It’s starting to get very cold in Westeros—just as Game of Thrones is heating up.
Winter has arrived in the Seven Kingdoms, pushing Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) to rally their allies as they prepare for war—and the impending arrival of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her three dragons.
“Stormborn” ended with some fireworks as Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) wrecked Dany’s fleet, kidnapping Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) and Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) in the process. The previews for the next episode teased a major meeting between Jon and Dany, as well as the prelude to a huge fight between the Lannisters and their enemies. (Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is expected to appear as a Lannister soldier—could the battle happen this week? And how many foes will “Thor” take with him?)
The third episode of the season is ominously titled “The Queen’s Justice.” The official synopsis: Daenerys (Clarke) holds court, while Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift, and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.
Here’s a sneak peek at what could happen in the third episode.
