Whether you are a fan of Game of Thrones or not, it's difficult to avoid the shock and sheer horror felt by those that watched this week's show. Bad things happened, and all we want to do is move on to the next episode and pretend they didn't.

However, by the looks of the teaser below, it seems things aren't picking up much for Sansa. However, we do take comfort in her telling Reek that 'her family still has friends in the North'. Yes they do, Sansa! Free yourself from those sadistic Boltons already. Could herself and Reek possibly form an alliance to escape? Here's hoping.

Elsewhere, it looks like we are back at The Wall again next week, where Jon Snow is setting off to talk to the Free Folk, while Stannis and the gang are still en-route to Winterfell. Could they not hurry it up a bit? Someone needs to wipe that smirk of Roose Bolton's face already (although he is played very well by Irish actor Michael McElhatton, anyone remember him from Intermission?!)

Watch the short teaser for next week below, let's hope for happier times, or just you know, not so dark would be grand too.

You can watch Game of Thrones on Monday on Sky Atlantic at 9pm.
