We can’t believe we have to write this, but if you’re not part of the 3am club, setting your alarm religiously to watch Games of Thrones as it’s broadcast in South Africa – there’s a fair chance this article is full of spoilers. So make like Dany’s dragons and leave, okay?
*Update: The full boxset of Game of Thrones S1-8 is ready to be binge-watched on Showmax.*
In episode 4, Euron properly destroyed Danaerys’ fleet. It was a whitewash, made worse when the dragon Rhaegal was shot from the sky by super-powered scorpion bolts. Queen Cersei basically gave Tyrion the bird when he pleaded for the life of Missandei, Jamie gave Brienne the bird and is galloping across Westeros to join his twin. Or murder her, depending on which fan theory you’re into.
How can two more episodes wrap up all these plot twists?
What’s happening in the teaser for episode 5?
From the looks of things, Tyrion is properly gobsmacked at every turn as the army of the North and what remains of Danaerys’s legions gather at the gates of King’s Landing. The only one who looks more astounded is Euron, who is peering into the sky as if seeing… a dragon, of course. The internet is rife with speculation that there may, in fact, be more baby dragons that Euron is seeing up high.
Remember when Drogon disappeared for Season 4? Apparently, dragons are genderfluid…
