Comic-Con 2017 is in full swing and today was the day for the HBO Game of Thrones panel. The panel was moderated by none other than Hodor (Kristian Nairn) himself, and he looked a lot better than the last time we saw him on the show. Nairn walked out on stage said "Hodor" and then acted like he was going to walk off stage, which gave the crowd a good laugh. But before the panel started, fans were treated to a teaser trailer for the upcoming episodes 2 and 3 of Game of Thrones Season 7.
The news from the Game of Thrones panel comes to us via Coming Soon's live blog of the event. Apparently and not surprisingly, the cast that included Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), Conleth Hill (Varys), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) were instructed not to reveal any secrets, so were left with some casual conversation and some laughs.
When Liam Cunningham was asked if his Davos Seaworth character would hunt down Melisandre after her banishment for the brutal death last season, Cunningham said he would "would whip out a glock and pop a couple of caps in her ass. He doesn't have a list but he would probably put her in a shallow grave if it were up to me." Nairn asked Isaac Hempstead Wright about the significance of being the Three Eyed Raven and the actor replied that he wasn't sure, but that he saw it as "one of the few fragments that remain of the magical mystery side of old Westoros... the Night King appears to be his sworn enemy and so he must be important." Nairns then asked the cast what character they all might want to see come back from the dead... Hodor was mentioned.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT, read ahead with caution or skip. After Sunday's opening episode it was clear that season 7 was off to a pretty good start and as Game of Thrones does, it just left everybody wanting more. Lucky fans in attendance in Hall H were treated to a little taste of what's to come in a trailer for the next 2 episodes of season 7. The short trailer implied that Grey Worm and Missandei do some hooking up and then flashing to a massive Lannister army. The trailer also teased the return of the Red Woman. Melisandre meets with Danenerys to explain that there is another in the style of Yoda. Danenerys then takes a seat on the throne of Dragonstone where she plots her invasion. Elsewhere, Littlefinger says "Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend." There's way too much information packed into the one-minute clip to digest after one viewing, multiple viewings are recommended.
Although the panel did not shed much light on anything pressing, it did show the cast having a lot of fun with each other and interacting with the crowd. So that's all we have for now, we'll just have to sit back and wait for Sunday to come around. In the meantime, check out the trailer for episodes 2 and 3 of Game of Thrones Season 7.
