The Trailer For Next Week's Episode Of Game Of Thrones Has Already Dropped
*** WARNING: SPOILERS ARE COMING ***
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you will no doubt have watched the first episode of the final season by now. You will also no doubt be well and truly excited for the next episode. Well, good news - HBO has already released the trailer for the second episode... though it will probably just make you all the more eager to see more.
Still, it's quite nice to have a weekly show to look forward to, rather than just having everything readily available to stream whenever you like, isn't it? Who would even want to binge watch the whole series all at once anyway? That doesn't sound ideal at all.
But if the short trailer for the second episode leaves you with an insatiable thirst for more, there is also a longer seven-minute 'featurette' promo video available to watch on YouTube, featuring interviews with the show's producers.
The first instalment of the final season certainly left us with plenty to ponder... to reiterate, SPOILERS ARE COMING.
To recap, every man and his dog/dragon were getting ready for the biggest of all the battles, which is really saying something.
In Winterfell, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen brought an army of the living to the Stark family home. Gendry, Tyrion, Varys and - who could forget? - Dany's two remaining dragons were all there as well.
For the first time in ages, all of the surviving Starks were in the same place, too.
Meanwhile, down in King's Landing, Cersei was up to her favourite hobby - plotting murder. As usual, she wanted her brother Tyrion dead. She was even willing to send Joffrey's crossbow north with Bronn to make that happen. Oh, and she might have even put out a hit on her brother/lover/father of her children Jaime, too... Classic stuff.
There was also a shitload of reunions - and who doesn't love a good reunion? The most notable of the lot came as Jon Snow was contemplating whether he should have bent the knee to Daenerys Targaryen at the Weirwood, when he heard a voice he hadn't heard in years: Arya. Despite his initial reaction being a bit cold, they eventually ran together for a hug.
This moment would have been the highlight for most people... if it wasn't for Jon Snow finally riding a dragon.
No doubt there will be plenty more to discuss this time next week.
