Game of Thrones’ official season 8 poster is a symbol of pure power as it blends Daenerys’ dragon with the Iron Throne

HBO has released the official poster for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, which kicks off the six-episode season on Sunday, April 14.

The poster is almost a callback of sorts to the season one poster, which featured Ned Stark (Sean Bean) sitting on the Iron Throne.

Given how misleading that poster was, hopefully fans of Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) two remaining dragons shouldn’t have much to worry about.

The poster features a close-up at the top half of the Iron Throne, where the ruler of Westeros sits, which is made up of the swords of the crown’s enemies.

With the eyes of one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons clearly visible on the throne, it could be an indication that one of her remaining dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal, could be killed.

On the other hand, it also could indicate that the third dragon, the undead Viserion who was killed and resurrected by The Night King, could fall, or it simply could be indicative of Dany’s desire to take the Iron Throne.

Things could also just be purposefully misleading, like in the Season one poster with Ned Stark sitting on the Iron Throne.

In awe: The new trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 showed the Stark siblings Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams) looking on in awe as the dragons fly in overhead, the first time dragons have been seen in Westeros in centuries

Stark begins in Season 1 as the Lord of Winterfell and Warden in the North, but he did not ultimately rise to sit on the Iron Throne.

Instead, he was beheaded by the young king Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) towards the end of the first season. 

The new trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 that was released earlier this month confirmed that Daenerys and her dragons, along with her unsullied army and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) at her side, have arrived in Westeros.

The footage showed the Stark siblings Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams) looking on in awe as the dragons fly in overhead, the first time dragons have been seen in Westeros in centuries.

Where is Jaime?: The trailer also featured a rather intriguing shot of Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who was last seen leaving King's Landing behind

The trailer features Jaime telling an unseen character, ‘I promised to fight for the living. I intend to keep that promise.’

It’s possible he went to Winterfell, and is speaking with Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen or even his brother Tyrion Lanninster (Peter Dinklage).

HBO also recently released the runtimes of each Season 8 episode, four of which are over an hour with three approaching feature-length, at or over 80 minutes long.

Game of Thrones kicks off its eighth and final season Sunday, April 14 at 9 PM ET on HBO.
