Game of Thrones season 7 already has some very interesting encounters lined up, but the latest to leak from filming could be of vital importance to how the show ends.

*Spoilers ahead*

Filming began in Spain this week, and none other than Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) were spotted shooting a scene together for the first time in the show’s history.

Queen Daenerys’ Hand and King Jon’s most trusted aide would be the obvious emissaries in any initial negotiations between houses Targaryen and Stark, and given they are both ruled by brains rather than impulse I could see them getting along just fine, in spite of the fact they previously fought on opposing sides at the Battle of Blackwater Bay.

In a video shared by Basque region newspaper El Correo, Davos and Tyrion were seen either embarking or disembarking from a boat on the shore of Muriel Beach in Barrika, which is believed to be doubling for Dragonstone, the original seat of House Targaryen in Westeros.

Cersei Lannister is thought to be allying with Euron Greyjoy in the new season, perhaps ending up in a sort-of tag-team match with Jon and Daenerys, though I can’t imagine the sides will line up quite that simply.

In news that won’t shake Westeros as hard but might please fans, another Spanish newspaper, Los Siete Reinos, has claimed that Joe Dempsie has also been seen on the Spanish set, suggesting the return of almost forgotten character Gendry.

Game of Thrones season 7 will consist of seven episodes and arrive on HBO and Sky Atlantic in summer 2017.
