Man, Winterfell is looking pretty spiff these days—almost like that war with the undead never happened!

Game of Thrones has a hard act to follow after “The Long Night,” a horrific thrill ride that ended in tragedy and triumph, after the Night King was defeated at the hands of Arya Stark, our perpetual lady of badassery. Now, it’s time to mourn the dead, make sure Samwell Tarly is alive (he is), and take the fight to King’s Landing. Here are the photos from HBO (via Entertainment Weekly):

Now that one of the show’s biggest threats is seemingly out of the picture after the White Walkers were defeated, it’s time for Daenerys Targaryen to set her sights on the Iron Throne at last. But Queen Cersei Lannister has no intention of giving up, and has 20,000 mercenaries ready to toe the line. We’ll have to see where things go in this latest 80-minute adventure, the last Game of Thrones episode directed by David Nutter—who directed, among many episodes, “The Rains of Castamere.

Game of Thrones returns with episode four on Sunday.
