32 Important Things To Note From The New "Game Of Thrones" Preview
This post is dark and full of spoilers.
Before we get crazy here, let me just warn you that this post 100% contains spoilers for the next couple of episodes of Game of Thrones. So, if you want to go into it as knowledgeless as Jon Snow...
Comic-Con is currently in full swing, which is good news for Thrones fans because HBO just released a brand new preview for Season 7 there. And you can watch it here:
So, let's break it down, shall we?
Okay, so the first part of the trailer is pretty tame. We get a reminder that Daenerys has arrived in Dragonstone and is ready to kick some ass.
But then we see Samwell Tarly's jerk father pay homage to Cersei in King's Landing.
We also get our first look at the ~new~ Dickon Tarly, who has been recast this season. He's now being played by Black Sails star Tom Hopper.
Then there's a shot of a very LARGE Lannister army.
Some not-so-stellar archery by the folks at Winterfell.
And Jon Snow explaining the obvious: "We can't defeat the Night King's army on our own. Daenerys has dragonfire."
As well as Lord Yohn Royce being a total party pooper: "A Targaryen cannot be trusted."
Littlefinger, meanwhile, is lurking in the shadows and probably thinking, I LOVE IT when people disagree with Jon Snow.
Ser Davos then recites a line we've heard before: "If we don't band together, we will die."
Although this trailer sure makes it look like he's addressing Sansa at this point.
Here we have Dany sitting on the throne at Dragonstone with a Dothraki soldier at her side.
Then, OH WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE? Euron "Hot Topic" Greyjoy kneeling by Cersei's side!
Lyanna Mormont keeping it real: "Winter is here, your grace."
Then a close-up shot of a sword/dagger, which MAYBE belongs to Grey Worm...
...because the next thing we see is the Unsullied storming a castle — probably Casterly Rock based on the Lannister's sigil (plus the architecture doesn't seem to match the Red Keep).
Finally, Jon chokes out Littlefinger.
Euron parades through King's Landing, showing off those two good hands.
Meanwhile, Jaime continues to use his ONE good hand on Cersei.
Then we get a reminder that THIS is finally going to happen.
We see Theon and Yara looking at what are probably ships on fire during the sea battle.
Arya like, "Fuck is that Ed Sheeran...again?!"
Then what could MAYBE be Ser Davos (or Brienne?) being escorted up that treacherous path to Dragonstone.
Littlefinger telling Sansa, "Every possible series of events is happening, all at once."
...Daenerys brooding (with a very fabulous new brooch, might I add).
Jaime getting back to work post-coitus.
An unfortunate turn of events for some Unsullied.
An Unsullied (probably Grey Worm) with what is maybe that sword we saw earlier in the trailer.
Yara and Ellaria Sand forming a hot new alliance.
Ser Jorah, NOT totally overtaken with Greyscale...yet.
And finally, Melisandre at Dragonstone telling Daenerys, "I believe you have a role to play...as does another."
