"Game of Thones" episode 8 is coming -- but probably not quickly enough for the fanatical followers of the series. So HBO is sating fans' bloodlust with an enticing look at the upcoming episode, titled "The Prince of Winterfell."
And because it's Friday and everyone deserves a special treat for getting through yet another week, they've tossed in a glimpse of episode 9 as well.
The photo from episode 8 finds Tyrion Lannister hanging out with resident eunuch Varys while doing a little light reading -- namely, he's perusing "An History of the Great Sieges of Westeros."
The second photo, from the upcoming episode "Blackwater" (airing May 27), features Bronn preparing to let loose with a flaming arrow.
Take a shot yourself and tell us: What do these shots reveal about the upcoming episodes?
