Thrones Time: Breaking Down the Symbolism in the S8 GoT Teaser

The Thrones Time crew is back with a new episode to talk about a few interesting Game of Thrones news items that have popped up since our last show, as well as to break down the latest teaser trailer for the show’s eighth season.

We start things off by talking about all of the new casting announcements for the Game of Thrones prequel, which now has a boatload of stars attached to it.

From there we shift into a revelation that Ramsey Bolton’s death was supposed to be even more gruesome than it was. Apparently, a VFX studio had crafted a CG jaw so they could show flesh being ripped from his gums and teeth, but the creators that it was too over-the-top.

HBO’s 2019 lineup trailer also got discussed, mostly for the Game of Thrones clip that showed Sansa handing Winterfell over to Dany, so we wondered how Sansa may be feeling during that epic moment.

Finally, we wrap things up with a lengthy talk about the new teaser, which was full of symbolism that we try to analyze.

Head on down below to give the episode a listen!
