Game Of Thrones starts on Monday, April 15 only on M-NET!
HBO’s signature series (Game of Thrones) will begin its final season this April. Fans have been waiting for nearly two years.
The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. The two haven’t seen each other since the second episode of season one, when Jon gifted Arya her precious sword, Needle. In the tease, as the three Stark kids stand in front of their own crypt statues, a frost creeps down the hallway. The signal of the White Walkers causes Jon and Arya to draw their blades, anticipating the coming fight.
Another prominent part of the teaser is the feather in front of Lyanna’s crypt. King Robert Baratheon placed the feather there on the very first episode of the series. Later, on the fifth season, Sansa touched the feather when she visited her aunt’s statue.
Jon has yet to find out he’s half Targaryen and half Stark, but that revelation will surely be a major part of his story line on the coming season.
The final season of the series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10-episode seasons. Despite having fewer installments, those episodes are reportedly all longer than an hour, with some possibly at feature length.
In a brief clip of the new season, released last week, HBO showed Daenerys Targaryen and Jon arriving in Winterfell.
Sansa greets them and tells Dany, “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace.” This is a direct callback to the first-ever “Game of Thrones” episode, in which Ned Stark welcomed Robert to the castle and told him Winterfell was his.
With the season premiere coming April 14, that should place the finale episode at May 19 (if HBO doesn’t skip any weeks).
