Winter is almost here. Four days away to be precise, and in anticipation of its arrival, HBO just released photos for the season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones. They don’t tell us much, but they sure do amp up the excitement.
The watchers on the Wall are sure to have a major part in this season, with the White Walkers nearly on their doorstep, and a later photo in the lineup indicates the arrival of two important characters on the Wall.
Daenerys Targaryen’s new attire is much more appropriate for the coming winter, but her graceful desert gowns will be missed.
This photo doesn’t seem to reveal anything new, unless that glass is full of something very unusual for Cersei, like water.
Daenerys returns to her birthplace, Dragonstone, which is also the name of the first episode.
Lyanna Mormont will save us all.
This photo is hard to decipher, but it’s quite possible that he’s just painting a giant war map for Cersei to stomp around and plot on.
Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne face off in what looks to be Winterfell. With an earlier promo photo showing Brienne and Tormund meeting again, chances are good that the duo will reach the ancestral castle.
It looks like Bran and Meera will make it to the Wall to chat with newly appointed Lord Commander Dolorous Edd. With everything they learned last season, from Benjen Stark to the White Walker threat, that should be an interesting conversation.
Anything gleaned from these photos is pure speculation, of course, but fans only have to wait a few more days before finding out how to connect these dots.
