Following a delay in production for 4 months, Popular American TV series ‘Game of Thrones’ latest season (season 7), was premiered on Sunday, 16th July by HBO website.
The series lovers who anticipated the latest season debut were not left disappointed, expressing their various delight and opinions on different social media handles about the explosive opening.
However, the premiere experienced a slight setback as HBO.com was down during the season premiere.
It was learnt that people who attempted to go to the website were greeted with an error message saying there was a problem loading the page.
The website, however, returned to working order during the final half of the episode’s East Coast premiere.
“There are very few shows that can deliver as much action and excitement as much action and excitement as the season six ‘Game of Throne’ finale, and there are perhaps even fewer shows that can make a table-setting episode this much fun,” a Hollywood Reporter said after the premiere.
“So it’s all the more bittersweet that only is winter here, but the end is in sight”.
The season seven is entitled “Dragonstone,” it narrates how Cersie Lannister (Lena Headey), who is the Iron Queen and ruler of the Seven Kingdom, makes alliances that seeks to threaten newly-anointed King of the North, Jon Snow (Kit Harington).
Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), who is now a trained poisoner and throat-slitter continues on her vengeance mission on the killers of her family at the Red Wedding. Her elder brother Robin Stark and Mother Katrin were murdered at the infamous Red Wedding in the last episode of the series.
Ed Sheeran , the multiply Grammy award winner also appeared in the latest season. He played a comic role in the movie which started torrent memes and excited comments from his admirers on Instagram and Twitter.
Variety magazine called the cameo “ridiculous” while one fan on Twitter said, “If Arya Kills Ed Sheeran it will be worth it.”
“Game of Throne” narrates the story of noble families tussling to have control of the most powerful political seat; the Iron Throne; while keeping watch on the “White Walkers” leading hordes of the undead towards the invasion from the North.
The series has more Emmy Awards than any other narrative series and boast of over 20 million viewers per episode.
