Game of Thrones season 7 premiered on Sumday night on Sky Atlantic to even more fanfare than usual after an extended hiatus, and now a teaser for the second episode of the new season has been released.
*Spoilers for GOT season 7 to follow*
The promo video for episode 2, Stormborn, suggests a slightly more accelerated pace than the premiere, which featured
Jim Broadbent’s debut performance and a jarring cameo from Ed Sheeran.
In the clip, tension is mounting between Daenerys and the denizens of Westeros.
“A Targaryen cannot be trusted,” a lord warns King Jon in Winterfell, while Cersei says: “The mad king’s daughter will destroy the realm.”
It’s good to see the action kicking off, considering that the penultimate season of the show will be its shortest yet, with only seven episodes. That epic final battle we were promised in the second season 7 trailer is well and truly on the way.
