The Great War Begins in GAME OF THRONES’ New Trailer

The Great War Begins in GAME OF THRONES’ New Trailer

What’s the one thing you never want to do with a wild and feral animal? Back them into a corner. With nothing left to lose, they will lash out with abandon, and that seems to be exactly what’s about to go down in season seven of Game of ThronesIn the first official trailer for the season, Cersei looks poised to burn the whole of the Known Realm to the ground in her quest for power—but little does she know there’s a much greater war to be worried about: the battle for humanity as the White Walkers continue to move slowly southward.

It seems as though there will be a million more complications that gum up the works for ol’ Jon Snow, the newly crowned King in the North. With Littlefinger whispering in Sansa’s ear in order to create a divide and Arya seemingly on her way back home, the rose-colored reunion that began last year will probably not end as well as it began.

And that’s not even taking into consideration THE VERY LARGE AND IMPRESSIVE DRAGONS that Dany has riding with her to Westeros. Upon arriving at Dragonstone, it seems as though the possibly-maybe Princess that was Promised has a lot more to consider in her attempt to reclaim her ancestral throne. Here’s hoping homegirl gets together with Jon Snow and the two focus on The Great War rather than silly Cersei’s hungry power play.
