Game Of Thrones returned to screens last month for Season 7, and in arguably its most action-packed season yet, the HBO drama has seen Daenerys arrive in Westeros, Cersei form an alliance with the Greyjoys, and Jon Snow come face-to-face with the Mother of Dragons.
The latest episode of #GameOfThrones shocked viewers as Jon Snow and his team were stranded beyond the Wall and overpowered by the army of the dead. Thankfully, Daenerys and her beloved dragons arrived at the scene and rescued the men, but she lost one of her "children" when the villainous Night King killed Viserion.
With Jon bending the knee for Daenerys, we're heading into what will likely be the biggest season finale #GoT has ever produced, and #HBO has released some first look photos to tide us over until Sunday night. Check them out below.
Cersei And Jaime Face Off
The season finale will see Jon and Daenerys arrive in King's Landing to prove to Cersei that the White Walkers are real. To do so, they plan on unveiling the wight that they kidnapped last week. However, before Cersei's company arrives in King's Landing, it appears that the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms will have to deal with another confrontation as she faces off with her beloved brother and lover, Jaime.
Last time these two were on screen together, Cersei told Jaime that she was pregnant, explaining that — unlike before with Tommen, Mycella and Joffrey — everyone will know that he is the father of their baby. As longtime GoT viewers will know, this is everything that Jaime could've hoped for, but before he could let this information sink in, Cersei told him to never betray her again. Jaime hugged his sister but we could tell that he was worried; the power has gone to her head.
While we've had no confirmation yet, we're pretty sure that Cersei is lying about her pregnancy. In addition to the fact that Cersei has proven herself to be a compulsive liar, the prophecy back in Season 5 confirmed that the character would only have three children. With that in mind, perhaps Jaime will discover the truth in the season finale and confront Cersei before she meets with Daenerys.
If this does come to pass, the Kingslayer had better be careful about what he says to the queen because, as we can see in the image above, a watchful undead Gregor Clegane is nearby.
Tyrion And Jon Meet With Cersei, But Where Is Daenerys?
After seasons of waiting, Cersei Lannister will finally come face-to-face with Daenerys Targaryen in this week's season finale of Game Of Thrones. Or will she?
The new photos from Sunday's episode show Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister approaching the Queen of Westeros — in an attempt to make peace for the sake of the realm — but Dany seems to be absent from the meeting. Additionally, Daenerys was also absent from the the trailer for the season finale, suggesting that the Mother of Dragons does not attend this meeting.
Or, in typical Daenerys style, perhaps the Dragon Queen has a plan up her stylish sleeve and will be waiting in the, ahem, wings with Drogon for when Cersei declines their offer. If Cersei does choose to ignore the threat, then perhaps Dany will fly into action and show Cersei what a dragon looks like in real life. Remember, the prophecy also stated that Cersei would only be queen "for a time" before a "younger, more beautiful" queen comes along to take everything that Cersei has. Could this be the episode in which it comes to pass?
Redgardless of the outcome, we can't see Cersei siding with her enemies even if they are telling the truth, so chances are there will be an altercation. Moreover, we can't see Cersei willing to let Tyrion go free considering how much she despises him, so the Dothraki and the dragons will likely have to intervene. I don't know about you, but I'm really hoping that Cersei will come face-to-face with a dragon.
The last time Bronn and Jaime saw the Mother of Dragons, they were nearly roasted alive. To be fair, they did dispose of all of Dany's allies, so it's only fair that she got a little revenge — and, if we're being honest, we still haven't forgiven Bronn for shooting Drogon. Either way, it appears that both Bronn and Jaime are present at Cersei's meeting with Dany and Jon ... but will Jaime agree with his sister's decisions on what to do about the wights?
What Will Become Of Theon?
Theon has been on a bit of rough ride the last couple of years, and things keep getting worse for the Iron-born warrior. Simply put, he can't seem to get a break. This season, Theon abandoned his sister, leaving her to get kidnapped by the villainous Uncle Euron.
Before long, Theon sailed back to Dragonstone to ask Daenerys for help in recovering his sister. However, when Theon arrived he was confronted by Jon. The two hadn't seen each other in years, and Jon was still understandably upset about how Theon massacred people at Winterfell several years ago.
The new photo above shows Theon, still at Dragonstone. We don't know what he's up to or who he's staring at, but there's one question that we hope to have answered: Will he attempt to rescue his sister and redeem himself? Let's hope so.
It seems like yesterday that Season 7 premiered, but due to the shorter season, our watch is ending sooner than we'd hoped. As Cersei comes face-to-face with her enemies, things are set to get much worse for Jon and Daenerys ... but with the threat of the threat of the White Walkers looming over the realm, who knows what will happen when the credits roll on Game Of Thrones Season 7? One thing's for sure: We can't wait to find out.
Game Of Thrones airs Sundays on HBO.
