The ultimate watch has begun.
The premiere of Recreation of Thrones Season eight has lastly arrived, and in it, there’s a lot to soak up.
From Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dramatic arrival to Winterfell to the Stark sisters’ icy reception of her to Cersei (Lena Headey)’s NSFW alliance with the swashbuckling Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) to Jon-slash-Aegon (Equipment Harington) lastly discovering out he is no Snow, the start of the top was an occasion of an episode.
Earlier than we obtained to any of that, although, the HBO epic opened with a model new little bit of title artwork that served as a type of standing examine for our all our favourite locations .. effectively, some of them anyway.
First, we see the Wall tattered at Eastwatch as ice begins to make its approach south previous the Final Fireside (RIP little Umber) and on in the direction of Winterfell. As a substitute of coasting proper by Home Stark’s residence, although, we then take a visible journey by means of the Nice Corridor and beneath to the household crypt (which, cryptically appears to be reassembling itself from items alongside the way in which). This deep dive into our favourite fort is quickly adopted by a journey by means of a fancier rendition of King’s Touchdown, match with a sword-by-sword fanning of the Iron Throne. Annnd, that is it, people.
There is no extra journeys throughout the Slender Sea. No extra visible reminders of the whereabouts of the Iron Islands or the Free Cities and even the Riverlands. We’re on the finish of the sport now, and the board is far, a lot smaller.
Revisit the brand new intro within the video above.
