Warning: Potential "Game of Thrones" Season 7 spoilers ahead. HUGE ones. Fly away, sweet summer child, if you want to stay pure!
A Girl really wanted to ignore the rumored leak of the entire "Game of Thrones" Season 7 plot, but ... scenes keep getting confirmed. Here's another one.
According to the script leak (which started on Reddit and went from there), Jon brings a wight to the Dragonpit in King's Landing to convince a large group of characters that the Seven Kingdoms need to unite against the true threat north of the Wall. To get the wight, Jon had taken a team north; that team reportedly included Tormund Giantsbane, Beric Dondarrion, The Hound, Thoros of Myr, Jorah, and -- it seems -- even the long-absent Gendry.
Here's part of what happens next, as relayed in the Daily Mail:
"But they are attacked and surrounded on an island on a frozen lake by the Night's King, where Thoros is killed by a wight polar bear (meaning Beric is down to his last life). Jon Snow's uncle Benjen AKA Coldhands is also killed protecting Jon.
The group are rescued by Daenerys and her three dragons - but not before Viserion is killed by the Night's King.
He then resurrects the dragon as his own mount - who now breathes blue flame - and uses him to destroy The Wall."
That sounds cool as hell, although very sad for Thoros, Coldhands, and Viserion. But if that's confirmed then it suggests other things we really don't want to be true are also probably true. (Other bits have already been confirmed through Watchers on the Wall filming spoilers.)
Watchers on the Wall recently shared intel that seemed to confirm the wight storyline spoilers, with Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Paul Kaye (Thoros of Myr), and Joe Dempsie (Gendry) photographed in Iceland.
And here's a photo from a few weeks ago in Northern Ireland, where GoT filming is based, showing Jorah, Tormund, and Benjen/Coldhands:
Now here's WotW tying everything together, like that rug in "The Big Lebowski":
"Dempsie and his character, the bastard blacksmith Gendry, have been absent from Game of Thrones since season three when he rowed off to parts unknown. Dempsie turned up on the set of Thrones in October during Spain filming, shooting with Liam Cunningham (Davos) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion). Later photos showed Gendry taking off in a boat with Jon Snow, Davos, and Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen).
Back in September, we learned Kaye would be returning as Thoros, the Brotherhood without Banners' red priest. So how does he wind up with Gendry, filming in Iceland which plays the part of the icy land beyond the Wall? Season 7 spoilers have indicated the Brotherhood will be teaming up with Jon's crew on a dangerous mission involving wights. The actors' arrival in Iceland is another piece of confirmation of the early spoiler reports."
What's true? What's false? What's in between? We won't know for sure until "Game of Thrones" premieres this summer. But if the entire script for the whole season was leaked in advance ... man ... someone is going to get Ned Stark'd by D&D.
