Game of Thrones fans uncover details in new season eight credits

Game of Thrones fans were surprised by new opening credits when the eighth series aired on Sunday night – and fans have pointed out the most intricate details. 

The new addition, which still featured the show’s iconic theme, showed the map of Westeros in much greater detail than in previous seasons.

It also appeared to symbolically depict critical events from the fantasy drama’s past seven seasons, including the Red Wedding and the birth of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons.

The lengthy opening credits have taken viewers across the map of Westeros since the show’s first season.

But, unlike in previous renditions, the season eight credits begin beyond the Wall – which has a huge hole blown through its left side.

The credits then travel to new location Last Hearth – which is the is the ancestral home of House Umber – as tiles on the map turn blue underneath. 

They then zoom across the map to Winterfell – instead of the usual Kings Landing – which proudly displays the Stark grey direwolf insignia on its roof.

Viewers are taken on an in-depth tour of the ancestral seat of House Stark and through King’s Landing before the credits come to an end with the Game of Thrones logo. 

But some eagle-eyed fans have pointed out that symbols which pop up on screen throughout the credits may point to critical events from past seasons. 

At the beginning, the credits show the symbol of a dragon breathing fire to the ground – which could depict a moment in season seven when the Night King burns down the Wall with his own dragon.

A second set of symbols, a lion and a man holding the head of a wolf, could depict the Red Wedding, fans have said. 

The birth of Daenerys’ dragons and season two’s Red Comet may also have been seen in the final set of symbols – four dragons and a comet.

Posting time stamps to the video on YouTube, one user said: ‘The Red Wedding. The Lannisters have the Tullys, and the Boltons betray the Starks. All of it happens under the two towers of house Frey.

‘The Red Comet. Daenerys Targaryen (the bigger dragon) rises from the ashes alongside three newborn dragons.’

‘Who else was freaking out when they saw the new intro?!’ said another.

And one viewer pointed out that the tiles on the map turning blue as it moves south could suggest the future movement of the White Walkers. 

Another viewer said: ‘The tiles turn blue showing where the the White Walkers are… Last Hearth.’
