Welcome to Take the Black Live, the chat show where we dig into the latest Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire news in far too much detail. This week, Culturess editor Cheryl Wassenaar and I celebrate the release of the first official footage from Game of Thrones season 8, all three seconds of it. Is that too little to spend 10 minutes blathering about what it means? Of course not! Watch us above.

Here’s a rundown of our discussion:
- HBO released some footage from the final season of Game of Thrones. What does it mean? What does it portend? What does it reference? We pick it apart from every angle.
- Speaking of season 8, we have some fresh clues about when it will premiere. What do we make of it?
- There’s also a hint about when The Winds of Winter might come out, but I wouldn’t put too much stock in that; we’ve all been hurt before.
We also ran a giveaway where one lucky viewer got to select a Game of Thrones-themed game or puzzle from our friends at Fun.com. Congrats, Jill!
We’ll be back with another episode of Take the Black Live next Wednesday, September 5, at 4:00 p.m. If you want to watch us live, head to our Facebook page at that time!
