The seventh (and penultimate) season of HBO’s Game of Thrones continues to film in various locations around Spain, and some decent quality images from the Los Barruecos National Park set have found their way online today (via Watchers on The Wall) which might just signpost some pretty major spoilers.
The images themselves are all taken from a distance and don’t give a whole lot away – though it seems clear that the Lannister army is amassing for some kind of skirmish. Actors Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) are visible on horseback, and we also have a much better look at the pair as they prepare for another take. If you look closely at Jaime’s scabbard, you might recognize his Valyrian Steel sword as Widow’s Wail, which was formerly carried by his deceased
nephew son Joffrey.
At any rate, here come those potential spoilers: rumor has it that these scenes will take place after the Lannister’s sack of Highgarden, and the ensuing battle is actually an ambush by Dany and her dragons. We don’t know for certain if this will occur, but if the recent leaked plot info is true, we could be looking at a fiery massacre.
