We thought nothing could bring us more joy than HBO’s recent teaser trailer for Game of Thrones’ seventh season, featuring “Sit Down” by James, and depicting the show’s main movers and shakers (Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow) making their way towards the Iron Throne to take their seat.
As it turns out, we were wrong because this new trailer is even better.
The great war is here, as evidenced by the coming together of various forces with various intents from the North, South, East and West in this new teaser.
While the show’s key characters argue over who was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms, it is perhaps only Liam Cunningham’s Onion Knight who realizes the truth of their collective situation, telling an unknown other in the trailer “If we don’t put aside our enmities and band together we will die. And then it doesn’t matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.”
Catch a glimpse of all the blood, sweat and dragons below.
The show’s penultimate (sob) seven-episode seventh season premieres Sunday, July 16.
The final season will follow in summer of 2018.
