Last night's 'Game of Thrones' episode was all about the build-up to the big battle.

Its events took place over the day and eve before the White Walkers arrive at Winterfell. For some characters, it was a time for drinking and singing. Still others were knighted (Brienne of Tarth, yay!) while others got the ride (fair play Arya).

In HBO's latest 'Inside the episode', the series looks at the major happenings of season 8 episode 2. These include Jaime standing on trial before Daenerys and Brienne coming to grips with her feelings for him.

D.B. Weiss and David Benioff also offer their thoughts on the significance of Theon Greyjoy's return, and that conversation between Dany and Sansa, as well as Tyrion's changing status in the former's eyes. Generally speaking, they look at the characters, relationships and politics of the show as it currently stands.

Thus it's a handy analysis of last night's Game of Thrones episode.
