The “Great War” Begins
A terrific teaser trailer for GoT season 7 was released last month, and it has everybody hooked as they speculate about what happens to their favorite characters. As Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, and Cersei Lannister occupy their seats of power, a great winter falls across the land. Jon Snow proclaims “The Great War is here” which could be a reference to the Night King, the supernatural enemy of all human monarchs and the ultimate enemy in the series.
Grander than Ever
Unlike the 10 episodes we were used to with previous seasons, GoT season 7 will only comprise of seven episodes. The show’s creators have promised that there will be a much faster pace, so fans will not feel like they are missing out.
