The wait…well, the wait is still here, but with the release of the first teaser trailer for Season 7 of Game of Thrones, it’s a sign that winter and the White Walkers are truly on their way.
It’s a highly stylised teaser that shows the sigils of all the major houses of Westeros slowly crumbling to pieces, with ominous music and even more ominous voiceovers from Daenarys (Emilia Clarke), Cersei (Lena Headey) and some characters who’ve since died.
But the most chilling quote of all comes from Jon Snow (Kit Harington) himself:
The same thing is coming for all of us. There is only one war that matters: The Great War. And it is here.
That seems to be a pretty obvious indication that the Night’s Watch (and maybe some of the other houses) are going to be battling the White Walkers in GOT season 7. But how, and who will die is still anybody’s guess. No matter how it pans out in the end, all we know is that it’s going to be pretty dark.
In any case, we’ll find out on July 16 when the first episode premieres. So, only 127 more days to wait then. Just a reminder: The new season will only have 7 episodes instead of the usual 10. Sobs.
