A couple of weeks ago, a big SPOILER broke about Daenerys’ role in Game of Thrones Season 7. Today, the Season 7 spoiler fest continues, but first, let’s see what new cast members have arrived in Belfast.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) walks the streets of Belfast. His onscreen brother Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) is also in town:
This is far clearer than the last picture we got of Dinklage.
Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) is in town, no doubt up to no good. On a related note…
Allen and Whelan play Theon and Yara Greyjoy respectively.
The whole family’s here!
That would be Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand) and Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Tyene Sand).
And finally, the big kahuna herself:
Long may she reign.
Okay, now that we’ve done that, it’s time to begin SPOILERS. Beware.
Fansite Watchers on the Wall brings us a report. Apparently, filming this week centered around the Greyjoys. Specifically, it involved Theon and Yara “engaging in battle at sea,” probably with their uncle. As it ends up, Season 7 will be a busy year for Euron. According to the site, next year he will:
- Team up with Cersei.
- Take either Theon or Yara prisoner.
- Kill at least one of the Sand Snakes.
Fans may not spend much time weeping for the Sand Snakes, but these are big developments, if not entirely unexpected. We’ve suspected that Cersei and Euron may team up for a while now. After all, they’ll need all the help they can get if they’re going to battle Daenerys and her sizable, dragon-augmented army.
The spoilers aren’t complete, which is probably for the best. For example, when Theon and Yara fight Euron at sea (assuming that’s who they’re fighting, which seems likely), is Daenerys with them? Might the parties split up? It’s hard to keep a fleet that size together for the entirety of such a lengthy journey, and/or they might decide to divide their forces to take over different areas of Westeros simultaneously. Perhaps the Greyjoys head for the Iron Islands with some borrowed soldiers while Dany makes for King’s Landing? The opportunities for speculation are endless.
