Winter, for Game of Thrones fans, has terrible connotations.
But they woke up on a cold Monday morning in January to something good: a teaser trailer for the show’s final series.
It’s been a long time coming. Season seven aired in the UK two years ago, and *SPOILER ALERT* given how that ended, it didn’t look like the people of Westeros had anything to look forward to in season eight.
But fans definitely do – and warning again, there are spoilers for season seven of Game of Thrones below.
The teaser didn’t really tell us anything we didn’t already know about season eight but at this point, superfan George Alexander doesn’t care.
“We’ve waited so long since the last season for this to come, anything they give us is gold,” he tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.
George watches every Game of Thrones episode three or four times, recording his initial reactions for his YouTube channel and then providing analysis.
So you can imagine he’s poured over every single second of the first glimpse at Game of Thrones since 2017.
The trailer shows Jon Snow stood next to sisters Arya and Sansa Stark in the crypt below Winterfell where all their relatives are buried.
It’s the first time Jon and Arya have been seen together since season one and although this isn’t footage from season eight, George thinks those two will play a big part in the final season.
“I think that’s going to be a big part of it – to see how he reacts to how she’s changed over time,” he says.
That’s not all George thinks.
“I think Daenerys is going to find herself pregnant with a little Targaryen”, he says.
“It was alluded to a lot in season seven – she was mentioning to Jon that she couldn’t have children. I think we’re going to find that maybe, because they’re both of Targaryen blood, that it has the power to create another Targaryen.”
