Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers reveal some major plotlines for the upcoming episodes. The new season, which will begin airing in July, is said to be the best and most intense season of the show yet, and fans can’t wait.
Warning: There are major Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers below.
According to Hollywood Life, a new batch of spoilers has been leaked about the first two episodes of Game of Thrones Season 7, and fans are about to see a lot of characters meet face to face for the first time on the series. While HBO is very guarded about revealing information about the hit series, the Toronto Sun visited the set in Belfast, Ireland, and ended up with some big news about the first episodes.
One of the scenes shot while the publication was in attendance featured actor Kit Harington as fan favorite character Jon Snow. Jon was seen telling people he trusts — Sansa Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Ser Davos, Tormund, and Lyanna Mormont — that “dragonglass kills White Walkers, and it’s now more valuable than gold.” Jon then reportedly proposes that the people in the North try to create weapons from dragonglass to use against the White Walkers in the battles that are sure to come.
The second episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 will heavily feature some of the viewer’s favorite female characters. According to the report, Daenerys Targaryen, Yara Greyjoy, Ellaria Sand, Missandei, and Lady Olenna will be “gathered around the map table” and Dragonstone “arguing” about the best way to take down newly crowned queen, Cersei Lannister, and gain control of King’s Landing for Dany. Of course, Daenerys’ most trusted adviser, Tyrion Lannister, as well as Yara’s brother, Theon Greyjoy, will also be present for the conversation.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Game of Thrones Season 7 could be heavily girl-powered. Of course, Dany will continue her quest to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and she’ll have a lot of female force behind her, but Cersei will also fight to keep the crown, and fans know she’ll stop at nothing to get what she wants. As for the Stark girls, viewers can expect to see much of them as well. Arya will be traveling alone and likely heading back to Winterfell, where she’ll reunite with her family. However, her older sister, Sansa, could have some plans of her own.
In a recent interview, actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, revealed that she could see Sansa going over to the dark side and possibly even becoming more like Cersei Lannister.
“‘I can totally see her becoming a Cersei and kind of driven mad by it, by the threats against her family,’ Sophie said in the interview. ‘If that means becoming like a ruthless killer, leader, sadistic woman or evil lady, then so be it. I don’t think it matters to her, and I can see Sansa swinging that way too,’ Sophie revealed, adding that both characters are very ‘family-obsessed’ and ‘family oriented.'”
Of course, Game of Thrones fans know that if Littlefinger has his way, he’ll completely manipulate Sansa into going along with whatever plan he’ll hatch to gain more power for himself. Littlefinger was also infatuated with Sansa’s mother, and after her death, it seems that infatuation became directed at Sansa herself. In the Season 6 finale, Littlefinger even told Sansa that he dreamed of sitting on the Iron Throne with her by his side. Will he get into Sansa’s head enough to turn her against her family, or will this be the season that Littlefinger finally meets his demise?
