Game of Thrones season 8 character posters: What you missed

The Night King

There aren’t really any changes to the Night King’s costume, and as with Davos, that’s essentially what you’re meant to notice. He’s coming for that seat — or more accurately, what that seat represents. It’s a shame there aren’t icy effects on the armrests of the Iron Throne for him.

Cersei Lannister

How odd. Cersei’s been going for the all-black looks for a while now. To see red — a wine red, if you want to get specific — creep back into her color palette is fascinating. Her Lannister pendant is also back on full display instead of her crown. Finally, the stitching on her chest almost looks as though her flesh is being peeled back to expose the white of bone, not just a different thread color. In other words, it’s not a good sign.

Jon Snow

This poster is basically an answer to the famous season 1 poster that features Ned Stark. Granted, Jon is looking at the camera, but he’s holding his own Valyrian steel sword. In terms of color scheme, this is what he’s been wearing for a while, but it does echo Sam’s in its own way, and there are some blue tinges to the lighting to call to Sansa and Bran, his beloved siblings. However, that still seems like black leather — marking him both Stark and Targaryen in color scheme.

Daenerys Targaryen

Those red gloves are everything. Absolutely everything. Symbolically, you could say that Daenerys Targaryen has blood on her hands, people, and she’s willing to get them covered in it.

The stripes down her sleeves do nod to the pattern in her fur shoulder piece, and they almost look like a nod to the fashion of slashing without actually being slashing. This is a gown that’s cut for some freedom of movement, and it’s very similar to what we’ve seen before.
