With all the preparations out of the way, “Game of Thrones” is finally going to war against the dead.
In the teaser for next the third episode of the HBO fantasy epic’s final season, fans get their first look at what promises to be the biggest battle the show has ever put on screen.
The 82-minute episode, the longest of the season, most of the show’s remaining characters will stand with thousands of others to do battle against the White Walkers and their army of the dead outside the gates of Winterfell.
The teaser doesn’t give away much, but the brief glimpses look truly epic, with fear mounting until finally Brienne of Tarth yells, “Stand your ground!”
Fans are eagerly anticipating the battle, but also afraid for the fates of so many of their favourite characters.
