Winter is right around the corner for the last time as Game of Thrones is all set to premiere its final season on April 15.
While showrunners have been sparing about revealing the plot points, the newly-released teaser, which features the first time Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark, contains a few key clues about what we can anticipate in the season.
The clip shows the three siblings together at the cave underneath the Stark home in Winterfell.
Jon walks past a statue of Lyanna Stark, who he believes is his aunt, and the focus turns to the feather in her hand that falls as he passes by
As Jom walks past a statue of Lyanna Stark, who he thinks of as his aunt and the camera pans to the feather which is a corollary to the scene in the first episode when Lyanna’s husband King Robert places the feather in his hands while paying tribute, with her brother, Ned Stark, by his side.
The echoing voiceovers from the deceased characters in the background also point to the storyline in which Jon Snow learns about the child of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.
“All this horror has come to my family,” says Catelyn Stark, It’s all because I couldn’t love a motherless child.”
“You are a Stark,” says Ned, another quote from early in the series which serves as the reminder that Jon Snow really has the stark blood running through his veins as opposed to what he previously believed.
After being joined by Arya and Sansa, the three come face to face with their own statues. Followed by the fire in the torch against the antagonising mistiness that characterises the White walkers as they prepare to battle
There is a lot to take away from this 1:20 minute footage.
While their brother, Bran Stark knows the truth because of his psychic abilities to look travel into the past and future. Jon Snow is actually the legitimate child of Rhaegar and Lyanna, and therefore the heir to the Iron Throne.
