New alliances are forming

Until now, early Game of Thrones season 7 spoiler discussion has just been in the realms of theorising over filming locations, but today a couple of pretty major plot points have leaked from the set.

They pertain to what will be happening as the new season opens. Consider this your obligatory spoiler warning.

1) Euron teams up with Cersei

According to Watchers on the Wall, who broke the spoiler:

‘It looks like a big year is in the works for Euron- we hear that he and Queen Cersei are teaming up in season 7. We’ve also heard that Euron will take out at least one of the Sand Snakes.’

The pair allying would make sense, partly because Euron’s tactic for wooing Daenerys is unlikely to go down well and partly, obviously, because they are both baddies.

2) Yara and Theon will fight Euron at sea and get split up

As per WOTW again:

‘GoT filming this week centered around Yara and Theon Greyjoy engaging in battle at sea. It appears that their uncle Euron is catching up to the siblings and will capture one of them.’

I wouldn’t put it past Game of Thrones to make Theon a tortured hostage yet again, but that would be pretty brutal/repetitive. More likely, I could see Euron somehow capturing Yara, forcing Theon to summon some mental strength and head up House Greyjoy - at least until he can rescue his sister.

Season 7 will consist of seven episodes rather than the usual 10, and arrive in summer 2017.
