The preview, the first look at footage from the latest episodes of the hit fantasy show, has Cersei, played by Lena Headey, warning of “enemies to the east, enemies to the west, enemies in the south, enemies in the north”.
A “great war” also involving Daenerys, played by Emilia Clarke, and Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington is teased and there’s ample foreboding from Liam Cunningham’s Ser Davis Seaworth: “If we don’t put aside our enmities and bound together, we will die – and then it won’t matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.”
“For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come’,” show-runner David Benioff said. “Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it.”
The 7th Season of Game of Thrones will be aired on the 16th of July, 2017
