9 Photos from 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Episode 5, SECOND TO LAST EPISODE EVER

We need a minute to fully come to terms with that phase in the headline about these 9 images from Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5- "SECOND TO LAST EPISODE EVER".

Because, really, that's what episode 5 is, the second to last we'll ever get of the HBO series.

These 9 images were released by the HBO PR department (thanks guys and gals, you rock!) and feature more fabulous character portraits by Helen Sloan, our photog crush.

The preview for the coming second to last episode has no dialog, but is chalked full of meaning:

We're ready, but we're not ready.

Game of Thrones airs for just two more Sundays on HBO.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
