New "Game Of Thrones" Footage Suggests A Long-Overdue Reunion Is Imminent

"A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell, and I'm going home."

Posted on

With just over a month to go until Game of Thrones Season 7, you're probably very, VERY ready for it by now.

And HBO being HBO, they are doing a good job of teasing us. This week we had a behind-the-scenes video from the costume department.

Costume designer Michele Clapton talks us through the costuming process and where she gets her inspiration.

In it we get a surprising amount of new footage, such as Samwell Tarly reaching for something in the Citadel library...

...Tyrion going for a stroll along the beach, quite probably on Dragonstone...

...and a happy Hound playing with a bucket of fake snow and a massive fan.

But arguably the most telling shots are of the Stark girls. First, we see Arya riding a horse – just as we did in the trailer.

The problem up to now is that we have no idea where she is. Last we saw she was at the Twins, killing Walder Frey and his sons. But we don't know whether she'll head home from there, or go in search of the remaining people on her infamous list, now that she's got a taste for blood/Frey pie.

As you can see – unsurprisingly – it is clear from the handle that wherever she is, Arya is still carrying Needle, the sword Jon made for her in Season 1.

Next, we get a shot of Sansa in what is quite clearly the crypt at Winterfell. But what's that in the hands of the woman behind her?

Reddit user /u/N355UN0 spotted that if you zoom in, it's quite clear that Needle has come home to Winterfell. Which can only mean one thing...

Arya and Sansa will (we hope), for the first time in six seasons, be TOGETHER at WINTERFELL! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

These photos from a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly definitely hinted that there would be more Stark reunions ahead, but we've been burned before, so until now we didn't want to let ourselves believe it.

And while we're here, there's also a rather interesting shot of Jon Snow.

He's clearly stood on a cliff, without snow on the ground, with the sea behind him. This means it's certainly not Winterfell, and probably isn't even the North. So where could it be? Well we've just seen Dany arrive at Dragonstone in the trailer – could Jon be on his way to meet his aunt? We certainly hope so.
