Everything we know about the Night King on 'Game of Thrones'

Everything we know about the Night King on 'Game of Thrones'

"Game of Thrones" returns this Sunday night for the highly anticipated seventh season.

Did we leave out your favorite to bang or kill? As the King in the North, Jon Snow sounds like he has his work cut out for him early on. Together they've been reliving visions of the past, including the creation of the first White Walker by the Children of the Forest, and the moment when Bran's father, Ned, found his sister near death in the Tower of Joy.

Since the end of Game of Thrones's Season Six, we have seen many speculations come our way as to how the subsequent episodes would develop. Martin, 68, recalled his confrontation with Weiss and Benioff about it as "the first major" disagreement they had about where "Game of Thrones" should go. This could be a powerful union for sure!

Kit Harington, left, and Rose Leslie arrive at the LA Premiere of "Game of Thrones" at The Walt Disney Concert Hall on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, in Los Angeles. But that role has had a bad rap over the seasons (RIP Ned!). He didn't last too long when he was Hand to Joffrey.

Game of Thrones is back.

And the final part of the prophecy, which was not included in the TV series (but it is in the book), was that Cersei's younger brother would eventually kill her. Jaime has killed a reigning monarch before for the good of the realm, so he might have to take matter into his own hands once again. He's really got to come into his own now. What's been most interesting is seeing who was named in the descriptions and pondering what that could mean for a certain character's overall arc. Meanwhile, Arya abandons her training with the Faceless Men, recovers her sword, Needle, and thus reclaims her Stark identity.

Another Game of Thrones prophecy that is the topic of much conversation is the prophecy of Azor Ahai, someone who basically is supposed to save the world in its darkest hour. They have never gotten along, so we could expect those two to face off?

Blair admits he 'did not foresee' Labour's 'remarkable' performance in United Kingdom election
Ah yes, Jeremy Corbyn. "Understandably, some Labour MPs who, only weeks ago, thought their best hope of salvation rested on disassociation from the Leader, now feel disoriented".

Even Jaime looks less than thrilled to see her sitting on Aegon's contested chair. But Lena Headey (who plays the equally scorned Cersei Lannister) said it's always a compliment when someone hates your character, because hopefully then you've portrayed them well. At the start of this season we are going on a big road trip with them.

Diana Rigg as Olenna Tyrell in "The Game of Thrones".

I promised myself I wouldn't give you crap about Hodor-but do you ever, say, meet Kristian Nairn for lunch and have him tote you into the restaurant for old times' sake?

Isaac Hempstead-Wright stars as the paralysed Warg Bran Stark dressed geeky wearing a black suit and thick-rimmed specs to the red carpet event. What's his next step?

But to be honest, it's nearly a relief that Bran doesn't have many people left around him, because now he can just focus on being the Three-Eyed Raven.

There's always a character you love to hate on "Thrones".

Having escaped Ramsey Bolton by leaping from the walls of Winterfell, Sansa Stark journeys north to The Wall where she is reunited with her recently resurrected half-brother. Who will be it next? What's his next move? Will Cersei die in Season 7, setting up Season 8 to focus on the war with the White Walkers?
