HBO has released the new teaser video for "Game of Thrones" Season 8. This so-called teaser is essentially just a 39-second animated clip with no actual Season 8 footage in it. Still, it does a pretty good job of symbolizing what we can see happening in the final season. But before I delve into all the Season 8 clues, let's first take a look at the actual video down below.

The Dragonstone promo teases final battle

This rather fascinating animated clip shows us the big painted table on Dragonstone that Aegon the Conqueror built before he invaded the Seven Kingdoms.

But before delving into all the specifics, let's talk about the actual name of the video. I don't know about you, but the fact that this teaser is titled Dragonstone makes me think that we'll see more of videos like this that will show us the other key locations in Westeros, such as Winterfell or King's Landing. Personally, I'd like to see the Crypts of Winterfell teaser, as I firmly believe that the Crypts will play a major role in the final season.

As for the actual Season 8 footage, my guess is that we won't see any until late January or early February of 2019, though we could see some promotional photos and that long-awaited official premiere date revealed before the New Year. Speculation aside, let's talk about the video itself.

What this teaser can tell us

You don't have to be a genius to notice that this Dragonstone tease is a clear nod to the original source material, George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series. That said, let's see what it can tell us about the final season.

The teaser opens up with the shot of ice descending upon Westeros.

The direwolf map marker is then frozen, which could be a hint that mankind will lose the Battle at Winterfell. A lot of people could die, including some of the main characters, but I do think that the battle will move further south. We then see the dragon map marker being frozen. Some people think that this figure represents the undead Viserion, but it could also mean that another dragon is going to die, most likely Rhaegal.

The video then shifts its focus to the far south, where we see fire spreading across the map, setting the lion map marker ablaze. This could very well mean that Daenerys Targaryen will go to King's Landing sometime after the Battle of Winterfell and defeat Cersei Lannister.

Then the forces of ice and fire finally collide somewhere in the middle of Westeros (could be the Neck, or perhaps even the Isle of Faces). As soon as the fire and ice touch, we can clearly see the wall of dragonglass being formed, which is kind of logical, because dragonglass is, after all, a frozen fire. As to what this means for the story, only time will tell. The screen then cuts to black confirming that "Game of Thrones" will return in April 2019.
