Good folks hardly win when playing the Game of Thrones. However, maybe they’re in for a turn of tables when winter comes this summer.
In any event, a few powers of good are beginning to bring in fresh new photographs from the seventh season of Game of Thrones. The photographs, which were released on Thursday by HBO, showcase Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) wearing new attire as they venture into their roles as leaders. As it is, Jon is the King in the North, and Dany is the future Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. In addition to this, Dany’s whole squad is clad in similar clothing. The attire gloats of a scale-like texture that is similar to the brutal dragons of House Targaryen.
However, as far as other details are concerned, we’re only at the tip of the iceberg. For example, will we see more Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) and Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) sharing screen time? What’s more, will there be more of Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey), Lady of Bear Island? Well, we’re certainly not grumbling about that.
As an update for individuals who haven’t checked out Thrones since it finished its 6th season, we have a fast refresher course: The natives of the Seven Kingdoms are at the verge of breaking, particularly the ones who live in King’s Landing. The season six finale highlighted Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) taking revenge on her terrible adversaries. She razed the Sept of Baelor and immolated innocents with wildfire, to obliterate a chosen few. Furthermore, Cersei’s last kid, King Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman), committed suicide. This left Cersei with a seat on the Iron Throne, and an unmistakable taste of ash in her mouth.
On the other hand, in the North, a major development took place: Jon Snow, straight from vanquishing Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) in the epic “Skirmish of the Bastards,” resisted his half-Stark odds and turned into the new King in the North, apparently to Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Littlefinger’s (Aidan Gillen) annoyance. Much to their dismay, and little does Jon know, that the new Lord of Winterfell has more than the ice of House Stark running through his veins: During an excursion to the past, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) found that Jon’s actual mother is Lyanna Stark, and it’s emphatically proposed that his real father is the late Rhaegar Targaryen. This develpoment gives Jon one of the strongest heirs to the Iron Throne.
However, Jon isn’t the one and only Targaryen in Westeros, or possibly he won’t be for long. Season six finished with a famous picture that long-term watchers have longed for right from the first season: Daenerys cruising towards Westeros, prepared to claim her rights. With partners like Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill) on her side, it is incautious to wager against the Mother of Dragons.
Game of Thrones will air its seventh season on July 16, with seven episodes. Check out the 15 the new photographs below.
