Three Things We Want to See in Game of Thrones Season 7

And we’re back! It’s been a long 12 months since the finale of season six of Game of Thrones aired. We ended last season with the nearly perfect “The Winds of Winter” (and we highly suggest reading the review of it as a refresher).

At that point, Cersei had taken the Iron Throne as her own; Jon Snow and Sansa laid claim on the North; Daenerys began crossing the Narrow Sea with an impressive group of supporters; Barack Obama was still the president.

Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.

Last season was spotty in terms of quality, but ended on an unprecedented high note. With a shortened seven-episode run, we’re hoping we’ll have a tighter, more consistent season. From HBO’s official synopsis of the season premiere, “Dragonstone,” we can expect Jon to be working on organizing his troops in the North and Cersei leading in her new position.

And in reference to the title of the episode, Daenerys, after years away, is finally coming back home.

Here are a few of our hopes for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones:

  • Bran actually does something! After seasons of traveling and one training to become the new Three-Eyed Raven, it’s time for Bran to spread his wings (pun intended).
  • Some fall out from the paternity of Jon Snow. We now have confirmation of the huge news that Jon is a Stark, and very likely a Targaryen. What does it mean for his claim to the Iron Throne?
  • Arya gets back to her kill list. Just like Bran, Arya has been off doing her own thing for a few seasons, getting way off track of her original goal to avenge those who hurt her family. Arya is a badass and we’re ready to see her get her revenge.
