Trailer for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 2 Teases Battle Preparations

     April 15, 2019

The final season of Game of Thrones is underway, and it’s hard to believe we only have five episodes left. The Season 8 premiere aired last night with a bang, ending on a fiery cliffhanger, and HBO wasted no time in releasing the Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 trailer immediately after the episode ended, offering a look at what’s ahead.

While HBO is keeping episode titles under wraps until they air this year (the premiere was called “Winterfell”), we do know the first two episodes of the six-episode final season are the shortest in length, and so we can probably expect a bit more table-setting next week. Episode 3 is the longest episode of the series, running an hour and 23 minutes, so that has to mean that’s “The Battle of Winterfell” right? That would be the huge battle episode that took months to shoot and may break the record for the longest continuous action sequence ever put to film.

This trailer for Episode 2 certainly suggests that’s the case, as we see the folks at Winterfell preparing to battle the Army of the Dead and continuing to bicker amongst themselves about fealty to Queen Daenerys Targaryen. There’s also the arrival of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Jamie Lannister to deal with, who’s back in Winterfell for the first time since the pilot episode, in which he pushed Bran (who’s now super creepy and really into staring) out a window.

Those teases and more abound in the Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 trailer. Watch it below, and check back on Collider all throughout the season for tons of coverage of all things Game of Thrones.
