It’s that time of year again, when Game of Thrones production spills all manner of secrets to prying eyes, and Season 7 may yet answer some big questions leftover from last year. New reports tease some shocking confrontations for the Greyjoys, and potentially even our first notable death.

Murder, she wrote, but not in Westeros. Despite a widely-circulating Game of Thrones rumor suggesting the revered Angela Lansbury would appear in in Season 7 of the HBO fantasy drama, consider the cameo officially debunked.
Game of Thrones Season 6 has come and gone, long-since making moot any questions of George R.R. Martin speeding out The Winds of Winter to avoid spoilers, but there may at last be hope in sight. Another reported leak places Winds of Winter with an early 2017 release, at least beating Season 7 to the punch.
As if the major casting of Jim Broadbent weren’t enough of a clue, Game of Thrones is finally ready to go before cameras for Season 7. Production has officially begun, but how long until those ever-telling set photos start popping up online? Should we get the #JonSnowStillLives ready?
Game of Thrones Season 7 may prove even less opaque than the ultra-secrecy of Season 6, but its British actor bingo remains on point. Harry Potter star Jim Broadbent has joined Season 7 in a major role, so put on your speculating tin foil!
Even at a reduced episode order, Game of Thrones Season 7 brings with it the likelihood of even more character connections than the prior year. We know travel times are no longer a concern, but a new Season 7 production report places a surprising figure within striking distance of King’s Landing.
By now, Game of Thrones stars have gotten pretty good at turning the hype machine for upcoming episodes, and Season 7 is no exception. Maisie Williams is already proclaiming Season 7 as the year Game of Thrones “gets REAL,” while poor Kit Harington appears to have been denied scripts. Still exciting, though!
Game of Thrones fans have generally presumed that George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” refers to an inevitable pairing between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, something the HBO adaptation has seemingly made clear with a host of parallel imagery. At least one major Season 6 reflection wasn’t intentional, however, as Kit Harington calls it a “happy accident.”
No one cheers on Game of Thrones like Jason Momoa, but the erstwhile Khal Drogo has now gone to some telling lengths to support his former co-stars. New photos place Momoa with his Game of Thrones family in Ireland, so might Drogo be back from the Night Lands once more?
Any and all of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s books are essentially out the window by Season 7, but that shouldn’t stop rabid fans from casing every minor detail. To wit, the first Season 7 casting calls have gone out, so let’s speculate wildly about a priest! And a warrior! Oh, and there’s a guard! Maybe a lovely lady?
