By now, you know that Game of Thrones is arriving a little later than usual. But, judging by the show’s newest promo, the wait will very much be worth it. I get chills just thinking about it.
The promo doesn’t give us much. Cersei, Jon Snow, and Daenerys are all seen claiming seats in some of the most powerful homes across Westeros; Cersei is on the Iron Throne, while Jon takes a seat in Winterfell. Daenerys, meanwhile, appears to sit on Dragonstone, which is the former Targaryen home.
So, the chess pieces are being put into place. But sitting on a chair won’t do much once the Great War gets underway. As the final shot in the teaser shows, the White Walkers are coming, which should scare the living crap out of everyone and everything.
We’re only getting two more seasons
Not only is this the penultimate season of Game of Thrones, but there aren’t as many episodes left as you’d think. Typically, each season of the show is roughly ten episodes, but season seven will only be seven episodes long. And the final season will be even shorter.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16.
