Season six of Game of Thrones, fortunately, didn’t leave viewers in disarray, unlike the finale of the previous season. In fact, it gave hope that the end game is upon us and viewers will soon be rewarded, watching their favorite characters finally succeed in the quests that they embarked on at the very beginning. But knowing our beloved show, there are sure to be a few spanners in the works in season seven of the greatest TV series ever made. Needless to say, beware of spoilers to anyone who hasn’t watched up until the end of season six.

The release date of the next episode of GoT has been confirmed for July 16 this year. But for those who just can’t contain their anticipation over the return of the Westeros residents, there are other ways to get a fix before July. One option is to re-watch all the episodes from the beginning in one of the most epic TV marathons ever. Another is to play the intriguing Telltale game series that explores an entirely original storyline set in the same universe. There is also a Game of Thrones slot game, developed by iGaming software provider Microgaming. As discussed by casino comparison site http://www.casinouk.com/, the studio is best known for their extensive selection of slots, including those based on other licensed titles such as Jurassic Park. Along with all those things, there is a GoT strategy board game by Fantasy Flight Games that is great to play with friends.

The best pastime could be coming up with theories on what will happen. Because the series has totally overtaken most of the storylines in the book, viewers are well and truly heading into the unknown. All HBO has graced us with so far is the above teaser trailer that focuses on Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow all taking up their respective seats of power. Cersei sits upon the Iron Throne, Jon takes his place as King in the North in Winterfell, and the throne that Daenerys claims is at Dragonstone, an old Targaryen stronghold that hasn’t featured much in the TV show up to now.

The most intriguing aspect of the trailer is Cersei blowing out cold breath at the end just before it cuts to the icy blue eye of the Night’s King. The internet has sparked a debate about what this could mean for the trajectory of the series. The most likely thing is that this is suggesting that winter has finally come, and the White Walkers will breach the wall and head south. But with two more full seasons planned, one would expect this to be a huge action piece in the final episode of the forthcoming season.

However, others think that Cersei may be planning to try and forge some kind of allegiance with the Night’s King. A Song of Ice and Fire folklore suggests that that wouldn’t be entirely impossible, as the Night’s King was once supposedly a Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. He was seduced by a “woman with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars” beyond the wall who subsequently took his soul and turned him into a White Walker – could Cersei be destined for a similar fate?

The great thing about this show now is that there can’t be any book spoilers, and people can come up with whatever theories they like. Some believe that we may even get to see an ice dragon. July 16 can’t come quickly enough.
