Still here? Well, then you’ll be reeling after that season 2 opener offered up one of the most grim moments for the Game of Thrones prequel yet.

The new tease begins with King Aegon screaming, "I’ll kill them," seemingly right in the crosshairs of the murder of young Jaehaerys, before he declares war. Elsewhere, we see Daemon’s choice being questioned by Rhaenyra as he heads to a creepy castle where he meets Simon Russell Beale’s character. Both sides also plot out war, and how they’ll involve their dragons in the conflict, while tensions rise in Westeros. 

That’s not all either, as there are some intriguing new details, including some dragon eggs and a mysterious new character who fans are obsessing over. At the 1:12 mark, a figure in a red cloak can be seen running through King’s Landing, and viewers are trying to work out just who she is.

"Who do we think is the blonde in the red cloak," one fan questioned on Reddit before some intriguing theories followed. One suggested that, "It looks like Elinda Massey, Rhaenyra’s lady in waiting," while another thought it could be a Game of Thrones character. "My first thought was a red priestess like Melisandre. Might not be anyone we know from the book. Might be a stretch, but I'm starting to think it’s Alys Rivers," they speculated

Melisandre is potentially possible, given that she’s been alive for hundreds of years by the time of Thrones, while Alys is an important book character around this time too. It remains to be seen though just who this mystery figure is.
