New Game of Thrones season 7 teaser

Game of Thrones AryaHBO has released an extremely short but intriguing teaser for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. 

IGN reports that HBO aired its “Coming in 2017” preview on television and included a very brief clip of the seventh season of Game of Thrones. The clip is only a few seconds long but it provides us a glimpse of three main characters, all members of the House Stark.

There is an intriguing first look at Arya on horseback and it looks like she’s wearing clothes suited to the cold climate of the North. With her arrival in Westeros at the end of the sixth season, it’s probable that she is heading to her familial home in Winterfell.

Winterfell is currently under the rule of the newly proclaimed King of the North, Jon Snow, who also makes a quick appearance in the teaser. His sister, Sansa, who is presumably ruling by his side as Queen of the North, also appears, seemingly in the Godswood.

Game of Thrones SansaIn an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sophie Turner discusses Sansa’s season 7 storyline and the way she adjusts to her newly-acquired position:

 “She’s seemingly in control for the first time – and it really suits her… She’s kind of having a bit of a power trip. But she’s also becoming more insecure, because there are threats to the power that she holds.”

Turner likewise expressed her enthusiasm about the season in general:

“What overall excites me about this season is that main characters are coming together and it feels like things are ramping up…It’s really exciting and all feels like it’s coming to a big conclusion.”

With only two seasons left to wrap up its epic story, Game of Thrones really has been moving faster to tie up all the loose ends.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air next summer on HBO.
