It will be the first time that Jon has ever come face to face with her dragons, having only previously seen one flying above him when he landed at Dragonstone, and it could be the start of the discovery. For an episode named after the Night's Watch castle now being manned by Tormund and the wildlings, there's nary a glimpse of it to be found.
I'm particularly anxious about Cersei's morose pose, sitting alone in the bed so recently shared openly with her brother for the first time. But flame-broiling a significant chunk of the Lannister army is not without consequences, as these photos released by HBO from the upcoming "Eastwatch" episode attest.
Following the climactic Lannister-Targaryen battle of "The Spoils of War", the fifth episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season looks to determine whether Daenerys will actually benefit from those spoils. These show Dany and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) discussing something, presumably the threat coming from beyond the Wall?
It seems that they should get ready for the worst.
Another of the photos features Daenerys and Tyrion Lannister together, along with some Dothraki, on what appears to be Dragonstone too.More news: 'Thrones' Foreshadows Romance Between Jon Snow & the Dragon Queen

The strategizing continues, as Tyrion and Lord Varys confer in Daenerys' temporary throne room. The Queen of the Kingdom of the Seven Crowns has not said her last word and it is doubtful that she will learn in episode 5 the defeat of her brother.
And finally, we see Samwell Tarly and his partner, Gilly, studying books at Oldtown.
And while we don't think this will happen in the last nine episodes of Game of Thrones, we're going to put in a cautionary spoiler/speculation warning. We'll find out Sunday night.
Based on what we know about Jon's general outlook on life his glum facade could mean impending death, certain destruction, or he's hungry.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays on HBO.
