As predicted, there were several significant deaths in the Battle of Winterfell. But there is still plenty to fight for after the Great War against the army of the dead, which was also inevitable given there are three more episodes to go.

The trailer for episode 4 has Game of Thrones fans super hyped for the battle for the iron throne that lies ahead, but one of the most notable aspects of the preview is the revelation that three key characters survived the Battle of Winterfell, which was left ambiguous in episode 3.

I say characters, they’re technically animals but still hold a place in viewers’ hearts. Ghost, the direwolf, and both dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal, feature in the preview, despite being involved in the thick of the battle against the wight walkers.

This news came much to the relief of Thrones fans who feared the worst.
