In just a little over three weeks, the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will begin. A new poster released in anticipation of the upcoming premiere appears to show the melted swords that comprise the Iron Throne -- until you take a closer look. The spikes actually radiate out from the scaly head of a dragon, whose mystical yellow eyes watch from the bottom of the poster.
Though promotional material for Game of Thrones generally doesn't yield new clues, the new poster does seem to hint at the inevitable clash between the Daenerys' dragons and the forces of the Iron Throne in King's Landing.
The show passed the plot of George R. R. Martin's novels some time ago, so now it's anyone's guess how the show will end. Even Martin himself doesn't know what D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have in store.
Season 8 of Game of Thrones will premiere April 14. The show stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark and Kit Harington as Jon Snow.
