Game Of Thrones Season 8's first episode finally premiered and it has been an episode of reunions. While it was a delight to watch our favorite characters light up the screen again, we bet you enjoyed listening to the opening credits theme once again. If you have been a follower of the series, by now, you probably know that the opening credits sequence has always been a crucial one. The usual drill for this credits scene is when the camera hovers over the map of Westeros and we see the various Houses with their sigils.
The season 8 opening credits sequence is quite new though. What's interesting is that it picks up from the bits of the last season and also shows us what lies ahead. Here's what you can spot in the new opening credits.
1. Winter is Coming while the Wall is left with a hole
The theme takes off with the scene of ice, representing the white walkers approaching the Wall while a portion of it is already in the ruins. Last season, we saw Viserion turn into an ice dragon and break down a portion of the wall. Well, if the opening credits are to go by, looks like the white walkers may move past the wall much sooner than we think.

2. What do the three dragons in King's Landing mean?
If you look closely, we see three dragon heads in King's Landing in this sequence. We do remember seeing the Dragon skulls early on in the series at King's Landing but including them in the theme before showing the Iron Throne could mean that, Targaryens may rule after all. Another possibility is that they are Queen Cersei's crowning jewels after she defeats Daenerys and kills her dragons and showcases it to the world with pride.
3. The Crypts may have a bigger role to play
Another key addition in the opening credits is the Winterfell crypts. While we know they hint at Jon Snow's true identity, it seems there could be more secrets hidden here than we know. [SPOILER] Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1: First Nude, Foursome Scene of the Season Overjoys Twitter.

4. The Iron Throne
Clearly, it is the finale and the final destination is the most-discussed, the Iron Throne. In the new credits sequence, the throne currently shows a Lannister sigil above it. Surely, that is for now and we can't wait to see what happens in the finale.
