The Opening scene blew us Apart, almost literally!
Opened with Jonestown-style massacre, the first episode, “Dragonstone” of Game of Thrones Season 7 will shock and surprise you at the same time. Since the source material from the original book, the Song of Ice and Fire was spent by season five, even the most ardent fans no longer know which direction the series will take. Let us walk you through the new theories and storylines that we gathered from the clues hidden in the first episode of the seventh instalment of the show so notorious.
First things first, as we’ve already mentioned the master stroke of Arya Stark, the scene that began even before the opening credit and left us all stoked, was actually the extension of the last episode of the Season 6, where Arya kills Walder Frey and his sons. The Arya-as-Walder monologue tells Frey’s wife, “”If they ask what happened tell them the north remembers. Tell them winter came for House Frey.” The term “North Remembers” points out to the fact that this season is going to be a bit more about the “Starks”, primarily, Arya and Brandon, who’re yet to find their way home and unite with their family. We have to wait and see how the whole scenario unfurls.
While we truly feel that a little disagreement between Jon and Sansa have been blown out of proportion, but the fact that Littlefinger is still whispering into Sansa’s ears and her reluctance to throw him out of the Winterfell sparks all kinds of controversies.
“She’s not getting the credit she feels she deserves, that Littlefinger would grant her with. She wants recognition for the effort that she put in, to claim back Winterfell, because if it wasn’t for her, it wouldn’t have happened. So, I think she’s seeing Littlefinger as a bit more trustworthy and more of an ally than she initially thought”, as told by Sophie Turner in an interview with Variety.
Also, if we go by Fans’ theories of the White Wedding and that Sansa is still a valuable pawn in Littlefinger’s plan, rivalry between the siblings is just inevitable. Sooner or later, we’ll be seeing more of dissent between the two that’s definitely going to work in favour of the sneaky and conniving Petyr Baelish.
Cersie is in Trouble
Cersie is getting a room-sized map of the Seven Kingdoms painted on the floor, when Jamie Lannister walks in. While they had a chat over the new floor map, we couldn’t help but notice that Cersie is standing atop “The Neck” and Jamie is standing on the “Fingers”. If we recall the prophecy, “Volanqar” given in the book, Cersie will be strangled to death by her little brother (Volanquar).
Neck-Fingers – Does it ring the bell, anyone?
Nothing in this series is a coincidence. Everything leads to consequence that may take years to unravel. Looks like she’s going to be “Betrayed” yet again by her own family member, such is her destiny! We are starting to feel a bit sad about her situation…..but the circle of Karma, my dear!
Humanity has a chance at survival
Sam’s discovery at Citadel is going to change the course of things for everybody, especially Jon. There is a lot of backstory to this revelation, and those who haven’t read the book, would find it hard to decipher. But the important part, and a huge one, to know is that Dragonstone castle is itself made of the dragon glass. ALL OF IT!
While Jon Snow is preparing to fight the White Walkers, he would need a huge trove of Dragon Glass to take down the army of the dead. Good news is that Sam found the mother lode and he’s writing to Jon. Let’s see if this article reaches Jon before Sam’s letter.
There’s a mountain underground the castle that withholds all the dragon glass that you’d ever need to equip your army to fight against the dead.
Shall We Begin?
Daenerys Stormborn has set foot in Dragonstone, the ancestral seat of House Targaryen. We couldn’t help but notice – Not even a single soldier guarding the castle? Standing behind the map that was once built by Stannis, she utters the words “Shall we begin?” Looks like Danny is soon going to visit her northern neighbours.
