The first full trailer for the hugely anticipated Game of Thrones Season 7, aired last night.
Although there’s no footage from the new series, it does include one huge spoiler and hint at the season’s overarching plot for the upcoming episodes.
Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are each seen walking to their thrones.
The Lannister Queen is seen to claim the Iron Throne. At the end of season six, Cersei ended up on the Iron Throne after killing off the High Sparrow…along with Margaery Tyrell. In a parting look from Jaime, he didn’t seem best pleased with his sister. Waking up to the fact that she is pure evil, could Jamie be the one to finish her off?
The King of the North, Jon Snow, is seen returning to his seat in Winterfell. Jon’s parentage was discovered at the end of last season as it was revealed in Bran’s flashback that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark were Jon’s true parents….making Jon a Targaryen AND a Stark. Fire meeting ice. A song of ice and fire.
Doe this mean that the season will revolve around Jon Snow?
In the trailer, Daenerys finally claims her throne…just not the one most want her to.
The Mother of Dragons heads to Dragonstone, ancient Targaryen stronghold that was previously under the rule of Stannis Baratheon. Teaming up with the youngest Lannister at the end of last season as she sailed to Westeros, is Daenerys about to declare war?
The music from the trailer is also quite revealing. Using a cover of James’ ‘Sit Down,’ the lyrics hints that Cersei, Jon and Daenerys must try to put aside their differences in order to take on the real threat of the White Walkers.
At the end of the trailer, the White Walker’s leader can be seen watching, showing that the threat of their army is imminent.
