'Game of Thrones' Teaser Hints at Big Development

There are going to be lots of huge events in the final season of Game of Thrones, no doubt. But a new teaser for the show's upcoming finale gives a look at one of them: a meeting between two characters who've never laid eyes on each other before. Read on for details.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones bows in April 2019, promising the resolution of more stories than Westeros has kingdoms — well past seven, for those keeping score.

As David Benioff and Dan Weiss' blockbuster drama based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series draws to a close, expect countless new character combinations in the thick of the White Walker war, including the one revealed in an HBO teaser released during the Golden Globes: Jon Snow (Kit Harington) bringing Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to Winterfell for the first time, where she meets Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).

"Winterfell is yours, Your Grace," Sansa tells the Mother of Dragons. Watch the teaser above, which includes a look at numerous HBO projects, including the highly anticipated Watchmen adaptation from Damon Lindelof:

Jon and Sansa's reunion all the way back in the fourth episode of season six kicked off an avalanche of convergent storylines, from Dany uniting forces with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and the Iron Islanders (including Alfie Allen's Theon Greyjoy), to Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) meeting Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), the latter of whom is also seen in the new scene released by HBO. The first ever meeting between Sansa and Daenerys is just another example of how tightly the story is tying together, as the Night King and the White Walkers continue their march on Westeros, having blown through the Wall in the season seven finale.

Indeed, the very fact that Jon and Daenerys are arriving at Winterfell in time to meet with a relatively calm Sansa tells us at least one thing about the final season of Thrones: the two Targaryens (one of whom doesn't know about his fiery heritage) will make it back to the heart of the North before the White Walkers' arrival.
