Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3: See all the new photos


Fans may want to brighten their screens to get the best look at the photos from Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3, which remains nameless.

As is quickly becoming tradition, it seems we won’t learn the name of this week’s episode of Game of Thrones until after it airs this coming Sunday — but despite all that, HBO has been kind enough to share a very few number of photos from the episode to come, which promises to bring the Battle of Winterfell to our screens.

We’ll start, actually, with quite the intriguing photo that shows the castle at a distance.

We’d know those backs anywhere. Presumably, Jon and Daenerys are planning to swoop down and start crushing the undead from behind on Rhaegal and Drogon, respectively. However, it’s a good strategy (in some respects) to have the defenders so well-lit. They can see what they’re doing — but they can also see what’s coming for them. That’s a cold comfort, pun intended.

But here we have Jon on the ground, looking quite surprised about whatever he’s looking at. He’s faced the White Walkers before. What could strike fear into his heart? He also looks much more disheveled, a la the Battle of the Bastards.

As he promised, Jaime Lannister is fighting at Brienne of Tarth’s side, though neither of them look particularly steady despite her exhortations to her wing of the army in the trailer. Fighting the undead will do that to you.

Meanwhile, down in the probably not-safe crypts, expect a good Varys and Tyrion conversation, at least before all hell breaks loose. Have we ever seen Varys run, out of curiosity?

Up on the walls, meanwhile, Sansa (in her armor) is having one last conversation with her sister. Only one of them is good at fighting, but Sansa is a leader and a figurehead all the same. The fighters need all the encouragement and morale they can get.

However, Sansa is down in the crypts later, as is probably proper and expected. Note that she’s sitting by herself, although this is a vertical image, so it’s not like others can’t be right there. Could we get a Sansa and Tyrion conversation as well?
