MANILA, Philippines – A lot of things happened – many of them, literally life-altering – in the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, setting viewers up for one hell of a series finale.
And it's going to be dark and gloomy, if the trailer for the final episode ever is any indication.
** SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8, EPISODE 5 FOLLOW **
The trailer begins with Ser Davos and Jon and Tyrion inspecting King's Landing – or at least what's left of it. In the last episode, entitled "The Bells," Dany led the sacking of King's Landing despite Cersei waving the white flag.
We also see Arya Stark surviving the aftermath of the "last war" as shots of the Dothraki and Unsullied forces – who helped in the pillage of King's Landing – cheer in formation.
We end with Daenerys seeing for herself the destruction she, Drogon, and her army have brought into the Westeros capital.
Game of Thrones, which is based on the book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin, airs every Monday at 9 am and 10 pm in the Philippines over HBO. It's available on demand at HBO Go beginning 9 am Mondays. – Rappler.com
