Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 Teases Winter's Arrival at 'Eastwatch'

Game of Thrones just keeps getting bigger and better.


Updated:August 8, 2017, 4:49 PM IST

It's no surprise that the makers of Game of Thrones are trying to bring the best of action, battles, and blood spills to make the penultimate season the best so far. The last episode, titled Spoils of War, has undoubtedly been bombastic with the Dragon Queen flying her way on Drogon to lead the battle against the Lannisters herself. The next episode, titled Eastwatch, takes you a step closer to the great war within The Wall.

The teaser unveiled by HBO begins with Daenerys making clear that no blood will be spilled, no lives will be taken if the Lannisters decide to bend the knee and join her ensemble army. "Bend the knee and join me. Or refuse and die," she warns (or rather threatens).

In the previous episode, we saw how Tryion advised Daenerys against the war and this time, it's Varys who counsels Tyrion and says that he needs to find a way and make Daenerys listen. Is he referring to save the mother of Dragons to follow the same path of a ruthless monarch?

Meanwhile, a furious Cersei makes no bones about the fact that she's ready to thrash anyone and everyone who comes in the way to claim the Iron Throne. It seems a face to face battle between Cersei and Daenerys isn't as far as we thought.

Jon Snow, still true to his motive of fighting the dead, tells Daenerys and Varys that Bran saw the Night King and his army marching towards Eastwatch. "Bad things are coming," cites Ser Davos Seaworth and coming from him, one should brace themselves not just for bad, but for worst too. Will the dragon queen let go of 'bend-the-knee' rant and join hands with the Lord of Winterfell, remains to be seen.

Amid all this, one scene which would perhaps play a major role in how the events unfold is when Daenerys' dragons and Jon finally meet. Nothing more than a glimpse of their first meeting lies in the teaser but that meeting could make or break the anticipated union. How dragons react to him will eventually decide how soon Jon and Daenerys find out they're actually related.

The 'game of thrones' just keeps getting better and better. Will Monday come any sooner?
