GoT showdown we’ve been waiting for

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR GAME OF THRONES

Forget the Night King, this is the showdown diehard Game of Thrones fans have been waiting for.

With the Battle of Winterfell now done and dusted and the Night King slain by Arya Stark, it's time for Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen to turn their attention towards the enemy in the south - Cersei Lannister.

Holed up in King's Landing and abandoned by even her brother/one-time lover Jaime Lannister, Cersei has nothing to lose and is even more dangerous than last season.

She's made an alliance with Euron Greyjoy who has provided her with ships and men while being intent on ruling Westeros alongside her as king.

But of course Dany isn't going to let that happen without a fight, with the trailer for next week's episode showing her vowing to defeat Cersei.

Despite receiving an icy reception from Winterfell when she arrived Dany now appears to have won them well and truly over, delivering a rousing speech to the cheers of its battle-

weary residents.

"We have won the great war, now we will win the last war," Dany says.

Meanwhile back at King's Landing Cersei can be seen surveying her kingdom with Euron at her side, with him appearing to get down on one knee in another scene.

In other important news, we also get a glimpse of Arya Stark locking lips with a mystery person - please let it be Gendry!
