The eighth and final season of HBO fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" is coming, and a new poster for the farewell episodes promises that the impending wintry war will be a deadly one for the residents of Westeros.

In the image, we can make out many familiar faces, though it's a chilling -- quite literally -- depiction.


A large pile of bodies -- topped by those belonging to Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), the Night King (Vladimir Furdik), and many, many more -- can be seen partially buried in the snow, a sobering reminder that truly no one is safe as the series winds down. Taken in as a whole, the image reveals that all those corpses are forming the silhouette of the Iron Throne, a metaphor for how much bloodshed is required to seize control of the Seven Kingdoms.

The poster is also a direct nod to the upcoming Battle of Winterfell, the epic clash between the North and the Night King's army. The official "Game of Thrones" Twitter account hinted at that fact, captioning the image, "The great war was here."

We'll see how it all unfolds -- and which of those bodies is truly a goner -- soon enough. Season eight of "Game of Thrones" premieres on April 14.
