There is a week to go before Game Of Thrones Season 7 hits TV screens, and fans are excitedly waiting for the first episode. HBO released the synopsis of Episodes 1, 2, and 3 depicting what to expect from the most sought after TV Series in the pay channel's history, which will have its premiere on July 16, 2017. There are seven episodes this season, instead of what speculators predicted to be 10; each episode is longer and more enhanced in terms of action and drama than the previous seasons of Game of Thrones. The Season 7 chapters have longer run times to maximize the plots of the program.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 is called "Dragonstone." In this episode, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) tackles the preparation of the Wall's defense against the army of the undead that is encroaching the perimeters of the kingdom. He is also dealing with his ascension as the "King of the North."While Jon Snow is busy building the defense of the Northern Wall in Episode 1, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. The "new" queen of the seven kingdoms is blindly followed and protected by the giant hulk called the Mountain, who does all the executions for her.
Queen Cersei Lannister's children, Joffrey, Mycella, and Tommen, all had brutal deaths, causing her to rule the kingdoms of Westeros ruthlessly and without mercy. She has possession of the wildfire that Tyrion Lannister used to burn the invading fleet of Stannis Baratheon. Wildfire is a burning chemical that can burn wood, concrete, and even melt steel with its green burning hue decimating anything it makes contact with, reports Westeros.org.
The Game of Thrones TV series has received multiple awards since 2011, totaling 27 accolades. The most recent awards garnered by the TV program are Directors Guild for America Awards 2017 to Miguel Sapochnik; The American Society of Cinematographers Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography in a Regular Series for Non-Commercial Television 2017 to Fabian Wagner; and The Costume Designer Guild Awards 2017 to Michele Clapton and April Ferry.Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 1, is also when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) comes home to reclaim Westeros. With her is a multi-cultured army consisting of about 200 slaver's ships, 100 Greyjoy vessels, 200 ships from the Redwyne fleet, and the rest coming from Dorne. Her army embarked with a mass of at least 200,000 men from Essos, including 8,000 from the unsullied army, 100,000 from the Dothraki, and 5,000 iron-born.
With her three ferocious dragons, her allies at Westeros await with the same number of men. The Reach has the most number of soldiers, with about 100,000 men waiting for Daenerys' army at the docks of Westeros for mobilization.
Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 2, has a title of "Stormborn." The title refers to Daenerys Targaryen's middle name. The sneak peek describes Jon Snow facing a revolt in his ranks. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) plans the takeover of the seven kingdoms of Westeros. The queen of dragons will be seen entering Westeros with the specific location at the Targaryan ancestral abode, the island fortress of Dragonstone. "Stormborn" will premiere on July 23, 2017.
Episode 3 of Game of Thrones Season 7 is going to be called "The Queen's Justice." The queen of dragons holds court and Queen Cersei Lannister will be seen returning a gift while Jamie Lanister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns his lesson, reports the Mirror.
