We have so few new episodes of Game of Thrones, so I really do think that all of the GoT stans are just getting drunk on whatever new information/theories and photos we do get. HBO released these images for Episode 2 of the final season, which is reportedly everything building up to the Battle of Winterfell, the battle between the living and the undead. The image above of Jaime Lannister looking like he’s trying to defend himself before the makeshift Winterfell council is interesting, but I think that’s largely going to be a bluff. Jaime will tell them that Cersei didn’t order her army to fight in the North and that he’s committing treason just by being there. Little does he know that Cersei is already preparing to kill him, I guess. But anyway, my assumption is still that Jaime will be fighting side-by-side with Brienne, the Starks, the Unsullied and the Dothraki when the Army of the Undead comes. It’s also my assumption that this episode is all of the preparations (military, strategy and emotional/mental preparations) for the battle, and the battle will be Episode 3.
Bran. the Three-Eyed Raven, contemplates the Weirwood Tree, which could be important in the war to come.
Daenerys with her war council – Jorah and Varys – in what looks like the crypt of Winterfell.
Possibly from the same scene, here’s Jon and Arya looking like they’re in the crypt too. I’m glad Arya is being included in possible battle strategy.
I really think this is Dany’s face after Jon tells her that he’s Aegon Targaryen.
Davos, soup maker. I bet he puts a lot of onions in that soup.
Sansa also seeks nourishment.
Grey Worm and Missandei having some kind of conversation.
And finally, Lady Lyanna Mormont IN ARMOR. This child is going to fight the undead herself, you absolutely know that. KILL THEM ALL LYANNA.
