Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Photos: Tales From the Crypt
Quite understandably, HBO is playing it close to the vest when it comes to spoilers for the final season of Game of Thrones.
As a result of this extreme secrecy, even details like episode titles are being kept under wraps, and fans are forced to fight over crumbs of information like the lowliest peasants in Flea Bottom.
So here’s what little we know so far about Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2:
It’ll be longer than the season premiere — clocking in at 58 minutes — but still be considerably shorter than the four feature-length installments to follow.
Also, it should provide a nice counterweight to all the pastel cheeriness of the Easter festivities that will precede it — though it might be just as concerned with resurrection from the dead.
Oh, and we have the following photos from the episode, generously provided by HBO execs who know we’ll drive ourselves mad dissecting them for details.
Join us as we do exactly that, won’t you?
1. Crypt Keepers
Something is going down in the crypts at Winterfell. You can bet whatever scheme is being hatched in Varys’ noggin is way more frightening than all those decaying Stark corpses.
2. Hatching a Plan
Jon and Arya are there as well. We guess they got over their little feud about how smart Sansa is.
3. Drinking and Knowing Things
Naturally, Tyrion brought a goblet of red to the meeting. It’s stressful always being the most knowledgeable person in the room.
4. Sam’s Concerned
Sam Tarly’s got a lot on his mind these days. He has a kid and a baby mama to worry about, an army of the undead is inching closer by the day, and now he’s forced to make nice with the woman who torched his husband and brother.
5. Bran Ruminates
And then there’s Bran, doing what he does best — staring creepily into middle-distance and making everyone uneasy about what sort of earth-shattering insight he’s about to reveal.
6. Busted Big Time
Speaking of Bran, the guy who put him in that wheelchair is about to be in some serious sh-t. In addition to that fateful shove in S1E1, Kingslayer Jaime Lannister got that name by icing the Khaleesi’s father.
