Promotional photos have been released for Game of Thrones Season 4 finale, “The Children,” and they impart a bit of insight on what we can look forward to in what may end up being the show’s most epic episode to date.
Bran and co. are someplace super bright. In a photo showing Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Hodor, and Meera, we see them surrounded by bright, white light. Does this suggest they’re someplace magical? Or is it just particularly sunny that far north of the Wall? We also notice that Jojen is missing from the photo, making us wonder if the youngest Reed has fallen.
Arya and the Hound are unimpressed. We see Arya (Maisie Williams) and The Hound (Rory McCann) looking at someone, and they look thoroughly confused and/or not pleased. While we can’t tell who they’re looking at in the photo, the trailer for the episode suggests that it’s Brienne (Gwendoline Christie).
Arya looks hopeful. Next we see Arya on her horse looking towards the horizon. Worth noting is that she’s alone in the shot. Does this mean the end of everyone’s favorite buddy comedy featuring her and the Hound? Or is he just ahead of her on his own horse?
Where is Dany? We also see a shot of Dany (Emilia Clarke) on some steep stone steps looking down at something. The question is though, where is she? Those are not the steps that lead up to her throne, so does she leave Meereen in the finale? Or is this just a different part of the city?
Bran’s lip. The last pic is another Bran photo, suggesting that the least-used Stark gets some serious airtime in the finale. Bran is also sporting either a cold sore or a bloody lip, making us think that he may end up involved in some sort of scuffle.
