With just over a week before the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones, the first episode details have finally been released.
On Friday afternoon, HBO unveiled the descriptions, along with the titles, of the first three episodes of Season 7. The descriptions are short, but they offer some great hints about what’s to come.
Check out the titles and descriptions below.
Episode 7×01 ‘Dragonstone’ (July 16)
Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home. Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
Episode 7×02 ‘Stormborn’ (July 23)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros. Written for television by Bryan Cogman; directed by Mark Mylod.
Episode 7×03 ‘The Queen’s Justice’ (July 30)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes. Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.
So, there are a couple big takeaways from these new details. First and foremost, Dany returns to Dragonstone in the season premiere. This indicates that the final two seasons will move at a much faster pace than the ones that came before.
Secondly, the ‘Stormborn’ episode looks to have some major scenes included. If Jon is facing a revolt, could it be from his sister Sansa? After all, Kit Harrington has said the two will be at odds this season.
You’ve also got that bit about Tyrion planning out the conquest of Westeros. The eventual defeat of the Lannisters will come at the hands of the one family member they never gave any credit.
Winter is almost here, as the seventh season of Game of Thrones premieres on July 16 on HBO.
