George R. R. Martin and his world of Westeros has once again set the broadcasting industry on fire, as expected. Game of Thrones Season 7 premiered on July 16 has already registered record-setting television ratings. According to Neilsen, HBO's epic fantasy drama drew 10.1 million viewers for its premiere. Remember, these numbers exclude streaming and DVR views.
Needless to say, with the premiere of this penultimate season, fans are expecting back-to-back 'OMG' moments and of course, they want the plot to travel in lighting pace toward the endgame. After all, it's just the beginning!
The first episode of the seventh installment of Game of Thrones churned out two exciting storylines—Daenerys versus Cersei and Jon versus the White Walkers. In brief, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is moulding an extensive army and has landed in the land of Dragonstone while Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is at the top of the Westeros as the throne queen. Meanwhile, Jon Snow has realised that he's Targaryen, son of Rhaegar. And, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is plotting a revenge plan for Red Wedding family deaths.
Creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have laid the foundation carpet perfectly, but what's more thrilling is the unpredictability of the plot (of course, fans have already sensed it right from the teasers). After all, in Martin's world, anything can happen. The endgame is likely to showcase few more deaths of the good guys as some of them are repeating the history. Sometimes deaths are mourned and sometimes celebrated, so it is just a matter of who, when and how!
In an exclusive poll hosted on our Twitter handle, fans have predicted the end of Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish (played by Aidan Gillen) in this season. Petry triumphed with more than 50 percent of the vote followed by Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Sandor "The Hound" Clegane (Rory McCann).
Well, when it comes to GoT, anything is possible but one thing for sure is "there will be blood." Who do you think will end their glory in this pre ultimate season. Comment or send us your thoughts.
