Speculative season 7 roadmap

Combining the list of directors / episodes published by WotW, the set photos and information we got from shootings in the Basque region and Northern Ireland up to now, and the extensive "leaks" published by u/awayforthelads and beautifully put together by u/maureencreates, I tried to compose an extended preliminary roadmap for season 7.

NOTE: Up to now there is no real discrepancy between the "leaks" and the photos / information we received via other channels. This can change any time when new information gets available - but everything we know at this moment can be combined into one coherent picture.

And this is what it could look like:

Episode 1 / Jeremy Podeswa

  • Opening scene: The army of the dead is marching towards the wall
  • Bran and Meera reach the Wall, they meet Dolorous Edd
  • Jon, Sansa and Lyanna discuss how to deal with the Northern lords who betrayed the Starks
  • Last scene: Dany's fleet lands at Dragonstone, Dany & Tyrion enter the castle and occupy Stannis' old battle room
  
Episode 2 / Mark Mylod
  • Dany summons all lords of Westeros to pledge allegiance to her
