Game of Thrones Season 7 isn’t quite under the same secrecy veil as last year, but isn’t about to plant major spoilers with its first photos, either. Nonetheless, at least one shot teases a major prophecy coming to the forefront, and a mad Game of Thrones fan naturally transcribed it for you.

Those celebrating 420 won’t be the only ones blowing smoke today. Game of Thrones Season 7 looks ready to burn it all down in our first official photos from the July premiere, and no ice block will stand in our way this time.
There are a few great characters in history whose very name strikes fear into the hearts of men. Roose Bolton is one of these, Game of Thrones’ ruthless turncloak traitor whose lust for power engineered the Red Wedding and brought almost an entire House to their deaths. Since Bolton’s — and, as such, actor Michael McElhatton’s — time on the show has ended, he’s back to finding another franchise to join up with. And what better film to start with than a little indie picture called Justice League?
Game of Thrones Season 7 has us deeper in the dark than ever, but there may yet be corners of George R.R. Martin’s books to explore. Sherlock star Mark Gatiss confirms that Braavos’ Iron Bank-er Tycho Nestoris will have a role in Season 7, and possibly beyond.
It’s difficult to say when Game of Thrones might finally thaw some Season 7 footage out of the ice block, but we needn’t wait so long to see our favorite characters again. Check out some of the new Season 7 looks in a bizarre HBO promo for all the network’s stars.
Yesterday brought the very first teaser for Game of Thrones Season 7, which was especially exciting after HBO forced us to watch a block of ice melt for an hour. It featured Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), and Cersei (Lena Headey) all making their way towards their respective thrones. It was an awesome little tease, but the music in the trailer? Not the greatest.
No longer must Game of Thrones fans stare at a block of ice for a CG teaser: Season 7 is here! See Cersei, Daenerys and Jon Snow get some fresh threads in a new “Long Walk” teaser for the July premiere, complete with chilly twist.
Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Game of Thrones’ Stannis Baratheon went out in particularly Stannis-fashion; committed to a losing battle, and accepting Brienne would do her “duty” to put him down. That said, a new script page making the rounds shows a very different end for the would-be King, one filled with regret.
Game of Thrones understandably has to build hype year after year, especially when a penultimate season keeps fans waiting later than usual. Bless their hearts, HBO even tried to make Season 7’s premiere reveal special with a giant block of ice, though star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says producers found the failed stunt “embarrassing.”
Game of Thrones fans never lack for dragon appreciation, but there are diminishing returns to their escalation in size, and difficulty to portray onscreen. Leave it to Season 7 to make them even bigger, now estimating Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal to be the size of commercial jets.
