The Trailer For Episode Four Of Game Of Thrones Is Here


After the utter madness, sadness, and - more often than not - darkness of episode three of the eighth and final Game of Thrones season, here's the trailer for next week's episode to keep you entertained until next Monday.

After the Night King was dramatically stabbed straight in the chest following some textbook knife-work by Arya Stark, attention is now turned to the south.

With the army of the dead defeated - or at least, so we think - we now have to figure out what becomes of the living following this impressive, if costly, victory.

Cersei Lannister has been sat down in King's Landing biding her time, amassing her forces - including Euron Greyjoy's Iron Fleet and the Golden Company - and clearly plans on mopping up anyone who wasn't turned into a snarling zombie following the Battle of Winterfell.

However, there are a few issues to resolve up in the North, too. If you remember, just before the horns sounded the start of the biggest battle in telly history, Jon Snow had just told Daenerys Targaryen that they are actually related and that he has (perhaps) a better claim to the Iron Throne that she does.

How much will have changed after the pair fought side by side against the army of the dead?

Well, from the trailer we can learn that Cersei is - as always - pretty happy with herself. Euron is - as always - absolutely fucking chuffed with himself, and the massed ranks at Winterfell are - as always - cold.

Dany says: "We have won the great war. Now we must win the last war."

A bold prediction given the history of Westeros.

Interestingly enough, at one point it looks as if Euron is going to propose marriage to Cersei. That doesn't often end well - just ask King Robert Baratheon and Ser Loras Tyrell

The good news is that the trailer reveals that a few characters whose future hung in the balance at the end of last week's mess are safe.

Daenerys still has two dragons, Rhaegal and Drogon. Also, much to everyone's delight, Ghost the direwolf has survived too.

He was last spotted piling into battle alongside the Dothraki horde and, given what happened to those guys, it is something of a surprise that he is still going.

But there he is.

The trailer finishes with a shot of Cersei, surveying her forces, and Dany saying: "We will rip her out, root and stem."

Strong words indeed, but when you've faced down death himself and won, you're probably feeling like fate is on your side.

Who will sit on the Iron Throne now that the Night King is vanquished? Who will make it to the final battle?

Episode four of Game of Thrones' final season will air on Sky Atlantic at 2am on Monday 6 May, before repeating in the UK at 9pm that same day.
