Wow, well, I never expected to get any Game of Thrones related content until next year, but this is a brilliant surprise! I pretty much always feel a pain when the show finishes and goes off the air knowing I have to wait a long time to see it again, but stuff like this gets me extremely hyped for what’s coming.
Game of Thrones has been an amazing adaptation of the books, and even for readers, we are entering into unknown places as the show is slowly beginning to move past where George R.R. Martin has written to.
The teaser is relatively short, but we get two voices talking:
Bloodraven (Max Von Sydow) and an older sounding Bran.
Not only does the teaser give us a quick montage of clips from the show’s past, but it teases us to our faces that “we have no idea what’s going to happen.” This is extremely exciting because I feel like Game of Thrones is just getting into what will be some of the story’s most epic moments.
Lots of the clips showed the Stark family members, which really has me feeling like this is the breaking point for the family to rise back up again, each in their own individual ways. Bran has been a very mysterious character in the books, and his journey gets more interesting each step of the way, and I am one of the believers that he will easily end up being one of, if not, the most powerful characters by the time everything is finished (dragon warging am I right?!).
I’m extremely excited to see Max Von Sydow in the Bloodraven roll, because he seems like a perfect choice for it and his voice gives me chills in this teaser. I can’t wait to see what happens with Bran, Jon and the entire Stark gang because they all have chances to move back into power. The teaser shows Jon being stabbed followed up by Bran warging, which might imply that a more similar path from the books will help save Jon thanks to his magical abilities.
I also am most excited to explore the White Walkers and the Night’s King. There are the clips of him with the baby, which implies we will be getting more of that. The White Walkers are one of the most interesting aspects of Game of Thrones and it will be interesting to see how far things go with them, because we clearly are in the dark on that one.
The teaser is just a bunch of clips from the past seasons, but it’s still extremely exciting! I don’t care about the holidays, the new year, or even my birthday in March.
Give me April. I need April.
