HBO Releases the First Official Photos of Game of Thrones Season 8

278

None of the stills offer too much in the way of plot details, but there’s still plenty to feast your eyes upon. Without further delay, let’s get into them:

Jon and Daenerys stand dramatically beyond the wall (judging from the landscape behind them, though it could possibly just be an especially rugged part of the North). Daenerys’ white fur dress has been updated with some red fabric. Is this to emphasize her Fire and Blood nature or just to differentiate herself from the background? We’ll have to wait and see.

We’ve got a great, up-close look at one of Cersei’s gorgeous new gowns in season 8. It looks like she’s added some golden armor to her ensemble. This could be to make up for Jaime’s absence … or it could just be the reflection of the candlelight.

The most tragic of the Starks (that’s right, I said it!) sits before the fire, perhaps contemplating how best to break some uncomfortable news to Westeros’ most affection aunt and nephew.

Daenerys continues to incorporate Westerosi climate and customs into her new wardrobe.

Varys has made it to the North! And he, like everyone else, has tailored his outfit accordingly.

The last man of House Tarly smiles that warm, signature smile that we didn’t get to see much of last season. But how long until he learns that Daenerys is the, er, reason he’s the last man of House Tarly?

 

I mean, we know Arya and Jon have to reunite this season, don’t we? Don’t we? So why not here?

Davos listens carefully as he sits with a winter-ready Unsullied soldier behind him.

Sansa’s looking very Queen of the North-y. As with the Jon and Arya stills, it’s dangerous (though tempting) to deduce too much. However, going by the eyelines, it very likely that Sansa and Daenerys’ stills take place in the same scene.

Tyron stands on the ramparts of Winterfell, wearing a new wintery outfit that … somewhat reflects the design of Cersei’s new dress.

 

A rare and hard-earned smile from Jaime Lannister, who’s now sporting a rugged (and very Northern) beard. The big question, of course, is who is he smiling at? (Like for Tyrion; reblog for Brienne. There are no other options).

Brienne is looking intense at whatever is transpiring off screen (if the gods are good she’ll actually have something to do in season 8 .. *ahem*)

Here we see Jon standing in Winterfell courtyard looking … dare I say a little bit hopeful? In terms of the angling and location, it’s certainly possible that this image takes place in the same scene as …

Jon and Daenerys stand dramatically beyond the wall (judging from the landscape behind them, though it could possibly just be an especially rugged part of the North). Daenerys’ white fur dress has been updated with some red fabric. Is this to emphasize her Fire and Blood nature or just to differentiate herself from the background? We’ll have to wait and see.
