Winter is no longer coming on Game of Thrones
. According to a recently released trailer, it is already here. HBO has released a new teaser trailer on their official YouTube page
of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones
season 7. While the teaser doesn't show anything in the way of new footage from the season, as everything was filmed specifically for this promo, it does drop major hints of what is about to occur in the penultimate season.

The promo, which is titled "Long Walk," sees the three ruling monarchs of Westeros walking towards their respective thrones. Cersei Lannister is heading toward the Iron Throne. Jon Snow (or Stark / Targaryen depending on your perspective) is walking into the main hall of Winterfell and Daenerys Targaryen is walking towards some throne that has never been seen before now.
The most popular theory, based on the surroundings, is that Dany has landed on Dragonstone, the castle which was Stannis Baratheon's home and is located on an island very close to King's Landing. If true, this could mean the war between Cersei and Dany is going to happen much sooner than anyone expects. Dany could have King's Landing under her control before Jon even starts to come down from the North.
The final moments suggest that the all but imminent war between these rulers will be meaningless, however. Cersei Lannister breathes out a dramatic breath and all we see is the chilly air. The trailer then offers an extreme close-up of a Whiter Walker's eye, suggesting that season 7 will finally see the White Walkers invade Westeros. Game of Thrones
did have to delay filming, after all, so that all of their locations would have a wintertime look to them.
So what do you think of the promo? Are you excited for season 7? Where do you think Dany is sitting on her throne? Will the White Walkers invade this season or will that happen in season 8? Which of these rulers do you think will win the upcoming battle? Who do you want to win?
