'Game of Thrones': Burning questions heading into season 7

Since we're patiently waiting for Sunday's Season 7 of Game of Thrones, let's play everyone's favorite classic party game!

Sansa Stark has been through a hell of a lot since the first season of Game of Thrones. Think of it like "SportsCenter" but for "Game of Thrones".

Will it be Daenerys? In what was the biggest revelation of the season, Bran has a vision that confirms Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen (the famous R+L=J theory).

After nearly 6 years of hearing that "winter is coming" it was a chilling moment at the end of the last season to hear the proclamation "winter is here". You'll be ready to enjoy the bloodshed in no time.

Isaac Hempstead Wright: Oh, yeah! [Laughs] But I do see Kristian regularly. But I don't want it to be a exhausted rehash of Pride and Prejudice, with one party haughty every second and the other smouldering with righteous outrage. But when it's your sister there's not much you can do about that. I didn't want to kill Hodor. At the time, Dany told him she must remain available for marriage in the name of an alliance-but she didn't say what, if any, alliance she had in mind. In Season 6 of Game of Thrones, Jamie explains to Brienne that he killed King Aerys to protect the people of the city. For now, the only episodes he's listed as appearing in are the first two of Season 7. It's a very interesting new time for him. We left her sailing for King's Landing at the end of Season 6.

But it'd probably take a warrior like Beric - who has looked into the abyss just like Jon has, before being pulled back from the brink of it - to convince him about this potential grand destiny. You're good! You're all set! So to actually have reached that after what feels like an eternity, it's exciting-and nerve-wracking!

There were no new plot details, but we saw scenes from the directors' and producers' research trip to Iceland, Finland and Norway. It may not be much to go on, but this news about Elastigirl really leading the charge is incredibly exciting, full-stop.

The question of why Hodor only ever said "Hodor" was heartbreakingly revealed in season 6 and further showcased the scope of Bran's power.

Almost all Game of Thrones fans agree that Cersei Lannister will be killed before the HBO hit airs its final episode. If that character comes back in a later episode, no one is docked points. However Tyrion is the more obvious option due to their intense hatred of each other, and his allegiance with Daenerys, but it could go either way. What might happen there?

Now, sure, you could watch "Thrones" anytime, but according to HBO, three-fourths of all Twitter activity around the show occurs when it airs and the day after, so that means social media will immediately be dark and full of spoilers.

And what about his brother, the Mountain, who is basically a zombie now after nearly dying in his battle with Oberyn. We saw when the Night King came in and killed the Three-Eyed Raven that was played by Max von Sydow, there was that tension there between these two ancient foes finally battling it out, of finally that chapter coming to a close.

This being the case, recent comments made by different people involved with Game of Thrones, about very different characters, seem nearly like they fit together.
