What to expect from the Game of Thrones finale

Now that we have breathing room from last night's epic episode, HBO has teased what's in store for the finale of Game of Throne's sixth season.

The 45-second clip reveals story lines that may finally be tied up, including High Sparrow's reign coming to an end, as well as the fallout after Jon Snow and Sansa Stark too back Winterfell.

"Are you prepared to stand trial and profess your guilt or innocence before the seven?" we hear High Sparrow say over shots of Cersei Lannister, Queen Margaery and King Tommen.

Will Cersei finally get her revenge on High Sparrow and his faith militant after last season's walk of shame? Will The Mountain get to crush some skulls? Or does the High Sparrow have some more tricks up his shabby sleeves?

Meanwhile, things aren't looking so good for Sansa.

She called on Littlefinger - the man who put her in the hands of Ramsay Bolton in the first place - for the Knights of the Vale to come save them from Bolton's men in the Battle of the Bastards.

In the preview for the final episode Littlefinger has Sansa cornered.

"What do you want?" Sansa asks him.

"I thought you knew what I wanted," Littlefinger replies ominously.

Oh dear. Hopefully, Sansa can get out of this one.

The preview ends with Tyrion telling Daenerys , "Are you afraid? Good. You're in the great game now and the great game's terrifying."

With all her ships now in a line, will we see Dany, her army and her dragons set sail for Westeros?

On top of all this, Winter (and The Winter King) is coming and the season may end on a cliffhanger that none of us expect. All will be revealed next week.
