LOS ANGELES, March 31 — HBO’s Game of Thrones dropped the first teaser for its seventh season yesterday, and all signs seem to indicate that it’s going to be war.
The clip titled “Long Walk” hints at the conflicts to come and focuses on Cersei (Lena Headey), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke).
It shows all three contenders for the Iron Throne walking alone down empty corridors before sitting on their personal thrones.
Snow takes his seat at Winterfell, Cersei sits on the Iron Throne and Daenerys takes on an as-yet unknown throne — but most fans predict that it is Dragonstone.
The song that accompanies their long walks is Brit pop classic, Sit Down by James. (There’s a nice little touch there when the lyric “Those who find themselves touched by madness” cuts to Cersei.)
We also know that winter has finally come, as Cersei exhales frosty breath before the camera zooms out to reveal that we’re looking at all of them through the crystalline blue eye of the Night King.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16.
