HBO unveiled a new trailer teasing what’s to come on Season 7 of GAME OF THRONES during the show’s panel at the San Diego Comic Con Friday.
Building on the previous promo released following last Sunday’s season premiere episode, this trailer doubles down on each army and each leader preparing to fight – each other and/or the White Walkers.
One thing they all have in common: They’re all a little bit in awe of and afraid of Daenerys Targaryen, whose biggest moment comes at the end of the clip, when she comes face to face with Melisandre for the first time. The Red Woman has a rather ominous message: “I believe you have a role to play, as does another.”
Melisandre appears to be referring to the one big prophecy that permeates the mythology of George R. R. Martin’s A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE book series, that one person is destined to rule Westeros when all the fighting is finally done.
Everyone has assumed Jon Snow was “The Prince That Was Promised,” particularly with the recent revelation that he is the son of Lyanna Stark (Ice) and Rhaegar Targaryen (Fire), but Melisandre seems to think Jon’s aunt may have a role in whatever mythical battle is about to go down as well.
Watch the new trailer above. Game of Thrones airs Sundays a 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
