Game of Thrones Season 7 kicked off with The Revenge of Red Wedding, Bran crosses The Wall, Daenerys reaches Dragonstone and more. But there are many moments that you might have missed.
Now let’s see the details that you might be missed on Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere episode.
1. Opening Credits has a New City
In last Season we saw how House Bolton Flag was removed from Opening Credits over the Winterfell after Jon defeated Ramsey. Now as Sam is in Citadel so it was added in the Opening Credits. Perhaps more Easter eggs will come later in the season.
2. Euron Gift will likely be returned by Cersei
In Dragonstone episode Euron offered a proposal to Marry Cersei, but she refused to do so. Then Euron to prove his royalty he said: “You need proof of my honest intentions. In my experience, the surest way to woman’s heart is with a gift — a priceless gift. I won’t return to King’s Landing until I have that for you.”
HBO has previously released the Title and description of the first three episodes and in the third episode “The Queen’s Justice, the description says “Cersei returns a gift.”
Now, most likely that gift will Euron’s gift. Speaking of, what will the gift be? Another ally? The head of an enemy? We’ll have to wait for episode two to find out.
3. The Valyrian Steel Blade is Back
Sam stole several books from the restricted session of the library in the first episode. While flipping the pages we got a peek at a photo of the Valyrian steel blade that is used to kill Bran in Season 1.
From the book now it is been confirmed that it is a Targaryen Weapon. The dagger is often referred to as the “catspaw blade”. This blade was last seen with Littlefinger when he betrayed Ned. In the EW photo shoot, Arya was carrying that Dragger. It would be interesting to see how Arya will get that Dragger.
4. Night King is literally bringing Strom with Him
In the season six finale, Jon Snow addressed the northern lords who wanted to hole up in their castles and wait out the coming winter. “The true enemy won’t wait out the storm,” Snow said. “He brings the storm.”
Turns out Snow meant that literally — the Night King was seen on the season seven premiere walking ahead of a huge moving snowstorm, with hundred of wights walking behind him.
Fans have long wondered whether the White Walkers are simply more adapted to cold and would, therefore, turn up when it’s coldest outside, or whether they are causing the extreme cold. Now we have our answer.
5. A Clue in the Book
Well, you definitely missed this part while watching the episode. A Reddit user, Beastmodekait paused the premiere at the right moment and managed to take this photo.
The photo is half cut but we can get an idea about the topic. As we all know this book is about Dragonglass and its uses. In the opposite side, Sam found the Mountain of Dragonglass.
If read carefully we will find out that this page talks about the how Dragonglass can be used to cure the illness and disease when ingested. It then proceeds to say that while little harm occurs from the ingestion, that you “can’t discount the harm to the gullible”. It’s fair to say the writer of the book is not convinced, but surely this little tidbit will be enough to convince Sam and Jorah to give it a try. They don’t have much to lose at this point.
We all know that dragonglass is strong in nature. It was used by The Children of the forest to stop Benjen from turning into a wight.
And Dragonglass is also used by The Children of the Forest to create the White Walker in the first place.
The only person who successfully halted the effect of Greyscale is Princess Shireen. And She grows up in Dragonstone which is all covered with dragonglass.
6. It’s Jim Broadbent
This episode introduced Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent as the Archmaester. Now that means he is a kind of an important person.
If Jim Broadbent looks familiar to you, it’s probably from his exquisite work in films like Iris, Moulin Rouge!, Brooklyn, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and yes, the Harry Potter films (Professor Slughorn).
7. Sansa Hair
Game of Thrones always used Sansa’s Hair to light on her allegiances throughout the series. And in this episode, her hair was same like Cersei in Season 3.
Are showrunners hinting at Sansa’s character arc this season? She and Jon absolutely clashed over ideas around leadership – and Cersei was explicitly brought up. “You’re the military man, but I know her,” she told Jon. “If you’re her enemy, she’ll never stop until she’s destroyed you. Everyone who’s ever crossed her she’s found a way to murder.” Jon accuses her of sounding like she admires Cersei, to which Sansa admits: “I learned a great deal from her.”
8. I think Wall is Gonna fall
In the last episode two people mentioned The Wall, they referred Wall and said that It will always stand in Long Night. I think if you draw attention to an object, someone’s going to fire a gun in Act. Both Sansa Stark and the Archmaester said there is The Wall that stands between us and White Walkers.
So, I think the wall is gonna fall this Season, as Bran has crossed the Wall with the mark of Night’s King.
