Game Of Thrones gave us a massive battle in the 4th episode, The Spoils of War and the fans just can’t seem to stop raving about it and the trailer for the next episode also promises some important moments, especially the ones involving the White Walkers and Jon Snow meeting Drogon. However, it was a bit strange to see that the title for the 5th episode wasn’t released even after the latest episode got over. Usually, HBO releases the titles of the episodes at least 1-2 weeks in advance and the secrecy regarding the title made the fans wonder what could happen in the episode.
HBO has finally revealed the title of the episode and it’s the place where we will get to see a lot of action involving the White Walkers. The 5th episode of season 7 has been titled “Eastwatch” after the Night’s Watch castle, Eastwatch-by-the-sea and the show has been giving us hints since the start of this season that this castle will be playing a central role this season. During the season 7 premiere, Jon Snow asked Tormund to take the Wildlings with him and bolster the defences at Eastwatch and in the same episode, we saw the Hound seeing a vision in which the White Walkers were marching towards Eastwatch.
Even the opening credits for this season have been referring to this castle and I am sure that the show is now going to shift it’s focus from the war between Daenerys and Cersei to the threat posed by the White Walkers.
We can see Jon Snow telling Daenerys about the White Walkers marching towards Eastwatch in the trailer for the next episode and if you remember the 2nd trailer for season 7, we saw Jon Snow fighting against a White Walker. That will definitely be the penultimate episode of the season, which always has the best battles and looking at the battle in the latest episode, I just can’t imagine what is going to happen in the 6th episode of the season.
