Game of Thrones season 7 episode 2 preview: “Stormborn”


Behold the trailer for the second episode of Game of Thrones season 7, “Stormborn.”

Game of Thrones returned to our lives last week, kicking off a bloody season 7 with the massacre of House Frey at the hands of young Arya Stark. HBO also treated us to a whirlwind tour of the monarchs of Westeros, as we saw Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister and the newly returned Daenerys Targaryen all begin to make plans for the wars to come. After the episode aired, HBO gave us a quick peek at next week’s episode, “Stormborn.” Gaze upon its wonder.

Based on Lord Royce’s comment about not being able to trust a Targaryen (directed to a Targaryen btw), we can assume Dany’s arrival on Dragonstone has become known in the North. If Jon has received Samwell’s note from last week, he might head be heading to Dragonstone given that he considers dragonglass more “valuable than gold.” Either way, do they ever leave the great hall in Winterfell?

Other highlights include a rather dire-looking-wolf, confronting Arya in the Riverlands. Could that be Nymeria? Arya’s long lost direwolf?

Elsewhere, we see Littlefinger slammed up against a wall, which should make many a fan happy. We also see Ellaria Sand and Yara Greyjoy getting kissy, in between the wars to come. Good for them. There are also multiple shots of Dany turning slowly for the camera. What could that mean we wonder?
