The last episode of the hit HBO fantasy drama was huge. Game of Thrones delivered the epic Battle of Winterfell in season 8 episode 3, The Long Night . In an instalment that saw a huge number of epic and heartbreaking casualties, events culminated in a heart-stopping climax that saw one war end and another left to begin.
But as we know, that was only the half-way point of the season as three feature-length episodes remain to bring the War for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms to its dramatic conclusion. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen remain uncertain allies in the fight against the scheming Cersei Lannister. Who will be victorious and rule the Seven Kingdoms?
And who will remain to tell the tale?
Spoiler warning for what comes next if you haven't seen the most recent episode.

Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 plot
All the plot we have at the moment is from the preview, which sees a mixture of celebration but also turning ahead to the final war against Cersei Lannister. Her betrayal of the Targaryen-Stark alliance and leaving them to die at the hands of the Night King will not have endeared Daenerys to her and in the trailer, she promises to bring the arch-villainess down.
But where does rightful heir Jon Snow stand in all of this?
