What do you think of the second trailer? Is there anything worth noticing or mentioning? Why do you think they used Light Of The Seven for this one? People are saying that Sansa quoting her father could mean Jon will die? I read the spoilers but I don't know, it could be partially wrong! And who do you is sharpening their sword in both trailers? Some say it Arya. Also what do you of what LF was saying?
The part that got me unreasonably and unexpectedly hyped was, strangely enough, Beric igniting his flaming sword to fight the White Walkers! Also that brief shot of the flock of ravens remote-controlled by Bran. I don’t know what the connection between Sansa saying that line and Jon dying would be—is it because we see a shot of (presumably) Jon riding away, alone, in the *cold winds* of the far North (I think after his group is rescued by Dany, according to the leaks)? In any case there’s nothing to worry about, the show always tries to tease Jon’s death, but he’s clearly not dying (again) before the end of the show, lmao. I also don’t think it’s worth splitting hairs on the pack survives line in general. For one thing, I doubt Sansa actually says it in the season—the delivery is very trailer-friendly and voiceover-y, and it’s probably there to get the audience hyped for the Starks finally coming on top now that ~winter is here~. The reason they used Sansa is that she’s currently a wild card re: her loyalty to house Stark (or the show wants you to think so), and the audience is invested in whether she’ll remain faithful to Jon (thus sticking with ~the pack~) or turn against him and listen to LF.
LF’l line is probably something he says to Sansa to impart some lesson and convince her to think of the bigger picture and not just of Winterfell (read: the Iron Throne), and it’s interesting that it’s voiced over a long shot of Sansa walking away from what I suppose is the Godswood and anxiously looking over her shoulder. I have the feeling this scene is somewhat unrelated to LF’s line though, and the montage is deliberately misleading (same goes for Jon’s line, that he probably says to the Northern lords and not to Dany, and is also heavily edited, imo).
Light of the Seven is a beautiful choice for the soundtrack. Cersei isn’t very prominent in this trailer so it’s a good way to remind us of what happened last season, but I also think it’s being used for its dramatic, ominous quality. Westeros is soon turning into one giant battlefield (e.g. the trailer shows one huge battle between the Lannisters and probably Dany’s army, and then there’s Euron vs Theon/Yara, and then whatever happens in Highgarden, and that’s not even counting the WW), and lots of people will die, so a funeral-type song seems appropriate.
Not sure about the sword, tbh.
