New ‘Game of Thrones’ teaser has fans more confused than ever
Geez, Raven, just tell us what you want already.
The Three-Eyed Raven has even more confusing messages for us.
Just a few days after Game of Thrones’ first attempt to send its fans “the Sight” in the form of a new teaser didn’t exactly go as planned, it sent out two new ones to fans, many of whom never received the first clip.
The two clips are similar in nature and actually feature some of the same scenes; in particular, the doors to the House of Black and White and that damn Three-Eyed Raven’s crow that we’ve come to know very well (and maybe even loathe with impatience). But once you watch them a few times, thanks to some swift recording from fans—a lot more than the Sight’s capabilities are allowing us—you’ll start to notice the differences.
The first vision (the one I received last night) appears to have very little new footage—aside from the doors. There’s debate about whether the ocean at night is recycled, and it’s possible that the two people climbing a hill are Brienne and Pod, although that could be from season 4 as well.
While frustrating, looking at the past is just one way the Sight works in the show and books, and as those who worship the Drowned God say, “What is dead may never die.” Oberyn is gone, but his legacy and presence will still be felt. So will Winterfell, which is just a shadow of itself as the Boltons take over the castle.
The other teaser offers just as few hints as the first. Someone (possibly Arya?) grabs the hilt of a sword, but it’s not her own. Ice and fire appear right next to each other. A bloodied sword appears without its owner, and the stamping of sticks on the ground matches the beat of Littlefinger breaking Sansa’s necklace—the same one containing the poison that killed Joffrey.
The onslaught of new teasers brings some conflicted feelings. Are we so desperate for new footage or news of any kind that these are satisfying fans? Or is it the gentle reminder that show viewers know little to nothing and the teasers might leave them more puzzled than ever?
