Game Of Thrones Season 7 - 8 Clues From "Queen's Justice" Trailer

7. Euron's Gift

Euron Queens Justice

Having promised he'd be back, Euron - a magnificent villain (so stop complaining about his image change and concentrate on what matters) - returns to King's Landing gleefully lapping up the adoring crowd.

It's still amazing how much the King's Landing crowds lap up the ceremony of captivity and death. Despite this being the same crowd who bayed for Cersei's blood when she was forced to walk through the city in shame not so long ago, they're now out in force greeting Euron the Cosmic Pirate like a returning hero.

And it's got nothing to do with him, no matter how much he rock-stars it up: it's about what he's dragging behind him on the chain you just about glimpse: Yara, Ellaria and Tyene. In other words, that "gift" he promised he'd bring Cersei, which spells doom for those three, given that we know the synopsis for this episode mentions Cersei returning a gift.

She's probably not returning her gift to Euron, but to Dany - and we can probably expect that to mean she intends to mail the young queen parts of her allies.

Meanwhile, Euron is still lapping up the ceremony of his return, as if he's a conquering hero. His bow to Cersei in the trailer is a beautifully irritating, colossally arrogant thing for a supposed show of humble respect...

So will the Queen accept his proposal this time? It's unlikely she'll turn him down again with this size a crowd there to witness - she can't afford to humiliate such a self-styled alpha male when she needs his fleet. So maybe we'll see more wedding bells after all?
