Hey, Game of Thrones fans! We’ve officially entered the final countdown to the season 7 premiere. One more week left to go. We cannot wait for this season to get started!
HBO is officially gearing up for the season premiere and has released the titles and descriptions for the first three episodes of the seasons. Of course, the descriptions are not nearly as detailed as we would like and the anticipation is killing us (seriously, can July 16th get here quicker please?), however, based on this new information, it is clear that conflict and turmoil will build straight from the very first episode of the season.
Check out the titles and descriptions below:
Episode #61: “Dragonstone” (air date: July 16)
Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.
Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
Episode #62: “Stormborn” (are date: July 23)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.
Written for television by Bryan Cogman; directed by Mark Mylod.
Episode #63: “The Queen’s Justice” (air date: July 30)
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.
Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.
In the past few weeks, HBO has been relentless with its teasers for the upcoming season. The network has released some super cool new photos, a ridiculously eerie poster featuring the Night King, stunningly chilling character posters, and an epic teaser trailer. The episode descriptions finally shed some light as to what fans can expect from the season but, also raise several questions.
In addition to the question surrounding what’s going to happen in each episode, it is still not clear what the precise runtimes for this season’s episodes will be. Fans may be anticipating some slightly longer than normal episodes considering this will be the second to last season of the series, however, for now, time slots for the episodes are listed from 9 pm to 10 pm with the exception, of course, of the 80-minute season finale. The finale will be Game of Thrones’ longest episode ever.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones will premiere July 16th at 9 pm on HBO. Are you ready?
