The second to last Game of Thrones Season 7 episode was so action-packed that we'd understand if you wanted the finale to be a little more reflective. Peaceful, even. After six episodes filled with scorched-earth dragon battles, wild revelations, and hints of romance, we could all use a breather. Maybe the 81-minute finale will mostly consist of Dany and Jon getting to know each other on that boat? Something low-key.
Of course, this is unlikely, and if the trailer HBO just released is any indication, the finale is going to be as crammed with conflicts, schemes, and bloodshed as the previous six hours of television. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have had their foot on the gas for all of Season 7 -- much to the occasional frustration of continuity and map obsessed fans -- and it's unlikely they'll be slowing down for an episode of quiet character beats any time soon. We're all on the back of a dragon now. Hold tight.
What exactly is this new trailer teasing? Well, for one thing we know Sansa will be feeling moody and isolated, staring out at Winterfell in one of her many coats while she decides how to deal with her sister and that bag of face-masks.
We'll also finally get to see how Grey Worm's life has been going since he had sex, sailed off to Casterly Rock, then wound up in a trap set by Euron Greyjoy. There will be a bunch of ships, if you're into that. Theon to the rescue? The Dothraki?
And, oh, yeah, there's a dragonpit. Sorry, the dragonpit. It's a big deal. Here's what it looks like in the show:
