If Season 7 of Game of Thrones was entirely made of up of a montage of different battles that are part of the bigger “great war”, I don’t know that fans would complain, especially after we’ve seen what the showrunners are capable of in the “Battle of the Bastards” in terms of epic scope, scale, and emotion.
But in a show that’s already grim, things are definitely getting grimmer. If you’ve been postponing making a decision about who you actually support among the claimants to the Iron Throne, seems like your time is up this season.
The official trailer really accentuates that feeling, too, presenting each claimant and party in neutral terms, with each desiring to fight and survive to achieve their goal. Some parties are wiser and urge unity and alliance, but most don’t.
Which means it’s going to get very bloody.
Game of Thrones Season 7 starts airing on HBO on July 16th, 2017 and “The Great War is here”, according to Jon Snow.
