10 Things We Learnt From the Game of Thrones Trailer

HBO have premiered a new trailer for season 7 of Game of Thrones, following the stills they released last week, and it shows us so much more about what to expect from the upcoming series that it’s hard not to get insanely excited – as if we weren’t already excited enough. Here are 10 things I learnt from the trailer, which you can watch below.

Bran and Meera finally make it to the wall

Right at the beginning of the trailer we get a glimpse of a gate in the wall at Castle Black opening, and who is on the other side? – Bran Stark and Meera Reed. Hopefully this is the start of the Stark siblings reuniting. Three down, one to go.

Daenerys claims Dragonstone

It was inevitable that Daenerys was going to make Dragonstone her new home at some point – it was the original home of House Targaryen after all. Now we know for a fact that she lands on its shores and enters its castle, ripping down Stannis Baratheon’s banners to make room for her own.

Grey Worm finds a secret entrance

The unsullied play a prominent role in this trailer, especially Grey Worm, who at one point can be seen in a boat searching for what looks like a secret entrance. Later we see a shot of unsullied letting more unsullied into some sort of castle – could this be Casterly Rock or Highgarden? Both are rumoured to appear in season 7.

Bran has a connection to the Night King

As Bran flies over an army of white walkers in raven form, its leader seems to sense the bird, stopping Bran’s connection. This suggests that the two have some sort of cerebral connection. Rumours have been going around that Bran IS the Night King, though I think we’ll have to see about that one..

Brienne makes it to Winterfell

After Brienne and Pod left the Black Fish, failing to recruit his army, it was obvious that they would head back up noth – seen as Brienne is hell bent on protecting Sansa. By the looks of it, they make it in one piece, as they are seen entering Winterfell.

Beric Dondarrion joins Jon Snow

Wielding a magical flaming sword, Dondarrion is wearing furs and covered in snow which suggests that he and the brotherhood have headed north to join Jon Snow – there’s a shot a bit later on that confirms Snow will have a flaming sword by his side in battle.

The Hound is up North as well

We see a brief shot of Sandor Clegane covered in snow and wrapped in wildling clothing as well, which suggests that he too has joined in the fight. Last time we saw the Hound, he was with Dordarrion and his men, so this would fit in nicely.

The Greyjoys and Lannisters make an alliance

Ships from House Greyjoy are seen heading towards Kings Landing, but since Yara and Theon are with Daenerys, these have to be Euron’s boats, which means he is likely joining Cersei and will fight against his niece and nephew

There will be at least three epic battles

There’s evidence of three separate battles in the trailer. Jon Snow vs the Whitewalkers of course, but it also looks like Daenerys’ unsullied are going head to head with the Lannisters – led by Jamie, as the Greyjoy’s battle it out on the sea in their ships.

Jon finally meets Daenerys

There’s a very brief shot of the Jon and Davros landing in Dragonstone where we know Daenerys is holding up, which means the two are finally going to meet each other. Davros knows the land well, so it makes sence that he would guide Snow, but why they decide to travel there is unclear.

10 Gifts Every Deadpool Fan Needs in their Life

With Deadpool filming confirmed to be well on it’s way – thanks to Ryan Reynolds who tweeted a picture of the mercenary sun bathing outside the X-mansion earlier in the week – everyone is understandably getting excited about the sequel. I thought I’d share a few of my Deadpool must haves for the fan who can’t get enough of the Merc with the mouth.


1. Deadpool Piggy Bank – I am the worst at saving, like seriously – the complete worst, so I have absolutely no need for any money box ever, but if you need to store your pennies somewhere, why not in Deadpool – I’m certain he’d appreciate the extra cash. He is a mercenary after all.

2.  Deadpool Colouring Book – Adult colouring books are all the rage at the moment and you can’t get more adult than Deadpool. I personally own way more than any child should probably have, let alone adult, but this is a Deadpool colouring book man, its a must.

3. Deadpool Dress – Deadpool is no stranger to cross dressing, so I could totally see him rocking this little red number. It’s not the most conventional outfit, but it looks stretchy enough for back flips and copious amounts of stabbing, if you feel so inclined.

4. Deadpool Comic Poster – There are a ridiculous amount of posters out there in the online abyss, but this one is hands down my favourite. I just love the contrast between the black & white comic book background, and a red Deadpool standing cross armed in front.

5. Deadpool Bookends – I can’t say I’ve ever owned bookends because I’m a serial bookcase owner, but if I were going to own bookends, these would be a serious contender. Made of wood, I love the simplicity, and boldness.

6. Deadpool Leggings – I don’t think these need an explanation as to why they’re awesome and everyone must own them, even the guys. I have never seen anyone in Deadpool leggings, and feel that needs to change.

7. Deadpool Flair – There are not enough Deadpool pins in the world, and if you are one of the many who is yet to own one, make this the first in your collection because Mondo are pro’s at creating eye catching flair for your lapels, and this is no exception.

8. Adventure Time Watch – I knew I wanted this Adventure Time watch ever since seeing it on Deadpool’s wrist in the first movie, and now it’s actually available to buy – Just make sure no one else see’s it on your wrist, or your identity is blown, and Collosus will be after you.

9. Deadpool Pen Holder – Brutality is Deadpool’s game, and I’m not sure there’s anything more brutal than a severed head used as a push cushion for pens. Perfect for the desk of someone who needs a little help showing people who is boss.

10. Deadpool Tee – One for the pop culture mash-up fans out there – a Finding Nemo / Deadpool tshirt. Cute AND deadly, wearing this you might actually find yourself a Dory to help you with your quest – though we all know Deadpool works alone.
