Yesterday HBO did this thing where they melted a block of ice on Facebook Live to reveal the premiere date for season seven of Game of Thrones: July 16. Then they released the first teaser which has no footage. It’s mostly old dialogue and sigil graphics— I love the look of the sigils and the way they crumble like volcanic ash. Full Story

If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t like to know anything about Game of Thrones while it’s filming, then this post is not for you. There are set photos, they’re not especially spoilery but they do show people standing together in ways suggestive of Important Things Happening, so if you’re spoiler-sensitive, bow out now. Full Story

We’re done with Westeros for another year, and all that’s left is to pick over the bones of the season that was. Mostly this means trying to figure out what Jon Snow’s Targaryen name is—Lyanna Stark definitely said it to Young Ned, but it’s impossible to hear clearly—and taking odds on who will kill Cersei first: The Tyrell/Targaryen/Sand alliance, a popular revolt led by the people of King’s Landing, or, in a surprise twist, Jaime!

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 10 recap SPOILERS This season has seen women seize power across Westeros, and in the finale, Cersei herself takes the Iron Throne. It cost her everything to achieve, but in the end, she is in charge once again.

I was feeling pretty good about Game of Thrones going into finale week until Lainey put a bug in my ear about Littlefinger becoming the new big bad—now that Ramsay Bolton is gone—and I’ve spent all week trying to break down the odds of that happening. After saving Jon Snow’s ass during the Battle of the Bastards, the Starks are now indebted to Littlefinger, so he’s got some leverage against them. Full Story
