Game of Thrones Season 7 will debut on July 16 after a longer-than-usual hiatus, which means there is extra time for the hype train to keep rolling along. Today that means new set photos.
These pics kind of remind me of Mad Men‘s episode previews, insofar as they mostly consist of people staring off into space and give essentially no information about the plot. At least the medium of photography can justify this approach in that it is meant to be a tease.
Anyway, if I’m reading these shots correctly, they feature the residents of Westeros resigning themselves to a fate in which they all die by the end of this series. At least one guy seems to be laughing all the way to the grave.
