#Game of Thrones#Season 7 is exactly three months away, but the anticipation for the new season is brewing, and with a teaser being released, the show’s return seems closer than ever. In season 6, the show concluded with Daenerys Targaryen setting sail to Westeros with a gigantic army alongside her. Daenerys allied with the Greyjoys, Martells, and Tyrells and also has The Unsullied and her dragons in her arsenal. Up north, Jon Snow regained control of Winterfell and was pronounced the King in the North. We also found out, through Brandon Stark’s visions, that Jon is a Targaryen.

Meanwhile, Samwell Tarly went to Braavos library to educate himself about something that should be key to defeating the White Walkers.

Down south, Cersei Lannister was crowned Queen after her son King Tommen Baratheon committed suicide. Lastly, Arya Stark avenged her brother, Rob Stark, by maliciously killing Walder Frey. Season 6’s finale tied everything up nicely, which will make the transition into season 7 very smooth.

What’s next for Jon Snow?

Now that Jon Snow has been named King in the North and has united everyone in the northern area, it is time for him to avenge Ned Stark’s death. With Tormund and the Wildlings also on his side, Jon is likely to travel south to murder the Lannisters. However, before he does all that, Winterfell will see the return of Arya, Brandon, and Benjen Stark. Eventually, Jon will discover that he is Targaryen, but being raised as a Stark, he will not go after the crown and will be more interested in avenging his “father’s” death.

Daenerys will ask for Jon’s help

Although she is fully equipped to battle the Lannisters now to retain the throne, Daenerys may still look for more help and will turn to Jon Snow. Finding out that she and Jon are related, the two will team up due to the mutual interest of destroying the Lannisters but with different motives. Ultimately, it will become the entire world versus the Lannisters and King’s Landing.

The big war with the White Walkers

After getting rid of the evil Lannisters and being crowned Queen, Daenerys and the rest of the world will have to deal with the one real war, the massive battle with the White Walkers. This is where Sam Tarly will become a major character. At the end of season 6, Sam went to an enormous library to study. Since he is the first person to kill a White Walker with dragon glass, Sam is perhaps going to study how to make dragon glass or Valyrian Steel, which also kills White Walkers. The White Walkers have a massive army, which is going to require unity from everyone living south of the wall to take them down.

The show will probably conclude with an epic all-out war against the White Walkers, and many will die.

Tyrion is a Targaryen

There is a major fan theory going around that Tyrion Lannister is Targaryen. There have been many unnoticed clues that could prove this theory to be true. First of all, Tywin Lannister was always cruel to Tyrion, telling him that he is not his son on multiple occasions. Secondly, Aerys Targaryen, the Mad King, was apparently obsessed with Joanna Lannister, Tywin’s wife. There is a great chance that he and Joanna had a fling together, which resulted in creating Tyrion. Lastly, Tyrion survived contact with greyscale, but Jorah Mormont did not. That was a bit unusual because Tyrion was the one who was sucked in by the greyscale men, but he must be immune to the disease because he is a Targaryen.

These are brief predictions about the main storylines that will take place in seasons 7 and 8. It is going to be a definitive conclusion to a fascinating show, and despite having fewer episodes in the final two seasons, there is going to be so much that happens. “Game of Thrones” season 7 will premiere July 16.
