Spoilers for ~the future~ episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’.
HBO has released the official pics for next week’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ episode, ‘The Queen’s Justice‘, and it teases a little more about what’s to come.
“Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.”
Now the officially released pics tell us a little bit more about what’s going down.
We’ve already seen this shot in the trailer. Still, let’s all just take a moment to appreciate Kit Harrington‘s face. He also doesn’t look wildly impressed with Daenerys, for whatever reason.
Last week, Daenerys told Tyrion to write to Jon and invite him to “bend the knee”. But as the recently released letters by HBO show, he did no such thing, instead inviting Jon to “join us” to end Cersei’s tyranny.
Varys, once the slipperiest man in all of King’s Landing, is quickly proving himself to be a straight shooter (kinda), when in the right environment. Now that he and Daenerys have hashed out their problems, he’s back to providing council.
How good does her dragon chain look. Girl, get it.
This could be… interesting. Varys loathes and fears magic, which saw him brutalised as a boy. Now he has to contend with another Red Priestess, and one whom his Queen is already warming to since finding out she, Daenerys, could be the princess who was promised. It also looks like Melisandre might still be around when Jon and Davos turn up – an interesting power move, given she was recently banished for burning an innocent child at the stake.
If you squint, you can see that’s two direwolves on his chest, his King in the North insignia.
Grey Worm is getting ready for battle, with a three-headed dragon on his chest. Honestly though, where does anyone find the time to make these things?
Here’s the trailer again, if you’re counting down the days.
