Somebody's blackmailing Jon Snow, y'all Image: Facebook
Game of Thrones has released its chillest trailer yet - not just because its cool, but because you literally feel the chills on this one. And the new #WinterIsHere hashtag hardly helps. The White Walkers are finally here, and they are not just a threat anymore. The new trailer basically covers grounds on all the wars, that season 7 can possibly have. And there is a lot of war. Even by GoT standards.
The trailer starts off with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)'s walk along Godswood, with a voice-over from Littlefinger. "Don't fight in the North. Or in the South. Fight every battle everywhere. Always in your mind." Littlefinger has been trying to manipulate Sansa into going against Jon Snow (Kit Harington). But it's still not clear if she will go against her brother, as there is no love lost between the siblings. The trailer makes the best use of the Rains of Castamere number, which was also used in the ominous Sept of Baelor episode, and is a fan favourite.
The immortal swordsman, Beric Dondarrion is back, and his sword is exactly like a lightsaber, except it catches on fire at his command — so cool. It's not yet clear whose side he is on exactly, but he is fighting. In fact, everyone is fighting everybody in the trailer. That's pretty normal, considering it's GoT. But season 7 is going to see a lot of warfare-related bloodshed, and things being set on fire, courtesy, the dragons. So, Daenerys is pretty at home in Dragonstone (she also pulls down Stannis' banner, and is totally loving the beach). Ser Davos and Jon are at Dragonstone, and chances are that they are meeting with the Khaleesi.
Drogon is seriously huge, and his teeth deserve a lot more screen presence, than they've been getting. Bran finally has a wheelchair, and he will in a way, face the White Walkers (through his ravens). "When the snow falls, and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives," says Sansa, as Jon is seen facing an army alone in the North. So, is Jon the lone wolf, facing his death?
