Just-released season 7 'Game of Thrones' photos have fans pumped
From Littlefinger's schemes to Tormund's wandering eyes, these stills offer our first peek at the penultimate season of HBO's hit fantasy drama.
While the first two teaser trailers for season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' were eagerly devoured by fans, many were disappointed in the complete lack of new footage to chew on. Would HBO hold tight the reins of secrecy or would they be benevolent in providing a peek at our favorite characters from Westeros?
Thankfully, the cable network appears to be expressing the latter, gifting its devoted subjects with a series of stills from the new season. While there's not a lot here to analyze in great detail, there does appear to be one clear theme running through each: Winter is here and everyone looks absolutely miserable.
That certainty aside, these new stills have only deepened the questions we have regarding season 7. Will Daenerys, played by British actress Emilia Clarke, finally take the Iron Throne? How will the mysterious red priestess Kinvara, played by Israeli actress Ania Bukstein, factor into the unfolding plot lines? And is Jon Snow, played by English actor Kit Harrington, truly the second coming of Azor Ahai?

“I think Jon Snow would be good, but he doesn’t strike me as someone who wants to," he said. "He’s had power thrust upon him. He never asked to be king, it was all the other people in the North who made him king and he has a responsibility to his people.”
