'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 4 trailer confirms three key characters survive the Battle of Winterfell

Last night's episode of Game of Thrones, which featured the epic Battle of Winterfell, was an absolutely nail-biting milestone in the hit HBO series. However, even though our heroes have managed to triumph over the vast army of the dead, there are three more episodes to go, and everything to play for in the future. Remember, Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy are still prepared to wipe out the survivors with the Golden Company and a fleet of ships.

However, there were a few characters that people were unsure of the fates of by the end of the episode, which has left many fans pretty worried. However, the trailer for the upcoming episode has revealed that these three key characters actually managed to survived the Battle of Winterfell, which came as a huge relief to many.

Check out the preview for the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones below:

To be fair, these characters are technically animals, but they still hold a place in viewers' hearts. However, Ghost the direwolf and both dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal can be seen in the preview, despite being involved in the tense battle.

But not everyone survived the brutal battle:

On Twitter, a number of grateful fans have already reacted to the news. For example, one Twitter user with the handle @KingCertify wrote: "The whole episode I was straight-faced at the deaths till I saw Drogon get swarmed by 'ants'... I was like 'ok Dany is there, he’s ok' then Dany got knocked off. [sic]"

Meanwhile, someone else wrote: "I swear when Ghost charged with the Dothraki I knew it won't end well. Thank the seven gods he's alive."
