Following on from its first-look cover reveal featuring Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Entertainment Weekly has now shared a brief description of the season eight premiere of Game of Thrones, which sees our characters readying themselves for the War for the Dawn.
“Season 8 opens at Winterfell with an episode that contains plenty of callbacks to the show’s pilot. Instead of King Robert’s procession arriving, it’s Daenerys and her army. What follows is a thrilling and tense intermingling of characters – some of whom have never previously met, many who have messy histories – as they all prepare to face the inevitable invasion of the Army of the Dead.”
The report goes on to state that this inevitable confrontation at Winterfell will then have its own dedicated episode, directed by Miguel Sapochnik (‘Battle of the Bastards’), which will apparently feature “the most sustained action sequence ever made for television or film”, packed with wall-to-wall action as it “intercuts between multiple characters involved in their own survival storylines.”
Roll on Summer 2019!
