Just hours after the new Game of Thrones Stormborn photos surfaced, featuring some of the key documents from that episode, HBO has unveiled eight more photos from next week's episode, The Queen's Justice, airing Sunday, July 30 at 9 PM ET on HBO. As we saw in the trailer for The Queen's Justice, fans will finally see what happens when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) finally meets the new King in the North, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Be warned, if you aren't fully caught up on Game of Thrones, including Sunday night's episode, then there will be SPOILERS below. so read on at your own risk.
Earlier this month, HBO revealed the synopses for the first three Game of Thrones Season 7 episodes, which, as usual, are quite cryptic. The synopsis for The Queen's Justice reveals that, "Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes." While we can only speculate about Cersei's gift return and Jaime's lesson, we know for sure who Daenerys is holding court for, Jon Snow. The Stormborn episode featured Jon Snow getting two separate messages, the first from Tyrion Lannister, who beckoned Jon to come to Dragonstone and meet his queen Daenerys. Most of the northerners, including his sister Sansa (Sophie Turner), were sure this meeting was a trap, imploring Jon not to go. While it seems like he isn't planning on making the journey, his mind changes abruptly after receiving a message from Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) from The Citadel, who reveals there is a mine of dragon glass underneath Dragonstone, and since they need dragon glass to defeat the White Walkers, he makes the journey.
Most of the images released by HBO revolve around this meeting, as we see Jon Snow and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) walking on the Dragonstone shore, while he's seemingly being met by Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). While we don't see Jon Snow, Davos and Tyrion together, it's clear that Tyrion is on the beach, with a number of unsullied soldiers at his side, including Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson), who is seen wearing his full armor in another photo. We also see Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) offering some counsel to Daenerys, along with a shot of Dany sitting on the Dragonstone throne, although the last two images are perhaps the most intriguing.
One photo reveals a glimpse from afar at Lord Varys meeting with the Red Priestess, Melisandre (Carice Van Houten), on one of the large rocks overlooking the Dragonstone shore. What exactly they're discussing is obviously unknown, but every episode this season seems to feature a number of different meetings between characters who haven't met thus far in the series. Of course, Lord Varys, with his vast network of spies, likely knows all about Melisandre and her powers, although their topic of discussion still remains unclear. Perhaps he wants to find out what Melisandre is really doing at Dragonstone, where she previously resided with Stannis Baratheon.
The final photo shows a surprisingly pleasant Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), who is seen walking through Winterfell with his unrequited love, Sansa Stark. In last week's episode, before riding off for Dragonstone, Jon Snow was seen choking Littlefinger, warning him to stay away from his sister while he's gone. Naturally, he doesn't heed this warning, although it remains unclear what this conniving character has planned for Sansa. Take a look at these new Game of Thrones photos from The Queen's Justice, airing Sunday, July 30 at 9 PM ET on HBO.
