Filming has been ongoing on the lovely islet of Gaztelugatxe in Basque Country for the past couple days, with major Game of Thrones characters descending to begin shooting scenes for season 7.
We’ve seen a few batches of photos and videos come down the pipe this week, but nothing is as exciting as the newest image to drop into our laps. We’ve been able to put two and two together as to what’s going to happen, based on the handful of photos that have surfaced lately, but we weren’t certain if this scene was going to be filmed on Gaztelugatxe or in a studio in Northern Ireland.
A new photo that’s just popped up on Instagram answers the question for us. Tucked safely below the cut, MAJOR SPOILERS!
The image was taken from a distance, and is blurry but that is without a doubt a meeting between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow taking place. Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington have both been shooting on the islet, and apparently did film a scene bringing together these two leading characters, finally, for the seventh season.
Update: And more! Also blurry, unfortunately.
The two appear to be alone for their encounter, overlooking the sea. We see that Daenerys is wearing the new dark outfit she was spotted in earlier.
Rumors have been floating around for weeks that these two powers may be joining forces to take on Cersei and the Crown, and the White Walkers too. Now we have at least one piece of evidence that Daenerys and Jon will be sharing the screen in season 7.
