    What Will Happen Next On "Game Of Thrones"? Here's What The Trailer Reveals

    I am so ready for the second half of the season. Contains spoilers for Season 8, Episode 3 obviously.

    The Battle of Winterfell is OVER. The Night King is dead. So now what? Well, if the trailer for next week's Game of Thrones is anything to go by: CERSEI LANNISTER.

    The trailer opens with Cersei smugly surveying what is presumably the Golden Company.

    HBO

    She's changed out of her black mourning garb and is back in Lannister red. She seems to be feeling happier and more confident than before.

    HBO

    At Winterfell, Sansa surveys the rebuilding progress and watches the Unsullied filing out.

    HBO

    Ugh, are we gonna have to endure more Sansa versus Dany tension?

    The survivors of the battle (Sansa, Arya, Gendry, and what looks like Sam in this shot) watch something — probably all the bodies being burned.

    HBO

    Jon watches too, with a patented Sad Boi expression.

    HBO

    Meanwhile, Dany gets everyone ready to fight Cersei, saying, "We have won the Great War. Now we will win the last war."

    HBO

    She raises a glass to toast...

    HBO

    And for the first time since she arrived in Westeros, people are actually happy to be in the same room as her.

    HBO

    Also peep Tormund's red head in this crowd! He survived!

    Meanwhile, Dany looks ready to go on another dragon ride.

    HBO

    There's a shot of everyone lighting up the bodies of the dead.

    HBO

    And GHOST IS THERE!!! HE MADE IT OUT ALIVE SOMEHOW!

    We see Dany in Targaryen red looking worried.

    HBO

    I guess the whole Jon is secretly a Targaryen thing is gonna rear its ugly head again.

    Euron seems ready to marry Cersei again.

    HBO

    And she isn't unhappy about it.

    Sansa watches as both dragons (THEY ALSO MADE IT OMG!!!) fly off.

    HBO

    Presumably it's Jon and Dany going for another joyride, because Sansa looks very unhappy.

    HBO

    We later see Jon riding out of Winterfell with Ser Davos. It seems likely Jon's honoring his pledge to fight for Dany now the Great War is over.

    HBO

    Gilly is also in the background, so that's confirmation she survived the crypts.

    The Targaryen fleet is headed to what is surely King's Landing.

    HBO

    There's a shot of Dany and Drogon looking up at something – I'm guessing Jon on Rhaegal again.

    HBO

    The Targaryens are on the rise! Maybe they'll resolve the Aegon conflict pretty quickly?

    And the last shot of the trailer is Cersei watching something — maybe Dany's fleet arriving?

    HBO

    It seems like the rest of Season 8 really will be about who sits on the Iron Throne. The White Walkers were the big fake-out, rather than the other way around. What a twist.
