This story contains potential spoilers for the upcoming seventh season of HBO’s Game of Thrones
In 2017, HBO’s mega-hit fantasy series Game of Thrones will premiere its seventh season, which will continue to push the narrative further into the realm of the unknown.
Over the past couple of seasons, the show has outpaced the novels which serve as its source material, and while the sixth book in George R.R. Martin’s critically acclaimed series is expected to hit store shelves early next year, it’s likely the next season of Game of Thrones will continue to remain ahead of its written counterpart.
With that in mind, there’s plenty of speculation among Game of Thrones fans about the fate of their favorite characters: Who will live, who will die, what alliances will be formed, etc. Earlier this week, Watchers on the Wall unearthed a few new details about an important filming location – and which cast members are expected to be on set – which could foreshadow an interesting partnership.
Since August, Watchers has reported that portions of Season 7 would be shot on location at Italica, the Roman ruins found in Santiponce, Spain. These reports have now been confirmed, with an announcement that the site would be closed to the public from Oct. 17 through Nov. 12 to allow for filming to take place. Walkers sources claim that Italica will be used to create the Dragonpit, which book readers will recognize as the decrepit ruins near King’s Landing that once housed the dragons of the Targaryen family.
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will apparently travel to the Dragonpit where she’s expected to meet with several different characters including Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). With both of these characters in service to House Stark, could they serve as emissaries to forge an alliance with the Mother of Dragons?
Fans have long been clamoring for House Stark and House Targaryen to join forces – it’s possible that wish may be granted next year. We’ll find out when Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its seventh season next summer.
