Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Preview
Game of Thrones returned to begin its final season by paying homage to the series premiere on more than one occasion.
A different group of characters and their army arrived at Winterfell as a young child looked on in amazement. Even better, Bran Stark and Jamie Lannister locked eyes for the first time since the series premiere’s final moments.
Death looms on the horizon as the Night King and his army head straight toward Winterfell. They already laid waste to another castle to the north and claimed its armies for their own.
Previews tell us that the Battle for Winterfell is imminent but not likely coming in Season 8 Episode 2 aka Episode 69. It’s more likely to happen in Episode 3 which not coincidentally has the longest run-time of any episode in the entire series.
Things we except to move forward in Episode 2 include the trial of Jaime Lannister in Winterfell, Bron’s orders to take out Tyrion and Jaime with the same crossbow used to kill Tywin, and how Sam Tarly aligns himself following the news that Daenerys murdered his father and brother.
Here’s a complete rundown of Game of Thrones Season 8 episode TV airings on HBO.
