The Hollywood Reporter released a first look teaser for Game of Thrones’ upcoming episode titled “The Watchers on the Wall,” and by the content of the teaser fans are in for the most epic battle since the series second season.
“The Watchers on the Wall” will be set at The Wall, and looking at the teaser, Jon (Kit Harington), Sam (John Bradley) and the others are up against tough odds. As the Wildlng army quickly nears the Castle Black, it is clear this battle will be one for the ages. Guaranteeing the battle will be one the series’ biggest battles to date, director Neil Marshall is back for the first time since season two’s Battle of the Blackwater.
With any good battle centered episode, a good battle speech is just what the fighting troops need to hear before heading to the battlefield. As the tearer previews, we’re guaranteed at least one memorable battle speech. Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale) as he rallies the Night Watch:
“Tonight we fight, and when the sun rises, I promise you, Castle Black will stand.”
Also potentially on hand for the battle, giants or mammoths. Around the 0:11 second mark in the trailer there is a brief glimpse of what could be either giants or mammoths aiding the Wildlings in battle.
