“Winter is coming”

HBO has just dropped its final trailer for the eighth season of its flagship fantasy series teasing the iconic final battle every fan of the show has been waiting for. 

The latest video opens with young assassin Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) running for her life, as she talks about being ready to face death.

I know death, he’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one,” she says in the opening voiceover. 

From here we see the armies preparing for battle and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) staring in admiration as dragons soar above.

We’re then shown Jon Snow (Kit Harington) who addresses the upcoming White Walker battle, saying: “They’re coming. Our enemy doesn’t stop, doesn’t tire, doesn’t fear.”
