Sometimes in sports, a team will come out on top in a very important game.
They'll defeat their major rival in exciting fashion and be riding especially high afterwards, thinking nothing can ever bring them down.
But this excitement causes them to overlook the following opponent and they end up playing what is typically referred to as a "letdown" game.
And they end up losing such a game.
We bring all of this up to say the following to Dany, Jon Snow and especially Arya Stark:
Celebrate your victory over the Night Kind and his undead forces. But not too hard and not for too long.
Because there's a certain evil queen and her army just waiting to strike their vulnerable foe in the next inevitable battle.
Following the epic events in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, it's hard to imagine where this series will go next.
But one need not try to imagine because a brand new installment airs in just a few days -- and we've got your very first look at it here.
In the tease featured here, Daenerys promises that the “last war” is coming to Westeros, clearly preparing her decimated army to march against Cersei in the capital city.
However, Sansa is not comfortable with her family’s alliance with Dany and isn't shy about expressing such grievances.
Meanwhile, in King’s Landing, Cersei appears to be preparing to fight while fending off advances from the odious Euron Greyjoy, whose army she needs to win any future battle -- but whose company she may be growing tired of.
Will all of this feel rather anticlimactic after our heroes and heroines took down the Night King? Perhaps.
But many viewers out there think the political power struggle is where the bulk of the intrigue lies on this drama.
Are you among them?
There's also the issue of Bronn having been enlisted to kill Tyrion and Jaime, as well as Jaime coming across the sister he has now betrayed.
He has to be the one to eventually kill Cersei, right? He simply has to be.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, however, let's just take a look ahead to this Sunday and Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4.
