Watch The Trailer For The Final Episode Of Game Of Thrones


Here we go then. After years in the making and eight seasons, we're down to just one singular episode of Game of Thrones to go. Check out the teaser trailer before we get into it.

Obviously, there are still quite a few significant loose ends to be tied up.

We've no idea who is going to sit on the Iron Throne at the end of all this madness - does it even matter anymore?

After the events of episode five, what is there left to rule over? Daenerys Targaryen used her one remaining dragon, Drogon, to eviscerate and incinerate every single part of King's Landing.

By the time they were finished nearly everyone seemed to be dead, and much of the capital of Westeros was no longer standing.

It's been coming for a while now, but Dany finally inherited the 'Mad Queen' title that seems to have been in the post to her for quite a while now.

What is there left for her, anyway? She seems to have forsaken all counsel and burned anyone who tried to offer it to her. She's got Tyrion Lannister still, but she hasn't trusted his advice for a while now.

A lot of his recent advice has been uncharacteristically bad, in her defence.

As we survey the scene left for us after the War of the Queens became a rather one-sided war between one woman and her own sanity, in which there were no winners, it almost feels a bit pointless that a ruler must be chosen, but that's sort of why everyone is still here.

Tyrion can be seen looking - probably justifiably - terrified. Jon looks pretty damn worried too. Arya is skulking around still, which is interesting.

Imagine spurning the advances of a woman who can sack an entire city using only her own cruelty and a gigantic dragon.

Nobody needs that kind of relationship.

Let's not forget that the catalyst - or at least one of the catalysts - for this was Jon realising that he can't be with Dany anymore.

She's his aunt, for Christ's sake. Not that it matters to her anymore.

Anyway, the short and pensive trailer tells us very little other than that an ill wind is blowing through what remains of King's Landing.

Exactly what that wind is gonna blow through, we'll have to wait and see.
