WATCH: Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3 preview
It’s all kicking off in the third and middle episode of Season 8. Every episode of this season arrives on Showmax at 22:00 on Mondays, where all previous seasons are ready for your binge-watch catch-up.
***Update: The entire boxset of Game of Thrones S1 to S8 is now available to binge-watch on Showmax.***
That’s all it takes to get the gooseflesh to rise on our arms when we watch this preview of next week’s episode of Game of Thrones: “The Night King is coming.”
And then there are these:
“The Dead are already here.”
What’s happening in episode 3?
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
After episode 2, in which the mighty Brienne of Tarth was finally given the royal treatment after standing up for her erstwhile travelling companion Jaime Lannister, we’re really pleased to see that she’ll be back in the fray in the next episode. There are very few warriors in Game of Thrones we’d trust to lead the charge against the most fearsome army in Seven Kingdom history, and this literal giantess is right up there for us.
But reunions of old friends and the reckoning of old enemies aside, there are no two ways about it. In episode 3, the War will begin. Who will live, and who will die?
If you need a quick refresher before the next episode airs, catch up on all seven previous seasons on Showmax.
