Thrones Time: Breaking Down and Speculating on The Game of Thrones S8 Trailer

It’s been a great week for Game of Thrones fans thanks to a bevy of news coming out for the show’s eighth season, which included the very first real deal trailer for the show’s final run. We also got a detailed breakdown of the Battle of Winterfell, which is said to be the largest battle ever filmed. It’s even going to be longer than the Helm’s Deep melee featured in Peter Jackson’s The Two Towers!

Anyway, thanks to the release of the trailer, which clocked in at just over 2-minutes, myself and the other two thirds of the Thrones Time podcast team got together to break it down and speculate on what we think the footage means. We start from the beginning and work our way to the final frame of the trailer, and we even go over characters or locations that were missing from the trailer.

Luckily, Nick complied a handy bulleted list of key events from the trailer that we worked off of, so you can follow along with it below. While the trailer showed a ton of footage, it didn’t really show us anything at all, which we all agreed was the best type of trailer, especially for a show with as much secrecy behind it as Game of Thrones.

Please tune in above if you haven’t already done so and get subscribed for future episodes, which will feature breakdowns of all six Season 8 episodes of Game of Thrones.
