Updated with Video! The First Shots of Game of Thrones Season 7 Have Arrived!

Sansa

The rumors started swirling earlier today on social media that a new HBO trailer was floating around, offering a preview of the network’s offerings for 2017, including Game of Thrones. No hard proof turned up until this evening, when fans tuned in to see the newest episode of Westworld, and luckily, HBO’s ‘Coming in 2017’ preview aired just then! The video has not been uploaded yet online but fans who happened to catch a glimpse of the trailer spotted the Thrones stars, and grabbed a few screenshots.

In addition to the above image of Sansa (Sophie Turner in her new wig- that’s going to take some getting used to), quick scenes of Jon Snow and Arya on horseback were also present in the video.

Update: HBO has finally uploaded a HQ version of the clip:

    1. I’d say that’s Sansa in the foreground of the Jon image, between the setting (Winterfell), the person’s height relative to Jon, and the hairstyle.

      The background of the Arya image looks wintery to me, so I’ll guess that’s her cresting the hill and seeing Winterfell again.

    2. The wig does kinda look weird, but it makes Sansa resemble Cat even more so I’m kind of okay with it.
      (Gods, no, I’m not okay with it. It still looks weird.)

    3. Eeeeeee!!! I just saw the promo.

      Jon: Looking as handsome as ever, lol, and with the gorget under the cloak, he resembles King Robb from S2. Which, okay, isn’t surprising.

      Arya: She may already be wearing the brown outfit she had on in the PAP4U pics from October. And like I said in the previous thread, she looks like she’s ready to join the Night’s Watch in that raggedy black cloak. And looks very much like Jon.

      Sansa: The wig is not working for me. Didn’t like it in the PAP4U pics and still doesn’t look good in “action”.

    4. Wow! This is a surprise!!
      Arya STARK going home, Jon looking kingly! I will need to get used to Sansa’s wig lol.
      Hope the video gets uploaded soon.

      In the fuzzy screencap it does appear wintery, but after seeing the promo for myself it doesn’t look particularly different than any other region in Westeros. It looks like any partly cloudy day with blue sky peeking out. Of course they could CGI the background to make it look snowy.

    6. I keep looking at the shot of Sansa to see what so many are taking issue with, but I’m not seeing it. If I didn’t know it was a wig, I would think twice about her hair. It looks like every other season.

    7. They couldn’t have made Arya more Jon/Ned-like, love it.

      I was too busy trying not to correct Sansa’s mismatched eyebrows to notice her wig. Is it really so bad? Kinda in shadow, you just can’t see her part as much.

    8. Oh this is unexpected ..

      So does this supposed to be year ender video ..
      I would love if we get year ender video with another couple of new shots..in that way we would have gotten two videos instead of one..

      Arya shot is definitely her looking at winter fell and Jon is taking with sansa I guess ..

    9. I swear to God, I think I have wig blindness, at least when it comes to Game of Thrones. Since the very first season of the show, there have been numerous complaints among the fandom about the wigs that several actors have sported. It’s almost become an annual tradition – who’s got the terrible wig this year? (I remember the outcry over Isaac’s wig in Season 4 was particularly dire).

      I’m not disputing the validity of those complaints – everyone sees what they see, and they almost assuredly know far more about the subject than I do. And yet, with only a handful of exceptions, I have to admit that I’ve looked at those exact same images and routinely said – to borrow a phrase from Westworld – “That doesn’t look like anything to me.”

      Point being, in my perhaps unqualified opinion, I think that Sophie’s wig looks just fine. Honestly, if I didn’t know that she was going to be wearing a wig this season, I wouldn’t have registered that anything was different. Certainly not from that one image. I think she looks lovely, as she always does.

      Anyway, the new images look awesome! I particularly love the shot of Arya on horseback, staring out across the Northern moors at something in the distance that I can only hope is Winterfell. Several people have already pointed out that how similar she looks to Jon in his new style as King in the North. Indeed, now that Winter is here, all of the Starks are looking particularly at well-suited to the times. No family can rock the thick fur cloaks quite like they can!

      This promo isn’t the usual HBO yearender – that usually comes out a bit later, and has more footage from the past year. I do wonder if when that arrives, we’ll get this same footage again. Maybe with one additional shot.

    11. Pigeon,

      I was too busy trying not to correct Sansa’s mismatched eyebrows to notice her wig.

      kaka:
      poor sansa overplucked her right eyebrow. she needs some anastasia brow wiz to fix it.

      OMG, now I can’t unsee the mismatched eyebrows. 🙁

      ETA: I see the top of Longclaw poking out of Jon’s cloak. The fact he’s wearing his sword, the whole outfit, and the probability that he’s talking to Sansa in WF leads to me believe

      he’s getting ready to depart for Dragonstone in this scene.

    12. Just caught the promo. So excited. In S4E10 Arya rode off on a white horse before taking ship to Braavos. Now she returns home severe in black and on a black horse–all grown up and looking like the ultimate Stark. The books make it even more clear how much A&J love each other so ever since Season 1 I’ve longed for the A+J reunion. Can it actually be at hand next season? A+S should be pretty nice too, though Sansa’s wig looks like she borrowed it from Melisandre..
      Thanks, Sue, for staying up late and tugging this news out of the tail of comments on the previous article to start this new one.

    13. Just 7 more months until we get season 7. Those three shots looks great, I think Arya is

      looking at Winterfell in that shot, after she free Edmure Tully from the dungeons at the twins and she will head straight North.

      I’m not really since they were most of the hype after last season. The early teasers dont usually indicate what the bulk of the season is going to be about.

      Also not surprised but still disappointed that they once again leave Bran out of the Stark party. He’s part of the family too, HBO.

      Flayed Potatoes,

      That wig looks janky, Jon’s breast plate is amazing. Kingly. Arya looking like Ned/Jon, in her black cloak, her Needle and a look of awe on her face. Is Arya finally home? Could this be her opening scene for S7?

      I am so emotional right now. And it’s just a 3 second clip. !!!

      There’s no wooden building that close to the godswood, and it be Sansa looking in the direction and walking in the direction when she left Baleish last season only the tree is more centered. (based on the large side limbs of the tree).
      Jon’s in WF most like but not near the GW

    17. Grail King,

      Huh? I wasn’t suggesting the Sansa and Jon images are from the same scene. You can see somebody else in the foreground of the Jon image, and based on the hair I’d say that’s Sansa.

    18. Ha, i honestly dont see anything wrong with Sansa’s wig. If it hadnt been mentioned by you guys so much, I wouldnt even have noticed it. Its not that big of deal. I have a feeling Arya will arrive AFTER Jon departs WF. NO way will they meet up this season….they either will meet towards end of Season 8 or never again.

      She probably simply got too close to a candle while writing a letter, they seem quite dark as well. Northern Spa usually has the makeup at 100%. SISTERS, NOT TWINS, DAMMIT!

      Great shots though, Arya on the horse is just badassery defined.

    23. I hate to sound superficial … but I think it’s time for the producers to give Arya a more flattering hairdo! The slicked back look is not suitable for everyone! That girl can look quite pretty and I wish the producers , directors, writers , makeup artists, or whoever… would at least try to give her a more flattering look in season 8 – it’s completely possible for tomboys to look pretty too! /end rant

    27. Little disappointed a picture of Bran wasn’t included in the Stark family shots but maybe they thought his clothes weren’t up to par with the rest lol
      Otherwise pretty cool, teaser shots. Sansa better enjoy the solidarity of the weirwood tree while it lasts as I imagine once Bran gets there his gonna claim that area.

    32. Does anyone see the person that Jon’s talking to appears to be wearing some kind of veil? I see a shadow of something gauzy like trailing down from where the head of the person is. It’s too hard to tell if Sansa’s wig looks good or bad from that pic. Where the hair is pulled back it doesn’t look all that bad, as in not fake. The color is noticeably more of a cooler red tone though. Not sure why they didn’t even out her brows maybe they weren’t thinking people would be capturing stills of the fleeting images in the HBO promos (but they obviously should cause this fandom is notoriously detail oriented.) With Arya, they’re sticking to the tomboy look I see. Maybe as a Stark contrast to her more feminine sister. But I’m not surprised, it’s always been how she’s portrayed.

      Not only part of the family, but I’m very sure he will be the one who finally stops the NK and his army – not Daenerys, not Jon, not anyone else.

      But well, I guess that will have to wait until season 8. I guess this season he won’t have to do a lot…

      These videos always gives us only three new shots and they went with three leading actors in GoT ..
      If it was indeed about stark family thenThe only reason I think they left out bran was he came fourth

      Last year after jon it was bran’s poster that got released first right

    42. I honestly don’t see anything wrong with Sophie’s wig in that picture, I wouldn’t even have known unless I knew from filming spoilers and recent pictures of Sophie with blonde hair. It may be that the showrunners/hair department decided they have to use a wig for Sophie because her own bleached/dyed blonde hair isn’t in good enough a condition to be dyed red. The colour might end up uneven, not the desired colour, not shiny enough etc.

      What a great picture of Arya! It’s probably flipped left to right because she seems to be carrying Needle on her left hip. Left-handers carry their swords on their right hip (easier to draw).

      Love Jon’s KitN look! I also think he’s talking to Sansa.

      Too bad Bran wasn’t included but maybe they didn’t have suitable new material of him yet at this point in the production.

    43. Stannisisdead,

      I can’t deal with you. Stop being an ass. They deliberately picked only Starks for this promo material, and 3 out of 4 of them made the cut. Don’t sit here and pretend that Sansa, Arya, or Jon fans wouldn’t be disappointed if Bran was included and their favorite wasnt. Of course they would be, and for good reason. We get that you’re not a fan and you pretentiously think you’re smarter than those of us who are, but you need to stop being antagonistic in these comment sections for no reason.

      They have as much of a right to express their opinion here as you do… As long as you all follow the rules… And this time, you were the first to insult someone else in this thread. They did not; They only disagreed with you. May I remind you that you can be banned for insulting another user. So, in search for users stirring the pot and breaking the rules (acting like “annoying douche bags” as you put it), perhaps you should look inward instead.

      Stannisisdead,

      That said, “Stannisisdead”; you watch it too. Your words here today were incouous, but half your comments seem specifically designed to provoke certain people.

      Arya’s horse isn’t black, it’s grey. The mane is darker, which is usual for grey horses at some point. Grey horses strat dark and gradually turn lighter until they’re almost white.

      Purpledragon,

      Maybe the pulled-back hairdo isn’t all that flattering on Arya but the point is that it’s the Ned hairdo. She and Jon are both mini-me Neds! 😀

      Mel,

      Are you suggesting Bran wouldn’t let anybody else near the weirwood after he gets back to WF? Why would that be?

      I think they are standing in the courtyard of Winterfell, the same place where we first saw Ned and Catelyn in the first episode of S1, also the same place from where Bran was watching his father and uncle spar last season.

      What we can do is hope that there will be an year ender video and in that we will get to see three different characters that don’t appear on this ..
      That’s why I reminded about bran poster releasing after jon last year ..so he may appear in that year ender video

      You can politely call out whomever you want, but if you act just as annoyingly if not more so, just because someone disagrees with you, maybe there’s a problem there.

      Honestly, forget it, it’s more simple than that: They didn’t insult a user; You did. You can be banned for that. Don’t do it again, or you will be banned.

      Maybe but like I said the disappointment is still valid because there was a clear choice here to make the GOT promo in this about the Starks. Otherwise if they were going off of who’s the main characters then it would be Jon Dany and Tyrion. I’m happy to see all these characters too because I missed them all but it does seem like one was deliberately excluded whether or not its because they had a limit of only 3 images.

      Eeeeeee!!! I just saw the promo.

      Jon: Looking as handsome as ever, lol, and with the gorget under the cloak, he resembles King Robb from S2. Which, okay, isn’t surprising.

      Arya: She may already be wearing the brown outfit she had on in the PAP4U pics from October. And like I said in the previous thread, she looks like she’s ready to join the Night’s Watch in that raggedy black cloak. And looks very much like Jon.

      Sansa: The wig is not working for me. Didn’t like it in the PAP4U pics and still doesn’t look good in “action”.

      Absolutely agree regarding the new Jon outfit; in season six they seemed to be going for the Ned in season one look to reflect Jon rising to being leader in the North, and this year it is Robb in season two to reflect the fact that Jon is now King in the North. He has always felt more of a Stark than anything else, so it is great to see this side of him reflected in the costuming. The costuming on this show is always amazing. This outfit does make him look very much a king.

      Sansa is looking very Catelyn-like in her picture, I think continuing the theme of her taking very much after her mother. I will reserve judgement on the wig until the season starts. I don’t tend to find things like that distracting when watching the show, thankfully. I also think it is Sansa that Jon is talking to in his image – this does appear to take place in Winterfell given what we can see of the set.

      Arya – can see Needle peeking out from under her cloak a little like Longclaw does for Jon. If she goes North, I think this is her finally seeing Winterfell again. She looks incredibly Starky in this picture, costuming/hairstyle again reflecting where the character is in their arc; she is Arya Stark of Winterfell, and has reclaimed her true identity. Agree her overall look also has a Jon-ness about it. And she has the Stark hair – following Jon, Ned and Rickard.

      Overall – as a huge fan of House Stark, I am delighted to see such Stark-centric pics making their way into the world. I would have liked to see a Bran shot included, but given that they are only halfway through filming, they may have considered the shots they already have for him to be too spoilery. Looking forward to the year-end HBO trailer to see if we get some more images!

      Not like that but Bran will probably be with the weirwood tree more than he’ll be in his own bed, sucking up visions about the past and the future and figuring out ways to better fight the WW he won’t actively kick out Sansa but hence no more solidarity for Sansa at the weirwood tree.

      Haha Agree Bran has been wearing the same gear basically since he left winterfell. That’s been for quite a few years, at least in recent seasons Arya has changed it up. Sans a will need to make Bran new clothes before his allowed in a promo shot lol.

      Yeah I hope so too.Give me a shot of Jon and Davos seeing you know what for the first time.God the period between the show ending and Kit being repeatedly spotted in Belfast was the worst.I was like I didn’t wait since 2011 for this bullshit lol.I knew his ass was coming back but I thought what if it happens at the end of season 6 or in season 7.I admit very stupid of me considering how much story he has to cover but it was HBO’s fault for making me think that anyway lol.

      My prediction was end of episode 1 or 2 for the resurrection. They couldn’t wait longer than that and I’m glad. Though I wish they had made episode 1 longer and throw the resurrection at the end haha.

      I wonder if the shot you mentioned will make it in the trailer. Or maybe the trailer will just be 4 minutes of characters dramatically staring off into the distance as someone narrates lmao.

    68. talvikorppi,

      My understanding is that Sophie Turner is naturally blonde though she was sporting a lighter blonde shade than (what I take to be her natural shade) earlier in the year. It think you may have a point about hair condition – after having her hair tinted red for 6 years maybe her hairdresser has advised her not to have it coloured thus for the seventh year in a row. I don’t mind the wig either. I wonder if the apparently short eyebrow has something to do with the way the photograph has been printed. It’s difficult sometimes to know which actresses are sporting their own hair colour these days. In my youth quite a few brunette actresses went blonde but nowadays there seem to be some fair-haired women in the acting profession who colour their hair (or have it coloured) darker. Some people suggested this lady as Lyanna but apparently she’s blonde naturally. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2141997/Eva-Greens-light-roots-spoil-sleek-gothic-style-Dark-Shadows-premiere.html and I don’t know if you are familiar with the show NCIS but it seems that the lady who plays Abbie in that programme is really a blonde – I hadn’t picked up that her hair was coloured. I can be really difficult to know (at least for me) if someone is wearing their natural colour hair or not.

      Jon Snowed:

      HBO have yet to confirm officially. Season six wrapped just over halfway through December last year, and the premiere aired the last Sunday in April; if we take that as a guide for post-production requirements (which I think will be similar even though there will be fewer episodes) then they should complete filming – and therefore begin airing the show – around two months later. Based on that, I would guess at the second half of June. But it is all guesswork at this stage.

    73. I agree about Quentyn, such a pointless character, also the Aerys Oakheart POV just felt very unnecessary. The show gets some criticism at times for not sticking exactly to the books but I feel they did well cutting those characters. Regarding Stoneheart I feel she was cut to make Jon’s resurrection more of a shock, but it will be interesting to see where her character arc leads in the books.

    74. Stannisisdead,

      A bit off-topic, isn’t it? Just in case you’re only here to provoke book purists and start fights (it sometimes seems like it), I must warn you: Don’t.

      Honestly, I never cared for LSH, but it’s not like the two or three pages she appears in are enough to develop an attachment, so who knows; TWOW may surprise me! Either way, since the Brotherhood returned in season six, I’ve been ecstatic she was cut, considering her absence means that we still get to listen to Richard Dormer’s dulcet tones. Whenever Beric Dondarrion opens his mouth, something tingles inside me! Happens with Jorah, too.

      Because of Dormer’s voice and delivery, I still remember Beric’s lines so clearly:

      That’s what we are. Ghosts. Waiting for you in the dark. You can’t see us, but we see you. No matter whose cloak you wear —Lannister, Stark, Baratheon—: You prey on the weak, the Brotherhood Without Banners will hunt you down.

      The Cold wins are rising in the North. […] Good and bad, young and old, the things we’re fighting will destroy them all alike.

    75. Luka Nieto,

      No,i actually just dislike LSH that much but i was reminded of her when someone compared how Sansa looked like Catelyn . As for her role in TWOW,i’m not sure it will be that big otherwise the show would have just included her, i think she will have her meeting with Jaime and Brienne and they are going to somehow escape her and the Brotherhood and then she will die by sacrificing for someone,meh,that doesn’t really sound like such an exciting storyline . Oh and as my name suggests i also wasn’t a big fan of Stannis so i’m glad he is dead,lol .

      Honestly, I think it’s the opposite. The stuff going on south with Dany is too spoilery to tease this early so they’re using a bunch of shots from early episodes/northern scenes so that it still looks vaguely like where we left off last season without giving anything away.

    83. Regarding the lack of Bran it probably is as simple as these shots are from scenes that that do not give away any plot points, and have been shot, edited and completed in time for the release date of the promo, while other scenes shot in the last few weeks are not. Everyone is so ready to get uptight and argue on these comments these days. Its sadly very negative at times 🙁
      Love these pics, Love Arya, Sansa and Jon. I cant wait to see them in context :D:D

        Quote  Reply

    84. Random thoughts hours after first seeing the images: First, I loathe focusing on hair, make-up, cosmetics, and costumes. For such a meaty, multi-layered show they are rather superficial. But crikey–there’s not been much else for us to focus on this Long Winter other than the PAP4U shots and the revelatory leaks from Spain. On GoT, though, even “superficials” are often meaningful.

      Arya’s hairstyle is the one she had at the end of S6E7, when she got knifed by the Waif. I thought then that her new hairstyle, clothing, and uncharacteristic behaviour were her final rejection of No One-ness and reclamation of her Stark-ness. IMO it’s a severe style which isn’t especially flattering to Maisie, who’s so pretty, but bloody hell–it just screams STARK and North! That shot on horseback is a hero shot: it speaks volumes about the homecoming of the formidable, experienced young woman who had left a clever and capable but impulsive little girl.

      Sansa is in darkness and looks odd, slightly sinister. A sliver of light illuminates her right cheek and her eyes are veiled in shadow. Her right shoulder is rather higher than her left. Her perfectly symmetrical face is like a mask, and we can’t read her. Even weirder (wierder) is that tree–the limbs seem about to either strangle her or embrace her. Could it be that as the darker sister is finally coming back to the light the lighter sister is turning to the dark? Oh, show, how you tease us!

      Jon looks Jon-ish, but at least he’s come out of the daze he had when he was acclaimed KITN. He looks at Sansa with a slight bit of skepticism.

      Three quick shots, three seconds. Three-eye Raven will get his own time. Maybe it was fan service, but the fans, especially we Stark diehards, deserve it.

      Yes I can see them going for a Dany vs. Cersei theme for the trailer. We’ll probably get some Euron/Ironborn and Jaime action as well. The Starks (and Jon) I can see having mostly closeups. Maybe we’ll get a shot of Jon fighting wights if we’re lucky…but maybe it’s too spoilery.

    92. Awesome teaser images to get the juices flowing for season 7!! I can’t wait!!

      Honestly, sometimes I don’t know why HBO even bothers trying to please fans anymore. You just can’t please some people in this fandom. HBO gives fans a few teaser images of season 7 and all it turns into is a bunch of complaining and bitching about how Sansa’s eyebrows are not symmetrical enough and that not all Starks are being represented (in a freaking teaser promo). In my experience, most fans are fine, but some people in this fan base this have become way too spoiled and entitled. “Fans” want all kinds of spoilers and information for season 7, but when they get it, they hate everything about it and complain that the story isn’t shaping up exactly the way they personally wanted it to. Just enjoy the ride while it still lasts, especially since there’s only 2 more seasons to go until the end.

    93. Sansa’s hair looks kinda flat and unkempt in the first photo but not terrible. But those hair strands in the last photo with Jon, look an awful lot like the straw-like, fly-away-ish caliber wig poor Margery wore in her send off episode. We shall wait, we shall see.

        Quote  Reply

    94. Purpledragon: I think it’s time for the producers to give Arya a more flattering hairdo! The slicked back look is not suitable for everyone! That girl can look quite pretty

      I think she looks quite good with the ‘Ned style’ (such as in Braavos when she was stabbed). It’s the goofy little-girl-do she had while watching the play that I can’t stand. Luckily we should be done with that since the locale isn’t suitable for that anymore. It would be nice to see her wear it down a bit if she does get back to Winterfell and can chill out a bit, but I have a feeling her story is going to have her in “warrior mode” much of the time.

      Like most I’m assuming this shot of Arya is when she first sets eyes on Winterfell again. It will be very cool, even if different than I imagined. My personal little storyline that I had for her return was that Jon would be there and she’d come disguised as a young man; have him witness him-her do something really cool like embarrassing several men while sparring in training. Then he’d recognize Needle, call her aside and she’d reveal herself to him. He’d probably shit himself.

      I’m always fearful about that too, but frankly judging from Sansa’s sinister image, I think she’d be the one to go. In the karmic sense, it would be appropriate for her to be punished for sloughing off her Stark identity to the point of losing her direwolf and aligning with the Lannisters and eventually that consummate Stark-hater, Littlefinger. Also, I’ve never been able to envisage her having endgame potential. But if gods be good, all the Stark kids will survive to the end.

      As soon as I saw that it’s all I could focus on too. I’d say most GoT watchers did as it’s too similar to not have been modeled after it.

      I’m still forcing my way through the episodes. It’s a fine show and I’m interested in seeing where it goes but it just doesn’t have the draw, the pull that GoT has for me.

      You can notice it really well in his first scene with Tyrion ( when Tyrion tells him to wear his

      To be fair, you’re comparing the small budget they had in the pilot to the big budget they have now. Knowing all the attention the show pays to production value and costumes, it’s not unreasonable to expect some decent wigs and hairstyling.

      There is no point in trying to read emotions into still shots like this. Almost every particular facial expression is part of the range of expressions for multiple (and often very different) moods.

      If it’s her Jon is looking at it could be his decision to either not punish the Karstarks or he’s telling her he’s going to KL, we know through sources

      the KStarks are an issue with her and Lady M, then to say I’m going South the watch is yours would push her angst sky high as she knows full well how that pit is.

And honestly, if that’s all there is to gripe about regarding Season 7 then I’d consider it a success. Game of Thrones staff have been very good with wigs up until now, I love Danaerys’ wig, for example. We’ve just gotten to used to Sansa & her own hair, dyed auburn. I think she’ll be beautiful regardless.

    113. Well, this was a pleasant surprise. Hopefully HBO uses different shots in the year-end rather than just reusing these ones. We’re a long way from Season 7 yet.

      Eh, after Bran’s Season 4 wig, nothing really phases me. Yeah, if that’s Sansa Jon’s speaking with, her hair has definitely seen better days, but Jon’s probably been hogging all of the conditioner since they moved back into Winterfell anyway.

It may look pretty decent, it could be the hairstyle itself that doesn’t look good. Dany is the one with the best hairstyles, Cersei with long hair had pretty good ones too. Now since Sansa has left the south, it’s natural that her hairstyles are gonna be plainer, duller because Northerners have practical hairstyles not fancy ones. The best hairstyle Sansa had last season was probably the side braid, that her mother wore often. It was also quite practical since hair can get frizzy in the snow.

      I agree. I also think that just by a brief glimpse, I like the colour better. I remember in the early seasons she had a rich coppery red, and the past few it’s been almost a fake orangey looking in some lights. This is a nice shade if accurate. Material concerns, really!

      ‘Butchers’ is another example of CRS. A ‘butchers hook’ meaning ‘look’ hehe 😀

      I’m sorry I don’t reply sooner!I had food poisoning this weekend, and it was all I could do to get up to watch WW.I’m happy there is video now though.

      I did take some screenshots- I love that Arya is wearing chain mail under her cloak.She is ready to take names!

      To be honest it looks like leather to me, not chain mail.

      Taking a page out of the return home of Odysseus disguised as an old man. Only his dog, now old, recognizes him. He takes his bow off the wall, strings it as only he can, and slays his enemies.

      Your story should include Ghost recognizes Arya, or she brings Nymeria.

      I keep looking at the shot of Sansa to see what so many are taking issue with, but I’m not seeing it. If I didn’t know it was a wig, I would think twice about her hair. It looks like every other season.

      I don’t get it either. If anything, it makes her look healthier, with thicker hair. She looks great, as usual.

      These pics have me all psyched up again! I’d rather see the long, shaky filming shots than these. The expressions on their faces make me want to hear what they are saying and see what’s happening to them. Such a loooooong wait… [sob]

    125. Am I seeing this right? Sansaerysnow sticks the video behind her Twitter wall–only way to view it is to beg to be one of her followers? Most people get Twitter followers by being interesting, not by paying people to like them. Off with her head–she’s obviously not using it.

      I freaked out too. That’s my favorite poster from the series. I still have it as my wallpaper on my iPhone. I even went to Times Square just to take a pic in front of it. I just knew, just like everyone else, that Jon was going to live again!

    128. Oh wow Arya looks so Lordly

      Really curious about her story this season, eg whether she seeks Jon out when she hears he’s not only alive and well but actually King in the North and the Starks hold Winterfell etc

      Will be curious to see whether Jon takes a crown (Dany too),

      Obviously to go to such lengths there’s a reason why Sansa needs such a presumably expensive wig

      Probably to make her more like Cat. Interested to see her storyline this season, personally reckon in books and show she takes power in RL and Vale

      As a final thought on wigs… I reckon Ayra’s horse is wearing one! That mane just doesn’t look natural? LMAO 😀 😮

    131. Sophie/Sansa looks stunning in this photo! People just have to nitpick, I guess. I think it’s a beautiful tribute to Ned that Arya is styling herself after her father. Jon and Arya have that connection to him. I am hoping beyond hope that they have a reunion this season, but I think D&D will love to see us suffer. My biggest fear is that we never get a Jon/Arya reunion. I wouldn’t put it past their sadistic tendencies.

    132. Am I the only one who notices that Jon (and likely Sansa – judging by the long hair) are standing at the exact same spot where Ned Stark stood when we’re first introduced to him? o_o I didn’t realize this until I watched that Season 1 intro scene again. There are the same wooden posts.

      The FEELS are real.

      Also, I think Sophie still looks stunning. I got no problem with the wig. I’m 35 years old. I’ve seen too many terrible wigs growing up – a time when wigs were so obvious you could still see the original roots of the actor. This is not one of those wigs. Ya’ll need to find Jesus if you’re whining and throwing a big hissy fit over something so subtle.

      She didn’t know he was dead in the first place.If you think about it ,Thorne, Olly and the others where lucky Jon killed them before Arya found out.After what she did to Trant and the Freys ,i don’t even dare to imagine what she would have done to them for hurting her favourite brother!

    135. The thing about complaining about the wigs is that these are things people are nominated for, costumes, hairstyles and makeup. It’s like criticizing the cinematography or praising the soundtrack.

      Michelle Clapton does a fantastic job with the costume design and deserves so many kudos. We praise her consistently.

      But Dany’s wigs (Kevin Alexander? Candice Banks? Not sure who is in control there) have been consistently terrible. That shade of hair color is very difficult to get to look natural (see, Lady Gaga).

      I’m not ready to go full on criticizing Sansa’s wig until I see it in motion on screen, but wearing a wig changes the hairline. To make the wig look like natural hair, it has to come further down on the forehead with netting. It’s changing the shape of Sophie’s face and making her face look rounder. That’s why it’s so noticable.

      If that is Sansa then you’re right, and they are continuing with the sort of Ned/Cat imagery that they used for Jon and Sansa in Season 6.

      The similarities would be undeniable in the staging, camera angles, costumes etc.

      Even the way Jon turns to look at Sansa (?) mimics that scene between Ned and Cat from episode 1.

      I whipped up a quick gif to show how Ned turned to look at Catelyn, with the camera looking over her shoulder – http://imgur.com/a/ZSy3g

      It’s hard to tell how much the producers want us to read into such things, or whether they have simply included such imagery as a nostalgic touch.

      There may come a point where we realise that all this imagery was pointing in an obvious direction, or it may all turn out to be meaningless.

      But with all this mimicry going on, it should be remembered that Cat begged Ned not to go south with Robert. Ned argued that he had no choice, and that honour compelled him to leave Winterfell. And Ned leaving Winterfell precipitated disaster for House Stark.

      Could history end up repeating itself? Is that what all this imagery could come to signify?

    137. I watched BotB again last night and also looking at images of Sansa from that episode… I don’t think the wig looks all that different or any worse than her hair last season. This screenshot from a split second is not a very good image of her with the pouty mouth and chubby cheek expression.

      Well, my prediction is that Little Finger is going to come between Jon and Sansa… so I don’t see why she would beg him not to go.

      And, why would Jon go south anyway? If anyone knows where the real problem is, its Jon, and he knows its north.

        Quote  Reply

    139. Dee Stark,

      Littlefinger may try to come between Jon and Sansa, but I don’t think she will initially be as susceptible to his manipulation as she once was.

      And considering all the years she spent on her own among strangers, with nobody she could rely on, I doubt she’d be particularly happy to see Jon desert her moments after they recaptured Winterfell.

      Jon ignoring her concerns and running off to save the world could even provide the opening for Littlefinger to drive a wedge between them. Littlefinger might even play some role in prompting Jon to leave Winterfell for a time, leaving Sansa at his mercy.

      Why would Jon head south?

      Well, he needs men and support for the war with the White Walkers. He can’t just sit at Winterfell sending ravens and hoping that people will rally to his cause by the time the Wall falls.

      And if he sits by and does nothing while Cersei and the Lannisters take control of the rest of the Seven Kingdoms then he can forget about ever rallying enough support to win the war.

      Moreover, I just don’t see enough potential for drama in Jon staying in the North all season.

      Hmmm that’s a good point.
      I didn’t think of it that way. I actually thought of it more as LF will be able to get to Sansa at first, and then she will realize what he is doing and she will snap out of it.

      Also, good point on sansa probably not happy with jon leaving especially because he said he would always protect it.
      One of my predictions was that LF knows that Jon is not Ned’s son. I think therefore he will try to use this against him with Sansa.

      Very true as well… I didn’t think he would just sit there at Winterfell, but I figured that he wouldn’t leave winterfell until closer to the end of the season, coinciding with the fallen wall. But you make a good point about letting the Lannisters do as they please.

      I also forgot that Dany will be in Westeros when season 7 starts… I wonder if he will hear about that, and what that will mean to him (Jon’s true parentage aside) in terms of the great war…. I mean she does have three dragons

      Wow all this talk has got me so damn hyped up. I mean, thinking of all the stories and where they are, and where they could possible go is amazing….

    142. Dee Stark,
      Countless times. Sunday night during the season I always watch the episode 2.5-3 times (first and second airing plus an HBO Go watch in the middle). Then with most episodes I’ll watch it around 4-5 more times during the week until the next episode. After the season I don’t usually watch entire episodes but periodically I’ll pull up episodes with my favorite scene(s) and skip through slow parts (i.e. High Sparrow scenes). Once the blu-ray set is released I watch the season beginning to end again… which is why I’ve watched it so much recently. 🙂

      During the season I watch the episode live, and then I do a rewatch right before the next episode airs on the next sunday….

      I usually watch random scenes I like, random episodes I liked once in a while… like once, I couldn’t think of a movie to watch and didn’t have a show going so I watched Hardhome. I have YET to do that with season six because I have been trying to catch up on black sails.

      I always do a full series rewatch before every season.

      A bad wig can take people out of the story/show, it can be jarring. I don’t think anyone is claiming the show is ruined simply due to the wig, but if Dany fucked Jon then put on a Stark polo shirt it would be like, uh, sick medieval polo.

      Ditto

      Some people couldn’t tell Bran had a wig during S4 (don’t remember if he had it in 3), but for some of us it’s very apparent. Like I said in my last reply though, it’s not a huge ding to the show, it’s just for some viewers it takes us out of the story seeing her noticeably larger head due to the wig.

      I question the point in-which she decided to keep it natural, but I suppose she has many more opportunities acting-wise at this point and she doesn’t want to be limited to fire-crotch characters like Jean.

      It’s not a huge deal to me, but it’s important to understand it is noticeable and diminishing to the story for some due to it being so jarring.

    149. For a whole host of reasons, people focus on different facial features when they look at someone. Some focus on eyes, lips, noses, cheekbones, etc. If someone focuses on hair or hairlines as a dominant facial feature, wigs are going to be more apparent.

      So when someone says, “I didn’t notice so-and-so was wearing a wig,” it’s not that they aren’t observant. It’s that their focus is on observing a different feature. They may focus on the very small gap between Lena Headey’s front teeth or Peter Dinklage’s enormous eyebrows.

      People who are noticing the wigs are also probably noticing that Kit Harington has a weird half-widow’s peak. The people who notice Lena’s tiny gap can also tell you that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s bottom front teeth are crooked.

      Just because someone focuses on different facial features doesn’t mean they are nitpicking, especially when that feature pulls them out of the show and character, like a bad wig or visible contact lenses.

      So yeah, if I notice the wigs, it’s because my methods of facial recognition are different than yours.

      I’m not sure she’s that naturally blonde, probably a lot brighter than her natural hair but she dyed it for a film coming out next year “Huntsville” where she needed to be blonde and have tattoo’s (she posted the pic on her IG of her character Josie not long before the Emmy’s) and probably decided she missed having blonde hair.
