'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Trailer Is Here And It Looks Like Jon Snow Is Going to Ride That Dragon

It's finally here

The first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 is finally here and you're going to want to watch it as soon as possible.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Trailer

This is the first real footage we've seen from the last season of Game of Thrones, except a few snippets here and there in HBO promos.

There's a whole lot of dragon action going on in this first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8, including the barest hint that Jon Snow may pick up dragon riding himself.

"The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us," Jon Snow actor Kit Harington told GQ Australia, describing the intensive filming for the new season. "Everyone was broken at the end. I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f--king tiring. We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, Right, I'm f--king sick of this. I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, 'I've had enough now. I love this, it's been the best thing in my life, I'll miss it one day – but I'm done.'"

The trailer initially focuses on Arya, who does indeed "know death." We don't know who she's going to stab with that dragonglass blade, but this trailer certainly suggests Arya will be crossing off at least one more name on her infamous list.

Other subplots included in this first trailer are the ongoing split between Queen Cersei and her brother Jaime (who pledges to "fight for the living"), Daenerys and her army marching to Winterfell, Gendry preparing for battle and the return of the Night King's ice dragon.

While huge battles have been promised for the final season of Game of Thrones, this Season 8 trailer only hints at what's in store. In the final shots we see the armies of the living arrayed in front of Winterfell, as the armies of the dead approach. Unlike the Battle of the Bastards, this massive conflict will be set at night.

Game of Thrones returns for its final season on April 14.
