‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 First Look Arrives in HBO’s “Coming in 2017” Trailer

     November 28, 2016


Surely you’ve noticed that those pesky paparazzi have been snapping photos and video from the set of Game of Thrones and revealing some pretty major spoilers from its seventh and penultimate season. But if you’re hoping for some actual footage, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that we have some. The bad news is that it’s in the form of a mere seconds of segments squished into HBO’s trailer for its 2017 slate.

The “Coming in 2017” trailer debuted on the network last night during the latest, mind-blowing episode of Westworld. In it, we see visions of Sansa (Sophie Turner) in the Godswood at Winterfell, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) riding a horse, and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) talking to someone at what is either Winterfell or Castle Black.

The past few seasons have been nothing but awful to the Stark family, but Season 6 was their moment for vengeance. Sansa, having escaped the clutches of Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), helped Jon to take back Winterfell in what was dubbed “The Battle of the Bastards.” Arya, meanwhile, learned the strength of her own identity and gave up her path of becoming a Faceless (Wo)Man to go and check someone off her hit list.

While we still don’t know a lot about Season 7 beyond the spoilers revealed in various set photos, here’s what we do know…

Jon is the child of Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna, proving a large piece of the L + R = J theory. Assuming the other piece is true (that Rhaegar Targaryen is his birth father), that would make Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) his aunt — and she’s on her way to Westeros to take the Iron Throne with an army of Dothraki, Unsullied, Ironborn, and dragons. Cersei (Lena Headey) is currently on the throne, having disintegrated her enemies with dragon fire.

With only two seasons left before the series finale, there’s sure to be more bloodshed and tears.
