Season 7 was a success

Meanwhile, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen were intimate with each other. Neither of them is aware of Snow’s true identity. Bran Stark did the honors of revealing Snow’s identity. He confirmed that his parents, Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen had actually gotten married. This makes Snow the legitimate heir of the Iron Throne.

It was also revealed that Cersei Lannister plans on betraying Jon Snow and Daenerys. At the same time, Jaime Lannister is not willing to be a part of this plan. Tyrion Lannister is also rumored to betray Dany. It remains to be seen what exactly takes place next. The filming will wrap up in summer next year and the post-production procedures will begin. Director Michel Sapochnik will reprise his duty as the showrunner for this season.
