Game of Thrones Season 7 Set Video Reveals a Tense Reunion
Over the past few days, production has been under way in Spain on Game of Thrones Season 7, and we recently showed you new set photos that offered a first look at the long-awaited meeting between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenery Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Today we have even more photos from the set and a new video that shows the action has moved to the sandy beaches of Spain, featuring our first look at a confrontation between Jon Snow and Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). If you aren't caught up with the show quite yet, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
The video was posted on YouTube earlier today, showing the intense reunion between Jon Snow and Theon Greyjoy, who hadn't seen each other in several years. This scene, which was shot on the beaches of Basque/Zumaia, Spain, shows Theon and a number of unidentified characters sailing up to the beach at Dragonstone, where Jon Snow is waiting for him. The video, which was shot from a mountain near the set, doesn't pick up what is actually said between these two characters, but when Theon tries to walk past, Jon Snow grabs Theon by the throat and stops him.
After this exchange, another conversation ensues but we don't know what was said, before Jon Snow walks away. Jon Snow naturally has plenty to be angry about when it comes to Theon Greyjoy, since Theon betrayed the Stark family and destroyed Winterfell. At the end of Season 5, though, Theon did try to redeem himself, saving Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) from the clutches of Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), before returning to his homeland on the Iron Islands. Towards the end of Season 6, Theon and his sister Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) strike a deal with Daenerys, providing her with 100 ships to sail across the Narrow Sea to Westeros with, in exchange for Daenerys helping Theon and Yara take back the Salt Throne from their uncle Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek).
It's possible that this tension between Theon and Jon Snow will be settled swiftly, if in fact Jon and Daenerys Targaryen are forming an alliance with Daenerys Targaryen to take the Iron Throne away from the Lannisters. Still, it's clear that Jon Snow isn't exactly in a forgiving mood during this scene. Still, we don't know exactly what was said between Jon Snow and Theon Greyjoy, and we likely won't know until Season 7 premieres this summer.
Game of Thrones Season 7 is expected to debut next summer, spanning seven episodes, three fewer than the past six seasons. The show will then come to a close with an even shorter eighth and final season, which is believed to span just six episodes. Take a look at the new video and set photos from Game of Thrones as filming continues in Spain.
