HBO drops first teaser of Season 8

Kit Harrington in 'Game of Thrones' Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire
Herman Weaver | 07 December, 2018, 09:32

The creators of Game of Thrones have released a teaser for the final season of the cult show and it has sent fans into meltdown. This isn't surprising, as the HBO series is based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, but there is clearly more than one implication of this preview.

Old trailers compiled footage from previous seasons, but this one is fairly straightforward; it shows a chill creeping into Westeros, freezing everything in sight (including a dragon), while fire fights it from the South.

"Game of Thrones" returns with six final episodes in April 2019. It's a tease of a battle brewing between Dany, the North, the Lannisters, and the Night King we expect to occur next season.

All good? Let's point out a few things you may have noticed. In the season finale past year, the Night King rode on the undead dragon Viserion as he broke down a section of the wall with the White Walker army marching down south. Fire engulfs a lion figure (a nod to House Lannister), and at the end of the clip, the two elements clash in the middle, likely representing a pretty epic battle in the series' final season.

New test can detect all types of cancer within minutes
If DNA from cancer cells is then added, it sticks to the nanoparticles in such a way that the water retains its original colour. Additionally, the research was supported by a National Breast Cancer Foundation grant to advance cancer diagnosis testing.


Kit Harington stars as Jon Snow on the HBO hit series "Game of Thrones".

As pointed out by our own Kim Renfro, "GoT" composer Djawadi Ramin's "Winter is Here", from the season seven finale, can be heard in the teaser. There, they premiered a new lovely teaser for the final season.
