Of Course ‘Game of Thrones’ Lunatics Transcribed That Season 7 Photo

Game of Thrones Season 7 Photo Azor Ahai

Game of Thrones Season 7 isn’t quite under the same secrecy veil as last year, but isn’t about to plant major spoilers with its first photos, either. Nonetheless, at least one shot teases a major prophecy coming to the forefront, and a mad Game of Thrones fan naturally transcribed it for you.

We were all rightly distracted with yesterday’s release of the first Game of Thrones Season 7 photos (especially Tormund making his sexy bread-eyes at Brienne), but it seems a shot of Sam and Gilly at the Citadel contained an important clue. No, not Sam’s choice in snazzy new Maester robes, but rather Gilly overlooking the famed “Azor Ahai” prophecy, which Reddit of course transcribed from George R.R. Martin’s Westeros history The World of Ice and Fire (h/t WinterIsComing):

It is also written that there are annals in Asshai of such a darkness, and of a hero who fought against it with a red sword. His deeds are said to have been performed before the rise of Valyria, in the earliest age when Old Ghis was first forming its empire. This legend has spread west from Asshai, and the followers of R’hllor claim that this hero was named Azor Ahai, and prophesy his return. In the Jade Compendium, Colloquo Votar recounts a curious legend from Yi Ti, which states that the sun hid its face from the earth for a lifetime, ashamed at something none could discover, and that disaster was averted only by the deeds of a woman with a monkey’s tail.

Here’s a closer look at the show’s version:

Game of Thrones Season 7 Azor Ahai Text

As WiC notes, the paper’s text is lifted almost directly from George R.R. Martin’s tie-in book, with the TV version substituting “Lord of Light” for “R’hllor,” given the infrequency of that name in live-action. In any case, the prophecy is bound to become a major focus of the final two seasons, with current speculation generally pinning the title on Jon or Daenerys. Or maybe Hot Pie! Come on, that guy’s due for a major arc.

We’ll find out when Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16, but in the meantime, check out the full complement of photos below.
