Supposedly there are only two seasons (and thirteen episodes) left in HBO's Game of Thrones series. This first trailer doesn't show anything but it definitely leaves the impression that the story is coming to an end. I am still a little peeved that the ending will be revealed on television before Martin writes it down in his books but such is life. People work at their own pace. And there's very little anyone can do to change that. The zoom out to the blue eye of presumably a White Walker and the crumbling of the various House sigils makes me think that this season will finally see the White Walkers become real to people outside of the Night Watch. We shall see. The new season starts on July 16th, 2017.
