It’s time for a battle beyond the wall – and we don’t anticipate everyone is coming out of it unscathed. Especially because, in a shortened season like this one, this is the penultimate episode of the season for Game of Thrones, and we know what that means.
And, you know, battles. This time, with the white walkers, surely, as Jon, Jorah, Thoros, Beric, The Hound, Gendry and Tormund head to what looks like a very, very stupid mission beyond the Wall.
This just can’t end well, can it? Not unless Dany swoops in with the dragons.
Let’s start the prayer circle for Tormund – he still seems like the most likely candidate to bite it. After all, Jon can’t die yet, Gendry just reappeared and do we care enough for either Jorah, Thoros, Beric or The Hound for them to be the ones to bite it?
Well, maybe Jorah. So let’s pray for him too.
The pictures also show the Stark sisters at Winterfell and Sansa getting a missive that she’s sharing with Brienne (can we send Brienne to the dragon pit meeting so she meets Jaime? My shipper heart is asking). It also shows Dany talking to Tyrion by the fire, and walking among the dragons in a white getup that’s very – well, North.
