to see Arya Stark running through what looks to be Winterfell with blood on her face.

Now, she could have just murdered someone and is darting around the place to avoid capture or it could mean something even worse: that the Walkers have managed to get into the Stark stronghold.

You hear her say: "I know death, he's got many faces," as we see Ser Davos standing with soldiers and then Varys, Gilly and her son Sam in the crypts underneath Winterfell.

That only strengthens the idea that the Walkers have ventured that far south if they're being kept there for safe keeping.

Then Arya says: "I look forward to seeing this one."

Um, no you definitely don't. It's unclear whether she's referring to the Night King (most probably) or if she's talking about other people left on her list of people to kill, ie. Cersei or The Hound.

The thing that hints towards her talking about the Night King is that she's holding a new dagger made from Dragonglass, the material that's able to easily kill Walkers.

Enough about Arya and let's get into Cersei and the sinister stuff she's planning.

She sent Euron Greyjoy, the uncle of Theon Greyjoy, to get a mercenary army that she's hoping will be able to be as good, if not better, than the Unsullied (one of Daenerys Targaryen's army).

You can see Cersei sitting in Westeros, watching her gold plated army arrive with a big ole smug face thinking she'll be able to wipe the floor with everyone.

After that, we get to see Edd, Tormund, and Beric walking through a door with a flaming sword.

While everyone assumed they would be in the final season, they were last seen running for their lives as the new zombie dragon torched The Wall, so it was left a little unclear.

Good to see they're alive and ready for action.

Bran Stark, aka the Three Eyed Raven, then says to Sam Tarly: "Everything you did brought you where you are now. Where you belong."

Sam stumbled upon some very juicy gossip about Jon Snow's parentage at the end of season seven, but he was eager to get the information out.

Maybe this means that Sam has finally reached Winterfell and warned Jon and Dany about who they really are.

Speaking of which, the next shot shows us the gross auntie and newphew couple riding together with a strong looking army, again seemingly in Winterfell, before Sansa Stark gets her first glimpse of a dragon.

Unsurprisingly, she's shocked.

We get to see a bunch of shots of everyone preparing for the biggest battle in TV and movie history as Jon says: "They're coming. Our enemy doesn't stop, doesn't tire, doesn't feel."

Literal chills right there.

The trailer cuts back to Cersei looking rather unhinged as she clutches her favourite thing in all the Seven Kingdoms: red wine (don't we all). We can't work out if that's a smile or an attempt at silencing tears.

Jamie Lannister is finally seen getting amongst the battle scenes and he's heard saying: "I promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise."

Who knows who he's saying that to but it could be to one of the Stark as he tries to convince them why they should let him in their ranks. Their families have had a bit of a rocky history, what with Jamie trying to murder Bran and all in episode one.

An awesome shot is seeing Dany and Jon approach the dragons, with many people speculating that the King of the North will actually get to ride one of the flying beasts in the season.

There are a couple more battle scene shots mixed with the only sighting of Tyrion Lannister, before easily the most chilling part of all: the two thin legs of an undead horse.

The undead are ready for battle and it's going to be one hell of a showdown.

We've been waiting for this moment for nine years and the trailer shows us that it will be well worth the wait.

April 14 can't come quick enough.
