Dany in Westeros makes ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘a new show,’ says producer
Game of Thrones isn’t one for fan service — unless it’s the service of mashing our hearts to pulp — but Entertainment Weekly‘s latest cover story suggests we’ll finally get to see Daenerys stir shit up in Westeros.
“Dany in Westeros makes Game of Thrones a new show,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman told EW. “It has this amazing ripple effect throughout every storyline that’s very exciting to explore. There’s a pace and urgency that’s very palpable. This is the end game.”
Besides Dany and her Westerosi enemies, another interaction we’d love to see in Season 7 is that elusive Stark reunion. Sansa and Jon Snow found their ways to each other in Season 6, only to come painfully close to Rickon before Ramsay Bolton reminded us that Starks can’t have nice things.
With Arya heading North this season and Bran wandering winter without a protector (R.I.P. Hodor), will the family reconvene at home base in Winterfell?
We’ll find out (maybe) when Game of Thrones returns July 16.
