‘The Queen’s Justice’ Comes to ‘Game of Thrones’ in First Season 7 Synopses
Boy, oh boy – Game of Thrones may not be allowing screeners this year, but the first three Season 7 outings are sure to get Khaleesis cheering. Read for yourself, as HBO releases the first new titles and synopses, bringing “The Queen’s Justice” to Westeros.
As per usual, titles and descriptions are all somewhat subjective, but it’s hard to overlook that not one, but all three titles seemingly apply to Daenerys. There’s her new Dragonstone home, the “Stormborn,” of her namesake, and some serious “Justice” afoot (depending on whether Cersei identifies as a “Queen” these days):
Episode #61: “Dragonstone”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.
Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
Episode #62: “Stormborn”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 23 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.
Written for television by Bryan Cogman; directed by Mark Mylod.
Episode #63: “The Queen’s Justice”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 30 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.
Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.
Worth noting; the synopsis also confirms new cast members Jim Broadbent, Tom Hopper, Megan Parkinson and Ed Sheeran, while Iain Glen is definitely listed among returning cast in his role as Jorah Mormont. Way to find that cure, buddy!
We’ll see for ourselves when Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16 (hitting Comic-Con later that week), so stay tuned.
