Some of the most intriguing details come thanks to the recently released batch of photos from the first episode, titled 'Dragonstone'.
Thanks to the images, we can place some of the events previously seen in trailers, with confirmation the season will kickstart with Daenerys finally reaching Westeros.
Fan-favourite Lyanna Mormont is seen, looking as Lordly as ever, while Mera also makes an appearance, having reached The Wall and met the Night's Watch. Flick through the images below.
The episode also has an official synopsis, which reads:
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.
