Now that "Game of Thrones'" Season 7 Episode 6 ("Beyond the Wall") has been dished out, fans are now looking forward to the show's season finale that is expected to be epic. If the recently released trailer for Episode 7 is anything to go by, it may well seem that there is another battle on the way and it promises to be a massive skirmish.

Another battle looms

According to the new teaser, it showcased the Unsullied commander - Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) leading the troops as they prepare for battle.

Meanwhile, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) look over the horizon as Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) ship finally docked at King's Landing.

Later scenes also featured a shot of the Dragon Pit where Jon and the rest of his party enter the arena as they introduce their Wight prisoner to Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). The sizzler reel closed with Jon saying, "There's only one war that matters and it is here."

Hackers are at it again

The "GoT" season finale is slated to air on the 27th, though recent reports suggest that hackers have surfaced yet again as they threatened to shell out the episode ahead of its scheduled release.

The hacker – who goes by the moniker Mr. Smith – gave HBO a heads-up about the leak adding that he/she will also release the login details of the network's social media accounts.

HBO, on the other hand, is unfazed by the threat as they have mentioned in their official statement that they are not having talks with the hacker. They added that these entities keep on stealing information just to get some attention from the media and went on saying that it is a game that they are not participating in.

Season 8's production

Meanwhile, fans are now musing as to when "Game of Thrones'" final season will premiere. If Coster-Waldau's recent interview is anything to go by, where he stated that he is scheduled to report on set sometime in October, it won't be too far away. Another actor – Liam Cunningham - revealed previously that he is expecting to be tapped in September.

If "GoT's" Season 8 follows a six-month production period just like the current season and if Coster-Waldau's statement fits in the bag, it is expected that filming of the show's final season will be done by April next year.

After its post-production, which will also be a lengthy one, it is believed that the series' farewell season might premiere in September 2018. Check out a video about the show here:
