HBO just released the second trailer for the upcoming seventh season of Game Of Thrones and oh my GOD, it is EVERYTHING! It’s hard to know what it all means with no context, but here’s a brief rundown of a few things that caught our interest in the two-minute trailer.
This is obviously going to be a season filled with battles, including one at sea involving Dany’s dragons, which apparently leaves Theon and Yara stunned. We also get a shot of Euron Greyjoy, supposedly this season’s “big bad” (i.e. the new Joffrey or Ramsay) towards the end of the trailer.
But perhaps the most intriguing part of the whole trailer is when we hear Jon saying “for centuries our families fought together against their common enemy”. Who is he talking to and is he speaking as a Stark or as a Targaryen? WE WANT TO KNOW! Why can’t it be July 16 already?
The trailer ends in epic fashion with Sansa’s ominous portent “when the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives” as Jon defeats someone in battle. Could this mean another Stark death is coming? It certainly doesn’t sound good.
Game Of Thrones Season 7 premieres July 16, 2017, on HBO.
