How disappointed I was last night when there was no trailer released during the Superbowl. I’m sure I was not the only fan awaiting a glimpse into Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Of course it would air during the superbowl when so many people would be tuned in right? The final season, for sure HBO would go out with a bang and air a full length trailer during Super Bowl Halftime. Well NO!. I was wrong. There was no trailer, full length or not. There was no promo! There was no teaser.
There was a commercial! A budlight commercial in which the budknight jousted with The Mountain. A season 6 armored Mountain. The scene reminded be of the season 1 tourney however, there wasn’t a Robert look alike. Which may have made sense since I could see Robert Baratheon drinking a budlight. Then after The Mountain won the joust he proceeded to squish the budknight’s head, remniscent of Oberyn during Tyrion’s trial by combat. Note – they didnt show it 🙂 Then Drogon proceeds to burn the town like the field of fire 2.0
While the commercial was nice to see but i’m sure i’m not the only one who would’ve preferred a trailer! Well back to waiting we go!
