The Official Poster For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Is Finally Here—And The Theories Are Coming In Hot

popular

It's the end of an era. HBO is ramping up for the most highly anticipated 8th and final season of Game of Thrones.

With a launch date set for April 14th, it still feels like an eternity for ardent fans of the fantasy drama series.

To commemorate the finale season, the premium cable channel released the official poster with the show's initials superimposed over a curiously familiar backdrop.

What is it?


GOT's official Twitter account posted the image, captioning it simply: "The final season."

Need they say more?


If you clicked on the image, you'll notice that something resembling the iron throne is also fused with a dragon, with its fiery eyes staring you down.

Will the heir to the throne be one of the Daenerys' dragons, a dragon-rider, or someone dragon-blooded, perhaps?



Fans weighed in with their theories, predictions and unabashed excitement.











Is the eye color a dead giveaway?







There will be blood. But whose?






You can watch the trailer for the eight and final season of GOT in the YouTube clip, below.

HBO's President of Programming Casey Bloys told EW that the final season will be "epic."

"I think it's epic. I think fans are going to love it. I think it's a fitting way for one of the greatest shows in the history of television to go out and that people are going to be very happy. There's going to be a lot of conversation."

The conversation has already started, and it's not even April yet.
