Everyone Takes the Iron Throne in Character Posters for Final 'Game of Thrones' Season

The ominous teaser suggests things do not go well for anyone's favorite character.

Everyone dies.

That's the basic concept behind the latest "Game of Thrones" teaser released on Tuesday.

The ominous clip, entitled "aftermath", shows Winterfell decimated by battle — and not a single person left alive.

While no characters appear in the eerily quiet minute-long clip, the items strewn throughout the Stark castle suggest things do not go well for anyone's favorite character.

The teaser opens on a shot of a flag depicting the direwolf sigil, torn and flapping forlorn in the wind above a snow-covered courtyard; by the ramparts are unused dragonglass arrows and blades, the only weapons capable of stopping White Walkers.

Spotted amongst the ruins are Tyrion Lannister's Hand of the Queen pin, as well as his brother's golden hand.

Daenerys Targaryen's three-headed dragon brooch lies tangled in a wheel, symbolic of the one she vowed to smash by re-conquering Westeros.

Robert Baratheon's feather, left by his deceased love Lyanna Stark's grave in the very first episode, makes yet another reappearance, fluttering down from the breached walls. It comes to rest on the splintered remains of Bran's wheelchair.

Arya's sword Needle is stabbed into the ground, while the final shot shows Jon Snow's Longclaw buried in the drift.

None of the accessories' owners are seen in the entire trailer; however the new poster is less subtle, showing each of the remaining characters dead and buried in the snow.

Their bodies are neatly arranged, as the White Walkers are wont to do, this time into the shape of the Iron Throne they are all fighting for.

The final season of "Game of Thrones" kicks off on HBO on April 14.
