With just over a week to go, HBO has released the episode titles of the first three episodes of Game of Thrones season seven.

If you're expecting a multitude of answers, look elsewhere - the plot details (for the most part) are as cryptic as you'd expect from one of the biggest shows on TV.

You can find the titles and synopsis of each episode below. Let the theories commence (Update: you can find our own ones here).

Episode one: “Dragonstone":

Jon (Kit Harington) organises the defence of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.

Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.

Episode 2: “Stormborn”

Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.

Written for television by Bryan Cogman; directed by Mark Mylod.

Episode 3: “The Queen’s Justice”

Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.

Written for television by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod


At first glance, not much can be discerned from the above - however, upon introspection, it seems episode one's details hint at a huge part of Daenerys' storyline - namely that her long-awaited return to Westeros will occur in the opening episode.

Every other plot detail throw forward many questions - but, then again, it's to be expected with a show of this stature.

HBO fansite Watchers on the Wall seemed to confirm the running times of each episode, with one and two clocking in at 59 minutes. The third episode is a little longer with a running time of 63 minutes. The season finale will be an 80-minute feature-length special.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO, Sky Atlantic and NOW TV on 17 July. You can find a compilation of everything we know so far about the forthcoming episodes here, as well as our storyline predictions.
