The new Game of Thrones season is out and we are all definitely excited about it. We were made to wait longer than normal. Usually, a new game of thrones season is premiered in April but this time it will premiere on July 16th, 2017. But apparently our patience is set to be rewarded, as this season will have the longest season premiere since the first season.
While seasons one to six was made up of ten episodes, season seven will contain only seven episodes. Be that as it may, due to the show’s enormous desire for this season, they are investing the same amount of time this season as they have done in seasons past.
This season’s official trailer was released on the May 24th, 2017. In the trailer Queen Cersei, Daenerys and Jon Snow making their way to their respective thrones, although all doesn’t seem to be well for Cersei as she believes she has enemies on all four corners of the world. “Enemies to the East”, Grey Worm is seen standing before Unsullied army, and he now wears a silver dragon sigil, as do all the Queen of Dragon’s team. “Enemies to the West” most likely Euron Greyjoy who is hunting Theon and Yara Greyjoy. “Enemies of the South”, most likely someone from Dorne, perhaps one of the Sand Snakes who is sharpening his or her spear. “Enemies to the North”, Arya who has the Queen Cersei on her death list is shown wandering alone.
Also, the Queen of Dragons enters the home of her ancestors “Dragonstone”, in what is to be the first step in her plot to take back Westeros. Her soldiers both the Unsullied army and Dothraki horsemen are seen in different parts of the trailer at war with the Lanister army. Melisandre “the red witch”, who was expelled from Winterfell by Jon Snow is seen in Dragonstone, probably trying to team up with the Queen of Dragons.
In the north, Jon Snow is still the proclaimed “King in the North”, but Lord Balish seems to be plotting against him and is seen trying to manipulate Lady Sansa has Jon Snow prepares for the long-awaited war.
There also seems to be some enticing love stories in store. The first is that of Missandei and the Grey Worm, it will be interesting to see how that relationship turns out knowing that Grey Worm is circumcised. The other love story that is brewing is that of Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand, but this might be a cause for concern has the last person that Ellaria Sand kissed (Princess Myrcella) died from her kiss. Either way, the scene all but confirms that Yara Greyjoy and her brother teamed up with Daenerys Targaryen.
Although the white walkers weren’t shown much in the trailer, the season’s key art hints that the White Walkers would play a major role this season, with a chilling look at the Night King. There is also a scene in the trailer where Jon Snow and Tormund Giantsbane are seen running in a place that seems like they are beyond the wall. Are they running away from the white walkers? This season well anticipated season will surely answer many of the questions we have and will satisfy the longing we have for our favorite TV show. Watch game of thrones online here.
