The second official trailer for the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” is out, and we have so very many questions.
While the first trailer warned that it was now war that was coming, the second trailer focuses on how exactly those battles will be fought. And survival. “Don’t fight in the North. Or the South,” Littlefinger creepily intones — probably to Sansa, right? “Fight every battle, everywhere. Always. In your mind.”
Jon Snow appears to be all about banding everyone together. Classic him! “For centuries our families fought together. Against their common enemy. Despite their differences: Together. We need to do the same if we’re going to survive.”
“When the snows fall, and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies,” Sansa says, so wisely. “But the pack survives.”
But what of everything else? Here are some of the burning questions we have after watching the latest trailer, over and over again.
Does Littlefinger ever get tired of lurking in the shadows?
We get it, man. You’re creepy. Your intentions are unclear. You’re not a good dude. You don’t have to be so obvious with the shadow lurking, and all.
Does Jon Snow ever get cold?
I know the man with the beautiful mop is basically undead, and that his hair is his most important feature. But it sure looks cold in the north, and it might do good to invest in a hat or some ear muffs.
Who got Bran a wheelchair?
Meera, right? She was tired of dragging him around, I bet. Her or the Night King, who was probably like, "I can’t really battle with you unless you’re somewhat mobile."
Who is doing Dany’s hair?
It’s getting more braided and more complex, and she’s really working it.
Why isn’t there more making out?
Sure, “Game of Thrones” isn’t a love story, not primarily. But there’s always time during wars and battles for steamy makeout sessions. The new trailer gives us a quick bit of Missandei and Grey Worm, but that’s it. Give the people what they want!
And lastly, will we really be able to wait until July 16?
