"Game of Thrones" Season 8 officially arrives April 14, 2019, HBO announced this weekend. Fans waited for what seemed like a lifetime for this moment. However, judging by the stark ( yes, pun intended) and gloomy trailer released, there's not a lot of laughs going on in Westeros. The teaser released by HBO takes place in the Winterfell catacombs, just as it seems the White Walkers pitch up to ruin everyone's day a lot more.

More about the preview teaser for 'Game of Thrones'

In the teaser preview of "GoT," we see John Snow, (Kit Harington), walking around the catacombs.

He passes a statue of Lyanna Stark who gave birth to him. Then a disembodied voice speaks, and it says "You are a Stark." Other people wandering around the catacombs include Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). People.com wrote of this scene, the "man they thought was their half-brother" turns out to be a cousin, "and icy air courses through the tunnel as it seems the White Walkers arrive."

Fans know that John Snow was always thought to be the bastard of Ned Stark, Mind you they learned that in fact, he was the offspring of Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen. Lyanna was the sister of Ned Stark. This makes him a Stark indeed, and actually, his shenanigans with Daenerys means he's been in an incestuous relationship with his aunt.

This cringe-worthy scenario is pretty gross, but nevertheless, it seems in that wintery world just about anything is possible.

Is the preview trailer snippet actual footage of the new season?

So far, we had a very short teaser trailer previews of the upcoming "Game of Thrones" season. In this one, as the actors wander around the catacombs, meeting their dead, the narrative is in the third person.

Nowhere in the previous seasons did the dead start chatting directly to the main characters. So, this makes one wonder if perhaps this is an advert rather than an actual scene. Esquire.com picked up on that.

The outlet wrote, "It's like a haunting fever dream. And it can't mean anything good," especially as towards the end they see their own doom as they notice their own death statues.

As with everything "Game of Thrones," fans speculate and HBO throws out teasers that keep that speculation at fever piitch. Whatver the outcomes, we are sure to have an emotional and rollicking ride in the new season of "Game of Thrones" that premieres in April.
