Yooooo. You want to get my blood pumping in all the right places? Give me Daenerys threateningly walking down a dark hallway. Give it a peep and then I’ll unleash my thoughts.
So, what do we have here? Well, not much to be frank.
The most noteworthy aspect of the trailer is wherever the hell Daenerys is:
It’s quite obviously not THE Iron Throne, so where is she?
After a little office discussion, this could be one of two places. Either Dragonstone, where the Targaryens once landed off the coast of Westeros but were booted when the Baratheon’s took the throne.
Or it’s The Iron Islands, considering the fact the Dany & the gang squaded up with the Greyjoys.
Other than that, this trailer offers nothing in the light of the plot, other than that Cersei is still queen, Jon is still king, Daenerys is still on her way to Westeros, and the White Walkers are still ready to kill everyone. The purpose of this trailer seems to be setting up this season’s three-headed power struggle between Jon, Cersei, and Daenerys. Clearly, Daenerys is already on her way to Westeros, but what will bring Jon Snow to the south? You know they aren’t traveling north to him, so it only makes sense that he’d be the one that comes down.
Has he heard of Cersei’s scheming ways? Or is it to warn the capital about the incoming war? Either way, something is going to have to fuse the storylines of the north and the south, and with only seven episodes left this season, it will have to happen quickly. With only seven episodes this season, it will be interesting to see how quick of a pace the writers will move at. Game Of Thrones has always been a show that has embraced (and wildly succeeded at) taking their time. Now, with only 13 hours left in the series, a lot of plot lines need to be connected and closed.
Assuming the final season consists almost entirely of The Great War, I’ve got Jon Snow & Daenerys finally meeting in this year’s season finale. After that, it’s up north for the war to end all wars.
