The dead are here in Game of Thrones S8 E3 teaser trailer
The dead are already here in the latest teaser trailer for Game of Thrones‘ eighth season.
We’re one third of the way into the final six episodes of the series, with twists and turns at every corner. Most of our heroes have gathered in Winterfell, preparing to wage war against an undead enemy. In episode two ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’, we learnt that the battle was only hours away. By episode three, it looks like it’s finally here.
The new trailer shows Grey Worm and Brienne commanding their troops, women and children waiting in the crypts, and many characters unsheathing their weapons. In voiceover, Sansa says “The most heroic thing we can do now is look the truth in the face.”
Later, Jon Snow says “The Night King is coming” and Daenerys corrects him with “The dead are already here.” Could these words imply an oversight on behalf of the living? Could the dead have somehow caught the living by surprise?
A quick google search will reveal there are plenty of fan theories floating around about the crypts right now. Episode two repeatedly told us that was the safest place for those who could not fight, but is it really? Then there’s that shot of Arya running, terrified, from something. What could it be?
Monday can’t come soon enough.
