Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 preview

The trailer for the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones has been released – and it seems like Daenerys has a surprise in store for her enemies.

After an instalment that saw the dragon queen suffer yet more losses, there’s no doubt that Dany (Emilia Clarke) will bring the heat for what she’s dubbed “The Last War.”

The dialogue-free clip sets things in motion for what is sure to be an action-packed final two episodes.

It doesn’t reveal much other than the fact that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his army arrive in King’s Landing where Euron Greyjoy (Pilous Asbaek) and his team of mercenaries are attempting to take down Dany’s sole surviving dragon.

All the while, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) watches on from high.

You can watch the trailer below.

The latest episode featured a scene involving Brienne of Tarth that have prompted fans to accuse the episode’s writers – showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss – of “hitting ne lows”

The final season of Game of Thrones continues every Sunday. Our extensive ranking of every character in the series – from worst to best – is below.

The show will be available on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK.
