"Bad things are coming".

Ser Davos has shown himself to be man who has just the right words for the right occasions.

As evidence, we present the moment of Game of Thrones season 7 episode 4 — The Spoils of War — when he asks Jon his thoughts about Dany. "She has a good heart," Jon says, to which Ser Davos quips, "Oh yes, I saw you staring at her good heart."

Yes, quite.

So, when Ser Davos says, "Bad things are coming" we know very, very bad things are coming.

He says these words at the end of HBO's just-released trailer for Game of Thrones season 7 episode 5, just when Jon announces that Bran has had a vision in which he's seen the Night King and his army of White Walkers march towards Eastwatch.

But it isn't just these otherworldly battles that occupy centrestage in the episode 5 trailer.

There's Dany, laying down terms for a bunch of weary lords and soldiers: "Bend the knee...or refuse, and die". (She's quite set on knee-bending, the Dragon Queen.)

Resolutely not bending his knee is Jon Snow, who after a romantic cave adventure with Dany in the previous episode, is faced with the full force of Drogon's wrath. From what we saw of him last, he's still standing.

Much-concerned about Dany are Varys and Tyrion. In fact, the Spider tells Tyrion: "you must get her to listen". (We are of course presuming the 'her' they refer to is Dany — it could be Missandei, pining away for stuck-at-Casterly-Rock Grey Worm, or Cersei. Unlikely, but it could be.

And then of course, there's Cersei, promising Maester Qyburn (no doubt chuffed at the success of his antiaircraft gun dragon-fighting crossbow) that she'll defeat "whoever stands in our way".

All in all, a pretty action-packed episode 5 seems to be in the offing. Will Monday never come?
