New Game of Thrones Episode Descriptions Tease Explosive Season 7 Start

2 minute read

Warning: This post contains spoilers for season seven of Game of Thrones.

With the exception of two action-packed trailers, HBO hasn’t given fans too many clues about the trajectory of Game of Thrones‘ seventh season. However, on Friday afternoon, the network released titles and descriptions for the season’s first three episodes, fueling speculation over what’s to come in Westeros now that winter has finally arrived.

Dubbed “Dragonstone,” “Stormborn” and “The Queen’s Justice,” the descriptions read as follows:

Episode #61: Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.

Episode #62: Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.

Episode #63: Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.

Although these details are vague, it seems as though the new season will kick off with a bang as Daenerys sets up shop at House Tagaryen’s ancestral seat of Dragonstone, Jon makes moves as the new King in the North and Cersei seeks an alliance — perhaps with Euron Greyjoy.

As for the mysterious gift Cersei intends to return in episode three, we have a feeling it won’t be as literal as it sounds.

Season seven of Game of Thrones premieres July 16 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
