After teasing fans these past few months, HBO has finally released the first official trailer for the highly anticipated Game of Thrones Season 7.
The trailer mainly features Cersei Lannister preparing her troops for battle, Jon Snow fearing the upcoming war in the North, and Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons making their way back to Westeros. Also shown in the teaser are Arya, Jaime, Tyrion, Sansa, Brienne, Melisandre, Littlefinger, Davos, The Mountain, Jorah, Tormund, Missandei, Greyworm, Yara, and Ellaria.
We broke down the trailer and made some guesses as to what might happen this season. Are your observations as good as ours? Scroll down below!
1) The Great War is definitely here
The clash between Daenerys and Cersei is bound to happen this season. On the other hand, there’s also a fight in the North as Jon readies the Wall for the the Night King’s army of dead. Dothraki and Unsullied versus Lannister Troops—we can’t wait!
2) Dorne is back
The trailer mentions some “enemies of the South,” which is presumably the people from Dorne. The cold-blooded murder of Myrcella Baratheon at the hands (or lips) of Ellaria Sand will certainly have consequences. Also, that scene with Yara and Ellaria kissing is a mind-fuck. How did they meet? Is Ellaria going to kill Yara with a kiss as well? What the hell is going on, Dorne?
3) There's just no separating Jaime and Cersei
Looks like nothing can beat the unrequited love between this two. Even if Cersei drove their last remaining child to commit suicide, Jaime still remains to be Cersei’s most trusted lover, err, aid.
4) Dragonstone is back, too
Dragonstone houses the original seat for House Targaryen and is Daenery’s ancestral home. We last saw Dragonstone during the time of Stannis, when he planned the Battle of Blackwater. Now, Daenerys is back on the throne, declaring “I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and I will.”
5) Littlefinger is still a creeper
Littlefinger, as seen in the trailer, is well, still creepy. He’s still attempting to manipulate Sansa and turn her against her brother, Jon Snow. Will there be a Bastard Stark and Legitimate Stark showdown?
6) Melisandre is at…Dragonstone?
Remember Melisandre being banished by Jon? She still believes that Jon is the “chosen one,” but in Season 7, it looks like, she’ll pledge her allegiance to someone else.
7) White Walkers are everywhere
The trailer shows Jon and Tormund running while being chased by the White Walkers. The Great War is here, and it looks like it'll also happen Beyond the Wall.
8) Jorah’s greyscale situation
The gross hand that appears in the teaser looks like Jorah's (and it looks like the greyscale has gotten worse). Poor Jorah just can't seem to catch a break.
9) Where is Bran Stark?
The Stark family is almost complete (the living ones, at least). What happened to Bran after being saved by his undead uncle, Benjen Stark. Will he appear this season? Or does his absence from the trailer hint at his impending demise?
The series premieres in Asia the same time as the U.S.,exclusively on HBO this July 17 at 9 AM, with a same day primetime encore at 9 PM.
