It looks like audiences around the world will need to prepare for a Daenerys-driven start to the season with the biggest piece of info divulged being the fact that we will finally get to witness the long-awaited arrival of Daenerys in Dragonstone- the ancestral home of the Targaryen’s which had since been taken over and deserted by Stannis Baratheon.
Many have been speculating over what “gift” Cersei will be returning, it may be Joffrey’s sword Widow’s Wail, which many users on Reddit have speculated adorns Jaime’s belt during the teaser trailer.
Might we see the return of Jorah Mormont in the form of an “unexpected visitor” and how far as he fallen to the Greyscale that we last saw plaguing him?
Soon enough, all of our eager questions will be answered, but for now, pray to the old gods and the new that this week doesn’t last as long as the night’s watch.
