This Sunday, ice meets fire.
Doing good on all that foreshadowing, and building on the momentum established in last week’s “Stormborn,” Game of Thrones‘ latest episode will see Kit Harington’s Jon Snow journey south to meet with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) for the very first time. And we couldn’t be more excited.
Jon Snow’s hope of forming an allegiance with the Mother of Dragons drew the ire of the North, after many of the lords (including the pint-sized Lyanna Mormont) feared that Kit Harington’s resurrected leader was abandoning his people. But if the northerly kingdoms of Westeros are to stand a chance against the oncoming Night King and his massive army of Wights, they’ll need allies. Powerful allies.
Thankfully, Daenerys Targaryen has made shore at Dragonstone, the rightful home of the Targaryens that has laid barren ever since Stannis Baratheon waged war against King’s Landing many moons ago. Armed with three dragons and a colossal army made up of fearless Unsullied and the remnants of a Dothraki tribe – not to mention those ships from the Iron Fleet that were essentially blown to kingdom come by Euron Greyjoy – it’s clear that Dany poses a huge threat to the Seven Kingdoms as she stakes her claim to the Iron Throne. All of that and more is teased through the gallery below, while up above you’ll find the all-too-brief promo for “The Queen’s Justice.” The real question now is, will Jon Snow really bend the knee upon landing at Dragonstone?
Game of Thrones season 7 continues with the premiere of “The Queen’s Justice” on Sunday, July 30 – July 31st for those across the pond. Beyond that? Episode four of GOT‘s penultimate season will purportedly be titled “The Spoils of War,” so take from that what you will. Euron Greyjoy has kidnapped Ellaria Sand, so chances are the self-proclaimed king of the Iron Islands will deliver her to Cersei as a ‘gift.’
