Fire and ice are about to collide.
HBO just released the first promo for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, and the short clip is sort of a new take on the 3D map of Westeros from the show’s opening credits. Ice overtakes a Stark direwolf and a Targaryen dragon while fire encompasses a Lannister lion, and the fire and ice appear to meet in the middle as a new barrier erupts between them.
We’ve watched it approximately 12 times so far, and we’re at the point where we’ve overthought it so much it no longer makes any sense. Will the dragons eat the Lannisters while the white walkers destroy the Starks and Targaryens? Does winter only come for the Starks and Targaryens while the Lannisters still get to enjoy the summer? Will everyone either freeze or burn to death, leaving the iron throne empty at the end? Did HBO just think it looked cool???
