“Game of Thrones” Season 8, Episode 2 Preview

Jaime Lannister Winterfell Trial 802 Season 8 Daenerys Targaryen Jon Snow Sansa Stark Tyrion Lannister Varys Missandei Jorah Brianne Davos

The second episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 is right around the corner! While it remains without a title for now, there is plenty of anticipation and fervor awaiting before the Battle of Winterfell arrives on our screens and doorsteps.

The first scene we see in the preview is that of Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), the infamous Kinglsayer, standing before the court at Winterfell. As expected, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is less than thrilled to see the sight of the man who had killed her father. This may perhaps be a bit of a misdirect as Daenerys is eager to not be her father, but meeting the man who had stabbed her father through the heart may nevertheless bring forth an emotional, trauma-imbued confrontation. It looks like only Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) may be happy to see his brother.

Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Daenerys may be finding common ground in not trusting Cersei (Lena Headey), which could signal an overcoming of hostilities between the two. It also suggests that the news of Cersei’s betrayal is now within the halls of Winterfell, which is probably not great news for Tyrion.

Arya (Maisie Williams) voices her desire to see this new face of Death as the Winterfell preparations for battle fill the screen in quick edits. Jorah (Iain Glen) appears to be holding Samwell Tarly’s Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane; Daenerys approaches a brooding Jon (Kit Harington) in the crypts beneath Winterfell, in a scene that could mean Daenerys is now also aware of Jon’s parentage; Arya loosens a bow and arrow in another echo to the series premiere; and last but not least, Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) announces that Winterfell has until sunrise, if that, to prepare for the Night King and the Army of the Dead.
