Two episodes in the final season of Game of Thrones, we've only had one death – not one particularly emotional, at that. The next episode, then, has to be a bloodbath. The third episode of the eighth season is about the battle between the living and the dead at Winterfell, so it was obvious that there would be some deaths, but it is also being directed by Miguel Sapochnik, whose other credits include the Battle. of the bastards and end of season 6 The Winds of Winter, which saw Arya massacre Walder Frey and Cersei blowing up the Great Sept with fire. When Sapochnik drives, people die.
The only bit of hope we have is that there will be three more episodes …
