King’s Landing succumbed to Daenerys Targaryen on the second to last episode of Game of Thrones.
Following the destruction, the trailer for the HBO hit series’s final hour hit screens and revealed the ash covered world that remained.
The Mother of Dragons stood tall over her army as she looked down upon her conquest, while other characters tried to come to terms with the destruction. Fires still burned at the base of the collapsed structures as shots unveiled the King’s Landing’s destruction.
Tyrion Lannister is the first character to become fully visible as he steps across the ashes and stares up towards The Red Keep. Arya Stark is the next to step forward, as she stares over the massive army, now awaiting Daenerys’s arrival. The Dothraki are seen cheering while on horseback as they raise their hooked swords in the air. At the end of the trailer, Danerys comes out and stands over her massive armies.
Finally the show title is placed across and viewers are left to wonder what might happen in the final hour.
During the second-to-last episode of Game of Thrones, The Last War began as Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) brought her depleted forces to King’s Landing to square off against Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). The Queen of Dragons was down to just one surviving dragon as the battle begins.
That proved to be more than enough, however, as she lit the city on fire, killing soldiers and civilians without caring much.
