Game of Thrones Season 7 won’t be released until summer 2017, but spoilers are already beginning to show up online. The new season, which is currently filming, is expected to be the best yet. Fans are already dying to know what’s in store for their favorite characters, and it seems that two new plots for the upcoming season have been leaked.
According to Express, the two storylines that have allegedly been leaked straight from the set include one family in particular. No, it’s not the Starks, Lannister, or Targaryens, but the Greyjoy family. It seems an alliance formed by a member of the Greyjoy family will stir up some big drama during Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
Rumor has it that Euron Greyjoy, whom viewers met in Season 6, will come to King’s Landing and team up with none other than the newly-crowned queen, Cersei Lannister. Cersei is currently sitting on the Iron Throne after she killed all of her enemies in one swoop by blowing up the Sept using the always-dangerous wildfire.
Cersei doesn’t have many friends, and she could certainly use all the help keeping her spot on the throne. In addition to the Mountain and her brother, Jaime Lannister, Cersei is basically on her own. Euron will likely bring with him the men from the Iron Islands, who may possibly join her army and serve their queen. Of course, Euron has already said in the past that he wants to be king and had planned to marry Daenerys Targaryen and help her take the throne. However, since Cersei is already queen, he’ll likely believe she’s an easier way for him to become king.
Meanwhile, as Game of Thrones fans know, Daenerys is coming after the throne as well. In the Season 6 finale, viewers watched as Dany and her huge army, which includes the Dothraki and Unsullied, hit the sea and headed straight for Westeros. Dany, along with Tyrion Lannister, is ready to fight for the throne, and they have some powerful allies. Not only are the Tyrell’s now fighting with Daenerys, but Theon and Yara Greyjoy are also under her command. This will lead to an epic showdown between Theon, Yara, and their uncle Euron in the future.
This Greyjoy family reunion will reportedly end badly for one of the siblings. The report states that Euron will meet up with his niece and nephew again and that he’ll end up capturing one of them. Are Theon and Yara’s lives in danger? Now that Game of Thrones is starting to wind down and tie up loose ends for the end of the series, it seems that any and all characters are fair game to kill off.
In Season 6 alone, Game of Thrones viewers watched as many characters were killed off. Characters such as Hodor, Ramsay Bolton, Tommen Baratheon, Rickon Stark, Grand Maester Pycelle, Loras Tyrell, Alliser Thorne, Olly, Walder Frey, the High Sparrow, the Blackfish, Walda Frey and her son, Balon Greyjoy, the Waif, Lancel Lannister, the Three-Eyed Raven, Margaery Tyrell, and Osha all had their final scenes in Season 6.
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones fans are hoping that Season 7 may also confirm another long-standing theory about Tyrion Lannister. Many fans believe that Tyrion could possibly be another member of the Targaryen family, much like Jon Snow was revealed to be in Season 6. If this theory is true, it would be a huge game changer for the character and the series.
