New Game of Thrones Video Sparks Reunion Theories
It has been ages since Game of Thrones last went off the air and fans have been desperate for anything of substance. HBO's very slow drip-feed of news will have to do to satiate the appetite of these ravenous fans.
A new video has surfaced giving us precious seconds to dissect and scrutinize. Naturally, as the Internet is want to do, every frame has been analyzed to death.
"A Story in Cloth", documents the work that goes into the costume design of the show, and with it have come numerous fan theories about the different circumstances of the characters in the season seven. And some of them have big implications.
There isn't much footage here, but there is enough to surmise certain key details about the upcoming season.
At 2:52 in the video we can see Arya Stark has returned to Westeros with her trusty sword, Needle at her side.
Now just a few frames later we can see Sansa Stark in Winterfell's crypt which is nothing out of the ordinary. However, if you take a closer look at the crew member behind Sansa, it appears she is holding what looks like Needle! It's hard to discern whether or not this truly is Needle, but the hilt looks remarkably similar.
So could this mean that the Stark sisters will finally reunite? Where Arya goes, Needle follows. Her attachment to the sword is what prevented her from truly becoming No One at the House of Black and White. It is also possible that the two locations are next to each other and the crew could be moving props back and forth. But it's definitely an intriguing theory.
Could Jon also get in on the Stark family reunion? Or is he somewhere else?
Another shot shows Cersei Lannister face to face with Ellaria Sand of Dorne. The newly crowned Queen has Ellaria in chains following her plot with Olenna Tyrell. Cersei is imposing her will with the silent giant, Ser Robert Strong in the background.
The Hound, Sandor Clegane is shown playing with some snow off-camera. He wasn't in the season seven trailer so it's good to see he's back for certain. There is nothing to base this off, but I'm wondering if he is on a collision course with his older brother for a Hound v. Mountain rematch. The Game of Thrones' Thrilla in Manila.
We won't have to wait too much longer to find out. Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres July 16.
