We're down to Cersei, Euron and The Golden Company versus Daenerys, Jon and the rest of the Winterfell survivors
Game of Thrones has reached its endgame.
In Episode 4, we saw those who survived the Army of the Dead at Winterfell mourn the death of their comrades, celebrate victory, and strategise how to conquer the enemy in Westeros.
Speaking of which, Cersei, Euron and the Golden Company have clearly had enough of a headstart to prepare themselves for their new visitors, which was evident by what happened in the latter half of the episode.
As Jon Snow and the rest of the soldiers arrive from Winterfell, the penultimate Game of Thrones episode could witness an epic battle on par with The Long Night and maybe even more deaths of some of our favourite characters.
Here’s how to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 on your TV, PC or any mobile device.
