Here's the trailer for episode four, series seven of 'Game of Thrones'.

As you can see, we're getting a step closer to all-out war. "My only venture at this moment is reestablishing control over this continent and every person on it," says Cersei Lannister.

Daenerys Targaryen, meanwhile, is having a tough time of it. "All my allies are gone," she says. "I'm losing."

The next episode is called 'The Spoils of War', and will air on Monday morning at 2am on Sky Atlantic. It will see Daenerys being keener to negotiate with Jon Snow, as she leans towards favouring a full-scale attack instead of controlled strikes.

We also see Arya Stark finally arrive at Winterfell, and Cersei strike a deal with the Iron Bank.

Series seven is the penultimate season in the epic fantasy saga. Series eight won't air until next year, and will only be six episodes long, as opposed to this series' seven and previous seasons' 10.

However, what it lacks in the number of episodes it could make up for in terms of episode length.

An HBO exec recently hinted we could see much longer episodes in the final series. In fact, they could be feature film length.

"We haven't had that discussion yet, because I don't know how long the episodes are going to be," Casey Bloys, HBO programming president, told reporters recently. "Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it's a great show, so who knows?"

The series seven finale will be the longest episode to date, clocking in at 81 minutes.

Bloys also confirmed the scripts for series eight are already written, and that we won't see the 'Game of Thrones' spinoff shows until at least a year after series eight has finished, which means 2019 at the earliest.
