The moment that Game of Thrones fans have been waiting for is here: Daenerys arriving in Westeros ready to take the Iron Throne. The seventh season of the HBO fantasy/drama is going to be the first season that Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will step foot on the land that has been plagued with war between Lannisters, Starks, Baratheons, Tyrells, Martells, Boltons, Greyjoys, White Walkers and everything in between.
Of course, the Mother of Dragons arriving in Westeros will only add more chaos into the mix of war that is already going to be shaken up by the impending White Walker assault led by the Night King, which Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the rest of the North is in direct striking distance from, but isn’t even on the mind of those living in the South yet.
Now, fans can finally see the epic moment Daenerys arrives in Westeros after her journey across the Narrow Sea aligned with the Tyrells, the Sand Snakes, Theon and Yara Greyjoy (Alfie Allen and Gemma Whelan, respectively), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill). In the photo released by TIME, we can see Daenerys, Tyrion, Varys and Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) with possibly Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) rowing the crowded boat onto shore. We also can see all three of Dany’s dragons Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion flying towards Westeros in the background of the shot, as well as her huge fleet. Here is a look at the photo:
We know from the Game of Thrones season 7 trailer that Dany is going be landing and setting up her base at Dragonstone, the original seat of House Targaryen before they fled from Westeros and the castle where Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) lived before attempting to claim the Iron Throne for himself.
Since the plot of the seventh season of Game of Thrones has been kept under lock and key from fans, we can only speculate what Dany is going to do now that she has reached Dragonstone. Some believe that she may team up with Jon Snow while at the castle (due to some leaked photos) and help him in the great war against the White Walkers or she might make a beeline straight for the Iron Throne and take it from under Queen Cersei’s (Lena Headey) grasp. Either way, just seeing Dany finally in Westeros is going to be exciting no matter what choices she makes when she lands on that beach.
Game of Thrones returns for season 7 on July 16th.
