Will fire and ice finally meet?
Game of Thrones, Showcase, Monday at 11am and 8.30pm
AS SEASON seven begins, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke, pictured), has finally set sail for Westeros with Tyrion Lannister, her newly appointed Hand. They are accompanied by her unsullied army and emboldened by Dothraki and Ironborn allies and her lethal trio of dragons.
Jon Snow, memorably reanimated last season, has apparently consolidated power in the North after his spectacular conquest of Ramsay Bolton, with help from Sansa, and the return of Winterfell to Stark control.
In King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister, bereft of any surviving heirs, has successfully seized the Iron Throne.
But another, apocalyptic threat looms in the form of an army of undead White Walkers expected to breach The Wall and invade the South.
