2 dramatic new promos tease Game of Thrones' upcoming epic battle

The moment every Game of Thrones fan has been waiting for this season is almost upon us: this Sunday, the Battle of Blackwater will rock King's Landing to its core and change the lives of many of our beloved characters forever. In order to further whet our appetites for what will be an epic event in the making, HBO has released two new previews to let us know that War. Is. Here.

The two glorious new promo videos feature a few snippets of new footage, so keep your eyes peeled. Written by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire himself, George R.R. Martin, the penultimate episode of the season, simply called "Blackwater," promises to be shock full of jaw-dropping battle scenes as well as intense drama.

This is really it guys, this is the battle we've all been waiting for!

Have a look at the two new previews:

What do you think? Are you excited for "Blackwater"? Who do you think will live and who do you think will die? Will Stannis (Stephen Dillane) finally win King's Landing or will Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) prevail? Will King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) finally get his comeuppance?
