Not long now, folks!

Season 7 of Game of Thrones is almost upon us, and HBO has dropped the synopses and titles for the first three episodes to amplify the already deafening hype.

As is usually the case, each synopsis is frustratingly vague, but there’s a ton of exciting conjecture that can be drummed up nevertheless. The directors of each episode have also been named (Jeremy Podeswa behind ep one; Mark Mylod behind both eps two and three), so we’ve also included what GoT chapters they’ve tackled before.

Without further ado…
