HBO releases first-look at Game of Thrones final season


HBO delivered a huge one-minute commercial during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night and it included the first video first-look from Game of Thrones final season.

And, oh boy, was it a big one.

The trailer started off showing short moments from a number of shows including True Detective (which premieres next week), the first season of Watchmen and Barry.

First-look at Game of Thrones

However, the Barry first-look ended when he punched a water-looking wall and from the other side, one of Dany’s dragons flew through.

That was enough to get any Game of Thrones fan incredibly excited.

And it was only the start.

The next thing it showed was the first look at some video from the Game of Thrones final season.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) walks up to a smiling Jon Snow (Kit Harington). The two look happy and then Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) greets them coldly, but with a forced smile.

“Winterfell is yours, your grace.”

Oh man, this final season is going to be great.

A Watchmen tease

On top of the Game of Thrones moment, there was also a Watchmen tease — which was also a first.

It included a lot of people wearing masks over their faces, including police officers. Then, Ozymandias (Jeremy Irons) showed up and said was sounded like: “Johnny just begun.”

Could he mean John Osterman — Doctor Manhatten?

There also looks to be an appearance by Rorschach at the end of the Watchmen clip. That makes no sense as Rorschach died in the movie and this takes place in that same world years later.

Could Doctor Manhattan have faked the murder of Rorschach? Or has a new Rorschach stepped up to take on the mantle?

And what is up with all the masks?

In 2017, showrunner Damon Lindelof said that he doesn’t trust superheroes at all and the masks in this might play into that distrust.

"“We should not trust people who put on masks and say that they are looking out for us,” Lindelof told the Hollywood Reporter. “If you hide your face, you are up to no good.”"

True Detective premieres on January 13. The final season of Game of Thrones premieres in April. Watchmen premieres later in 2019.
