The way the trailer opens with Cersei talking about how they (Lannisters) are surrounded by enemies all around Westeros, gives the basic idea about the theme of the upcoming season. Since Cersei has crowned herself as the Queen of Westeros, the news will spread like wildfire all around. Everybody is wanting to take over the Iron Throne now. Cersei tells Jaime that they have got enemies all around them and they must defeat them all. As we already know, Daenerys is sailing towards Westeros, with her army of the Unsullied, Euron too, is sailing towards the Iron Throne. In the North, it is Jon, who is already being hailed as the new king. So, the Starks are getting ready to lay the onslaught of the south. Meanwhile, the people of Dorne are angry with the Lannisters for killing Oberyn. The Sand Snakes, comprising of his illegitimate daughters, Obara, Nymeria and Tylene will seek revenge (accompanied with Ellaria). The trailer breaks down with plenty of characters like Cersei, Jaime, Jon, Sansa etc. Each have their respective share in the trailer. We encounter Ser Davos saying that there is a darkness coming (reference to the White Walkers) and they should be ready to face it and do not focus much on gaining control over Westeros. Talking of other prominent figures in the trailer, we see a greyscaled hand which probably belongs to Jorah Mormont, who seems alive but in a bad shape. The Lannister army can be seen when Cersei says that they will defeat every single foe of theirs, as they (she and Jaime) are the last living Lannisters. And as we know, Cersei is the perfect example of being cunning as a vixen and as unforgiving as the Wildfire. Many people have pointed out to Dany’s dragons, especially Drogon. They have become huge! As per the books, Drogon goes on to become the biggest of the three, and it can be seen clearly from the trailer. We even see the Unsullied raging into Casterly Rock, home to the Lannisters. Talking of the Lannisters, Ser Gregor Clegane’s new costume/armour is beyond astoundingly horrifying. Surely, he will give many people a hard time in the seasons to come. We even see glimpses of Dragonstone and Danerys’s new throne looks great.

The first episode of the upcoming season GOTS07E01 will have a great build-up for the other parts. Everywhere there is tumult and a state of emergency. Every noble family wants to gain their control over Westeros. Be it the Lannisters, who want to defend, or even the Starks or the lone Targaryen who want to avenge, everybody is getting ready for war. It is just a matter of some episodes that we see how the story unfolds. But one thing is for sure, everybody is so occupied with politics that they are diverted from the coming darkness. The White Walkers are hostile, and since Winter has already arrived in Westeros, it has become no-man’s land. All we can do is wait for 16th July, and hope that our beloved characters are spared in this season.
