Multiple rumors and speculations have lined up just ahead of the premiere of 'Game of Thrones' season 7. Fans are going crazy over anticipating what to expect in the upcoming season. It’s a rather difficult task to predict the future of the storyline, especially given George R. R. Martin’s nature to surprise its fans with the worst kind of situations in the battle drama series. However, this doesn’t stop the speculations to be following in. Let’s take a closer look at how exactly to prepare ourselves for the upcoming season of ‘Game of Thrones.’

Fate of the characters

According to several reports published online, the only surviving member of Tyrell family, Olenna Tyrell, is expected to die in the upcoming season.

Cersei Lannister will only wait for some time until she decides to eliminate the last surviving member of the Tyrell family. In fact, an online report by Business Insider claims that Tyrell matriarch will be seen playing an important role in the upcoming season. Therefore, it remains unclear whether the Tyrell legacy will last or not in the seventh season of ‘Game of Thrones.’ Apart from this, Greyjoys will also be seen contributing much to the storyline in the upcoming season.

Yara Greyjoy is going to be seen undertaking an important and powerful role against the enemies. Moreover, the recently-launched official 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 trailer also indicated a possible steamy-situation between Yara and Ellaria.

Then again, if they do end up eliminating either one of the characters (which is highly possible), then there won’t be any steam or excitement left.

As was revealed in the previous sixth season, Melisandre was seen resurrecting Jon Snow to life. She later went on to even finally showcase her true form. It didn’t take long for Jon Snow to banish her.

After being banished, many might think that she does not have such an important role in the storyline and it seems like the recent report by The Telegraph agrees with the same.

Enemies will collide in Season 7

The Mountain, or Ser Robert, is perhaps among the most dreadful characters in the entire 'Game of Thrones' series. According to several reports, the character is going to be seen coming face-to-face with his arch-enemy, The Hound a.k.a. Sandor. It will be another interesting clash between the most powerful characters in the entire series. Season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' is expected to air on July 16th on HBO.
