Thrones Is Coming

If you have not seen the new Game Of Thrones trailer yet, what rock have you been hiding under? Don’t worry though, you can watch it here. Enjoy.

We’re entering the endgame of “Game of Thrones” with the seventh season of HBO’s blockbuster this year, but it’s not business as usual for the series.

The final two seasons — the seventh and eighth — will each be shorter than the typical 10-episode seasons we’ve seen for the past six years, as they’ll only have seven and six episodes each, respectively. And season seven won’t kick off in the spring the way previous season have, either.

HBO has, finally,  revealed when “Game of Thrones” season 7 is kicking off: July 16. About three months after the normal time for a new season to start, and after a normal season ends, even — season 6 ended on June 26 last year.

So where did we finish up  and what do we have to look forward to?

The King in the North, but not the Queen in the North? That’s the questions one Miss Sansa Stark may be asking herself after her brother is declared King by the Northmen.

Jon Snow

How will their relationship go and what will be Jon’s motives to where he goes from here? Will he avenge his father, mother and brothers (plural) demise?

 

As powerful as Cersei became in her King’s Landing coup, she is going to need more allies than just Qyburn and his little birds. Her hold over the throne is tenuous at best, considering she grabbed it through fear. Jaime is a powerful ally that she probably counted on having, but she may not have him, judging by the look he gave her in the last episode. What is their destiny? Comment below to let me know what you think.

Some of you may have wondered how, exactly, Varys ended up on that ship with Dany, Tyrion, Missendei and the rest for that final glorious shot of the season, considering we just saw him hanging out in Dorne with the Sand Snakes and

Olenna Tyrell. But presumably that means that either Dany swung by Dorne or their ships met up with them somewhere in the middle. Either way, Dany has, at this point, an almost ridiculously stacked deck versus Cersei in King’s Landing, which is where Daario seemed to indicate she was heading. The question now is how much of her power she will unleash and where, and whether or not this coalition can stand.

There are so many questions and I know I have not covered them all. Drop me a comment in the comments box below if you have more questions or ideas as to where the show will go.

For now, thanks for reading my first post.

    1. I’ve been pondering the same question ever since the last episode was first aired. I think the whole of Kings Landing will be terrified and have a sort of oligarchic society where the people are terrified, now that most of the other powers have been wiped out.
      I love Lena Headey, she plays the part so well.
