In a single swift move, she has eradicated nearly all of her enemies, rivals, and obstructions; Tyrion Lannister serves at her side as Hand of the Queen, though at the cost of two of her advisors: Ser Jorah Mormont, whom Daenerys has delivered to find a cure for his spreading greyscale disease, and Daario Naharis, her lover whom Daenerys has ordered to stay behind with the next Sons (on Tyrion’s advice) so that she may pursue a potential marriage alliance to aid her in her campaign. After a summer lasting almost ten years, the words of House Stark have finally become reality once again: cold weather is here. Queen Margaery Tyrell, Lord Mace Tyrell, Ser Loras Tyrell, Cersei’s uncle Ser Kevan Lannister, Grand Maester Pycelle, the High Sparrow, and most of – if not all – members of the Faith Militant were killed when the Great Sept of Baelor was destroyed using large amounts of wildfire, an event orchestrated by Cersei. Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen are all dead, Tommen having taken his own life briefly after the Sept’s destruction. Edmure’s uncle, Brynden “The Blackfish” Tully, is dead, having chosen to fight to the death rather than surrender. In desperation, and in fear for his or her lives, Theon and Yara have stolen a hundred ships from the Iron Fleet. She has crowned herself the undisputed Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, with Qyburn as her Hand and the undead knight Ser Gregor Clegane at her side. It is the beginning of the end. They have managed to secure an alliance between House Targaryen and House Greyjoy to greatly help Daenerys retake the Iron Throne and overthrow Euron in return for the Iron Islands’ independence. Also, Sandor “The Hound” Clegane has survived his brutal fight with Brienne of Tarth and attempted to build a new, humble life, but has been dragged back into conflict by the Brotherhood Without Banners, who intend to head north to fight in the war that is coming. It has made Cersei all the more determined to crush her enemies once and for all, but the number of her enemies has just increased exponentially. In Dorne, Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes have staged a coup; Arya Stark, despite nearly being killed by the Waif and eventually overcoming the assassin in single combat, has completed her training as a Faceless Man in the Free City of Braavos. After not quite four decades of serving as the power behind the throne, House Lannister has finally end up being the new royal house. But with Sam’s theft of his family’s ancestral Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane, he has undoubtedly incurred the immense wrath of his father, Randyll Tarly, who’ll now likely seek retribution, while the absence House Tyrell’s armies will have also left the Reach open to coming outside attacks, so Samwell must use the sword in his studies and unearth the secrets behind Valyrian steel for the coming battle against the dead, before all is lost. Lady Olenna Tyrell, herself now a target of Cersei as she is now the only surviving Tyrell, has met with Ellaria and the Sand Snakes, a gathering facilitated by Varys. Their victory was also due in large part to the support from the knights of the Vale, the elite soldiers of House Arryn, the lords of the Vale, thanks to Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish. Lord Edmure Tully, who was simply held hostage by the Freys ever since the Red Wedding, ordered the Tully garrison to stand down for the sake of his wife and child, whom Jaime had violently threatened if Edmure refused to cooperate. There, Bran must prepare for the arrival of the Night King, who at all costs must be defeated before Westeros can imagine yet another spring. Most of the realm is either in open rebellion against the Iron Throne or has fallen right out of her allies’ control, leaving Cersei effectively as the Queen of King’s Landing and the lands owned by the Lannisters. Euron, but has ordered the construction of an even bigger fleet to begin his own invasions, seek out new alliances and destroy all who might stand in his method of taking the Seven Kingdoms for himself. Given that Littlefinger was instrumental in the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings (by conspiring with Lysa Arryn to murder Jon Arryn, pit the Starks and Lannisters against one another, and throw Westeros in to complete chaos), and any particular one of his initial goals was to become the new Warden of the North, Jon’s ascension to King in the North is now a significant obstacle in his master plan, setting the stage for a looming conflict between Jon and Littlefinger, the latter already having sewn seeds of distrust in Sansa towards Jon. Also aiding Daenerys will be the Dornish and the Tyrells, the rulers of the Reach. However, Cersei continues to be haunted by the prophecy she was told during her childhood, which claimed that the deaths of her three (future) kids would predate her own;

In the Reach, after navigating various obstacles, Samwell Tarly, Gilly, and her son have finally reached the Citadel in Oldtown, where Sam intends to teach as a maester to displace the deceased Maester Aemon of the Night’s Watch, hoping to gain some insight into the White Walkers and how to defeat them. Though she now sits on the Iron Throne, she’s effectively undone all of Tywin Lannister’s efforts to ensure that his family stay in power as her actions have certainly earned her the hatred of all of Westeros. On the Iron Islands, King Balon Greyjoy is dead, having been murdered by his psychopathic younger brother, Euron Greyjoy. However, Euron has claimed and won the Salt Throne by promising an alliance with Daenerys Targaryen, which he’ll use to conquer the Seven Kingdoms. In the Riverlands, the last bastion of Robb Stark’s independent Northern-Riverland kingdom, Riverrun, has fallen to House Lannister and House Frey in a siege led by Ser Jaime Lannister. Across the Narrow Sea, having at last defeated the slave masters and the Sons of the Harpy, Queen Daenerys Targaryen has finally set sail for Westeros. Unknown to Ellaria, however, is that Tyrion Lannister, Myrcella’s uncle, is now serving as Daenerys’s Hand of the Queen, and will likely demand justice against the Sands for murdering his beloved niece in cold blood. With Cersei declaring war against the Sands for their murder of her daughter Myrcella, Ellaria has turned to Daenerys and her loyalists to simply help bring down the Lannisters. The attempt failed, and they were only barely able to escape when the castle fell.

In the North, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark, aided by Ser Davos Seaworth, Tormund Giantsbane, and Lady Lyanna Mormont, have finally defeated Ramsay Bolton and reclaimed Winterfell following a spectacular battle. Although skeptical of their motives (and wary that they essentially murdered their own family to seize power), grief-stricken and incensed by the deaths of her son, grandson, and granddaughter, Olenna pledges House Tyrell’s forces to Daenerys in the hope of revenge for her slain family, no longer caring about her own survival.The scene where Arya Stark was reunited with Nymeria was filmed in Banff National Park, Canada. Production were only available in the Basque country, including Itzurun Beach in Zumaia (as Dragonstone), Muriola Beach in Barrika (as the shores of Blackwater Bay) and San Juan de Gaztelugatxe in Bermeo (as Dragonstone), before moving to Andalusia, where they used the Roman Ruins of Italica in Santiponce (as King’s Landing), Las Atarazanas (also known as the Royal Dockyards) in Seville (as King’s Landing) and Castillo de Almod¨®var del R¨ªo (as Highgarden & Casterly Rock). Each episode had a physically longer runtime than in prior seasons: the early in the day seasons averaged out at around 54 to 56 minutes per episode, but episodes in Season 7 average out at around 63 minutes per episode. The showrunners said they did this because as the story reaches its climax, every episode will be massive in scale. Meanwhile, location shooting has taken place at the following locations so far: the Winterfell occur Moneyglass, the Saintfield Estate (for scenes in the Winterfell Godswood) as well as Ballintoy (previously Pyke), Murlough Bay (previously The Stormlands), and Fair Head in Country Antrim. There is a physically finite amount of time that they can film each year, however, and gigantic action scenes on the scale of “Hardhome” simply take longer to film when compared to a setup episode of mostly dialogue in interior sets like “The Climb” or “The Gift”, and so on. This was due mainly to the desire to accurately depict the winter that now grips Westeros.In Northern Ireland, production began in August 2016. Season 7’s total runtime was 7 hours, 18 minutes – compared to the 9 hours, fifteen minutes that prior seasons averaged. Interior shooting returned to the show’s headquarters, the Paint Hall Studios in Belfast as well as Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge. B. In Spain, filming happened from late October through December at various locations. Meanwhile, filming had also started in the province of C¨¢ceres at Trujillo Castle (as Casterly Rock & King’s Landing), before commencing a nearly month long shoot at Las Bre?as and Barrueco de Arriba in Malpartida (as the Reach). The Dark Hedges in Stranocum, which were previously featured in Season 2, will also return to stand set for the Kingsroad. Producers David Benioff and D. Because of this, filming took a scheduled pause in December 2016, with a scheduled complete wrap date in February 2017. Weiss confirmed that season seven would be both filmed and released later than past seasons of Game of Thrones. Filming took place at the glaciers of J?kuls¨¢rl¨®n and Sv¨ªnafellsj?kull, serving as locations beyond the Wall, before moving to the Black Sand Beach of
Although House Frey has reclaimed Riverrun, Lord Walder Frey can be dead. Following an attack which claims the lives of the Three-Eyed Raven, Hodor, and seemingly the last of the Children of the Forest, Bran and Meera Reed have been rescued by Bran’s undead uncle, Benjen Stark, and taken back to the Wall. Balon’s son, Theon, returned to the Iron Islands after helping Sansa Stark escape from Ramsay Bolton and endorsed his elder sister, Yara, as their father’s successor at the subsequent Kingsmoot.For specific runtimes, the first and second episodes of the season have a runtime of 59 minutes each, the third episode has a runtime of 63 minutes, the fourth episode has a runtime of 50 minutes, the fifth episode has a runtime of 59 minutes, the sixth episode has a runtime of 70 minutes, and the seventh and final episode has a runtime of 80 minutes. Season 7 has a shorter episode count than past seasons: seven instead of ten. There was some speculation when the seven episode format was first announced that the showrunners were simply chopping up the normal over all runtime of the season in to seven parts because those were the natural “chapter breaks” of the story, but Benioff and Weiss later waved this aside, reiterating that the entire point of filming fewer episodes than in the past was because the scale of each has been drastically increased, straining the limits of how much they can film in a single year. Production in Spain ended in the Old Town of C¨¢ceres (as King’s Landing & Oldtown) mid-December. Taken altogether, therefore, while there are only seven episodes in Season 7, due to their increased individual lengths, there is enough extra runtime to make up for an entire eighth episode (of the regular length from prior seasons). Similar to last season, production only returned to Croatia for a brief shoot in Dubrovnik (as King’s Landing) mid-December Finally, for the first time since the fourth season, production came ultimately back to Iceland in January.
Beyond the Wall, Bran Stark has been trained in his power of greensight under the tutelage of the Three-Eyed Raven and has learned some devastating secrets, specifically the origin of the White Walkers and the real parentage of his believed half-brother, Jon Snow: Jon is the son of Lyanna Stark and Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, which would make him the nephew and a rival claimant to Daenerys Targaryen for the Iron Throne. With sailors and soldiers loyal to them, they have traveled to Meereen and sought out Daenerys’s help first. Brienne of Tarth and her squire, Podrick Payne, had traveled to Riverrun in an attempt to recruit the Blackfish to assist Sansa Stark in reclaiming Winterfell from House Bolton. they have murdered Prince Doran Martell and his heir, Trystane, and taken control of Dorne in retaliation for Doran’s refusal to wage war against House Lannister after the brutal death of his younger brother Prince Oberyn at the hands of Ser Gregor, who also murdered their sister Princess Elia and her two young kids, Princess Rhaenys and Prince Aegon. Unknown to Daenerys, nevertheless , there is already somebody over the Narrow Sea who might easily have a stronger claim to the Targaryen monarchy than she does, and who may possibly prove to become her most valuable ally or her greatest enemy yet.
In King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister has finally seized the power that she has craved for many years. She has acquired an army consisting of the Unsullied, the Dothraki, and troops from House Greyjoy, House Tyrell, and Dorne. The Red Priestess Melisandre, meanwhile, has been dismissed from Jon’s service following the discovery of her role in Shireen Baratheon’s death, along with for the burning of countless innocent people as sacrifices to the Lord of Light during her service to Stannis Baratheon, stripping Jon of easily one of is own most valuable advisers, and is currently heading south to locations unknown. Even though House Bolton is now extinct following Ramsay’s brutal execution, the future of House Stark is left involved: with Robb and Rickon dead, and Bran believed dead as well, the Northern and Vale lords have turned to Jon and named him the new King in the North, while Sansa has rejected Littlefinger’s proposal to help him take the Iron Throne and become his queen. With her original mission clearly back in focus, she has abandoned the Order and returned to Westeros to cross more names off of her list of vengeance, starting with Walder Frey, the last surviving orchestrator of the Red Wedding that claimed the lives of her mother, brother, and pregnant sister-in-law, at the same time butchering Walder’s two most prominent sons, Lothar Frey and Walder Rivers who also helped carry out the massacre, and leaving the rule of the Riverlands in unknown hands.
