New ‘Game of Thrones’ images are all about Daenerys Targaryen

TwitterFacebook

Daenerys Targaryen is ready for Winterfell, alright. 

In a new batch of Game of Thrones Season 8 images released by Sky Atlantic, the UK’s show distributor, the Mother of Dragons is adjusting well at the Stark ancestral home.
