And like every episode in "Game of Thrones", not much is revealed as to what could happen next. He grew up as Ned Stark's ward but betrayed Robb during the War of the Five Kings when he wrested control of Winterfell to earn the respect of his father Balon. It really does look like "The Spoils of War" will lead to that epic field battle from the trailers that sees the might of the Lannister army take on Daenerys's winged wonders.
The bulk of the new photos take place on Dragonstone, where members of Team Dany are looking downcast. Last week Jon Snow showed up and met his auntie in the flesh (though neither realizes their relation) and this coming Sunday, another guest or two pop in. The description only goes, "Daenerys fights back".
At King's Landing, Cersei (Lena Headey) is shown standing in her new Westeros map room. Perhaps. That would put Cersei in a sticky situation with the Iron Bank.
Finally - and this my favorite shot from the bunch - Jaime and Bronn look thunderstruck by something in the distance.
The trailer also showed us a anxious looking Sansa burying herself in some scrolls, and the promo image reveals an equally concerned #SophieTurner looking like a rabbit in the headlights. All fans need now is for Jon Snow to return from Dragonstone and the reunion will be complete.
Brienne and Podrick are in the courtyard, looking at...something else.
If you've been keeping pace with Game of Thrones season 7, you'll know that all of the prominent chess pieces of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire are beginning to cross paths. But for Theon's sake, let's hope Sansa told Jon the whole story about her flight to freedom. We'll have a recap of the episode after it has aired as well as a preview of the next episode.
