Episode 4 - build up of army burning the dead, reflection on the great war, repairing and rebuilding the North-Dany alliance. Dragons injured etc.

Perhaps some unification with the Yara led Iron Islands.

Some showings in King's Landing. Cersei looking like she is in control, Euron plotting. Some contraption from Qyburn as an equaliser.

Episode 5 - Battle episode. King Landing falls at great cost. Cleganebowl. Sandor kills Gregor. Arya kills Sandor (mercy killing). Some massive twist at the end.

Episode 6 - Resolution of twist and a last confrontation of sorts between whoever is left standing.

My prediction:

Yara and her fraction of the Ironborn come to the rescue. Maybe Edmure and the Tully army do the same at Sansa's behest. Yara or Jaime kills Euron. Grey Worm kills Harry Strickland (who disappointingly has done nothing so far). Sandor and Arya kill Gregor. Jaime or Tyrion kills Cersei.

Dany realizes that Westeros actually isn't her home and perhaps the expectations that brought her here were imposed on her by her brother. There's some poetic irony that Essos was her real home, that she had conquered it, was widely revered there by all the people she had freed, but then left it for a place that doesn't want her. Everything Viserys made her do and everything she's done since, her entire adult life, has been devoted to taking the Iron Throne and now she discovers that might all be taken away from her as a fluke of fate and by her lover nonetheless. The story has introduced this idea so that she has to weigh how much she wants the throne against what she’s willing to do to get it – kill Cersei, raze King’s Landing, possibly even kill Jon or be relieved should Jon fall in battle. It’s encapsulated in Sam’s line to Jon as to whether she would give up the throne for the people. I think Dany will ultimately make the right decision and give up the throne, leaving it to Jon. The twist will be that Jon doesn’t want it but as the true king will give it up to someone else. Neither Dany nor Jon would end up ruling. Who would? Jon might well choose Tyrion. Tyrion has spent the last few seasons looking for a better ruler for the Seven Kingdoms only to discover it’s him.
