After a week of plans that went off the rails, we can expect interesting consequences. The new photos offer a glimpse at the aftermath as characters are forced to regroup. Expect danger, reunions, and more scheming.
The latest photos fill in some of the blanks left by HBO’s vague outline of what to expect in episode 7, provided by its (brief) official synopsis:
The High Sparrow eyes another target. Jaime confronts a hero. Arya makes a plan. The North is reminded.
With the High Sparrow (played by Jonathan Pryce) coming out on top of the Lannisters (at least for now), he is apparently ready to set his sights elsewhere. Meanwhile, though, the photos show Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in the wake of being outmaneuvered. Now that Jaime is no longer part of the Kings guard, he’s set to face Blackfish Tully (Clive Russell) as part of the army. The newly returned character is also shown in the images.
Meanwhile, a new plan is necessary for Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) after she opted not to kill Lady Jane Crane (Essie Davis). The Waif has been given the green light to kill her, so she needs to find a way to stay alive. Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), on the other hand, got a break last Sunday. She was released from prison and is shown getting a warm welcome.
Last but not least, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) are shown meeting with Robett Glover (Tim McInnerny). It looks like they’re trying to gain support in the North.
We’ll see it all go down when Game of Thrones season 6, episode 7 airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
