"Game of Thrones" Season 7 is meant to feature "a whole bunch of reunions and first time meetings that people have been waiting for for a long time." At least one major meeting will happen right in the Sunday, July 16 premiere.
Here's the very little scoop Entertainment Weekly shared:
Any scoop on Game of Thrones? — Taylor
Well, everything is being kept tightly under wraps — seriously, most of the photos that have been released are actually just from the premiere, so don't make assumptions about the whole season based on those alone. But I will say that Dany's journey to Dragonstone won't be easy given that Euron is out there looking for her, and you can expect at least one major character meet-up in the first hour.
HBO has yet to reveal the title of Season 7, Episode 1, but it's meant to be 59 minutes long, and will probably feature (among many other things) Daenerys Targeryen arriving at her Targaryen home base at Dragonstone, after sailing to Westeros at the end of Season 6. We left Jon Snow being declared King in the North, so we should pick up his story from there. Cersei Lannister was just crowned Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, with her not-too-thrilled twin bro Jaime Lannister sort of by her side. Arya Stark was last seen taking down the Freys at the Twins, but we're anticipating a Stark reunion -- with Arya heading north at some point, since she's shown in very cold weather in photos and in the trailer. But will she get to Winterfell in the premiere?
A Stark reunion doesn't qualify as a major meeting -- that would be Dany meeting Jon, or Dany meeting Cersei, or Jon meeting Cersei, or all three meeting in the same spot at the same time, which would blow our minds. EW did throw Euron Greyjoy's name into the mix, so maybe he's involved in a major meeting.
There are episode spoilers out there that may or may not be accurate, but we're content to speculate and then wait and see. After the Sunday, July 16 premiere airs, the cast and crew will be at Comic-Con to share more details on what happens in Episode 2 and beyond.
