The photos are all set in Winterfell, the seat of House Stark, where they are preparing for the impending battle against the Night King and his zombie army of White Walkers. As the teaser of the second episode made clear, the Army of the Dead are now almost at Winterfell’s doors.

Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsay), who took Jon Snow to task in the first episode for abandoning his throne to Daenerys, continues to look grim in the new photos. Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) and Gilly (Hannah Murray) share a moment of calm before the storm.

Jaime Lannister, who arrived at Winterfell in the season premiere, will have his moment of reckoning in episode two when he comes face-to-face with Daenerys Targaryen, whose father he killed when she was an infant, and Bran, whom he crippled by throwing him out from a high window.
