“Game of Thrones” season 6 has just ended and now begins the months-long waiting period for season 7. With the events of “Winds of Winter” drastically changing the political landscape what can we expect in this most anticipated of TV seasons?
Cersei Lannister is now Queen, Jon Snow is the King in the North, and Queen Daenerys Targaryen is now sailing west to take her place in the Iron Throne. This could mean a three-way battle for dominion over Westeros.
According to The Telegraph, HBO has yet to confirm a release date for Game of Thrones Season 7. It will probably premiere in spring and also a very high chance that the show will continue with an eighth.
In addition, it was also confirmed that the main starring roles will be back along with big fat salary increases, north of half a million bucks per episode. While HBO is breaking the Iron Bank with its pay raise, the final 2 seasons will have sadly have fewer episodes.
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 will most likely feature the Targaryen Invasion and its aftermath. With the Seven Kingdoms firmly under Daenerys Targaryen, the finale will probably set the stage for the war with the White Walkers.
Next season’s outcome is probably a given. Cersei Lannister and Jon Snow are no match for the combined Targaryen-Tyrell-Dorne-Greyjoy alliance. The mad queen has no choice but to fight but the King in the North has the option to bend the knee, and being the humble man he is it will probably be the case.
Hence Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen will probably the ones who will defend The Realm against the White Walkers. If all goes according to plan and the show will only last two more seasons, this will probably be the case.
Of course, there is a chance that if Jon Snow is really proven a Taryagen, as hinted by “Game of Thrones” season 6 finale, the whole dynamics and balance of power will change.
Catch the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premiere this spring only on HBO.
