New Photos From Third Episode Of Game Of Thrones Season 8 Released

New Photos From Third Episode Of Game Of Thrones Season 8 Released

HBO has released some tantalising images from the upcoming third episode of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.

Don't worry, they're free from spoilers - that is, unless you haven't seen the second one yet.

If you have, here's the trailer for the upcoming episode.

As anyone who has seen Knight of the Seven Kingdoms - the aforementioned second episode - will know, a huge battle is on the horizon.

Well, it's no longer on the horizon, it's about to start banging on the front door of Winterfell.

The promotional shots released by HBO show various characters from across the world of the living in the throes of that coming fight.

Daenerys Targaryen can be seen watching Winterfell from a high vantage point. Perhaps they are commanding their troops, or perhaps they are about to ride into battle on the back of their respective dragons.

I think we all know which one of those we'd prefer to see.

Meanwhile, down in the crypts, Varys and Tyrion Lannister sit in the relative quiet looking scared. To be fair, you'd have to be double hard not to be scared when a huge army of skeletal soldiers are invading your house.

Also, when there is a man who can raise the dead at the head of this army, is the crypt the safest place to be?

The third shot shows Jon Snow, surrounded by fire. He looks utterly aghast at something behind the camera. What has he seen? Is the Night King taking to the field of battle on the ice dragon formerly known as Viserion?

Is the Night King even there at all, or does he have other things on his mind?

One thing that is revealed is that Jaime Lannister and the newly knighted Brienne of Tarth will fight alongside one another at last.

Another photo shows them readying themselves to take on the advancing horde.

Sansa Stark takes centre stage for the remaining two photographs. In one she stands atop the battlements of Winterfell with her sister Arya - the pair look deep in thought about something.

If anything, Sansa looks like she's just heard a revelation from her sister. Interesting stuff.

In the final shot, Sansa is giving someone - or something - some of her patented side-eye while sitting on a chair. Does that mean she survives the battle and the living win?

As ever, we'll have to wait to find out.

But wait. Have you seen that creepy face peeking through the curtains behind her?

Yeah, that one.

What do you reckon is going to happen? Who - if anyone - is going to make it?

Head over to Game of Thrones: Westeros Posting on Facebook and let us know what you think. You've only got three episodes left after this one to let it all out.

Sky Atlantic will broadcast the third episode of the final series of Game of Thrones at 2am on Monday 29 April, then again at 9pm the same day.
