Why Does Tyrion Look So Concerned in the New Game of Thrones Trailer? Fans Have a Theory

The creators of Game of Thrones are certainly under a lot of pressure to make the upcoming final season the best one yet. Between the many unanswered questions we're looking to have resolved, at least one epic battle, and a handful of confrontations we know our favorite characters must have, the HBO series has a lot on the line. And the first full-length trailer for season 8, which was released last week, only added to that hype, as it has raised even more questions and has fans offering up a dizzying number of theories about what might happen when the show comes to an end.

One character who has created quite a buzz is Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister. While he's barely in the trailer at all, the few seconds that do feature him are extremely telling. He stands there, with a concerned expression on his face, staring up at the sky looking at … something. This, of course, has led to a stream of speculation about what that something could be. The Huffington Post has posed an interesting theory—and one with enough evidence behind it that it might just be true: Tyrion could very well be watching Jon Snow ride a dragon.

Back in season 7, fans began suspecting that Jon would be riding a dragon in the final season, with many believing he's ready to in one of the scenes in the new trailer. But why should we be so sure Tyrion is looking at this? Well, HuffPost points out an important detail: In a poster for season 5 and the trailer for season 7, Tyrion is looking up at a dragon. And in the trailer for season 6, we see him getting ready to unchain Dany's dragons. The show's promos clearly love to pair together Tyrion and at least one of these creatures, so it wouldn't be surprising if it was the same for the final season.

On top of that, the last time we saw Tyrion, he was looking equally as distressed after discovering that Jon and Daenerys had become romantically involved. Keeping with this theme, it's easy to believe he's again looking at one of them, if not both, in the scene in question. The personal and political relationship among these three will no doubt be important in the upcoming episodes.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14, 2019.

Watch One Second From Every Game of Thrones Episode in Under Two Minutes

Game of Thrones aired its final episode on May 19, and despite some harsh reviews, many fans are finding it hard to accept the show’s end. While some consider Thrones counseling or rewatching the series with a tissue box handy, others on the internet are creating really cool montage videos.

Twitter user Andy Kelly recently posted a fan-made video of one-second clips from all 73 Game of Thrones episodes. The video shows the most memorable scenes from the series, such as Ned Stark’s decapitation, the Red Wedding, King Joffrey being poisoned, Jon Snow’s resurrection, the killing of the Night King, and Daenerys Targaryen’s death.

You really can’t capture all of the action-packed events and shocking twists that happened within the eight seasons of Game of Thrones so quickly, but the video does a good job of giving encapsulating it in under two minutes. And it’s easier than binge-watching it again.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Us What a Game of Thrones/Full House Mashup Would Look Like

Two of the least-similar shows in television history just came together … in a parody courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The hilarious video depicts a hypothetical Game of Thrones spinoff series where Jaime Lannister joins two classic characters from Full House for a show appropriately titled Full House Lannister.

While there is at least one Thrones spinoff already in the works, Kimmel couldn’t wait for the series to premiere, so he made his own to deal with the post-Thrones blues.

The video starts off in typical Full House fashion with Joey (Dave Coulier) trying to open a pickle jar, which Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) stabs with his sword and destroys. After a few pun-filled jokes, Jaime gets upset and Danny (Bob Saget) sits down with him to talk. Jaime explains that he had a fight with his sister, but when he reveals it’s because he got Cersei pregnant again, a creeped out Danny flees the situation. Joey then comes over to seemingly console Jaime, but instead hilariously says, “I was just going to tell you to stop f***ing your sister.”

The parody perfectly combines the silliness of Full House and the darker topics of Game of Thrones—and the cherry on top is a shadow of a dragon flying over San Francisco in the credits.
