Winter is here! Game Of Thrones Season 7 is set to hit our screens on the 16th July 2017. After what seems like forever, we will finally get some long awaited answers. Will Daenerys make it to Westeros? Will she sit on the iron throne? Or maybe Jon snow is destined to be the next King of the seven kingdoms after we found out last season he has royal blood! Whatever happens, let's just hope Cersei doesn't stay in control of things!
With winter well and truly underway, it's quite disappointing there will only be 7 episodes. With so much to cram into these episodes, let's just hope they're as good as last season. Season 7 will show us some familiar faces and some new ones too, including singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran making a guest appearance. Season 7 is said to get very dark. Alfie Allen ( Theyon Greyjoy) AKA Reek has teased that this season will push all the limits. He added:
” There will be more dragons and lot's more torture“
As always, we have seen many rumours and predictions circling the internet. Here are a few we have come by:
Walder Frey Returns
After watching Arya give Walder Frey a very gruesome end, it's unlikely that Walder will come back as himself. When Arya slit Walder's throat after serving him his sons in a pie, we were sure that was the end of him. However, it has been rumoured that Arya will use the face of Walder Frey to seek vengeance for the Red Wedding. Interesting!
Sansa and Littlefinger
Apparently, we can expect a much more ruthless Sansa in season 7. She has definitely come a long was from the nieve child we first met in season one. After being a victim for quite some time and being forced into two arranged marriages. It seems Lady Sansa has found her voice and is finally stepping up! After having a taste of power in season 6 when she fed Ramsey Bolton to his hounds, it's said that she will hold onto her new found strength and become a lot more fearless.
It's also said that Littlefinger (Peryr Baelish) will push Sansa to betray Jon. Littlefinger has been conspiring to marry Sansa for quite a while using his manipulative charms. Apparently though, Sansa will stay loyal to Jon and Littlefinger will pay for his crimes in traditional Stark Manner. We really hope to see more of the new Sansa in season 7. This power definitely suits her well.
Daenerys Will Sit On The Iron Throne
At the end of season 6, we saw the Mother of dragons sailing to Westeros. but does she have what it takes to take what is hers? Considering she has a strong claim to the throne and the people seem to love her, it is quite likely she will rule the 7 kingdoms. Rumours have been popping up that Daenerys, Jon and Cersei will form an alliance against the white walkers. However, as we have seen before, Cersei does not work well with others. It has been said that the breaker of chains will use her large army and dragons to conquer Westeros and finally take her place as the leader she was born to be.
These are only rumours and in true G.O.T style, we will just have to wait and see. We're all very much looking forward to the much-anticipated winter and it wouldn't be Game Of Thrones without a bit of death here and there.
Let us know in the comments what your predictions are and remember, the night is dark and full of terrors!
