Wildly popular TV shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead may have different plots and air on different networks, but they do have one thing in common: they have to deal with individuals who work doggedly to spoil upcoming plots. Some set photos from the upcoming seventh season have already revealed a well-liked character is going to be returning, and now we know more about the meet-up that looks to be coming to Dragonstone. If you'd like to avoid any spoilers about Game of Thrones Season 7, head out of the article now.
Photos from set indicated last week that representatives from Daenerys Targaryen's camp and representatives of Jon Snow's camp would be meeting up. Originally, we knew that Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, had filmed a scene with Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos, on the show. That production shoot reportedly also prominently featured the return of Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry on HBO's fantasy drama. Today, new set photos indicate it's not just Dany and Jon Snow's ambassadors that are meeting up, Jon Snow is also on hand, as well. In fact, a recent photo caught actor Kit Harington shaking Peter Dinklage's hand while the cameras were rolling on a beach in Spain.
TMZ got the photos, which reveal Jon Snow is in Spain and filming scenes with a slew of Dany's people, including Tyrion Lannister and a whole bunch of Dothraki warriors. The set photos indicate that a major alliance will be coming in Season 7, and it's an alliance that many fans have been rooting for. Season 6 revealed there's a good chance if not a likelihood that Jon Snow is half Targaryen himself, and as the potential byproduct of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, he and Dany's claim to the throne would be pretty formidable.
When last we left the world of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow had rallied the North with some help from Sansa Stark and Lyanna Mormont. Dany had finally hopped on a ship with her army in order to try and reclaim her birthright, and Cersei had lost her son Tommen but had claimed the Iron Throne. Clearly the throne is precarious in King's Landing at this point, and with Dany and Jon both vying to usurp the Lannisters, trouble seems to be a'brewing--especially since it looks like Gendry, the bastard of Robert Baratheon and another potential throne claimer seems to be back into the fold.
We won't be getting new episodes of Game of Thrones for some time. Production started on Season 7 last month, and fewer episodes are going to be produced for a 2017 release. We'll let you know as soon as HBO reveals an official premiere date, but for now you can check out what we know about Season 7, here.
