Winter is here and we’re finally blessed with the first Game of Thrones official teaser that fans have been dying to see. The final season of the critically acclaimed show is drawing near and we’re all prepping ourselves for the most epic battle in TV history. The teaser gave us a glimpse of the three Starks and fans are both excited and nervous for what’s to come.

In the teaser, the Starks are seen walking through the Crypt of Winterfell. Jon passes by the funeral statue of his mother, Lyanna Stark, while Sansa and Arya walk pass through Catelyn and Ned Stark. Towards the end of the teaser, the three of them arrive at their own statues as darkness and ice close in—prompting both Jon and Arya to draw their swords.
Fans couldn’t contain their emotions as they see Jon, Sansa, and Arya reunited after all these years.
ARYA SANSA AND JON ALL IN ONE FRAME???????

People are especially happy to see Jon and Arya together again as the two always had a special bond. The last time we saw them together was 8 years ago, when Jon gave Arya her sword, Needle.

The Arya/Jon reunion is the main event for season 8. It better be 34 minutes long and Mariah Carey better be singing in the background and there better be fireworks going off as Jon and Arya run in slow motion to embrace each other. And everyone around them better cry pic.twitter.com/QMBNQr8GBh

Probably one of the highlights of the teaser was when both Jon and Arya draw their swords and went forward to protect Sansa. Sansa in that scene though, was like: “Nani???”
did yall fucking notice how both jon and arya's immediate reaction to oncoming danger is drawing their swords and getting in front of sansa to protect her i- pic.twitter.com/88AVqH25uM

The feather that Robert Baratheon put in Lyanna’s statue in Season 1 and Sansa in Season 5, noticeably fell when Jon walked by. It also turned to ice as the army of the dead approaches and people are wondering what it’s significance could be.
The feather you see in the new Game Of Thrones trailer is the same feather King Robert Baratheon placed on Lyanna Stark's crypt statue in the very first episode of the show. #ForTheThrone pic.twitter.com/XOuIvPun2r

In the teaser, people noticed how Sansa’s and Arya’s statues resemble their current age while Jon’s looks like he’s aged. Fans are freaking out about how this could be a hint of Sansa and Arya not being able to survive the battle while Jon lives long enough.
Arya's Statue is young
Sansa's Statue is young
Jon's Statue is old
Bran doesn't have a statue and is nowhere to be found

Bran was not there & Jon's statue was the only one that showed one of the starks in an older age, probably hinting at the fact that Arya and Sansa will not survive this battle. but I want my complex female characters to win :(( #ForTheThrone pic.twitter.com/CZc2QqSIaG

Some GoT fans are now asking HBO to reshoot the whole thing if Sansa and Arya are meant to die in the final season.
wait…..they’re looking at their own statues
Arya and Sansa’s look their current age but Jon is older version if himself

Why are Sansa and Aryas statues young and Jon's old? Nope. If Sansa dies…HBO you better ditch that footage and reshoot that crap. I refuse to endure Sansas death. #ForTheThrone pic.twitter.com/pKa1ktitR1

And in a true Game of Thrones sense, this trailer echoes what Ned Stark always tell his children: “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”
