HBO has revealed episode descriptions and titles of its penultimate season of the hit show Game of Thrones, which will be shown on July 18 on Star World in India. The cryptic descriptions provide a very general outline of events, and are designed to drive hardcore fans around the bend.
In the first episode of the seventh season Dragonstone, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) will be seen organising the defence of the North while Cersei (Lena Headey) makes her moves. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) begins the journey back home. Show creators David Benioff and DB Weiss wrote the episode, which was directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
In episode two, titled Stormborn, Daenerys will receive an unexpected visitor, Jon will take on a revolt and Tyrion Lanister (Peter Dinklage) will plan the conquest of Westeros.
The third episode, Queen Justice, possibly refers to Daenerys. There’s more about Cersei and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in this episode.
In an interview, Harington hinted that his conflict with Sansa (Sophie Turner) was going to increase in intensity. Harington told EW, “It gets past sibling squabbling, it gets into two people power struggling.”
