It’s not even that winter is coming, no, not anymore. Winter is here, and so is the Long Night, and we better prepare for it, for Game of Thrones has released pictures for the season finale of Season 7, titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”
The pictures don’t tell us much other than Jon seems to be in one piece and yes, he and Tyrion did make it to the meeting with Cersei, as did Theon, apparently. Jaime is also there, and he seems to be looking at Cersei like she’s lost her mind? Let’s all pray this is the episode where Jaime finally sees her for what she is.
Other than that we only get a close-up of Sansa as she hopefully plots to off Littlefinger and Bran as he sits in his room not telling people that Littlefinger is the actual worst. I still hold out hope that someone will ask him this episode, and he’ll actually share. Plus, even though he’s not featured in these pictures, Sam’s gotta get to Winterfell and compare notes with Bran this episode, right?
Considering how quick things seem to be moving I’m surprised he didn’t get there last episode.
Also – Daenerys is absent from the pictures, but if the title of the episode doesn’t give a huge hint at the fact that we’ll get some Jonerys in this episode, then I don’t know what does. Want it or not, this ship is not coming, no – they’re already sailing.
So yes, the final episode of Season 7 of Game of Thrones is upon us, and we want it almost as much as we don’t want it. Yes, we want to know – but are we ready for another long hiatus?
The answer is probably no, but what else can we do?
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
