The Queen has arrived.
“Game of Thrones” fans got more glimpses at the upcoming Season 7 thanks to some newly released photos from HBO. The network shared 17 images with international media this week, showing snapshots of everyone’s favorite characters.
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is finally back on the shores of Westeros for the first time after fleeing in the wake of her father’s, the Mad King’s, death.
“Right now, I’m sort of feeling — with her — optimistic,” Clarke told the Belfast Telegraph. “She’ll probably need some help, though. I’ll definitely be disappointed if she doesn’t make it. I think that there was always that idea that she would know where she was going to, but the reality is frightening. I mean, I always believed that Dany had the highest of hopes for what kind of impact she could leave on this world. She is continuously reaching for purest level of rulership — is that a word? I just made it up.”
Meanwhile, the Starks are in the snowy North. Fans can see Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) in the snow and Jon (Kit Harington) looking pensive. The undying Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) appears to be near Winterfell, as well, riding alongside Sandor “The Hound” Clegane (Rory McCann).
Sam (John Bradley) and Gilly (Hannah Murray) are getting to studying up at the Citadel.
