Game Of Thrones season 7 GIFs by Wiki Of Thrones

The first episode of the new season of Game of Thrones airs tonight and we can’t be any less excited about it. While what comes next will be revealed today, of course, starting off with the reunions of some of our favourite characters, a quick recap is something we need hours ahead of the premiere.

We can visualise Westeros burning blue with Night King’s new mount Viserion this season along with a number of theories and some wishful thinking like the much-hyped Cleganebowl, and much more. The last season did leave us with some clues for the end-game in Season 8. Here’s a quick recap of the Seventh Season, explained in the gifs that we had created for each episode:

#Episode 1: Dragonstone

The first episode of Season 7 begins with the eventual fate of House Frey by Arya Stark, who wipes out its existence from the map of Westeros. Bran crosses the Wall with Meera Reed to get back home. In the North, Jon Snow as the King in the North,  prepares the defences, asking all to play a part in the Great War. He decides to forgive the Karstarks and the Umbers even when they had betrayed the Starks, not taking into account Sansa’s advice.

Cersei takes a walk on the newly painted map of Westeros, discussing the future of their House with Jaime. Euron Greyjoy becomes her newest ally promising her a valuable gift. Samwell Tarly is under training at Old Town – on his journey of being a Maester. Lastly, we see a brief encounter between him and Ser Jorah Mormont, while Daenerys Targaryen makes her way back home – landing at Dragonstone.

#Episode 2: Stormborn

The second episode of Season 7 begins with a confrontation between Varys and Daenerys – who judges his loyalty. Melisandre arrives at Dragonstone, asking Dany to summon Jon Snow. Jon receives two letters – one from Dany and the other from Samwell Tarly. Based on Sam’s confirmation of Dragonglass on Dragonstone, Jon decides to go and meet the Dragon Queen, while facing a revolt from the Northerners. Sam tries to heal Jorah’s Greyscale – a gross scene.

Arya Stark upon hearing that Jon is King in the North decides to head back to Winterfell, only to meet with her long-lost direwolf Nymeria. Cersei in King’s Landing tries to persuade her bannermen to support her instead of the Mad King’ daughter. Dany holds a meeting, where her allies Ellaria Sand, Yara Greyjoy, and Queen Ollena give a nod to Tyrion Lannister’s plan of storming King’s Landing.  Euron Greyjoy attacks Yara’s fleet which results in Yara and Ellaria along with Tyene Sand being captured. Theon being fearful, leaps down the ship.

#Episode 3: The Queen’s Justice

This episode begins with Jon arriving at Dragonstone to meet Dany, who is only concerned about the threat of the White Walkers and isn’t ready to bend the knee to a Targaryen. Dany learns that she has lost her two valuable allies Greyjoys and the Martells. Theon is rescued from the sea – who is mistreated by the Ironborn for failing to save Yara. Yara, Ellaria, and Tyene are paraded through King’s Landing to be presented as a gift to Cersei Lannister.

Cersei poisons Tyene Sand – an act of revenge against Ellaria and justice for her deceased daughter Mrycella. Bran arrives at Winterfell and reunites with Sansa – the acting Lady of Winterfell. Dany sends the Unsullied to capture Casterly Rock, while most of the Lannisters are absent. Lannisters and Tarlys attack Highgarden, plundering it to pay the debts of Iron Bank. Jaime confronts Olenna Tyrell, gives her poison to drink. Before dying, Olenna confesses to having poisoned Joffrey at the Purple Wedding.

#Episode 4: Spoils of War

Arya Stark arrives at Winterfell, reuniting with her siblings Sansa and Bran. Meera Reed leaves for her home. Jon and Dany discuss the legend of the last Long Night, based on ancient carvings in the cave of Dragonglass. Dany is filled with anger when she learns that they’ve lost Highgarden too. Theon Greyjoy arrives at Dragonstone to ask for Dany’s help, who at first is choked by Jon for betraying the Stark and then learns that Dany isn’t on Dragonstone.

Bronn and Jaime make their way to King’s Landing with the plundered gold and grains only to be ambushed by Dany and the Dothrakis. Many Lannisters are killed and Jaime attempts to end the Battle by killing Dany. He is about to be roasted by Drogon, while being saved by Bronn.

#Episode 5: Eastwatch

The episode begins with Dany demanding the survivors of the Battle to bend the knee while roasting Tarlys alive. Jaime and Bronn return to King’s Landing. Jon meets with Drogon for the first time. Much to Dany’s surprise, Drogon allows Jon to pet him.

Bran wargs into a bunch of ravens to Eastwatch only to learn that Night King is arriving soon. While Jon learns the same and demands to leave for Winterfell, Tyrion suggests him to present a wight to Cersei in order to get the support of King’s Landing in the great war.

Davos smuggles Tyrion to King’s Landing while meeting with Gendry in Flea Bottom. Gendry follows Davos to Dragonstone, while Jon and company head for Eastwatch by the Sea. Sam being bored of the monotony of the Citadel, leaves Old Town with Gilly and Baby Sam.

Littlefinger being aware of Arya spying on him unearths Sansa’s letter to Robb. Jon, Jorah, Gendry, and Davos reach Eastwatch by the Sea and unite with Tormund and Brotherhood Without Banners and head for their ‘wight-hunting’ expedition.

#Episode 6: Beyond the Wall

Jon and party travel North of the Wall and we see a few small talks between characters like Jon and Jorah, Tormund and Sandor Clegane, and Gendry with the Brotherhood until they are attacked by an undead Polar Bear. Thoros of Myr is severely injured, while they continue their mission. Arya plays the Game of Faces with Sansa, judging her loyalty to Jon. Daenerys has a discussion with Tyrion and gets furious when the subject of succession is brought about.

Jon and party encounter a couple of wights lead by a White Walker. Jon kills the Walker, and they try to capture a wight while being ambushed by a hundred thousand wights and the Night King. Gendry being the fastest of them, runs back to Eastwatch to send a raven to Dany, informing her of the ambush. Dany arrives in time to save them but loses Viserion who is killed by the Night King. Jon is left behind only to be rescued by Benjen Stark. Dany makes a promise to Jon to fight alongside him to avenge the death of her dragon.  The Night King resurrects Viserion as a White Walker to be his mount.

#Episode 7: The Dragon and The Wolf

The ultimate episode of Season 7 begins with Jon and Daenerys presenting the captured wight to Cersei in order to get her support in the Great War. While initially, Cersei agrees to help, yet she is pissed when Jon says he can’t pledge his loyalty to her. Tyrion tries to persuade her, and she agrees to help after their small conversation. Sansa discovers Arya’s faces while she continues the Game of Faces. Littlefinger tries to take advantage of the chaos, turning the sisters against each other. Jon and Dany plan for their Journey to Winterfell, while Theon asks permission to try rescuing his sister. Theon Greyjoy indulges in a fight while gaining the respect of the Ironborn, while Littlefinger is executed by Arya.

Cersei reveals her plan to Jaime of betraying Jon and Dany, while a disgusted Jaime abandons her to honour his pledge. Sam arrives at Winterfell while discovering with Bran that Jon is a legitimate Targaryen named Aegon and that Robert’s rebellion was built on a lie. Jon and Daenerys on their way to Winterfell make love, while Tyrion gives a concerned look. Sansa and Arya reconcile, while Bran wargs and flies a flock of ravens to Eastwatch. Night King mounted on Viserion melts a portion of the Wall at Eastwatch by the Sea. The Army of The Dead breaches the Wall, while Tormund and Beric barely escape.

Season 8 premieres tonight and you can watch it on HBO in usa and if you live in India, you can watch Game Of Thrones online on Hotstar!

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!

Take a closer look at "A Song of Ice and Fire" and "The Book of Brothers" from the Game of Thrones finale

The Game of Thrones finale was packed with a lot of things going down, but there were two very important props that we could have used a better look at – the books! “A Song of Ice and Fire” and “The Book of Brothers” made brief appearances in the finale. Now, thanks to HBO, we have a better look at both the books. Read on!

HBO’s Game of Thrones behind the scenes blog, Making Game of Thrones recently featured both the props, in a batch of photos that give you a good look at them. We saw “A Song of Ice and Fire” shown off to the small council by Samwell Tarly, who reveals that Archmaester Ebrose compiled it, with the title being his own suggestion. Take a better look at it, below:

We had seen The Book of Brothers, also known as “the White Book”, before in the show, and we saw it in the finale, with Brienne filling in the pages for Jaime Lannister. Take a better look at it, below:

Game of Thrones gives us a closer look at some of the amazing costumes from the series finale

Avatar

Published

The costumes on Game of Thrones have always been more than just clothes, weaving in symbols and meanings from the story being told on screen. It is but natural, then, that the Game of Thrones series finale will have costumes that speak volumes even on their own. The Game of Thrones blog recently delved deep into three such costumes, belonging to Sansa Stark, Brandon Stark, and Ser Brienne of Tarth.

Why these three, out of all the characters that we encounter in Season 8 episode 6 ‘The Iron Throne’? Probably because all three went up significantly in their respective power ladders – Sansa became Queen in the North, Bran became King of the Six Kingdoms, and Brienne became the first Lady Commander of the Kingsguard in Westerosi history. Their costumes reflect this shift in power, along with their personal histories.

Sansa Stark, Queen in the North – Coronation Gown

got-costumes-finale-sansa-bran-brienne

Sansa’s coronation dress is the epitome of power dressing, with all her loyalties and history displayed in full glory. It also follows Sansa’s habit of borrowing elements from other power women she has been close to. Game of Thrones costume designer Michelle Clapton breaks it down in an Instagram post.

The fabric used in this dress is the same as the ‘Dark Sansa’ dress – which Sansa wore during her stay in the Vale. It symbolized her shift from a naive young girl to a player in the game of Thrones. The dye used in the coronation dress, on the other hand, is the same as Margery’s wedding gown, symbolizing the friendship between the two of them.

The embroidery and detailings predictably include the Stark Direwolf, but also fish scales, which points back to her House Tully roots, from mother Catelyn’s side. Her crown also follows this pattern of Direwolf heads melting into fish scales. The red Weirwood leaves in the train symbolize her territorial power – the wintry North in all its glory.

Brandon Stark, King of the Six Kingdoms – Royal Doublet

Bran has finally let go of the heavy fur coat that accompanied him throughout the series and embraced velvet. This is the first time we see him in this fabric, which symbolizes his royal standing. But he is not just a king, he is also the Three-Eyed Raven – the most significant part of his identity now. That identity is clearly depicted in the dark grey colour and feather detailing of his doublet.

Ser Brienne of Tarth, Lady Commander of the Kingsguard – Golden Armour

Serving as a Kingsguard is the highest honour for any knight in the realm, and Brienne makes it right to the top of even that motley crowd. Her skill at arms and rock-solid moral compass combined made her a force to reckon with. Her new golden armour reflects her glory and power – every inch of which she deserves.
