Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 preview: Cersei has a storm coming as Daenerys plans to 'rip her out root and stem'

Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 preview: Cersei has a storm coming as Daenerys plans to 'rip her out root and stem'


In the Battle of Winterfell, we lost heroes - Theon Greyjoy, Melisandre, Lady Lyanna Mormont, Beric Dondarrion, Eddison Tollett, Jorah Mormont, and countless Dothraki and the Unsullied but clearly, that isn't nearly enough. Next week, 'Game of Thrones'  is planning to make us lose some more. In the preview for episode 4, we see Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy readying the troops from King's Landing as Dany addresses what's left of their own troops at Winterfell. 


"We have won the great war, now we will win the last war," she says, smiling menacingly, like a woman who has been through hell and back and is now invincible. While it is true for every life that is left in Winterfell, Dany herself had been super absent from the battle itself. Anyway, the trailer shows her rejoicing and drinking with the leftover men of Winterfell as they cheer her on. "We'll rip her out, root and stem," Dany declares. 

As for Cersei and Euron, they look to the horizon in a sunny King's Landing, smiling like a pair of sly lizards whose devious plan totally worked - but, they clearly don't realize the magnitude of the unity between the North and its allies. These guys just cheated death like they had never seen or fought before, lost their men and their House heads and barely made it through alive. Nothing seals a relationship like a battle Cersei, you'd know if you ever were in one. 

Now what remains to be seen is if the lion eats the lion and whether Tyrion and Jamie, the two Lannisters who went to fight the war, will side with their treacherous sibling. Now, Tyrion may never ever go back to Cersei, especially after the moment he had with Sansa in the crypt but Jamie left her only because it was a matter of the dead and he went to war for the future of his child. However, his time at Winterfell has been very eventful. He's a soldier at heart, a Knight who slew the Mad King and freed his people and is a man of honor - so it will be really intense to see him figure out if he will pick his toxic relationship or himself. 


Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
