Game of Thrones Season 7 Spoilers: Who Filmed a GIANT Battle Scene?!

by at .  Updated at .

Sadly, Game of Thrones Season 7 is still several months away, but while we may not see winter come to Westeros for quite some time, the Internet remains dark and full or spoilers.

Troubled Tyrion

So in case you didn't pick up on it from the headline or the previous sentence, let us make this perfectly clear:

Spoilers lie ahead!

If you're not caught on the sixth season of the show and/or don't want to know about what lies in store for Season 7, go watch Game of Thrones online and pine for the summer of 2017.

(Yes, that's how long the wait is.)

Or just continue reading, and then blast us in the comments. Your call.

Alright, now that we know you're either interested in spoilers or acting out some weird masochistic impulse, let's proceed.

As their name indicates, the folks at Watchers on the Wall keep a close eye on all things GoT, and they have some interesting updates about current happenings in Belfast.

Yes, after rumored weather-related production delays (Turns out it's hard to simulate a deathly frigid winter in August.), GoT Season 7 is now filming in the Northern Irish capital.

Obviously, HBO is keeping a tight lid on production details, but keeping secrets in the Internet Age isn't much easier than approximating a blizzard during a heat wave.

Sources who have witnessed this week's filming say that a giant sea battle between Euron Greyjoy and his niece and nephew, Yara and Theon Greyjoy, was filmed this week.

Balon and Yara Greyjoys

As fans know, Yara and Theon fled their murderous uncle and formed an alliance with Daenerys Targaryen last season.

So the outcome of the battle could have consequences that reach far beyond the Iron Islands storylines.

Insiders have also indicated that Euron forms an alliance with Cersei Lannister in Season 7, so the clash of the Greyjoys could be even more important than we think.

The Euron-Cersei rumor makes sense, as writers are clearly making an effort to interweave the show's disparate plot strands in time for a conclusion that will hopefully address all of the the many questions that GoT has raised over the years.

With just 13 episodes remaining, that'll be no easy feat.

Elsewhere on the web, fans are theorizing that Tyrion might be a secret Targaryen and the reincarnation of Azor Ahai, the legendary warrior who - according to Melisandre's prophecy - will arise after a long summer (like the one that just took place) to declare his place as the ultimate badass in a world rife with badassery.

Obviously a lot will happen between now and the time when the show bids us a bloody adieu in 2018, but at the moment it seems Tyrion might be much more than just the Khaleesi's right-hand man.

Or maybe that's just wishful thinking, as we're #TeamTyrion for life.

Of course, knowing George R.R. Martin, anything resembling a happy ending will be interrupted by ice zombies eating everyone's faces.
