[Hey, if you’re not caught up on Game Of Thrones, it’s probably kind of a bad idea to look at pictures and read words that might give away what happened already on Game Of Thrones. Think about it.]
This Sunday, we say goodbye to season six of Game Of Thrones, sending it out to wander the TV countryside for a while before conveniently returning at the precise moment when we need it the most, much like a character on Game Of Thrones. The penultimate episodes of this series are always where the action is, but there are still a lot of narrative threads that need to be wrapped up on this Sunday’s season finale. Let’s find out what those will be in these first-look photos, released by HBO earlier today:
Oh hey, Bran. Too bad about the Three-Eyed Raven, but you’re hanging with Uncle Benjen, so you’re safe—for now. We’re not really sure how far you can get in your training to become the new Three-Eyed Raven in one episode, but we bet you’re going to have a vision of two people whose names rhyme with Brianna Park and Hagar Shmarshmaryen.
After last week’s dragon-based display of power, things will likely be pretty quiet in Meereen, although some decisions that will affect the course of season seven might be made. The “next on” trailer after last week’s episode saw Daenerys and Tyrion discussing her father’s evil nature, which is presumably also what they’re talking about here.
Honestly, Davos, we have no idea how you didn’t figure out this whole Shireen thing earlier, but you’re definitely going to make a speech about it.
As long as Bronn makes more dirty jokes, we’ll be happy, honestly. Love that guy. Also, the Lannisters will need to rally their troops now that the Starks have regained control of the North, but they don’t have a lot of allies left. Which brings us to…
Walder Frey. You’re so gross, and a weasel to boot. You’re also dumb enough to think you can out-scheme the Lannisters, which you can’t.
Oof, Loras. You might be screwed, buddy. But Marjorie is looking out for you, and there’s always the chance that those “rumors” Cersei and Qyburn were talking about was the stash of wildfire the Targaryens supposedly stashed under King’s Landing, and she’ll burn the whole city to the ground before she’ll let the High Sparrow win. Not that that’s a much better outcome for you.
Also, still no Dorne, huh?
