'Game of Thrones' reveals big battle trailer for season 8, episode 3 Above is HBO’s trailer for Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3, where the Night King and the Army of the Dead attack the Stark stronghold. The episode is the first of two this year directed by Emmy winner Miguel Sapochnik, who famously helmed “The Battle of the Bastards” and “Hardhome.” The episode is also the first super-sized entry of the season as the last four episodes are all nearly 80 minutes long.

The placement of the big battle in episode 3 will no doubt surprise some fans who were expecting it to come later as it’s been long teased as the show’s climax. But none of the previous trailers or photos have shown even a glimpse of the mysterious second half of the final season. In a recent cover story, EW went behind the scenes of the battle episode and detailed the cast and crew’s Herculean efforts to pull it off.
