First off, we are totally here for these snippet trailers that seemingly tell us nothing but incite anxiety about the upcoming season of ‘Game of Thrones’ all the same. HBO totally has us wrapped around its little finger. No pun intended!
At least this footage gives us something to work with until July. What are we talking about? On March 30th, the official Twitter page for “Game of Thrones’ released their latest sneak peak of season 7. Too bad there was enough ambiguity inside the 90 second promo to paint an entirely different series. That leaves fans with more time to speculate.
Here are some interpretations concerning the symbolic imagery found inside the promo:
1. King Greyjoy will not be a factor this season
All that huffing, puffing and drowning at sea may render pointless for Theon’s favorite uncle (not really), if he couldn’t land a spot on the season’s first promo. According to speculating fans, the show has already picked its top guns and Euron Greyjoy, king of the Iron Islands, is not one of them or so it seems. However, Bran is scheduled to play a significant role during season 7, yet he was missing from the teaser as well. Should we worry about Bran’s safety, if the promo is a telltale sign of important players? Food for thought or nervous questions? You all be the judge.
2. Cersei will become a wight
If true, such will not be too much of a fall from grace for this ice queen. Thanks to the cool air Cersei blows from her mouth towards the end of the promo, imaginative fans believe Cersei’s demise by the cold side is inevitable.
These ideas extend to a larger theory that the Night King and his zombie band of hoodlums will make it as far south as King’s Landing. This counters the theory that the battle for mankind will remain in the North – at the Wall.
3. Jon Snow leaves the North
This may be the guestimation that holds the most weight, especially since we now know Jon Snow, King of the North, is also a Targaryen. Unlike the ladies who are taking the “Long Walk” to their respective thrones in the teaser, Jon Snow never sits in the grand chair of his ancestral home. We simply see him in the great hall, standing by the table. Could it be a creative decision made by the show runners or could this segue mean something more? Many say, like his uncle-father and brother, if Jon goes south of Winterfell, he will not return alive. Scary thought.
4. The final battle will be at Dragonstone
This makes sense. Before his death, Stannis Baratheon’s seat was at Dragonstone. It is where Ned sent word that Stannis was the rightful king upon Robert’s death, it’s where Stannis and Melisandre created the baby who killed Renly. It is also where a mass amount of obsidian exists. Stannis confirmed this tidbit with Sam Tarly in season 5.
Why is Obsidian, also known as Dragonglass, important? It is is one of the only two materials known to kill White Walkers.Thanks to the teaser, we know that Danaerys returns to Dragonstone – the place of her birth – to claim heiress and ruler of Westeros.
We think this theory, coupled with others mentioned here and the fact that Sam is in the south with a Valyrian sword, further confirms the speculation that the Night Army will make it far into Westeros. What a shame if this is true.
There are many others in the south, but we felt it important to point out that Melisandre, The Red Sorceress, was sent that way early last season.
5. Old Nan was right?
Many of you may ask, Old Nan!? Who is that? In season 1, she was the elderly lady who sat at Bran’s bedside, telling scary stories, as he recovered from his fateful fall. Last season we saw a younger version of her during Bran’s green dream back to old Winterfell with the former Three-Eyed Raven as his escort.
Here’s what we know. Nan told Bran that the sky was blue because the world existed inside the eye of a giant. Bran relayed this message to his brother who chalked it up as fables, but Bran considered the possibilities. Later, in season 4 Oberyn Martell mentions the same story to Tywin Lannister, briefly repeating it as a foolish superstition.
Fans speculate that the mysterious face we have seen in the initial teaser and this follow up promo is that of the blue-eyed giant name Macumber who is said to exist north of the wall, not the icy eye of the Night King.
What do you think of these theories? We are mindful that fans predicted Jon Snow as a Targaryen. Anything is possible.
