GAME OF THRONES may have accidentally let slip some huge season seven spoilers in a new trailer for US broadcaster HBO.
The brief clip, presented by John Oliver, finally shares a glimpse of the key players of Westeros in their new costumes, which, in turn, reveals who will be buddying up to who when the three rival thrones confront each other in war.
However, all three of the remaining Stark children – made up of Jon Snow, Sansa and Bran Stark – are all snuggled up in their finest Winterfell furs, suggesting they will almost certainly be reunited when the fantasy epic finally arrives this summer.
What’s more, Daenerys and her advisors Tyrion and Missandei are all decked out in intriguingly dark vests – a complete contrast to the ethereal white attire normally sported by the Dragon Queen and her minions.
Sadly, the cast have remained frustratingly tight-lipped about the looming cycle ahead, with Jamie Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau having to stop himself from dropping a huge clue in a recent interview with the Daily Beast.
“He’s not like his sister and brother, but he’s been on the battlefield his whole life, and knows about people’s weaknesses and loving someone unconditionally because he loves his sister unconditionally,” he explained of Jaime’s incestuous relationship with Queen Cersei.
“Plus, there are no other suitors. Well, that’s not true… but he has to step up and take his father’s place. Wow, I was about to reveal something from season 7 and thought, ‘What am I doing?’.”
Though, Iain Glenn, who stars as Ser Jorah Mormont, was less cautious about his character, who is currently battling a crippling illness called greyscale, and hinted the warrior will have a brighter future in the HBO drama than fans may have expected.
“I’ve always enjoyed playing Jorah. It’s been a role that’s been good to me so far,” he told fan site Winter Is Coming. “There’s quite a high death count in Game of Thrones and they don’t blanch at removing favourite characters.
“They just get rid of them in a brutal way. My end may well be close but so far I’m doing okay.”
Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic on Monday, July 16.
