Thereâ€™s nothing like a solid build-up. For six straight seasons, Game of Thrones has been an exercise in building up tension. Sure, there have been plenty of big events that have helped release some of the strain between the main players â€” we had the Battle of Blackwater, The Red Wedding, the Purple Wedding, Battle of the Bastards, and countless other events. However, itâ€™s all been building towards these last two seasons, which will see a clash between all the powers in the Seven Kingdoms â€” and the inevitable clash between the Seven Kingdoms and the enemy to the North.
The showrunners have been teasing for some time that these next two seasons will be a lot different from the others. While theyâ€™ve mostly been world-building, and now weâ€™re at the point where the payoffs need to start rolling in. This brand new trailer for Season 7 looks like it has that very mindset going in, and we canâ€™t be more thrilled based on what itâ€™s shown.

If youâ€™re one of those folks who loves the mythology behind Game of Thrones, but felt that the action itself was lacking, this may be the season for you. Gone is the slow pacing of previous seasons, and what weâ€™re left with seems to be a series of climaxes fitting of an epic tale like this. But while the payoffs seem to be rolling in, donâ€™t feel like the emotional resonance will be lacking. This season also looks to be packing an emotional punch based on its thematic power alone.
â€œFor centuries our families fought together against their common enemy,â€ Jon Snow says in the trailer. â€œDespite their differences, together. We need to do the same if weâ€™re going to survive because the enemy is real. Itâ€™s always been real.â€
This is it, folks. The end is fast approaching.
Winter is here.
