Game of Thrones Released Battle of Winterfell Photos & It Looks Bleak AF

We know he was created by the Children of the Forest and has a particular fondness for circular patterns, but what are his real plans and motives?

The episode has a runtime of 82 minutes, making it the longest episode in "Game of Thrones" history.

Of course, the big question going into this Sunday's episode is how will the Northern Lords of Winterfell defend their Stark Stronghold from the risky threat that the Night King poses?

One theory says that Bran knows that he is destined to become the Night King and is trying to stop that from happening. If Night King chooses to fight at the Winterfell, then he will have to face Drogon and Rhaegal. Our heroes didn't seem to take the reality of an undead dragon as being one they specifically needed to deal with going into this battle, which feels like a mistake, so some of that fear could be in regards to that. Home to hundreds of thousands, King's Landing serves as the Night King's flawless breeding ground for more undead wights. Fans have been speculating that the Starks will lose the Battle of Winterfell but instead, they will win it only to find that Night King is not there as he chose to invade the King's Landing.

How is this possible? Another key piece of imagery is the shadow of a dragon flying over King's Landing, which with this theory suggests it's the Night King and Viserion.

Daenerys Targaryen: The series is called "A Song of Ice and Fire" - Jon is ice and Daenerys is fire, so they're not dying before the story's resolution. In season 2, Daenerys also had a vision where the throne room was destroyed and covered in snow.

In the previous theory, Bran's transformation into the Night King was set to happen at some point in the future. Maybe this is a way to show the presence of Night King.

Daenerys Targaryen can be seen watching Winterfell from a high vantage point.

Game of Thrones continues Sunday on HBO in the US and the following day on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
