Game of Thrones filming reveals juicy plot spoilers for season seven
After the announcement that Game of Thrones season seven started filming last week, it was only a matter of time until we received our first spoilers from the filming process.
Spoiler haters, turn back now.
Watchers on the Wall, the famous Game of Thrones fansite, now has a new report about what’s been happening on set since filming began. Their information pertains to scenes that will happen early in season seven, but may still be considered spoilers.
In this report, there’s a couple of big teasers for the upcoming season – which largely concern the water-loving noble family, the Greyjoys.
Seriously, turn back if you don’t want to read season seven spoilers.
The first teaser is that Euron Greyjoy, the cunning uncle of Theon and Yara and King of the Iron Islands, will team up with the newly-crowned Cersei Lannister.
Euron’s original plan, we know, was to form an alliance with Daenerys through her hand in marriage. Fortunately for Dany, an escaped Theon and Yara reached her first and secured an alliance.
Euron and Cersei joining together makes sense in that they’re both obvious series baddies. As the series hurtles towards a certain zombie-filled climax – we imagine they’ll need to start getting rid of some of the intermediate-level-baddies. This is pure speculation, of course, but how much further can Cersei’s character realistically go?
The second teaser is that Euron will face Theon and Yara at sea in the series’ first open sea battle – and Euron will take one of the siblings hostage.
Poor Theon has spent the vast majority of his life as a hostage, living under both benevolent and… not so benevolent captors. Could he be captured again, for better or for worse?
An interesting alternative would be to capture the fierce and free-spirited Yara, and force a Theon clearly suffering from trauma to lead their remaining men and rescue her. This would be a pretty neat parallel to season four, when Yara led a rescue attempt to return her brother to the Iron Islands.
Stay tuned for more Game of Thrones gossip as we learn it.
