Snow way back.

by Andrew MacGregor

Game of Thrones: “Aftermath” - 60s

Winter is well and truly here in this frigid trail for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, as director Tomas Jonsgården takes viewers on a tour of Winterfell… and it's clear that the home of House Stark has seen better days.

Jonsgården's camera roves around the castle's ravaged courtyard, chambers, and corridors, as snow covers virtually every surface. When the source of this meteorological horror wanders into view, it's enough to send a, well, chill down one's spine.

For the uninitiated, this all may seem like a ponderous walk in the snow. Programme buffs, on the other hand, will appreciate the promo's unforgiving aesthetic and multiple nods to seasons past, with feathers, pendants, and swords rewarding keen-eyed viewers as the end draws near.
