‘Game of Thrones’ fans have reportedly learned the plot the directors will use in Season 7. Reddit users from the /r/freefolk subreddit have gathered information from different sources, and leaked pictures from the Spain-based set seem to confirm some of the rumors.
Fans online have reacted to the information with mixed feelings. The Free Folk subreddit has gained a reputation for being accurate. They have posted spoilers of previous seasons before episodes were aired and they turned out to be real.
‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 is scheduled for release sometime during the summer of 2017. The leaks align with previous information from HBO indicating the season would last only seven episodes.
‘Game of Thrones’ set photos confirm a much-awaited alliance [Spoiler Alert]
Whereas the storyline from Reddit remains largely in the realm of speculation, paparazzi in Bilbao have photographic proof that at least some of it is right.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ cast and crew are currently filming in Bilbao and the Basque Country in Spain. At these locations, entertainment photographers captured images of Daenerys, Tyrion, Missandei, Grey Worm, and Varys in different settings.
This seems to confirm that Daenerys and her army have finally arrived at Westeros after seven seasons of traveling. The internet speculates she will siege the Dragonstone, the tower in which the Targaryen clan had historically headquartered their dragons.
Fans of the series will remember the Dragonstone from earlier seasons as the war room of Stannis Baratheon and the Red Priestess Melisandre. The tower will have a throne room which Daenerys Targaryen will use in season 7.
Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow will join forces
However, the most interesting picture out of the whole batch that has taken the internet by storm is perhaps the one depicting Jon Snow surrounded by Dothrakis.
Several media outlets have edited the photo to show only Jon, but in that picture, he is not alone. Ser Davos Seaworth is alongside him, and opposite him is no other than Tyrion Lannister.
Their meetup at a beach, presumably a Westeros shore near the Dragonstone, also counts with the attendance of Missandei, several Dothraki men, and a small troop of Jon’s army. Daenerys is notably missing.
Fans of the show already know what this hints at. Season 7 of ‘Game of Thrones’ will most likely see the story starting to wrap up, beginning with the inevitable alliance between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.
The Reddit post seems to confirm as much, providing much more details about which characters come back and what happens to them. Reunions, departures, and death, of course, will take place during the summer of 2017.
