The trailer of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 5 has not given away too much about what the upcoming episode is about, but there are clues. Firstly, why is Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) skulking around in the dark? What is he trying to find, especially in King's Landing and will it help Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) win the war? Also, does what he is finding have something to do with why Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) looks surprised at the end of the trailer?
Spoilers for 'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 5 below...
We saw in the fourth episode of the show that Euron shot down one of Dany's dragons' Rhaegal who falls into the sea. It was one of the most shocking moments of the episode and left us wondering where Dany stands now with the loss of her men, her confidante Missandei and another of her sons. So, why would Euron look surprised when he looked at the sky? He knows Dany still has Drogon, so he must have seen something unexpected. Was that the fourth dragon that everyone's been talking about?
From the looks of it, Tyrion seems to be back at Dragonstone because not only is he skulking in the dark, we can also see the beach in the background. That combined with the dragon drawings on the wall has us wondering if he is out to find a way that would help turn the tide to Dany's side - possibly the birth of a dragon or maybe Rhaegal survived? We would have to see what Tyrion has up his sleeves. He could also have reached Dragonstone after the war because we can see him standing right next to Jon Snow (Kit Harington) facing the gates of King's Landing. So yes, the trailer also showed that Jon has arrived at King's Landing.
We also see the Lannister Army face the unsullied led by Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson), who now has a personal reason to fight in this war. His beloved Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) was taken from him, and now he has to exact revenge. Cersei (Lena Headey) stands overlooking the window of her palace as her army gets ready to fight the war for her. As she stands, we are reminded of Tyrion's words - Cersei loved her children even more than herself and Jaime. So would she really risk endangering the life of her unborn baby or was it all a lie to manipulate her brothers Tyrion and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)? It didn't take her too long to tell Euron that she was carrying his baby, something that she did with Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) as well.
