Daenerys Targaryen will successfully claim yet another of her birthrights in Season 7 of HBO’s Game of Thrones as soon as she hits Westeros: Dragonstone, the ancestral seat of House Targaryen.
In the first trailer, Dany’s dragons can be seen flying around (bigger than ever) near some oceanside cliffs as Tyrion looks on. Nearby, Dany enters the massive seaside gate and emotionally touches the sand on the shores of the island she was born on. (After all, her first of many names is “Daenerys Stormborn” because there was a massive storm the night she was born at Dragonstone.)
We also get to see her take her seat at the Dragonstone Throne, which looks like a huge, jagged rock jutting into the room itself. We already knew as much from the teaser from early April.
It’s likely that the throne itself might be made of the same Dragonglass that has been so useful to Sam and Jon against the White Walkers. In fact, Dragonstone is the only place in the world that Dragonglass originates from.
Also seemingly present on Dragonstone is Melisandre:
If she is indeed back on Dragonstone, then it’s her first time back she departed with Stannis Baratheon after spending most of Seasons 2 and 3 there. Stannis, of course, was awarded Dragonstone at the conclusion of Robert’s Rebellion when Robert himself took the Iron Throne.
Melisandre presumably didn’t have many options after being banished by Jon from the North at the end of Season 6, so it’s entirely possible she’ll try aligning herself with Dany in Season 7.
There’s also a brief, dark shot in the trailer in which we see Dany and Tyrion in the Chamber of the Painted Table, bracing themselves for the Great War:
The room was used frequently by Stannis Baratheon to plan out attacks on the Iron Throne, converse with Davos, and impregnate Melisandre with a demon shadow baby that would go on to kill his brother, Renly.
