#MusicIsComing! HBO and Live Nation announce the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, treating fans in 28 cities the iconic music from the series! Pre-sale tickets are available today.
I’ll never get over how phenomenal Game of Thrones Season 6 was. From beginning to end, every single episode just intensified the epic drama. But I can say that by the end of the finale, “Winds of Winter“, I’m feeling pretty good about my faves.
Jon Snow is King in the North, and we learn his parentage: Lyanna Stark is Jon’s mother, saved from the Tower of Joy by Ned after she dies in childbirth. Before she passes, Lyanna whispers something to Ned, something we don’t fully hear. Many speculate it’s Jon’s true name and his father, who I believe is Rhaegar Targaryen. Not only do I believe R+L=J, but I believe Rhawgar and Lyanna were married, making Jon the true heir to the Iron Throne.
Sansa is also alive and free from Ramsay’s clutches. She’s the leading lady in Winterfell and has helped her half-brother assume the mantel of leadership. This is a good thing, right? However, Littlefinger might have sewn seeds of distrust between Sansa and Jon, evidenced by her distressed look when the Stark allies proclaim Jon as king. I don’t know… I’m still over here on my Jonsa ship, so I don’t like to think of them being at odds.
Arya has reclaimed her identity but kept some of her skills she learns at the House of Black and White… her first stop is the Riverlands where the slaughters Walder Frey and his sons.
Dany has an alliance with Yara Greyjoy, the Sandsnakes, and Olenna Tyrell. She has her ships and she’s riding to King’s Landing to take the Iron Throne
When she gets to King’s Landing, she’ll find Cersei has installed herself as queen after massacring High Sparrow, his followers, the Tyrells (Margaery/Loras), and many of the highborn. Then Jaime returns from the Riverlands and sees Cersei has done what he killed the Mad King to prevent—releasing wildfire in the city.
At this year’s Comic-Con, HBO shared this “in-production” teaser for Game of Thrones, where we see the crew preparing the sets for Season 7. In the background, we hear Qyburn crowning Cersei, Sansa’s final conversation with Ramsay, and Tyrion welcoming “my queen” (Dany?) home:
Recently HBO confirmed that Season 8 will be the final one for the show, seven episodes in Season 7 and six in Season 7. Read more HERE at Entertainment Weekly.
We also know the Season 7 will be starting later in Summer 2017 to allow for production to take advantage of the winter season.
But don’t worry—we won’t be completely without Game of Thrones during this hiatus!
HBO and Live Nation announced their collaboration to bring Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience to a city near you, starting February 2017!
