Does The Official Game Of Thrones Season 7 Soundtrack Contain Story Clues?


The impassioned Game of Thrones fanbase is currently beside itself with excitement in anticipation of Sunday’s season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

It is, without question, a momentous and defining chapter in Westerosi history, and HBO has ensured the seventh season will go out with a bang thanks to a super-sized 80-minute episode. Best settle in for some drama, folks, because it’s about to get hairy.

Coming off last week’s “Beyond the Wall,” in which the Night King trapped the ‘Snowicide Squad,’ unleashed an army of Wights, and killed (and indeed resurrected!) Viserion, viewers have been left on tenterhooks as the fate of Westeros hangs in the balance. But thanks to season 7’s official soundtrack listing, we may have some story clues pertaining to Sunday’s grand finale. First spotted by Vanity Fair, music from the show’s seventh season is expected to go on sale from September 29th, and it’s once again composed by Thrones veteran Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim, Iron Man).

As VF points out, all of these tracks have featured in Game of Thrones season 7, save for “Casterly Rock,” “A Lion’s Legacy,” “Message for Cersei,” “Ironborn,” “No One Walks Away from Me,” “Truth,” “The Army of the Dead” and “Winter Is Here.” Cue the speculation.

And though we don’t expect “The Dragon and the Wolf” to include an extensive, music-heavy opener in the vein of “Light of the Seven,” these song titles do point to some fairly major events ahead of Sunday’s curtain call. Chief among them is “No One Walks Away from Me,” which is surely a reference to the conflict brewing between Cersei and Daenerys. Last we checked, the latter wasn’t in attendance at the Dragon Pit, so there’s a very good chance she’ll swoop in while riding one of her two remaining dragons.

Also of note, the final track, “Winter is Here,” may be reserved for the moment when the Night King, armed with his newly-acquired weapon of mass destruction, breaches the Wall.

Game of Thrones season 7 ends Sunday, August 27th, with the premiere of “The Dragon and the Wolf.” If it’s more coverage you’re after, look no further than Thursday’s high-res stills.
