Game of Thrones Battle of Winterfell Preview
The final season of Game of Thrones will reach its midpoint following what promises to be an amazing episode. At 88 total minutes, the longest GoT episode this season or ever, the Battle of Winterfell is practically a movie unto itself.
In the previous episode, characters we’ve grown to love or hate over the past decade each handled their potential final night alive in different ways.
Some characters, like Jaime Lannister and newly knighted Brienne of Tarth, saw their arcs seemingly complete. Others, like Sansa Stark, haven’t quite found a resolution as of yet.
What’s clear is the Night King and his massive army have arrived at Winterfell. They’ll attack, but the Night King’s true motives besides the destruction of man remain a mystery.
Bran suspects the Night King is after him so he’s going to go to the Godswood with guards in hopes of luring the Night King there. Defeat the Night King and his armies will fall.
At least that is the plan for Winterfell’s defense.
“This is survival horror. That’s the whole episode for me,” director Miguel Sapochnik told EW. “I find the best battle sequences are when you have a strong point of view, and here the point of view is objective even when you go from one person’s story to another.”
Whether the Battle of Winterfell wraps up tonight or not one thing is clear: the odds of multiple recognizable characters being eliminated are quite high.
