She had vanquished the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce), destroyed her former daughter-in-law, Margaery (Natalie Dormer), and otherwise rid the planet of her enemies in a spectacular fire. That’s what [director] Miguel Sapochnik said to me after “Hardhome, ‘ and before we did ‘The Battle of the Bastards.’ He said, ‘We don’t want to try to compete with something that already worked”.
Sophie Turner on the blue carpet for Game Of Thrones season 7. And you certainly can’t blame HBO, not since the first batch of Season 5 episodes were hijacked and leaked, causing a major spoiler disaster in 2015.
Proponents point out that her father, Mad King Aerys Targaryen, was a brutal killer and that the Mother of Dragons herself appears to be getting colder with each new season.
Which one of them will triumph?
Are they on an assassination mission to bring down the Night King, or are they after the legendary horn of winter or is it something else entirely?
The pair met on the set of the show while playing lovers (she played the now-deceased Ygritte), and sparked a real-life romance. If Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns, is one of the characters who has benefited most from the transition from page to screen, Ellaria Sand and her daughters, the Sand Snakes, have had a rougher time. “It’s flipped on its head, I find it incredibly interesting and that’s where we kick off”.
KH: I think it would be the same family dynamics just with people who have grown up.
However, Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish has told Sansa that he sees himself as King, with her by his side as Queen. Maybe she’ll hook up with the Band of Brothers, who also follow the Lord of Light. “My planet needs me”, followed by a card that says, “Poochie died on the way back to his home planet”.
Anderson (who portrays Grey Worm on the show) noted that these battles are going to be “very big and very complex”, but also “very emotional”. “Daenerys has come from very tough beginnings”.
But not everyone is in Daenerys’ corner. I think it would be intense. I’ve become a bit of an expert at it. Or do you believe in a good redemption story?
And what about Jon Snow?
Before the show, we grabbed Turner for some more info on what’s coming up for Sansa Stark. Could that really happen again?
Oh, and Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) might also still have a part to play. There have to be: the Night King is on his way. But will he be able to deal with those creepy ice creatures, the White Walkers, rising up beyond the Wall, and, heck, will the Wall even hold against an undead army that threatens to forever end the game of thrones? She took power last season after engineering an explosion that killed her rivals right before she was to go on trial, completing a journey from bitter victim to surprise victor that might feel like the future that never was for some Hillary Clinton fans. Cut your internet connection and hide away in a bunker because with an average viewership of 7.9 million in the USA alone, Game of Thrones is going to be all over the internet next week. Is he the greatest threat to Dany and will Dragonbinder come into play?
