A new batch of images has arrived for the season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones that will air this Sunday. With the new season of Game of Thrones right around the corner, marketing has begun to ramp up. So far, HBO has released two trailers that offer a lot of hints as to what's on the horizon. From dragons and Dothraki invading Westeros to the possible reunion of all the living Stark children, there will be a lot to unpack in just seven episodes.
Along with the trailers, we've also been given a number of looks at the new season of Game of Thrones thanks to photos from the show. Last month, some season 7 photos teased characters like Davos and Beric Dondarion arriving in the North to help confront the threat of the White Walkers. More recently, we got a look at Dany's new throne room on Dragonstone, where she'll be launching her offensive. Now, a set of images shows the different characters and story threads that will come together in the season 7 premiere.
HBO has now released several additional photos from the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere. While previous images haven't been given any context, these screenshots clue us into what to expect this Sunday when the show returns.

Mostly, the images just offer new angles of things we've seen in previous set photos and in the trailers. Their connection to the first episode of the new season, however, helps highlight the action we'll soon be seeing. For one, it looks as if Cersei's impressive new map will feature right from the get-go. We'll also be getting more of fan-favorite Lyanna Mormont. as Winterfell seems to prominently factor in the season 7 premiere. Along with the shot of Lyanna, we see Brienne and Pod practicing in the yard at Winterfell - or perhaps coming to blows over something real.
In addition, Mera takes center-stage in one image that also appears to be at the Stark castle. We know that Meera and Bran will continue their journey through the North, thanks to previously-released Game of Thrones season 7 images. Assuming their trek is set before this shot, it could indicate Bran will also be returning to Winterfell after having left so long ago. Either that or the two will get separated at some point. Whatever the case is, we won't have to wait much longer to find out.
Game of Thrones season 7 premieres on HBO this Sunday, July 16, at 9 pm.
