Game of Thrones is well known for killing off its main characters just when it’s beginning to grow on you and crushing on what remains of your heart. When the penultimate season of the medieval fantasy epic returns to the small screens, the show will try to repair those remains with a long-awaited reunion.
Filming has already started for the seventh season of Game of Thrones and multiple cast members have been spotted in the set location of Northern Ireland including Kit Harrington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Bella Ramsay (Lyanna Mormont), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark).
New photos emerge about the said cast filming together triggering rumors that the Stark family is about to reunite in the upcoming season. It can be recalled in the season 6 finale that Jon and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) have already taken back Winterfell and are now amassing an army for a showdown with either the Lannisters or the white walkers.
Meanwhile, Arya is last seen near the vicinity of Winterfell as she slit the throat of Walder Frey while Bran is further north, over the Wall getting first-hand treatment of understanding the Stark’s family history.
This could mean that the four Stark members will finally have a joyous moment of reunion in the upcoming season since their respective locations are not that far, except for Bran. But Bran will have a good reason for returning to Winterfell since he will know the true parentage of Jon, who might be the key to ending the war.
Pictures from Watchers on the Wall, the show’s fan site, also fuel speculations about the rumored reunion since Arya was spotted donning a Northern attire, similar to what Lady Mormont was wearing.
Another image was also leaked where Williams and Hempstead-Wright were sharing a makeup trailer meaning they were both on set that day indicating they could be filming together.
With these pictures leaked to the public, could this mean Arya and Bran will return to Winterfell and meet up with Jon and Sansa? Only by tuning into Game of Thrones season 7 will reveal all the answers.
Game of Thrones will return to HBO for a shortened Season 7 in 2017.
