sooooooo, if anyone took notice of the clip from the new season that was part of the HBO promo during halftime of the college national championship game you'll see that there was actually a pretty big reveal. while everyone has been focused on the Dani-Sansa face to face the more important thing revealed in the scene was that Jorah is still alive and has made it to Winterfell. in case you forgot, the last we saw Jorah he was on the wall with Tormund when the Night King's new dragon blasted it apart so it wasn't clear whether had survived or not, and since we see now that he survived it is a reasonable assumption that Tormund survived as well.

Nope, that was Beric Dondarrion up on the wall with Tormond. Jorah left with his Queen.

yeah, he was in Kings Landing for Dany's meetup with Cersei. easy enough mistake to make, since these characters look alot alike, and considering how rushed everything was last season, with characters just travelling from the Wall to King's Landing and back in a single episode. one moment Jorah's up with Jon Snow capturing a white walker, the next he's down in Kings Landing dumping that same white walker at Cersei's feet.

That was my first thought too... like fan-fic level. Message boards are alive with the talk about the statues.... Jon Targaryan's statue seems to show an OLDER Jon. Foreshadowing that he is the only Stark survivor?

Some people think that the single feather in the beginning represents Bran as the 3-Eyed Raven.
Others think that the cold mist represents Bran as he will turn into the Night King.
Me? I just think it was a cheesy-as-hell production and don't want to see anything else until April 14.

Maybe. But Season 1 Episode 1, King Robert puts a feather in the hands of the statue of Lyanna and says something about how she always loved when he brought her exotic birds or some shit like that. So that feather has been down there since that day, not disturbed until this Soap Opera Promo happened????

i think it is a mistake to attempt any deciphering of hidden clues that aren't there. I can only imagine the fun they had making this teaser, chortling and giggling to themselves as they were packing in as many false leads as possible to send fans chasing their tails.

Well that's the whole point of this teaser. To titillate the fans, keep them engaged and thinking while in show-hiatus.

except that any thinking fan won't waste any time or energy wondering what it all means. teasers like this remind me that the general public are completely simple-minded and gullible

I just had a thought/theory.

Early in the trailer is a shot of Euron's ships, ferrying the Golden Company from across the sea to fight Cersei's battle against Jon/Dany.
In the books, the Golden Company is run by Jon Connington and the supposed son or Rhagar Targaryan. Obviously they aren't going to introduce another Targ at this point, but I'm thinking that what happens is the Golden Company lands, and immediately declares for House Targ, to be revealed that their captain is Jon Connington, right hand man and best fried of Rhagar.

zzzzzzzzzz whatever, this is a boring trailer that shows nothing and I may as well not have seen it roll on boring people like you who overanalyse things WRONGLY into just a dull simple shot. IT'S JUST SHIPS!!!!! Get over it! It means nothing! God you're such a pleb!

nice idea, but i think Jon Connington suddenly showing up in this series is about as likely as finding out the Night King is married to Lady Stoneheart and that they're actually coming to fight for the North against Cersei.

I hear ya, but I don't think he'd be showing up as a meaningful character. Just as a small addition, someone who's there to say a few lines before become zombie fodder. Eh, its more of 'fan fic' in my head then a real idea.

I just can't imagine that Team Dany is really going to have to fight off the hordes of the dead THEN an army sent by Cersei. I know that's what it looks like is going to happen, but it doesn't feel right to me. I mean, the North has always been one of the least populated areas of the kingdom, will they all of a sudden have 100 thousand men at their backs in this fight? The north, the remains of the wildlings, the eyrie (again, not a huge army), and the Unsullied. Oh yea, and two dragons...
