Winter, white walkers and everything else is coming. But right now it’s just the Starks.
In case you’ve forgotten (as if), season seven of Game Of Thrones will be released next summer - although nobody knows exactly when the next season will come out yet as they’re still filming. So for now, we’ll have to do with the first teaser.
Aired during Sunday’s Westworld (in the US, don’t worry you haven’t missed it), the clip featured on HBO’s ‘Coming In 2017’ trailer.
When we say it was the first teaser, it is very much a snippet. Three shots to be precise. And they happened so quickly that most people blinked and missed it so it’s taken a few days for a video to surface.
In it we see the remaining Stark siblings – Sansa in what looks like godswood, Jon in Winterfell and most importantly Arya in full cloak riding a horse somewhere cold.
Jon is dramatically turning his head toward someone, possibly Sansa.
Sansa is walking away from a weirwood tree, which are mostly seen in Winterfell so it would make sense she and Jon are together. Walking away from a tree may not seem all that dramatic, but the Starks seem to do quite a bit of thinking under them and she looks pretty determined, so some big decisions may have been made on her part.
Arya looks like she might finally be on her way to her half-brother-cousin and sister. Or she’s on a jaunt to tick off more who wronged her.
Either way, thank you HBO for reminding us how much time we’re going to be spending thinking about wtf is going on and getting ridiculously excited.
