HBO Officially released their first teaser for Season 7 of Game of Thrones on March 30th 2017. The short teaser focuses on the 3 leaders left in the show and their inevitable confrontations. The teaser, mainly split into 4 parts with Cersei, Jon and Daenerys, sets the stage to where Season 6 had left us: Cersei Lannister is the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Jon Snow has been proclaimed King in the North, and Daenerys Targaryen, along with her dragons and her allies, are headed to Westeros. Winter is here, and the White Walker threat is now bigger than ever.
You can watch the teaser here:
Breaking this short teaser down, it can easily be split into 4 parts.
I) The Long Walk
Cersei Lannister In The Red Keep
The teaser starts with the newly coronated Queen of the Seven Kingdoms making her long walk inside the Red Keep in Kings Landing.
Jon Snow In Winterfell
Miles away in Westeros, Jon Snow, the newly appointed King in the North by the winning Northern Houses makes his long walk inside Winterfell.
Daenerys Targaryen In Dragonstone
Daenerys Targaryen, wearing all black clothing fit for Westerosi Winter, is walking in what seems to be, and most likely is, the Castle of Dragonstone, her family’s ancestral home on the Narrow Sea not too far from Kings Landing. Daenerys is not wasting any time in reclaiming what is hers. Dragonstone had been held by Stannis Baratheon ever since the end of Robert’s Rebellion, up until his demise in Season 5.
II) Enter The Halls Of Power
Cersei Lannister Walks In The Throne Room
Cersei has now entered the Throne Room, fully decorated in Lannister Sigils up on the windows. House Baratheon and Baratheon/Lannister as Joffrey and Tommen Baratheon sported are now completely gone.
Jon Snow Enters The Great Hall Of Winterfell
Jon Snow enters the Great Hall and looks at the lead table where he was proclaimed King in the North in the Season 6 finale.
Daenerys Targaryen Enters The Throne Room In Dragonstone
Daenerys enters the throne room inside her ancestral home castle of Dragonstone.

The King In The North Leads The Great Table
Jon Snow sits at the lead table and contemplates about the Great War to come. He, unlike the two other, knows what the real threat is….
The Dragon Queen Sits On The Throne In Dragonstone
Daenerys sits on the Throne of the Dragon where her ancestors once sat before invading Westeros. Her plan of action will begin here…
IV) Winter IS Here
Cersei’s Chilling Breath
Winter has reached Kings Landing, as shown by the chilling breath of Cersei Lannister, an already cold woman, as the camera pans away and fades to black…
The Real Threat Is Here
… Only to reveal the real threat: The White Walkers! The camera cuts to the eye of the Nights King.
Jon Snow’s challenge will be to convince one, if not both of the two queens to join forces in order to fight what lurks beyond the Wall. That is if the two queens don’t start fighting each other in the first place
