EW’s Game of Thrones Weekly podcast is back with a discussion of the long-awaited season 8 trailer — what, exactly, is going on with Cersei? is Jon going to ride that dragon or what? — plus we detail our set visit during the filming of the Battle of Winterfell, with new never-before-revealed spoiler-free details about what it was really like behind the scenes of the final season.

Watch the podcast session above, or download the audio on iTunes or other podcast apps, or listen to it below:

Also: Read EW’s new cover story going behind the scenes of season 8 in Belfast while the action was being shot amid some tough conditions that put all the stars of the show to the ultimate test. (“You’re broken as a human,” as Maisie Williams put it.) The story is also spoiler-free.

Check out our cast portraits gallery, which has some gorgeous photos and all sorts of storyline teases from the cast (such as this from Kit Harington about the looming news of Jon Snow’s parentage: “The end of the world might be coming soon, but at least he’s in love with somebody and knows who he is — and then comes a sledgehammer”).
