HBO has released eight new stills from the upcoming Game of Thrones season 7 episode 5, titled 'Eastwatch'. The previous episode — Spoils of War — saw Daenerys achieve her first victory against the Lannisters, although Drogon sustained a spear wound. Here. Dany and Jon seem to be conferring over that other battle she's promised to help him with — the one against the Night King and his army of White Walkers. Image via HBO

There's Jon, looking none too happy. Has he received Bran's message about seeing White Walkers heading to Eastwatch? And will Tormund be able to hold off the horde until Jon gets there? Image via HBO

Meanwhile, Tyrion is walking through the ashes of the Tumbleton battlefield, where the Loot Train Attack took place in episode 4. Is he searching for Jaime? Image via HBO

4/8

This still is presumably from the scene we saw in the Game of Thrones season 7 episode 5 previw — where Dany asks all the soldiers still standing at the end of the Tumbleton battle to 'bend the knee' or suffer the consequences. Image via HBO

5/8

Back at Dragonstone, Varys is deep in thought. Will he betray Dany — as fan theories posit? Image via HBO

6/8

He also has this impromptu conference with Tyrion. Does the setting remind anyone else of his conversation with Varys in the Red Keep's throne room that led to the famous line — 'Chaos is a ladder' — being uttered? Image via HBO

With the threat at Eastwatch, Sam is probably putting in overtime with the Citadel's old books, hoping his research will throw up some more helpful hints on how the Night King can be defeated. Image via HBO

8/8

We know who isn't thinking of the Night King, or the White Walkers, or anything to do with the long Night or the Wall. Cersei. She does seem in thought, but we presume it could be over thoughts of Jaime, whose fate she may not know yet. Image via HBO
