The events of Game of Thrones Season 7 are about to pick up speed! Things move much faster in the upcoming new season.
Game of Thrones Season 7 will be on fast track and wrap up things faster, according to cast interviews from EW. The slow development of the main characters from seasons past are gone, says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the interview. “I feel like I’d been lulled into a different pace,” he said. “Everything happened quicker than I’m used to… a lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.”
Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros in the last season of the show, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in Season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent in Game of Thrones Season 7.
Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow, explained by saying, “This season is really different than any other season because it’s accelerating toward the end, a lot of stuff collides and happens much much quicker than you’re used to seeing on Thrones… it’s so different than what everybody is used to. It’s quite exciting.”
“For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come,’” showrunner David Benioff told the site. “Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it — you still want to give characters their due, and pretty much all the characters that are now left are all important characters. Even the ones who might have started out as relatively minor characters have become significant in their own right.”
