Game Of Thrones Episode 3: A Breakdown Of The Battle Of Winterfell From Its Creators (Season 8)

All the key scenes, explained.


Season 8--the final one--of HBO's beloved fantasy drama Game of Thrones continued this past Sunday in dramatic fashion. Episode 3 showcased the Battle of Winterfell, the dramatic showdown between the Night King and his army and Jon, Dany, and the forces at Winterfell.

It was indeed a dramatic episode with a lot to take in and consider. Following the episode's airing, HBO released a nice "Inside the Episode" video in which showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff--who were also responsible for this episode--break down the key scenes and moments. You can check out the video below. Of course you'll probably want to actually watch the episode first, given it deals with many of the episode's major developments.

At 82 minutes long, week's episode was the longest in the show's history. Next week's episode is 78 minutes long, while the final two after that are 80 minutes each.

HBO has already released the first teaser for Episode 4, and it hints at yet another dramatic showdown coming soon. In the meantime, you can get ready by checking out our collection of Episode 3 Easter eggs and references, as well as our newest theories about where things are going.
