Game of Thrones Season 8 Trailer Reaction & Review

Or twice. Or 10 times.

Winter is truly coming ... fair to say, it's nearly here.

It's cool. We feel the same.

If it's not already obvious, we're going to be spoiling all of Game of Thrones so far, as well as what's in this trailer. Several of the video's shots (Jon at the weirwood, those dragons spiraling through the Northern skies) are outright gorgeous.

Aboard one of the ships is her brother Jaime, last seen in the season seven finale apparently deserting her.

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 premieres Sunday, April 14 on HBO.

"Nothing can prepare you for how physically draining it is", said Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, while on set past year. What we did not get to see was a proper glimpse of The Night King and the now evil dragon Viserion, who stole the show in the last season. Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) makes a courageous promise not to fight for the frigid zombie boys, while his sister and incestuous squeeze Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) contemplates the fact she may have well and truly cooked it. (Read all about Game of Thrones' Golden Company here.) And not just that, but it seems we also can spot Harry Strickland in the preview. "I look forward to seeing this one", Maisie Williams' Arya Stark says in the new trailer that was released on Tuesday.

By the way, you know who else is at Winterfell?

Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for Game of Thrones season 8.

For the final battle on GoT, everyone gets to participate including Arya Stark who has never been involved in a battle before. We may have to invent a brand-new word that fully explains just how hype we are for the final season. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, episode director Miguel Sapochnik, who previously directed the Battle of the Bastards episode, confirmed this new episode will feature a battle between familiar living characters and the Night King and his army.

"From the beginning we've talked about how the show would end".
