HBO just released the first official images from the hotly anticipated season seven of “Game of Thrones,” and they look awesome. But also very, very dark.
Winter is definitely here, after six whole seasons of everyone being told it was coming. Every character is bundled up in furs and coats and dressed in black and other dark colours. Dark times are coming, and it is very clear that no one is safe.
The images don’t tell us a lot. But with a closer look, some of them do inform us about where characters are geographically, and suggest whom they’re with and where they’re headed.
It’s all we have until “Game of Thrones” season seven premieres on July 16, or at least until we get a full-length trailer.
Here are the 15 first official images from season seven of “Game of Thrones”:
Looks like Dany and her really, really big crew have safely made it to Westeros. Looks like they're staring at something -- or someone -- important. This is probably Dragonstone, the original home of the Targaryens.
He's looking sharp but also very tired as Hand of the Queen.
And it is probably the same thing Tyrion is looking at.
The last time we saw him, he was in Dorne, where it is hot. This outfit suggests he is definitely not on the beach anymore.
She appears to be in the same room as Varys, and it looks like the throne at Dragonstone is behind her.
She deserves to sit down and enjoy a meal before getting to the next name on her kill list. It looks like she's at an inn in Westeros. But where she's headed is more interesting than where she is: Is she going north to Winterfell, or is she heading to King's Landing to cross Cersei off the list?
The King in the North has a lot to brood about these days.
He's all bundled up, which sugggests he might be in the North, and it looks like he's still with the Brotherhood Without Banners. We hope he reunites with Arya on his journey.
Although Littlefinger and the Knights of the Vale helped win back Winterfell at the Battle of the Bastards, Sansa is clearly still not letting Littlefinger get away with handing her over to the Boltons.
Comedic relief will be absoultey necessary in season seven.
And hopefully they're close. Bran's siblings could really use his help down in Winterfell.
Relationship goals! At first glance, Gilly actually looks like Margaery. RIP.
He's looking dapper in the Stark colours, sitting in front of the toasty fireplace at Winterfell.
Is she telling Davos what to do? Probably. She is awesome.
Cersei looks satisfied with her position on the Iron Throne, but Jaime kind of looks like he just found out his dog died.
Whatever they're looking at, it's pretty clear that Jaime is not too pleased with his twin siter/lover. How far will she have to go before he turns on her for good?
