Game of Thrones Season 7

Photos : 12 Battles we want to see on Game of Thrones Season 7

Game of Thrones Season 7 – Winter is coming in Game of Thrones’ Season 7, culminating in the final battle for Westeros between the human forces of the Seven Kingdoms and the supernatural White Walkers and their fearsome Night King. Even though that final clash is set – both in the upcoming books and in HBO’s TV series Seasons 7 and 8 – there’s still plenty of time for scheming, sex, and murder in the meantime, and a slew of battles big and small scale to set the stage.

Battles and conflict are the lifeblood of GoT and this past season on HBO has been unique. For the first time, the TV series has outstripped the story line of the books, leaving producers to come up with their own twists and turns. The HBO series has already deviated from the plot of A Song of Fire and Ice, the novel series by George R.R. Martin, but essentially within the same parameters. Now, as fans wait for both the next book in the series and Season 7, speculation is running high.

After the explosive developments that ended Season 6, where can the show go next? Jon Snow and Cersei are both newly installed on their thrones – but can they hope to actually stay there? Dany and the dragons are on the way, and all the other royal houses of Westeros have gone through their own turmoil, with some – like the Baratheons – decimated in the process. Or are they really…?

In the world of Westeros, there is always a wild card at play. It’s a place where old grudges compete with new grudges, and murderous ambition is never far from the surface. Here’s a look at battles we’d like to see on screen, including the many ways much hated Queen Cersei might get hers.

12. Euron Greyjoy vs. Yara and Theon Greyjoy

Euron Greyjoy emerged in Season 6 as one of the more interesting characters. He’s got a ruthless streak a mile wide – what else is new in Westeros – is commander of the Ironborn and also of the Silence, a ship manned by sailors who can’t speak because he’s cut out their tongues.

After killing Yara and Theon’s father, Euron’s plan was to wangle his way into Dany’s bed and a shot at ruling it all. But, Yara and her brother scuttled those plans by stealing his ships and sailing off to make their own overtures to Daenerys. At the end of Season 6, he was calling for trees to be felled to build him more ships.

Now, in real life, that would take some time, but in HBO-land, he could be sailing the high seas tomorrow in a quest to catch up with his runaway niece and nephew, and while they’re fleeing him at the moment, Yara wants revenge for the slaughter of her father, turning this one into a poisonous family grudge match.

There are rumors on the Season 7 sets of a battle at sea, meaning we may actually see this one coming up in 2017.
