Everything We Have to See in Game of Thrones Season 7

Winter is finally here! After more than a year off the air, Game of Thrones will return for its highly anticipated seventh season this weekend. This means soon we’ll be able to see seven brand new episodes of the HBO fantasy series featuring what we can only assume is plenty of political scheming, fire breathing, and white walking.

This also means we’ve been thinking a lot about what it is we have to see in these new episodes. So as we prepare for the epic show to once again blow our minds, here’s our wishlist for when the series returns Sunday, July 16.

7. Ice, ice dragons, baby!

We know it’s kind of greedy to ask for more dragons, but the introduction of ice dragons — whose existence has been hinted at throughout George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels though not in the series — would kick things up another notch. According to legend, ice dragons dwarf their fire-breathing cousins and are said to be made of living ice. Rumor has it they also have breath so cold it can instantly freeze people and objects solid, which is just as cool, if not cooler, than lighting your enemies on fire. Of course, given that “winter is coming” has always been a warning and not something to be celebrated, it’s doubtful said ice dragons would fight on the side of our heroes. But you’re crazy if you think we’re not here for some epic dragon-on-dragon action.

6. The death of Littlefinger.

Season 7 should probably end with someone technically “winning” the Iron Throne, followed by the realization it doesn’t even matter who wears the crown because ice zombies and magic ice men are invading Westeros. This means killing one another over a stupid chair that’s probably not even comfortable is really not all that important in the grand scheme of things, which is why it would be fitting for Aidan Gillen‘s Littlefinger — the man who started the so-called game of thrones in the first place — to die and mark the end of that particular struggle. We don’t actually care how it happens. Just that it does.
