HBO has officially released a big batch of photos from the new episode of Game of Thrones, the fourth of the seventh season. The episode will be titled “The Spoils of War,” but will it be literal or figurative? Let’s have a look!
The photos reveal a few spoilers when it comes to Dragonstone. We can see that Jon and Davos are still moving freely on the island, and appear to be part of Dany’s group standing on the beach looking at something.
The next two photos reveal who is arriving ashore and who Dany’s group is most likely looking at- it’s the Ironmen, with Theon! He’s survived his journey back to Dragonstone intact (more or less). But will they welcome him happily?
Not only is this a return to Daenerys’ fold for Theon, this should make for an intense reunion for him and Jon Snow. The two haven’t seen one another for years- and that was before Theon made people believe he killed Jon’s two younger brothers and took Winterfell.
In King’s Landing, Cersei is showing off her beautiful new map to Tycho Nestoris (guest star Mark Gatiss) of the Iron Bank. She told the banker that she has a plan to pay him back. I’m guessing she’s not just bragging about the decor- she’s letting him know her payment plan, and it just might involve the episode title.
Last week we saw him in Highgarden. In the new episode, we see Jaime is still on the road with Bronn and in armor, so he’s probably traveling back from Highgarden. What are they seeing? Whatever it is, it’s not good.
At Winterfell, Littlefinger lurks, overlooking the courtyard, his favorite place of late.
And here we see Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne down in the courtyard. Is Littlefinger gazing down at them or is that a misdirect? It’s snowing in both images, increasing the likelihood of these being from the same scene.
It doesn’t seem to be snowing in the godswood though, where Sansa stands, looking at something. Is she back with Bran again? Last week they had a terrible moment in the godswood just after their reunion; I’d hate to see that become a weekly thing.
