Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 is all set to be the next episode in the final season of the show which will air on Sunday, the 12th of April. It is all set to provide a closure to many storylines and is going to be the penultimate episode in the series leading up to the finale.

Let us take a closer look at GoT’s 5th episode of the final season and consider how it is going to be like:
Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 Review: What to Expect?
This episode of Game of Thrones is all set to feature the wrath of Daenerys. After The Mountain chopped off Missandei’s head in the previous episode, we saw that all the members of Daenerys’s army were visibly upset. Since then, we know that the dragon queen is going to do something to teach the southerners a lesson.
Furthermore, we also know that Jaime wants to save Cersei – it will be interesting to see if he joins her in the army or manages to have her surrendered. Daenerys is also upset at Euron Greyjoy and the golden company because they killed one of her dragons. Left with only one dragon now, it will be interesting to see what Dany’s next move here is.
