The official “Game of Thrones” Facebook page has posted a 360-degree-video version of the opening-credits sequence. The familiar 3D mechanical map flies around King’s Landing, Winterfell, the Wall, Braavos, Meereen and Dorne, and includes some surprises and possible hints. Here they are.
As the camera flies toward the familiar elevator on The Wall, a wolf is perched on an ice block to the left. Its pelt looks too dark for Jon Snow’s direwolf Ghost, but the Stark family’s sigil is a grey direwolf. Could it be a clue that one of the Starks will appear at the Wall?
Speaking of the Starks’ stigil: It’s hard to spot, but their grey direwolf has returned on top of Winterfell. The flayed-man sigil had roosted there since the Boltons overtook command of the Starks’ ancestral home. Will Winterfell finally be returned to Stark control?
As the map approaches Braavos, the coin that typically rolls into a building, symbolizing the Iron Bank, is missing from the interactive map. Could the Iron Bank’s coffers be in jeopardy?
Oops. The body of water just beyond The Eyrie is supposed to be labeled The Bite, but the 360-degree version accidentally plops an island in the middle of its name.
In what was surely intended to be a dramatic camera swoop, the interactive maps flies viewers right between the legs of the monolithic Braavos guardian statue. But the effect isn’t quite as grand if you look up to see that Braavos’ great Titan clearly goes commando.
