PREPARING FOR THE FINAL SEASON: To get ready for tonight’s episode, you’ll want to watch this preview below.
And here are some teasers that have aired.
Last week was focused on character development and a lot of things happened that fans had been waiting a long time to see. Jon Snow rode a dragon and found out about his true lineage. His lineage had been a fan theory for years and years, until the truth was finally revealed last season.
Meanwhile, Cersei hired Bronn to kill Jaime and Tyrion, and Jaime arrived in Winterfell to warn them about Cersei’s betrayal. Bran is waiting for him, but fans are probably equally excited about seeing his reunion with Brienne. But Tormund’s coming back too with a warning of his own for Jon: the Night King’s army has already moved past the Last Hearth and the Wall has been broken down with Viserion’s ice fire. Things are about to get dark and dangerous very fast.
