As we all know, Game of Thrones likes to go big in the penultimate episode of each season. Judging by the trailer for “Beyond the Wall,” this season is no different. And the message has been telegraphed loud and clear: Winter is here.

We closed last week’s episode with Jon Snow leading a motley crew of characters from all over the Game of Thrones world beyond the wall in search of a wight. The master plan is to capture one of the dead and transport it to King’s Landing, in effort to convince Cersei of the threat to the north. In “Beyond the Wall,” the journey actually begins, and consequently, we’re in for a tense episode. In this kind of difficult expedition, the threat of danger exists around every corner. And the goal of capturing a wight will certainly guarantee a confrontation between Jon’s men and the White Walkers. Blood will fall. But what we don’t know is who will make it out alive.

In an episode so centered around the arrival of winter, we’re don’t think that we’ll spend too much time to the south, but we’ll definitely catch up with Sansa and Arya. The two were having a difficult time reconnecting after their time apart, and Littlefinger preyed on Arya’s suspicious nature to further drive the sisters apart. We’ll have to wait and see how deep the repercussions go in this week’s episode.
