We’re just days away from the long-awaited premiere of the seventh season of Game of Thrones. James Hibberd, our man in Westeros, has been serving up a series of tantalizing looks at the new season. (You can follow the action on our Game of Thrones page!) And on a special preview episode of EW’s Game of Thrones Weekly podcast, James provides listeners with an in-depth first-person look at what it was like on the set of the HBO fantasy’s penultimate season. We also discuss our theories, hopes, and dreams for the upcoming batch of episodes. Will a Stark child day? And what strange alliances will form now that Dany has arrived back in Westeros?
