The first episode of Game of Thrones S8 was relatively death-free and peaceful… we doubt that’s going to last.

*Spoilers ahead if you haven’t caught up with episode one*

Not even Jon’s epic first ride on a dragon could lighten up what was a very dark start to Season 8. Speaking of Jon, or rather we should say, Aegon Targaryen, what will happen between him and Queen Daenerys now that he finally knows he’s the rightful heir to the Iron Throne?

And why isn’t he freaking out that she’s his aunt?

Thank goodness this preview for episode 2 is out, or the fan theories would drive us nuts.

We can’t wait for next week’s episode to drop – especially as each one is getting just a little bit longer.

  • Season 8, Episode 1 will be 54 minutes.
  • Season 8, Episode 2 will be 58 minutes.
  • Season 8, Episode 3 is one hour and 22 minutes.
  • Season 8, Episode 4 is one hour and 18 minutes.
  • Season 8, Episode 5 is one hour and 20 minutes.
  • Season 8, Episode 6, the finale is also one hour and 20 minutes.

What’s happening in episode 2?

The Kingslayer looks like he has bigger things to worry about than throwing Bran out of a window when he’s brought before Daenerys. She is not amused to meet her father’s killer. But we’re not sure that she’ll have time to mull over it because Winterfell is under attack! Has the army of white walkers arrived?

Watch Game of Thrones S8 on Mondays on M-Net (only) at 03:00, and later the same day on M-Net and Showmax at 22:00.
