The trailer for the second episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 is here and things are getting intense
It's finally here, you guys!
Game of Thrones is back, and ahead of the eighth and final season, anticipation has reached fever pitch, as we become fit to burst over those burning questions from the end of season seven.
Did Tormund survive? How will Daenarys and Jon Snow's relationship end (other than spectacularly)? Will our heroes and villains survive the onslaught of the White Walkers? And most importantly; who, if anybody, will survive to sit upon the Iron Throne?
Here's the all-new opening credits for the first episode of season eight of Game of Thrones, just for a little bit of context:
As we all sat down to watch episode one of this final swansong of the HBO fantasy epic, most viewers will recognise that at most, one of those questions has been answered - Tormund's back, folks, but possibly not for long, but the big questions are still out there, waiting to be resolved over this dramatic final season.
As you might expect, there was mostly table-setting ahead of the season's five remaining bumper episodes, but this being Game of Thrones, there was plenty to talk about.
There was the return of a fan favourite, as well as the reveal of what happened to a terrible, no-good character who should never (in this writer's opinion) have been in the show.
But once the credits began to roll and Ramin Djawadi's score began to play at the end of, attention turned rapidly to next week's episode, and wouldn't you know it - HBO's way ahead of everyone when buying tickets for the Game of Thrones hype train. All aboard!
Check out the trailer for the second episode of Game of Thrones, season eight:
Oh, snap, it's about to go down! Jaime, fresh from walking away from his sister/lover Cersei Lannister, has arrived in Winterfell to meet Daenarys Targaryen. Sparks, obviously, will fly. Meanwhile, the Mother of Dragons is clashing with her beau's sister Sansa Stark, and Arya is speaking rather forebodingly.
Classic trailer stuff, really. But episode two is also teasing a pretty big battle, and we know from quite a few directors connected to the series that it's about to go down these next few episodes. This is one heck of a preview, don't you think?
Well, there we have it, Throners. If, after last night's shenanigans you're not already super stoked for the next six weeks of Game of Thrones, this is the perfect remedy for that. If this preview didn't do anything for you, then you are truly lost.
