[VIDEO] New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer Shows Dany on Dragonstone, Brienne on the Wall and War Hitting Westeros

On the first official day of summer, HBO has decided to release the next trailer for the very wintery Game of Thrones season 7. Accompanied by the hashtag #WinterIsHere, the second trailer for season 7 is Game of Thrones is fans' best look yet at the penultimate season of the fantasy epic. There are the expected sights like scenes of several battles and the flight of some full-grown dragons but there are some surprises in store too, including fan-favorite characters in some shocking new locations.
Daenerys Targaryen is heavily featured in the sneak peek and the trailer confirms a theory that has been mulling about the fandom since the first pictures from season 7 were released. The trailer makes it clear that Dany will be setting up her base of operations for Westeros in Dragonstone, the former stronghold of Stannis Baratheon. Dany can be seen running her hand over Stannis' deserted war table and her advisors can be seen hanging out all over the gloomy island location. For those who are unaware, Dragonstone is actually where Dany was born after Robert had taken the Iron Throne. 

Dany isn't the only one popping up in a new(ish) location. It appears that Brienne of Tarth will be making her way back to The Wall. Yet it doesn't look like it will be another temporary visit. Brienne, along with Podrick Payne, can be seen wearing the robes of the Night's Watch. It looks like Brienne will be giving up her oath to protect Sansa Stark in favor of watching over all of Westeros from the coming White Walker invasion. 

Speaking of the terrifying ice zombies, they are all over the trailer. There are several scenes with the landscape being covered in snow as well as more than few battles with the forces of men fighting against the undead hordes. Most of this action seems to involve Jon Snow and the characters who are further up North. There are only a couple shots of southern locations, including King's Landing, but everything appears there to be dry and not infected with White Walkers for now.

Perhaps the most interesting tidbit from the trailer is a speech from Jon Snow that narrates most of it. Jon can be heard preaching for the need to unite against the White Walkers as it is the only way that humanity will survive. It is not disclosed or even hinted at who Jon could be talking to. The chances are high that it will Jon's secret aunt, Dany, and not the other Queen of Westeros, Cersei Lannister. 

What are your favorite moments from the trailer? What are you most looking forward to after seeing it? Who do you think Jon is talking to? Who do you hope Jon will align with in season 7? Will Brienne join the Night's Watch forever? What about the return of Beric Dondarrion or Bran's fancy new wheelchair? Sound off with your favorite moments and theories in the comments below! 

Game of Thrones season 7 premieres Sunday, July 7 on HBO.
