The back half of HBO’s final season of “Game of Thrones” kicks off this coming Sunday with episode four, the title of which still hasn’t been revealed. But eight new photos show the aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell, and Team Daenerys figuring out how to take down Cersei Lannister in King’s Landing.

Keep reading for a look at what’s in store.

The first image is one we saw on the teaser video for episode four, and it contains a number of important survivors.

Folks are walking towards piles of corpses with torches in hand, ready to ceremonially burn the dead.

In the photo we can see Ghost, Jon Snow’s direwolf, and many other survivors. You can read our full list of them here.

Grey Worm, Varys, Missandei, and Tyrion are all at Daenerys Targaryen’s side.

Her beloved advisor and protector, Ser Jorah Mormont, was one of the few major characters killed during the battle.

Sansa, Arya, and Bran Stark are all together, standing apart from Team Targaryen.

Arya killed the Night King, ending the Great War against the White Walkers. Right before the battle started, Sansa had a slightly tense conversation with Daenerys about what would happen to the North once she won the Iron Throne.

Will those tensions resurface now the battle is over?

Jon Snow looks somber as he goes to burn the dead.

Jon lost his dear friend Edd Tollett in the fight, and came very close to dying when he squared off with the undead Viserion just before Arya stabbed the Night King.

But before all that, he learned his real name and Targaryen heritage and told Daenerys he was her brother’s son. What will he and Daenerys do next when it comes to the line of succession?

Neither Missandei, Daenerys, or Varys are looking particularly happy about what someone off-camera is saying.

Daenerys does seem pleased by whatever is happening here.

Our bet is they’re heading south towards King’s Landing. But we’re curious about how many troops Daenerys has left. The battle appeared to wipe out virtually all of the Dothraki and Unsullied.

Meanwhile Cersei is looking smug. Her plan worked, after all.

Cersei didn’t join in the fight against the Night King, which means all of her troops and the Golden Company mercenaries she hired are still in their prime and ready for an oncoming battle.
