Eastwatch Photos: A look at Game of Thrones Episode 7.05
HBO has debuted eight Eastwatch photos, giving us a look at the fifth episode of Game of Thrones Season 7. Premiering on Sunday, August 13 and directed by Matt Shakman, Eastwatch is described as follows:
“Daenerys demands loyalty from the surviving Lannister soldiers; Jon heeds Bran’s warning about White Walkers on the move; Cersei vows to vanquish anyone or anything that stands in her way.”
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
The show is based on the novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Last season, however, the TV series moved past the point where the books have stalled.
