The tease was directed by David Nutter, who won an Emmy in 2015 for the season five finale (“Mother’s Mercy”). The tease includes an original score by Ramin Djawadi, who won an Emmy in 2018 for the season seven finale (“The Dragon and the Wolf”).
The power players of the Seven Kingdoms have gone to great lengths to get to where they are. All have made sacrifices, experienced betrayal and taken great risks for the throne — some have already lost the battle.
