Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1
Oh yes, fans! The wait is finally over! No more long and tedious anticipations, no more rising curiosities or growing restlessness. With almost over a thousand fan theories all over the internet, one ought to get piqued. Feels like yesteryear when we had started on our mystical journey to Westeros. Just see how time flies! Enough said, the air date for the upcoming season premier is out and we cannot wait any longer (can we?). Well, it is official. Game of Thrones Season 7 will be officially aired on July 16, 2017, and we are as excited as any other fan is, right now. Not to forget the latest teaser that was released on Game of Thrones’ official YouTube channel. Till date, it has received over 2.5 million views and the internet is going crazy over it. You may find plenty of predictions related to the teaser anywhere on the web or on YouTube (recommended channel: http://gameofthronesseason7full.org/ ).
The 1.5 minutes video/teaser that was released on Game of Thrones’ official YouTube channel was titled Sigils, which features the statues of sigils of various houses in Westeros that get crushed after pressing on each other. We hear a lot of dialogues, both new and old. We get to know a lot about the history of Westeros through these sigils. The dragons getting crushed by the stag tells us about Robert Baratheon’s rebellion against the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, whom we earlier hear shouting, “Burn ‘em all!” Direwolf is seen getting crushed and Roose Bolton’s voice being heard in the background. We even see how Daenerys says that all the other noble houses are just like the spokes on a wheel. Anyway, the biggest symbolism that we see is the crushing of these sigils. We hear Jon saying, “There is only one war that matters.” After that all the sigils start crumbling and we see a mysterious spiral pattern (the same pattern that Jon saw in season 3). As far as it can be said, this mysterious spiral pattern has a lot of importance and is closely related to the White Walkers. Well, speculations will lead to nowhere. Let us wait and see what happens as this great fantasy-drama unfolds. Don’t forget to watch it over here-
The new Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 is Okay, so let us start off with what all has happened in the last episode (Season 6, Episode 10). First, a big congratulations to the cast and crew of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 for winning 12 Emmys last year. Talking of the plot recap, here is a quick sum-up-
- Cersei played her sly bit and got rid of all of her enemies (High Sparrow, Margaery, Loras etc.) by causing a great explosion from the Wildfire in the Sept of Baelor.
- As a result of that, Tommen jumped to his death from his castle’s tower. Thus, Cersei was crowned the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms by Qyburn.
- Jaime, who was sent on an errand (by Cersei), returns to Kings Landing only to find that Cersei has crowned herself as the queen.
- Euron is after Theon and Yara and he wants to kill them. Apart from that, he also intends on marrying Daenerys and eventually ruling Westeros with she by his side.
- Jon has defeated Ramsay and is being hailed as the King in the North. Sansa is with him and Arya, after killing Walder Frey, is also heading towards the North to meet up with Jon and Sansa.
- Bran is about to become the Three-Eyed Raven and yes, the Night King is marching towards the North.
Now, let us see what might happen in the upcoming season-
One of the rather strange things is that, David Bradley, the actor who played Walder Frey has confirmed his return to Season 7, which is quite strange since we all know that he has already met his maker in the previous season (credits go to Arya Stark). Speculations are that Arya might use his face in order to avenge his family’s death from other Freys.
In a chat with a popular entertainment daily, Sophie Turner even hinted towards a darker version of Sansa (that is also quite expected, since she has been through so much and at last, when the time comes, she has to play her part as Lady Stark). Not to forget that she did not even move a bit when Ramsay’s dogs fed on him. She has entered the game and her play is a sly one since she has to guide Jon, and also, she as to get rid of Littlefinger via Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 Watch Online.
Since no proper trailer is out yet, we cannot speculate much about the first episode, but just in order to keep fan theories and other Reddit sprees alive, let us analyse what all might happen on the 16th of July, 2017. Since ‘winter has come’ in Westeros, it will bring a lot of eerie and dark secrets lurking under its snow. As per fan theories, the episode would start off with Daenerys Tarygaryen, who is sailing towards Westeros. With a huge fleet and an even bigger army, she is all set to land in Westeros. Theories suggest that she will land in the Iron Islands, and that is massacre since Euron resides over there and we all know that he is a very dangerous person (if we are to go as per the books, then, he is the most badass person in Westeros). Talking of the King’s Landing, Cersei rules over there as the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. She has achieved what she had desired (the reason why she married Robert Baratheon). She has got the ghastly figure of the Mountain, along with a loyal army, and Qyburn. The only thing she might lose is her incestuous brother (or lover?), Jaime. When Jaime returned after completing the job that she gave to him, he noticed all the mishaps and other tumult that took place in King’s Landing. He surely would have broken when he would’ve heard about the death of Tommen. That grief changed to anger when he saw Cersei being crowned as the queen of Westeros. Well, we might expect our ‘Kingslayer’ to become the next ‘Queenslayer’ soon (keeping the speculations alive). Sadly though, if Jaime kills the love of his life, then there will be no human left in him. Just a cringe worthy killer left with nothing to lose. About that, what we believe is that if Jaime kills Cersei, he too will most likely get killed by her guard, the beasty Gregor Clegane.
Bloggers and many Reddit users are captioning their theories about Cersei as, Cersei, Queen of the Three Kingdoms, Not Long May She Reign. Which is quite apt, since there are not many kingdoms that (now) come under the King’s rule. Plenty of other kingdoms have allied with Jon Snow and they regard him as the King in the North. Also, as said before, Jaime will be responsible for the death of Cersei.
Daenerys is surely going to bring a lot of stuff to Westeros. Most of the people already know about it. She is already en route to Westeros. And as per her intentions, she is all set to overthrow the current ruler and claim her heritage to the Iron Throne. That’s where the twist lies. Jon Snow, as we all know, in not a bastard after all. He is very much a Targaryen (son of Rhaeghar). Thus, his claim over the throne is more than Daenerys’. Theories suggest that both of them from Game of Thrones Season 7 Watch Online might face each other at some point (since the book is titled, A Song of Ice and Fire). As per the leaked photographs, they will meet eventually.
The poster for the 7th season is terrific. It has ice and fire both. Anyway, just seven episodes? Isn’t that less? Well, it is. But since the directors have decided that they will limit the remaining part of the series to mere 13 episodes, all that can be said is that, not much is left of this incredible journey. And, not to forget, want to watch GoT? Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 watch online. Watch it here! Though it may not happen at the earliest, fans are even suggesting a possible Cleganebowl to take place in Westeros. Well, Sandor Clegane was brought back form the dead for a reason, right? He is more badass than before (remembering the scene where he chopped the man off with just a wood-cutting axe). That would surely be a sight to watch, since both the brothers will face each other after such a long wait.
Season 7 will be a time for the Stark girls. Both Arya and Sansa will rise to power (once again). As we have already witnessed how Sansa was involved in Jon’s victory over Ramsay, Arya too is all set to go and meet Jon. One has become a witty (rather, sly) person who clearly understands the politics of Westeros. Also, since she is now indebted to Petyr Baelish, and he is manipulating her mind to gain supremacy over the North and beyond. But, we know Sansa is not the old simple woman she was before. She has gone through a lot and that has changed her drastically. Talking about Arya, she has managed to kill Walder Frey and is heading towards the north. That will be a sight for sore eyes as both the Stark girls will unite after season one – Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 Watch Online
Bran Stark will also play a crucial role in making the history of Westeros. Currently, he is the only person in entire Westeros who knows the true parentage of Jon Snow. Since he is the Three-Eyed Raven now, his involvement in the Great War will be critical. Both Bran and Meera have been cursed by the White Walker magic. Thus, they are more likely to be affected by the dead. Since the Walkers are almost near the wall, Bran will play a crucial role in delaying their arrival in Westeros. That said, Castle Black will have a hard time with the dead on the brink of their raid. The Night’s Watch will have to face a hard time stopping the White Walkers (most likely to fail defending themselves).
Everywhere, people are asking, will there be a song of ice and fire? Well, let’s arrange it this way; the White Walkers’ entry into Westeros is inevitable, and out of the many daring people, merely Jon is capable enough of fighting them. Daenerys, on the other hand, has got other errands to complete (since she wants to rise to power). But anyway, with her army of the Unsullied, Daario, Tyrion, Varys, and of course, her dragons will give quite a hard time to the dead. That’s probably when one of her dragons will die (according to plenty of fan theories). – Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 Watch Online
There is also a theory that states that Jon and Tyrion will become the best of friends and later on it might be revealed that Tyrion, too, is a Targaryen (no wonder Tywin hated him so much). Anyway, Reddit users also suggest that Tyrion will bring forward a marriage proposal of Jon and Daenerys. All that can be said here is that, if they team up, then they will be the strongest force in Westeros and it will be very difficult to defeat them. But the main question that lies here is that who will rule Westeros? Well, let’s not speculate anything and watch it ourselves. So, Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 watch online.

That said, let us see how the makers bring this fantasy-drama to an end. Whether the end be as compelling as the starting was? For more, tune into the worldwide premier of Game of Thrones Season 7 on the 16th of July, 2017. Valar Morghulis! ☺
