Game of Thrones Season 8 is officially half way over this week. There's only three more episodes left of the entire series and fans are starting to get a bit worried, especially after insane battle from episode 3, which still has fans reeling. HBO has released a teaser for next week's episode which promises more craziness, as just about everything from this season has been so far.

Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 3 got its start nearly 2 years ago. Director Miguel Sapochnik returned from directing Season 6's Battle of the Bastards and says they spent months on the battle, working 16 to 18 hours a day, which was enough for the cast and crew to get a huge thank you letter from producers for working so hard on that one single episode. But what's next? Where does the show go from here?

The trailer for the next episode is just as vague and brief as the previous Game of Thrones teasers and it might make more than a few fans angry, even after watching 82 minutes of action in episode 3. HBO has been doing an excellent job teasing things since they showed the first bits of footage and pictures from the set earlier this year. They seem to have taken a page from Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios in terms of how well they keep all of their secrets. Things got so crazy that a piece of tape had to be place on the camera of everybody's smartphones on set.

Game of Thrones is wrapping up 8 years-worth of storytelling, veering away from George R.R. Martin's source material in a pretty major way. But fans have been invested the entire time, despite some alleged hiccups during Season 6 and 7, and everybody is waiting impatiently to see how everything is going to end. As of now, anything can and will more than likely happen after the intense battles from the last episode.

It's hard to believe there are only three more Game of Thrones episodes to go. Then that's it. All of the characters we've come to know, love, mourn, and hate - their story is about to come to a close, leaving many fans to question what HBO is going to do after having arguably the biggest series in TV history on the network for so long. Hopefully, the prequel series, which is currently in the early stages of development will satisfy fans and get them hyped for more adventures within the world of Westeros without all of the characters they know now. It's a gamble, but all good things must come to an end. You can check out the trailer for next week's episode below, thanks to HBO.
