While the posters feature the popular contenders for the throne, there are some unlikely contenders that we see atop the Iron Throne as well. In the world of GoT, one can never tell how the tables turn.

It is quite a surprise to see Melisandre here as we last saw her leaving Dragonstone for Volantis. Before leaving, she told Daenerys that both she and Jon are the ‘prince that was promised’.

It is also surprising to see Missandei and Grey Worm on the Iron Throne as they are yet to become major players in the fight for the throne.

In the eighth and the final season of the show, the forces in Westeros seem to be uniting to fight against The Night King as he poses the biggest threat with his Army of the Dead. Cersei is yet to understand the gravity of this situation so it remains to be seen what the role of King’s Landing would be even after witnessing a White Walker in season 7.

Game of Thrones Season 8 starts airing from April 14.
