Now Playing: Game Of Thrones Episode 4 Official Preview Trailer (Season 8)
Game of Thrones Season 8 continued this past Sunday with Episode 3, which featured the dramatic Battle of Winterfell. It was the franchise’s longest episode ever, but what’s coming up next on the show? Game of Thrones spoiler warning — don’t read on unless you’ve seen Episode 3.
Following the airing of Episode 3, HBO has released a teaser video for Episode 4, and it hints at yet another battle to come. We don’t want to give anything away, but suffice it to say it teases another impending battle, this time between Dany and Jon’s forces and Cersei’s. We also get a brief peek at Jon’s direwolf Ghost, who seemingly went missing in Episode 3. Check out the video above to see the teaser video. (HBO has also shared a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Episode 3 and the Battle of Winterfell.)
The next Game of Thrones episode airs Sunday, May 5. It’s another long one, coming in at 78 minutes. The final two episodes, Episode 5 and Episode 6, are each 80 minutes in length. That will wrap up Season 8 and the show overall, although at least one spin-off (a prequel) is in the works. One of the other spin-offs that was in consideration, however, has been canceled.
Episode 3 enjoyed record ratings; it was the show’s most-watched episode ever. That doesn’t come as a huge surprise, given the general hype around its runtime and the scale of its battle, which was set to mark the conclusion of a major storyline dating back to the very first episode of the show. It was jam-packed with Easter Eggs and references. We also have a breakdown of what happened to Rhaegal, as well as a broader look at the Night King.
While the mainline Game of Thrones show is ending, George R.R. Martin is still working on new books, including The Winds of Winter.
