HBO releases Game of Thrones season 7 episode titles and synopses, and hoo boy are they spoiler-y

In preparation for the debut of Game of Thrones season 7 on July 16, HBO has released the official titles and synopses for the first three episodes. It should go without saying, but vague as these descriptions are, there are most definitely SPOILERS AHEAD.

I'm going to put the trailer below so that you have one last barrier keeping you from ruining any possible surprises. Beyond that, read on at your own risk:

S7, E1: Dragonstone

"Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home."

S7, E2: Stormborn

"Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros."

S7, E3: The Queen's Justice

"Daenerys holds court. Cersei returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes."

So all in all, we know that Dany will be establishing a base of operations, Jon will be fending off (yet another) coup, and it certainly sounds like Cersei and Jaime will kiss (or something more physical) and make up. I admit the thing I'm most curious about is the title for episode 3. Cersei is currently the ruling queen, but Dany is a queen in her own right. So which of them is meting out the "justice" in question? It'll be interesting to find out.
