‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Trailer Proves A Lannister-Targaryen Battle Is Coming

by Stephanie Ironson

After much waiting and absurd anticipation-building tactics, HBO has finally released the trailer for Game Of Thrones Season 7.

The new trailer, which has countless layers left for fans to unfold and theorize about, leads up to the penultimate season on the HBO hit.

However, there is one layer that proves at least one culminating battle we've all been waiting for will happen this season.

It's the battle between the Lannisters and the Targaryns; and by the looks of the trailer, fans will get the gory, bloody, incredibly directed, jaw-droppingly produced battle we've been waiting for.

To refresh your memory, Dany has both the army of the Unsullied and the Dothraki on her side, and Cersei is currently ruling the Iron Throne in King's Landing.

Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen are the centers of the Game Of Thrones Season 7 trailer -- and for good reason.

I've broken down the scenes that seemingly outline the Lannister/Targaryen battles below.

At 0:25, we see the Lannister army marching with their red, lion-bearing shields.


Following this, which we see under a voiceover of Cersei Lannister talking about her enemies, we see Daenerys Targaryen standing in front of the gates of Dragonstone, home of the Targaryens, with an army of Unsullied behind her (note: Greyworm to the right).


At 0:48, we see the Unsullied storming into King's Landing.


A second later, at 0:49, we see an Unsullied pierce a Lannister armor-wearing soldier, while another lays on the ground.


At 1:13, we see Daenerys and Tyrion standing over a large table (hang in there, this comes into play in a second).

Seconds later, we see more fighting in King's Landing between the Unsullied and the Lannister army.


This is immediately followed by a cut to the Dothraki army, in a different terrain, riding into battle on horses. You can see the army they are fighting is wearing Lannister armor.


At 1:22, we see a lion figure being knocked over. By the looks of it, it is Tyrion's hand at the same table he and Dany are standing at 1:13, signifying a possible defeat of the Lannisters.


And finally, we see the Dothraki army being joined by one of Daenerys's dragons.


Of course, this is all speculation based on the Game Of Thrones Season 7 trailer, which was just released today, May 24. We'll all have to patiently wait until July 16 to really get our answers.
