The 2017 season of "Game of Thrones" may be shorter than usual, but each episode sounds like a potential favorite, with zero filler.
Iain Glen is a fan, anyway, and the actor who plays Jorah Mormont gushed about the scripts to Entertainment Weekly. It's not clear yet if showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss wrote all of the Season 7 scripts themselves, but they probably did, since there are only seven episodes instead of the usual 10. Either way, they are the big picture guys who orchestrated the storyline of Season 7, and apparently it's 100 percent solid:
"I wrote to Dan and David and I said I thought they were the best seven episodes they've ever written," Iain Glen told EW. "The story is going toward a conclusion. There's no sense of treading water. You have storylines colliding. And the evolving drama and relationships are as good as they have ever been. It definitely feels like the beginning of the end game."
Iain Glen has been talking up Season 7 for a while, so it's basically pre-spoiled that Ser Jorah returns, after we last saw him being sent away by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to find a cure for his greyscale, then return to her. Glen said this season, Jorah's story is "about whether he will survive this horrendous sickness he's contracted." Here's hoping, and guessing, that he does.
Fans are currently on standby for a full Season 7 trailer, which will be picked apart and analyzed in the ... what is it now? ... less than two months before the season begins. Hurry up, HBO!
"Game of Thrones" premieres Sunday, July 16 on HBO.
