Watch out! This article contains spoilers
The seventh season of ‘ Game of Thrones ‘ is being very special . Short of normal (seven episodes), in the middle of summer and with a much faster pace than we were accustomed. After the great battle that ended ‘War Botins’, this week’s episode, now should come the calm, and for the official photos of the fifth chapter just published HBO, it might seem that it is.
In the promotional images, which you can see at the end of the article, Daenerys weighs his victory with Jon and Tyrion , while talking with Varys about the strong personality of the Mother of Dragons. In Landing the King, Cersei sits reflectively on a bed, probably processing the bad news (will he give up his brother?), And while Sam and Gilly are still soaking up the books of the Citadel.
But something is missing. We know from the advance in video that you can see below that the episode takes its title, ‘Guardoriente’, by the place next to the Wall in which the White Walkers are going to strike a new blow . Last week, the 7×04 episode photos also did not announce that big battle that took place in the last 15 minutes, so it’s no surprise that HBO keeps the most shocking and important moment of the chapter for the day of the broadcast. Will ‘Guardoriente’ have a scene as memorable as that of ‘Casa Austera’? Only a few days left to check.
Despite everything, record audience
In addition to being attacked by hackers requesting huge amounts of money, HBO saw last week how the ‘Game of Thrones’ episode was mistakenly filtered by the logo of an Asian television network. Did this leak affect the audience of the episode? Maybe even positively: ‘Booties of War’ was, according to Entertainment Weekly , the most watched episode of the series’ story on Sunday night in the cable chain. It exceeded with 10,2 million spectators to the premiere of the season, ‘Rocadragon’. There is nothing that stops the scope of this war by the West.
