There can be no denying that Game of Thrones is the big one. Since its release back in 2011, fans of the show have long debated and argued on theories and spoilers for the show based on secret pictures and original material form the books. But now, we are in a whole new territory as the series has filmed quicker than George R. R. Martin can write (not that hard to do, but still). With Nikolaj Coster-Waldau saying that true spoilers are “out there” already, we’ve picked out some of our favourite fan theories in order to decipher what could happen in season 7.
One big starting point is the new release of on-set pictures from the show, which gives away some idea of what we can expect. One picture shows Daenerys Targaryen and co. landing onto, what we can assume is Westeros. The end of last season saw Dany FINALLY set sail for Westeros along with her allies Tyrion Lannister, Grey Worm, Varys and Missandei. Could this series finally be the one where Dany takes the Iron Throne? Some have speculated this picture could be them arriving at Dragonstone, the original home of the Targaryens. Either way, it will be good to finally see some more conquering action from Dany in this season.
Another point to notice in these photos, is how everyone is dressed a lot warmer. Even the Hound has wrapped up a bit warmer than usual. Is winter here at last? It certainly looks that way as even show runners have confirmed that filming took place later in order to get frostier weather. With the arrival of winter comes talk of another fan theory, that the White Walkers will come into Westeros in this series. We’ve already seen what they’re capable of (remember ‘Hardhome’?) but could the biggest battle of them all be about to take place? If this were to happen, will the North need the help of Daenerys and her dragons to defeat them? This is looking a popular theory as Jon Snow and Daenerys would make the ‘Song of Ice and Fire’- the name given to the entire book series.
Back in King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister now sits on the Iron Throne. With no children to keep her sane, could she be the new ‘Mad Queen’? And if so, are we going to see ‘Kingslayer’ Jaime betray his own sister? It’s a popular theory considering Jaime’s history but we will have to wait and see.
“With the end of Game of Thrones drawing in, the series is set to crank things up a notch”
There are countless other fan theories out there, far too many to mention and none of them confirmed, but one thing is for certain, with the end of Game of Thrones drawing in, the series is set to crank things up a notch with the last two seasons and we cannot wait.
