Warning: this article contains Game of Thrones season eight, episode four spoilers.
HBO has released a set of teaser images for episode five of Game of Thrones‘ final season, and as you can see, pretty much everybody except Cersei Lannister looks deeply concerned.
That’s no surprise, given her shiny new mercenaries, the Golden Company, seem to have finally arrived from Essos (sans elephants). The depleted and worn out Targaryen forces are outside the walls of King’s Landing, and Cersei’s already impressive defenses are bolstered by Captain Strickland’s fresh fighters.
It makes sense that Jon Snow, Daenerys, Tyrion Lannister, and Grey Worm look tired and defeated, given Missandei’s execution at the end of episode four and the decimation of their armies at the hands of the Night King and the White Walkers, but why does Euron Greyjoy look so worried? We’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out.
