Watch: New 'Game of Thrones' promo suggest a new player has entered the game
Spoiler warning: A lot of people die playing the “Game of Thrones.” So if you don’t want to find out who is still alive, turn away now.
Winter is here.
Or at least, it’s getting a little chilly in Westeros.
The first promotional trailer for the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” dropped Thursday.
The promo – named “Long Walk” – shows us Queen Cersei, Jon Snow, and Daenerys Targaryen making their way to the respective seats of power as James’ “Sit Down” plays in the background.
They take their seats – Cersei on the Iron Throne and Jon in Winterfell (WOOT!) – as the camera begins to zoom in uncomfortably close on their faces. (Note: We’re not 100 percent sure where The Mother of Dragons is sitting, but she’s always on the move, so she won’t be there for long.)
As the camera pushes in closer, all three close their eyes and a chandelier of candles is blown out to a black screen.
Cersei exhales and we can see her breath – a chill in the air. Refer back to the first sentence after the spoiler alert.
A fade-to-black screen takes us into the steal blue eye of who we believe to be The Night’s King.
Player four has entered the “Game of Thrones.”
The seventh season begins July 16, 2017.
