HBO dropped an all-new trailer for Game of Thrones season 7, episodes 2 and 3, at today’s San Diego Comic-Con, and we’ve got some questions that need answering after watching it.

You’ve no doubt heard the usual tagline(s) associated with Game of Thrones season 7: “Winter is Here,” “Winter Came,” “Screw that Ed Sheeran guy he ruined my whole Game of Thrones experience because I’m an unreasonable neckbeard who can’t be bothered to like nice things.” Okay, so that last one seemed to be the rallying cry for every nerd-raging fan, last week, but the first two are definitely a part of the show.

Since Game of Thrones season 7 started so late this year, it happened to coincide with the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, and wouldn’t you know it, HBO dropped an epic trailer for the next two episodes of the season, to celebrate the event. Here’s a refresher:

Episode 2 is titled “Stormborn,” and as you can see, everyone is talking about Daenerys Targaryen. Episode 3 is titled “The Queen’s Mercy,” and it also appears as if we’ll be spending a lot of time with the Mother of Dragons. Let’s get right into the five questions we have after watching this trailer.

1. Will Randyl and Dickon Tarly join Cersei Lannister?

We met Samwell Tarly’s family is season 6, when he stopped by his ancestral home of Horn Hill. There, we were introduced to his lovely mother and sister, along with his dumb but affable brother Dickon, and his real dick of a father, Randyl.

As you may recall, Sam absconded with House Tarly’s Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane, on his way out in the middle of the night. Many fans wondered then if Randyl would follow his son to the Citadel to retrieve the sword.

The question now is: Would Randly Tarly align House Tarly with Cersei Lannister? Before season 7, House Tarly served House Tyrell. When Robert Baratheon rose up and usurped the Iron Throne from the Mad King — Aerys Targaryen — House Tarly remained loyal to the Targaryens. However, seeing Randyl and Dickon Tarly in King’s Landing, being pitched an offer from Cersei, makes us wonder if they will switch sides.
