More clues and details from the official promotion pictures

Browsing through the official pictures we got, I looked a bit closer into the files to see if we could get more clues about episodes and storylines (as we did before season 6).

And while most of the pictures have been renamed and scrubbed of all specific information, a bunch of them still carry interesting details: mainly episode numbers, scene numbers, location description, characters shown and shooting date.

Some location names are revealing - for example they confirm that the shot of the Brotherhood members is taken at the FARMHOUSE we know from season 4, and one picture of Sam takes place in the AUTOPSY CHAMBER of the citadel.

Additionally, we learn the name of young Lord Umber, who together with Alys Karstark takes part in the meeting of the Northern lords: he is called Ned Umber - which may sound strange at first, but is not too surprising, as the Umbers were always loyal bannermen to the Starks; at least until Smalljon Umber switched sides and joined Ramsay Bolton.


Almost all of those pictures are from episode 1, which allows us to have some insight in the order the scenes will be shown in the first episode. Here's what we have:

About an unidentified trailer scene

One scene in the first season 7 trailer that wasn't totally clear was the one where we see someone grinding his / her weapon in a dark room. We do not see much of the person (nor the room), only a hand moving over the tip of a weapon:


As the hand in this scene does look a bit feminine, and we hear Cersei mentioning her "enemies to the South" in the background, one may get the impression this might be one of the sandsnakes sharpening her spear. After looking into it again, I am quite sure that this scene shows another person though:  

Grey Worm sharpening his dagger before his departure towards Casterly Rock.

And I think this scene directly precedes his sex scene with Missandei - she probably enters his room while he is preparing his gear for the assault on CR.

Why? Have a look at these pictures:

1. The blade is the typical dagger worn by the Unsullied; we can see it on Grey Worm's hip at the fighting scene at CR in the trailer, and he's wearing that dagger in earlier seasons too:


2. The sleeve in the "grinding" scene has a structure that is very similar to what Grey Worm is wearing when Missandei undresses him. And Grey Worm indeed seems to have rather "feminine" hands:


3. The open flame that is visible behind the hand in the first scene could be the same we see behind Grey Worm in the sex scene; plus, the colors and tone of both scenes look very similar: 


Everything seems to fit together in those two snippets from the trailer.

What do you think?

Second batch of S7 promo pictures released

Yesterday HBO released another small batch of promo pictures via Entertainment Weekly.
Unfortunately, those pictures do not reveal much new information - the only "real" new picture is the battlefield scene with Drogon.

Anyway, here's what we can tell about those pictures:

1. Cersei and Jaime in KL
 
Exactly the same scene as in the April promo picture, so nothing new here.
2. Tormund in WF

Behind the camera we can see Sean Savage, who has been working as a camera operator in every single episode since S02E01. No director or DoP to be seen, so unfortunately no hints about episode number here.
On the left there are some Vale soldiers with capes.
And Brienne has a male body double...
3. Sansa and Littlefinger in WF
 
Exactly the same scene as in the April promo picture, so nothing new here.
4. Brienne in WF

She's at the same location in Winterfell where Sansa and LF stand (in fact, you can see both of them behind her in the background.
5. Jon on horse in WF (E02)
 
We see him waving goodbye (to Sansa?), accompanied by Davos (wearing the same coat as in the April promo picture and Stark soldiers (dressed like the Stark soldiers who arrive with Jon and Davos at Dragonstone).
So this is probably the departure scene when they are leaving WF in S07E02 towards Dragonstone.
6. Arya on horse (E01-E04)

She's wearing the same clothes as in the short November teaser and in the April promo picture at the Inn. This time Needle is - correctly - on her right side, meaning the November teaser scene was mirrored. 
The location is definitely the Inn at the Crossroads.
7. Daenerys on Drogon (E04)
 
Battlefield with Dothraki, Lannister and other soldiers fighting between flames. Daenerys is wearing her royal outfit and her hairdo seems immaculate and absolutely unimpressed by all the action around her.

Season 7 promotion timeline

Bored from waiting for the first season 7 trailer? Here's a quick overview about the promo stuff we got before season 6 premiere to have some orientation about the possible timeline:



Up to now, we got the same stuff roughly in the same order and period of time as we did last year:
a teaser poster, two teaser videos and a bunch of promo pictures. If they follow a similar pattern as last season, next in line we could see
  • another teaser (next week?) 
  • the official season 7 poster 
  • maybe some "Inside GoT" / "Behind the scenes" clip 
  • the first trailer (around May 31st / June 1st?)
But maybe we'll get even more stuff this year - to lighten our long dark night of waiting!

(Or less - to punish us for the leaks ;-) )
