And the Season 7 finale reportedly ends with the ice dragon breaking through The Wall, and the White Walkers and the Night King heading south. It has been confirmed that the season 7 finale will be longer than ever at 81 minutes. In any case, the fans should finally have the moment that they wait so much, since Jon and Dany apparently go to sleep together, if we believe the leaks.
Thanks to the shortened episode count this year, Game of Thrones is ending after just seven weeks and we're not happy about it. It's going to be substantial in a big, lasting way. Winter is here, bitches!
Several plot points are expected to be tied up - from Jon Snow and Daenerys Tarygaryen's subtle (and questionable) romance, to the iciness between sisters Sansa and Arya Stark; a reunion (and brawl) between brothers The Hound and The Mountain, and whether or not Cersei Lannister's pregnancy is real. Either way, something is going down at Winterfell tonight. If history is any indiction, this won't be a smooth transition, especially if they find out their new queen basically left Jon for dead, even though she didn't have much of a choice, given that she was one dragon down and the Night King had set his sights on torpedoing the one that was supposed to carry the rest of them safely out of the frozen terror. First of all, there's the prophecy that predicted she would have three children who would all die, which has already come to pass. This should not put her in the best moods.
According to Mashable on Friday, the hacking group which stole approximately 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO have released, what they call, a sixth wave of leaks that contain confidential plot summaries and details of how the season will end. So fans think it's just a matter of time before his TV counterpart does the same. Will their coupling result in a Targaryen baby, like everyone seems to think it will? I mean, after seeing what he did last week to the dragon and how many men he has fighting for him, that's not exactly an easy decision.
