At the end of season 6 Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent. (via Coming Soon)
Winter is here.
Oh lordy, by the Old Gods of the Forest and the Seven, winter is most definitely, catastrophically here.
And as expected, it is bringing death, destruction and near-apocalyptic menace as the Night King sweeps south with his ghoulish undead army trailing menacingly behind.
As Jon Snow rightly observes in his entreaty to his allies and enemies to come together against their common foe, the White Walkers are the real enemy to worry about, and should they prevail the game of thrones that has sustained the show for the last six seasons, will be exposed as a futile waste of time and energy.
“Don’t fight in the North or the south. Fight every battle everywhere, always, in your mind.” (Ser Petyr Baelish)
That doesn’t mean of course that anyone will likely listen to him, and we can expect a great deal more death and destruction before the truncated seventh season, which runs to seven episodes (though two episodes are 60 minutes plus and the finale is 90 minutes long), runs its blood-stained course.
Game of Thrones premieres its seventh season on 16 July on HBO.
