Game of Thrones Season 7 Preview: Everything Essential to Know Before a Premiere

The using fun with Game of Thrones is that it’s usually like Twitter—there are 140 characters and we never have any thought what is going on. But a good thing about a uncover that is so peaceful to cut a throats of even a many distinguished stars is that, as it enters a penultimate season, there’s unexpected a many some-more docile volume of characters and storylines. Let’s take a demeanour during where we left off before a deteriorate 7 premiere (and a unavoidable HBO Now crash) this Sunday, Jul 16.

King’s Landing

Cersei Lannister did us all a preference and blew adult a garland of tertiary characters when she motionless to blow adult a Sept of Baelor in a deteriorate 6 finale, wiping out many of a Tyrell clan, including Queen Margaery and her hermit Loras, a High Sparrow, and all of his lame minions. As a result, her son Tommen jumped out of a window (in a GIF that will live on in infamy) and she seized energy for herself.

In one of a final scenes of a season, we see Cersei, in her Rhythm Nation get-up, being crowned a queen. Her brother/lover Jaime arrives from a Riverlands to see what she has finished and is unequivocally concerned. The problem is that Cersei has pissed off a Tyrells, a Lannister’s usually remaining allies among a good houses, and Cersei’s explain to a bench is gossamer during best. She might be in charge, though she has no gifted advisors, small renouned support, and will substantially be inextricable in a liaison about how she got there in a initial place. Hey, what other crazy blonde with violent brief hair does that sound like?

The North

Jon Snow has been named a King of a North interjection to a sullen 8-year-old Lyanna Mormont and his feat during a Battle of a Bastards that capped off a final season. But that conflict was unequivocally won by his sister Sansa Stark, who called Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish and on a Knights of a Vale to lift Jon out of a fire.

Will these dual be in cahoots?

Jon is not scarcely finished fighting. Instead of streamer off to disintegrate a Lannisters in King’s Landing like his comparison hermit Robb would have, he’s building a bloc to take on a Night King and a Army of a Dead when they impetus on a living. Ser Davos Seaworth will assistance Jon lead his bloc containing all a houses of a North, a Wildling army he’s amassed, and a Night’s Watch. His biggest problem, however, is going to be his sister Sansa. After all, she is a one with a Stark final name and, with Littlefinger’s prodding, doesn’t seem calm to play second fiddle. Also what will everybody do when they find out a law of Jon’s parentage, that he’s indeed half Stark and half Targaryen.

The Mother of Dragons

The biggest hazard to a standing quo, of march is Daenerys Targaryen, her outrageous swift of ships, her army of Unsullied and Dothraki, and her 3 fully-grown dragons sailing for King’s Landing. Cersei’s depleted army are certainly no compare for Dany’s forces, generally now that a eunuch Varys has enlisted Ellaria Sand and her daughters, as good as Olenna Tyrell, a Queen of Thorns, who wish zero some-more than to take punish on Cersei.

Another challenging duo.

Dany also has some good advisors on her side, including Tyrion Lannister, who has insinuate believe of King’s Landing and a defenses interjection to when he lead a Lannisters to feat during a Battle of Blackwater Bay behind in deteriorate two. There is also Varys and all of his smashing small birds who will substantially still be murmur in his ears as shortly as he lands.

Out in a Wild

There are still a few pivotal characters who aren’t accounted for in a 3 categorical areas of intrigue. We final saw Arya Stark when she assassinated Walder Frey after feeding him a cake done of a strength of his possess sons. There are still a garland of names on Arya’s kill list, including Cersei, The Mountain, The Hound, Mellisandre, and a integrate of a Brothers though Banners.

Speaking of The Hount and a Brothers, we final saw The Hound after he had found God (or seven) and some jerks killed all of a people in his Bible investigate group. He got punish by murdering them and presumably fasten adult with a Brothers though Banners.

Mellisandre was diminished from Winterfell after Ser Davos detected that she burnt Princess Shireen during a finish of deteriorate five. Jon outcast her from a North and she’s now usually roaming around. Maybe she’ll offshoot adult with a Band of Brothers, who also follow a Lord of Light. It would certain make things easy for Arya.

Arya’s hermit Bran, who is now a Three-Eyed Raven, is still north of The Wall and perplexing to make his approach behind to Winterfell to tell Jon Snow about a Night King and who his genuine relatives are. As usual, Jon Snow knows nothing.

Also wondering around is Brienne of Tarth, who we final saw rowing divided from Riverrun on an errand for her lady Sansa Stark. We assume that she’s headed behind to a North to join Sansa, though given this is Game of Thrones she could usually be rowing forever.

Until Sunday.
