Filming for Game of Thrones season 7 is well underway and there are rumours that the season finale, being filmed in Seville, will include several shock meetings and battles. Possible spoilers within so skip the Hodor if you want to see them.
WatchersOnTheWall are reporting that director Jeremy Podeswa, who is directing both the season premiere AND the finale has arrived in southern Spain (as confirmed on his Facebook page). This would be exciting enough on its own but, wait, there’s more! A who’s who of Game of Thrones actors have been spotted in Seville: everyone from Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) and Danerys (Emilia Clarke). There could only be one reason why they’re all gathering in one place - it’s going to be one hell of a finale as we go full-speed ahead towards Game of Thrones’ endgame.
It might be easier if we list who isn't in Seville for filming. Alongside Jon Snow, Cersei and Danerys, we have sightings of Theon, The Hound, Pod, Varys and Jorah. Jon Snow and Dany are sharing a meal below- but will they be sharing a scene in the finale?
Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) has also been seen in Seville. Will the Greyjoys be taking the Iron Throne?
And here's everyone's favourite squire, Pod (Daniel Portman)
Queen Cersei would have my head if I missed her out (and, look, Varys is there too!):
The Hound has come back to King's Landing? Hold me.
What does that mean for the future of Westeros? We know The Hound has unfinished business with his brother The Mountain, and Theon has formed an alliance with Danerys. When combined with Jon Snow rolling into King's Landing, we could be in store for the most explosive episode of Game of Thrones ever.
And that’s still not everything! Set photos show a literal army-load of Lannister armour being readied. Who, or what, are the Lannisters going to be fighting against? And what does that have to do with the potential arrival of Dany and Jon Snow in King’s Landing? Either way, the Lannisters are ready for action.
Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere slightly later than normal in 2017 so we have an even longer wait to see if our Westeros-related hopes and dreams finally come true- but this news will help see us through the coming winter and beyond. But, please, don’t mention Dorne.
