The 'Game of Thrones' Final Season Poster Puts a Dragon on the Iron Throne
"Game of Thrones" continues to dribble out tidbits ahead of the April 14 premiere of its eighth and final season. We've gotten a trailer, photos, character posters, a premiere date announcement video and footage in larger HBO teasers.
Now, the fantasy epic has release the official poster for Season 8. It mashes up the iconic Iron Throne with a fiery-eyed dragon.
The imagery calls back to the Season 1 poster, which depicted Ned Stark (Sean Bean) sitting on the Iron Throne. Of course, he never actually belonged there, as he was Hand of the King and not the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. But that poster and its tagline — "You Win or You Die" — did presage Ned's tragic fate.
So, the Season 8 poster indicates that the dragon children of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will play a big role in who ends up sitting on the Iron Throne. It could be Daenerys — but then again, the Night King now controls one of those dragons.
