The Bad News
There are going to be only 13 episodes in total which will be spread across two small seasons now. HBO confirmed that season 7 would showcase only seven episodes. Alas!
The Good News
The season finale will take place somewhere in August, will probably start at the time of the bank holiday weekend in the US.
Also, there are rumors that Arya and Nymeria will reunite in season 7. Well, if you do not remember Nymeria, let us help you with that. She was Arya Stark’s dire wolf. The wolf was seen last time in season 1, episode 2 when Arya forced Nymeria to run away fearing Joffrey would kill her for attacking him.

The Terrifying News
We happily bid adieu to one of the most detestable villains in Westeros, David Bradley’s Walder Frey in season 6 hoping that we are not going to see him anytime soon. But Watchers on the Wall has revealed that this gruesome baddie might show in the upcoming season. According to one of the theories, Walder Frey’s resurrection has something to do with Arya Stark’s ability to take up faces of the dead.

The Gay News

However, it is not the first time that GOT would show same-sex frissons, but all that happened in brothels. We already encountered the compassionate relationship between the homosexuals, Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell in season 5.
Ice, Ice Baby
Most of the scenes of the new season are filmed on the icy sets at Wolf Hill Quarry near Belfast as these settings were probably supplementing Iceland’s beautiful natural backdrops. Get ready to see more blues and whites. However, some a Twitter user posted a picture of her brother with Jon Snow in Iceland. Though, no one revealed what Kit Harington was doing there.
