Before we take a look at next week’s episode, you should know this new trailer contains plenty of spoilers, so make sure you only watch it after you’ve seen last night’s episode.

Also in “The Queen’s Justice”, the Unsullied will lead an assault on Casterly Rock, the ancestral stronghold of House Lannister, to seize it. Fans will also see the return of Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) in King’s Landing to deliver his finest gift to Queen Cersei Lannister.
And according to actress Jessica Henwick – whose character Nymeria Sand suffered a violent death on Sunday’s “Thrones” – there is one tell-tale sign that lets actors know when they’re about to get the axe.
She explained: “Gemma had hurt her back so there were some stunts she couldn’t do, so I had to start kissing this poor stunt double and she was so terrified!”
Jon has plenty of warriors, knights and stone cold killers to call on, but one character has always been more reliable than anyone else, his beloved direwolf Ghost. Robb’s wolf, Grey Wind, was murdered in the aftermath of the Red Wedding; Sansa’s Lady was killed by Ned Stark as punishment handed down from Robert Baratheon; Bran’s wolf, Summer, was killed by Wights in Season 6; and Rickon’s Shaggy Dog was decapitated by the Umbers. Can we show you to the Dragonglass stores?
Finally, the season’s first big battle scene came at the end of the episode.
“Yeah, it was amusing”. In an impassioned speech, the eunuch convinces his Khalisi that he will serve her faithfully and notify her if he ever feels she is doing a disservice to her people. “But I made a decision to do it”. He’s made quite a few of them in the past. “I don’t know“, Sam replies. I was excited because on the page you could feel the scope of it. And the best part about this episode is that one has not two, but so many high points to choose from. For this, the audience can’t feel the heat on their face from the pyrotechnics going off or feel the wave machine trying to knock us off our feet, or the sweat dripping off our faces.
Martin, whose “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels were adapted into HBO’s hit medieval fantasy series “Game of Thrones”, now is working on the sixth installment, “Winds of Winter”, continuing the story from 2011’s “A Dance With Dragons”.
