WATCH: New HBO promos and images feature new look for Game of Thrones characters

April 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments


HBO have released a few new promos (check them out below) and in them, along with actors/characters from HBO’s biggest shows including Ballers, Silicon Valley and Westworld, there are severe shots of characters from Game of Thrones (we have screen crabs below the videos) and some of these have some interesting little details.

So, feel free to check out the images – but beware as some of the details below may be considered spoilery, although it’s mostly just speculations.

Ok, so what can we gather from the images? Well…


If you look closely you’ll see that Tyrion and Missandei are sporting a Hand of the [King] Queen pin.

Some folks reckon Brienne is a wearing Stark house fur which would mean she may have pledged herself to a new house.

Could Arya and Bran’s wolf fur mean they are heading for home… and winter?

Oh and there’s The Hound and Hodor… are they back this season?

All these and more will (hopefully) be answered when Game of Thrones returns on July 16th.

Are you excited for the return of Game of Thrones? Did we miss anything? Let us know…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
