Game of Thrones season eight, episode two is the next instalment hitting HBO and Sky Atlantic screen when it’s released on Sunday, April 14 in the USA. The season eight premiere was given the title Winterfell, which has left GOT fans around the globe wondering what the episode name for episode two will be. HBO didn’t release the episode title for the season eight premiere until it began and it looks like the US network will do the same again for episode two.
What is Game of Thrones season 8, episode 2 called?
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season 8.
Game of Thrones season eight, episode two is yet to have its official episode title released.
HBO, for now, simply list the next episode as Game of Thrones 69 in its TV schedule.
Winterfell, the name for the first episode in season eight, wasn’t published until the premiere got underway on HBO.
The rest of season eight is also listed under their numerical title as opposed to an actual name.
This means, for now, the final season will end with Game of Thrones 73 on Sunday, May 19.
Daenerys tells him: “When I was a child, my brother would tell me a bedtime story about the man who killed our father.”
The Mother of Dragons continues: “About all the things we would do that man.”
Before the audience can see what happens to Jaime, the promo cuts to yet another tense stand-off between Daenerys and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).
Daenerys tells Sansa she “never should’ve trusted Cersei (Lena Headey)”, to which Sansa quips: “You never should’ve either.”
Amid the action, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) asks Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju): “How long do we have?”
Tormund frankly responds: “Before the sun comes up tomorrow.”
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is the last character shown in the promo as he worriedly looks over Winterfell.
Add to the mix a passionate kiss between Greyworm (Jacob Anderson) and Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) showing off her bow and arrow skills and episode two is bound to be gripping.
Ahead of Game of Thrones 69’s air date, HBO released a number of first look images from the episode.
