HBO just released the official first look of Game of Thrones season 7 and with it comes a major spoiler. It seems fate is turning for the Starks in the upcoming season of the epic fantasy TV show.
Last Sunday night, HBO aired a “Coming in 2017” preview during the penultimate episode of Westworld. The promo includes a quick look of the Starks in action in the anticipated season seven of the fantasy epic. The network teased with three brief season 7 promos that hinted that a major reunion will come in Winterfell.
Thankfully, Watchers on the Wall managed to screenshot the very quick footage. Since then, speculations are rampant about the images. HBO might as well indirectly confirmed that a major Starks reunion will come in the upcoming season.
The promos feature Sansa, donning a Catelyn Stark-inspired wig, standing in the godswoods, gazing into the camera. Arya, meanwhile, is on horseback in the North, probably on her way to check off another name on her kill list. And finally there’s Jon Snow, looking every bit as broody as last season, in conversation with what looks to be a redhead at Winterfell.
MTV speculates that fans will finally see the Stark sisters meet for the first time since their father’s beheading. Since Arya is on her way to Winterfell, it would be fitting that the first person she encounters is Sansa in the godswoods. It would explain Sansa’s surprised look in the images.
Additionally, Arya is wearing Northern winter clothes. That alone gives a lot of explanation of what is to come in the upcoming season. It also corroborates the production leaks where they were photographed donning Northern clothes.
John Snow, meanwhile is at Winterfell. Now that he’s inherited the title of King in the North, perhaps it is finally time for a counterattack on the Lannisters. Especially if the rumors are true about a possible alliance with Daenerys Targaryen.
However, HBO did not release any official announcement regarding the images. Speculations are the only source of news at this point. Fans will have to tune in on Game of Thrones season 7 which will air on HBO in 2017 to know the truth.
