Will Dany Have A Revolt On Her Hands?
Game of Thrones is keeping most information for the second episode of Game of Thrones season 7 under wraps. However, we do have a few photos and an episode synopsis:
"Daenerys has a surprise visitor; Jon faces a revolt; Tyrion draws up plans to conquer Westeros."
Although the plot summary is...ok, semi-telling, one of the photos shared sparks more speculation.
In this new picture, we see Daenerys surrounded by her team: Tyrion, Yara Greyjoy, and, perhaps most notably, Ellaria Sand. The leader of the Sand Snakes is the newest addition to Dany's crew and her arrival could spark a potentially explosive confrontation: what will happen when Tyrion and Ellaria meet again?
The two have plenty of reasons not to get along. Tyrion, although disowned by his family, is still a Lannister, a sworn enemy of the Martells. He's also not-so-indirectly responsible for her lover, Oberyn's death, as Oberyn was fighting the Mountain in Tyrion's trial by combat when he got killed in a rather unpleasant manner.
Tyrion, on the other hand, is probably not the biggest fan of Ellaria, as she was the one behind the murder of his niece, Myrcella, for whom he actually appeared to hold affection.
This confrontation is definitely going to be tense at best, as the two have not seen each other for several seasons.
Meanwhile, it appears another rough meeting will occur in the North between Jon and Littlefinger for the first time. Like Ellaria and Tyrion, the two have plenty of reasons to despise each other, as Baelish is turning Sansa against Jon.
Look forward to these two not-so-friendly encounters on Sunday.
