[The post is dark and full of spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven.]
If you’ve been meaning to travel to Seville, Spain — not that it’s worth the hassle; they don’t even have a Chipotle — now’s the time to do it. Many key members of the Game of Thrones cast are en route to or have already been spotted in the likely stand-in for King’s Landing, including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, and Nathalie Emmanuel. That’s exciting enough, and all but confirms our suspicions that more reunions and seasons-in-the-making meet-ups are coming, but it gets better. Rory McCann and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson are also both in Seville — as seen in these photos and also here — which means one thing: Cleganebowl is on.
Okay, it could actually mean many things, but Cleganebowl has been a persistent fan theory for years now. As we wrote back in May, “The basic idea is Sandor Clegane and Gregor Clegane will be facing off as opposing champions — one for The Faith [and] the other for Cersei.” Obviously things have changed since the season six finale: Cersei has 99 problems, but the Faith isn’t one, considering she blew them up. That doesn’t mean the brothers Clegane can’t cross paths, however, possibly in a scene unlike any other in Game of Thrones history, according to Watchers on the Wall.
There are 17 confirmed characters present at the massive Dragonpit scene: Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Qyburn, Gregor Clegane, Bronn of the Blackwater, Euron Greyjoy, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Jorah Mormont, Missandei, Varys, Theon Greyjoy, Jon Snow, Davos Seaworth, Brienne of Tarth, Podrick Payne, and Sandor Clegane. There may even be more to come! Nothing like this has happened in Game of Thrones ever before. The closest the show got was when the cast was much smaller and two thirds of it came together at Winterfell in the very first episode. Not even the Purple Wedding comes close. This scene promises to be eventful… (Via)
The dragonpit is a vault in King’s Landing where the Targaryens used to keep their dragons. It’s one of the few major locales we haven’t seen on the show yet, but if the rumors are true, the wait will be worth it, especially if the scene ends with Dany (and her dragons) taking back what’s rightfully hers.
Adding the Bowl would only sweeten the deal. Stay tuned.
