Although fans had begun theorizing about the hidden messages in the video even before its debut, one seemingly Game of Thrones-inspired moment took some Swifties by surprise. In the final seconds of the new visual, Tay looks directly into the camera as her eyes turn an electric blue similar to the eye color of the White Walkers in the HBO drama.
There is also an earlier scene in which Swift sits atop an armored horse that is apparently giving some viewers major Night King vibes. “I THOUGHT @taylorswift13 IS THE WHITE WALKER FROM GAME OF THRONES,” user @Crystelemenopi captioned a screenshot of the moment.
