HBO just sent out 10 photos from ‘Spoils of War’, the next Game of Thrones episode. It’s hard to believe we’re already at S07E04 after the winter’s long wait for Season 7 to kick off, but we’re already in the thick of things in terms of plot. By the way, there are potential minor spoilers below if you’re not caught so just be aware of that.
It’s been a weird week for HBO. They were hacked and some forthcoming episodes of other shows were released as well as a Game of Thrones script. I refuse to read those spoilers because I see no reason to ruin this season for myself, but you’re eager to read those spoilers you can click this article and then go down the rabbit hole from there. The difference between that script leaking and me refusing to read the spoilers versus these images from Ga,e of Thrones S07E04 ‘Spoils of War’ is that I can avoid the script. HBO sends me these images and I can’t exactly ignore my work inbox, can I? So I’ll look, and I’ll share with you bros.
Scrolling through these images I see a lot of unhappy and fearful looking characters, and then there’s Brienne and Podrick looking all cheery-faced like they both just got laid in the barn. Seriously, look at the pained expressions on everyone’s faces in these images from ‘Spoils of War’.
You can see the red leaves of the Godswood of Winterfell. With Sansa’s ‘oh shit’ face I’m guessing she’s witnessing Bran do some weird shit as the ‘3-Eyed Raven’ all tapped into the tree.
Two seasoned warriors here. Jamie and Bronn are either still in Highgarden or they’re on their way back, but their expressions show them looking worried way off into the distance, perhaps sizing up an approaching troop.
One Devios MOFO right here. Gotta respect his hustle though.
Jon Snow down below. It appears as if he’s standing on sand or dirt. It could be the beach or he could be standing in one of the dragon pits. Or, he could be coming up from wherever they’re mining the dragon glass.
Dany’s face says ‘OH SHIT’ here. I’m guessing her girl just told her how Grey Worm went down on her and flicked the button.
Theon Greyjoy showing up anywhere spells doom. This dude’s the biggest pussy in all of Westeros. Danger follows him wherever he goes, and he runs from it as fast as his chicken legs can take him.
What the fuck are they all doing here, posing for their new album cover?
This employee of the Iron Bank is certainly interesting. We haven’t even seen a glimpse of his full might yet. I’d like to see Cersei cross him in the slightest so we could see what sort of retribution this man’s capable of, and that way we know just how seriously we should take this character. My hunch is that he’ll prove to be a major power broker, but I could be way off on this assessment.
Seriously, fuck this coward.
LOOK AT HOW GODDAMN SMUG PODRICK’S FACE IS. Dude, reel it back a little bit. Act like you’ve been there before. Brienne looks like she just ripped a nasty ass wet fart and asked Podrick ‘do you smell popcorn?’ and she’s on the verge of busting out laughing when the smell hits her squire.
Did I miss anything?
