In the long tradition of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the penultimate episode is almost always the biggest of any given season and that may hold true for the upcoming eighth and final season as well.
After something of a brief respite and stage setting fourth episode, next weekend’s fifth episode offers the big showdown between the forces of the two queens – Daenerys and Cersei – with the battle now at King’s Landing.
Previously actress Emilia Clarke said: “[They] are going to be mental. Episode 5 is bigger. Episode 5 is ‘Ahhhh.’ I mean 4 and 5 and 6, they’re all insane… Find the biggest TV you can.”
To prepare, HBO has unveiled the trailer for the episode which will broadcast May 12th on HBO.
