Battle of Winterfell,” the final confrontation between the armies of the living and the dead that lasts for almost an hour of screen time.

And now we have a sense of what that means. The trailer is finally here and it’s brought death along with it.

As the characters converge in the North, on Winterfell, we’re left wondering about shifting alliances and who will survive. In the face of the confrontation to come, Jon Snow tries to inspire, Arya Stark seems at times terrified and confident, Daenerys’ dragons inspire wonder and fear, the armies seem invincible and deeply fragile. And a clever editing at about a minute in to the trailer might suggest that Cersei is a greater threat to the living than the army of the dead.

If understanding the European Middle Ages can help us understand Game of Thrones (and vice-versa), then we might understand this final season as Westeros’ apocalypse. This is the final end of (their) history, the cosmic battle between good and evil that’s been building since the very first scene of the show, the return of the White Walkers. Even the gods might be involved, as the trailer shows Jon returning to the red-leaved Weirwood Tree and Beric’s flaming sword, given him by the Lord of Light.

But another model for understanding what’s happening in the trailer seems to be JRR Tolkien. I’m reminded of the end of The Hobbit and the “Battle of Five Armies.” There too different armies amassed and were about to fight one another, ignoring a very real threat to them all. In Tolkien, it all worked out in the end, but not without losses, not without sacrifice in the face of the very real threat posed by the forces of evil.

In both cases, the medieval retellings of the apocalyptic drama and in Tolkien’s fantasy version, the good guys ultimately win. In Game of Thrones, that’s not so clear. The opening scene of the trailer has Arya fleeing in terror, seemingly from the Night King, who’s inside Winterfell’s walls. In the trailer, Arya says she looks forward to seeing another face for death, and after all, as the show has reminded us again and again, Valar Morghulis – “all men must die.” If the army of the dead wins, that might be the lesson of the final season of Game of Thrones.
