A Game of Thrones: Season 7
« on: June 29, 2016, 02:31:51 AM »
We're already getting news about the seventh season of AGOT. Directors have already been chosen!

http://watchersonthewall.com/season-7-directors-announced/

Quote
– Alan Taylor: An Emmy-winning veteran of The Sopranos, Taylor helped pioneer the visual storytelling style of the show when he helmed the pivotal ninth and 10th episodes of season 1, particularly “Baelor” (the episode where Ned Stark was executed). The Thrones producers were so impressed they gave Taylor four episodes to helm in season 2 – including the premiere and the finale. Then Marvel snatched him up for Thor: The Dark World followed by Taylor reuniting with Emilia Clarke to direct her big-screen role in Terminator: Genisys. Now he’s back on Thrones for the first time since 2012.

– Jeremy Podeswa: The Canadian director and Boardwalk Empire veteran scored an Emmy nomination for directing the show’s most controversial hour, season 5’s darkly tense “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” This year he directed the propulsive season premiere as well as Jon Snow’s riveting resurrection episode, “Home.”

– Mark Mylod: A four-time director on the show, the British veteran of Showtime’s Shameless and HBO’s Entourage took on this season’s uniquely textured re-introduction of the The Hound in “The Broken Man,” as well as Arya’s exciting chase sequence in “No One.”

– Matt Shakman: A newcomer to the series. Shakman is best known for his work on FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a comedy loved by Benioff and Weiss (the showrunners even wrote an episode, “Flowers for Charlie,” although it’s not one of the 39 episodes Shakman has directed). Shakman has also helmed episodes of AMC’s Mad Men, CBS’ The Good Wife and FX’s Fargo.

So, if season 6 was any indication.. 4 directors at (likely) 2 episodes a piece means an 8 episode season, max.. or a 7 episode season if one director only does a single episode. Further backed by the showrunners that we're officially down to the final hours (or final 13 episodes) of the show..

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/game-of-thrones-season-6-7-8-how-many-episodes-left-david-benioff-db-weiss-george-rr-martin-jon-snow-a7107461.html

Quote
David Benioff and DB Weiss had previously hinted that they are “heading into the final lap” of the fantasy show. Now, in a post-season six finale interview with Deadline, the duo have said that 13 episodes remain, lending credibility to rumours that season seven will feature seven episodes and season eight just six. Fans have become accustomed to ten episodes per season, which each episode reportedly boasting a budget of $10 million.

“It’s two more seasons we’re talking about. From pretty close to the beginning we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now,” Benioff said, explaining that it’s not just the fear of outstaying the show’s welcome that means the end is nigh.

Honestly, I almost wish they would just make the 7th season the final 13 episode season if this is the route they're taking. Waiting another year for a 6 episode arc in season 8.. not psyched for that. ;)

So being that the Tyrells and Martells are going to be waiting on Dany besides the Lannisters who will be against her? I don't see any way she doesn't just completely wreck shop upon arrival in Westeros.

I hope they get Sapochnik for the final stretch, too.  He's 3 for 3 on amazing: Hardhome, and the last two season 6 eps.

I'm bummed if they do the Mad Men/Breaking Bad style half-seasons to end things, but there's no way they could do 13 in one go unless they delay next year's premiere to the fall.  They barely have time to do 10 a season, and the end game is surely going to be a pretty insane undertaking.

This is probably happening and I can see the battle doing serious damage to the fleet but unless they off a dragon or two I can't see who would be able to oppose Dany once she lands. Even if she shows up in Westeros with once dragon she should be able to destroy anybody that steps to her.

I think so. Also interesting.. the talk of storms this season. Euron says he is the storm. Jon Snow says the Night King brings the storm. I have a feeling that (there is book theory talk about the same thing) Euron is going to be a player in the Night King's army when all is said and done.

I fear one of the dragon's is going to bite it soon. I think that'll be the most upsetting death of the show for me!
I think you're right. My money is on Viserion.

I don't think it'll be soon, but it's going to happen.

I figure it'll be while battling the White Walkers. And then the Night King will bring it back from the dead and ride it.

And of course, it's breath now freezes things solid.

HBO posted this terribly laid out/designed family tree to confirm that, yes, Rhaegar is indeed the father of Jon Snow. Apparently some people were thinking it was Robert Baratheon (?), though I'm not sure that this style of graphic is going to make it clear for them, lol.

I wonder if they ever reached out to Bean about coming back? In the books it's only 13 years after the fall of the Mad King, figure with a little makeup or CGI editing they could make him look slightly younger.

Obviously D&D would never confirm a plot leak of this magnitude but there have been some extremely detailed plot points about the 7th season that showed up online. I won't post anything here but the Reddit page for ASOIAF has pretty detailed stuff.

Some crazy shit. I am torn on if I want it to be true or not. Some of it is obvious and I think spoilers or not was pretty probable but there are one or two things in particular that are NUTS.

Main thing that is insanity:
Spoiler: show
 Night's King taking over Viserion and using him to knock down the wall.

Great start to  kick things off.

"Walder" being kind to the Frey's in the beginning was great when you get what's going on. Arya is great.

I hope they continue with Lady Mormont shit talking down to Lord Glover the rest of the season.

Don't fuck this up, Sansa!

Enron seemed like he was dressed waaaaay too modern for Game of Thrones.

I think I want to see Tormund and Brienne get together more than I want to see The Hound vs The Mountain. Kinda nice seeing The Hound show some humanity.

I got nervous at the same idea of Tormund going to The Wall. I don't need that dude dying.

Fun fact. Bronn was in a mid 90's pop due that did nothing but old cover songs.

Does anyone feel like the gift for Cersei is one of the dragons? I'm nearly 100% positive all the dragons won't make it. Hell they may all die in her reconquest.

There's so many ways this can play out. I liked Jamie being the voice of reason and Cersei not realizing how badly off they actually are.

Indeed, then we could get some epic dragon v/s dragon action with Dany on one and Cersei one another...though I'm thinking maybe Cersei gets control of the 2 smaller ones and Dany only keeps control of Drogon.

To be honest I want this season to end with the crushing defeat of the Lannisters once and for all then next season moves on to the Night King problem with the combined forces of Dany and Snow.

But I feel like this season is going to end with Sansa betraying John and Greyjoy killing a dragon and helping the Lannisters get the upper hand on Dany.

Also who thinks this ends with Jamie killing Cersei just as he did the mad king?

First ep should've been Arya showing up at King's Landing to take our Cersei only to find Daenerys destroying the entire place, killing the Lannisters so we can focus on the wockers
