My god, the SPOILERS just aren’t stopping this week. The latest involves a small-scale action scene between three characters, and comes to us via Spanish-language fansite Los Siete Reinos.
First, the usual warning: do not read further if you don’t want to know what happens in Game of Thrones Season 7.
Okay, before we get into the new stuff, let’s establish some things we already know. A week ago, Watchers on the Wall revealed information about a very interesting scene that will happen at some point next year: Davos, Brienne, and Daenerys will all meet at some point in the Dragonpit in King’s Landing. Ignoring all the wild implications of that meet-up for now, let’s extract one pertinent piece of information for the purposes of this post: Davos goes to King’s Landing in Season 7. There are any number of reasons why he might do this. Does Jon send him to investigate what Cersei’s up to? Is he there to suss out what this Dragon Queen lady is all about? Whatever the reason, it looks like he’s going south.
Then, video footage emerged showing Liam Cunningham (Davos) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) shooting a scene together on Muriola Beach in the town of Barrika. And not only that, but reports all but confirm that Muriola Beach—along with a couple of other beachfront locations—will all stand in for the same place: Dragonstone.
Putting all that together, Season 7 will feature a scene that involves Davos and Tyrion on Dragonstone. See them above with a boat. And then, if that wasn’t enough, LSR reported reported that Joe Dempsie (Gendry) was part of the shoot on Muriola Beach, as well. Davos, Tyrion, and Gendry, together first time…
Now that we’ve established all that, let’s tackle the new info. According to LSR, Muriola Beach will stand in for more than Dragonstone. It’ll also double for a beach on Blackwater Bay, in King’s Landing. We’ve seen characters from King’s Landing head down to the city’s beaches a couple of times, although we’re not sure if they’re all the same beach.Cersei waits for Myrcella to arrive on a stony beach in King’s Landing.

Per LSR, a few things will happen in this location:
- Davos will run into some gold cloaks (two, as it ends up) who ask him a series of questions.
- Apparently, Davos’ answers are not satisfactory, because there’s a disagreement.
- The gold cloaks take Davos prisoner.
- But before they get much further, another character comes along and saves Davos from the gold cloaks. LSR think this person is Gendry.
- Also, Tyrion is there, although we’re sure why.
- The three of them escape in a boat, which could be what they’re arriving on Dragonstone on in the shot above.
There’s no photographic evidence of this as yet, but it’s exciting stuff. We’ll bring you more as it breaks.
UPDATE: And now there’s photographic evidence of this. Check out this video. Who know how long it’ll be up?
So Gendry takes both of the gold cloaks down with a hammer. He means business. Or is that Gendry at all? It kind of looks like Podrick. Discuss.
