It seems that the production team of "Game of Thrones" season 7 went back last week to Calgary, Canada for some dire wolf filming. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the show was also seen in the same area. This indicates that Arya might be back in Westeros and reunite with Nymeria, her dire wolf.
Animal Trainers Are Helping
Apparently, Instinct Animals for Film is assisting the film shooting of "Game of Thrones" season 7. Watchers on the Wall said that Williams was seen in Calgary during the time IAF was shooting with the GoT team. IAF is a group of professional animal trainers that helps the film crew train actual wolves to be the dire wolves in Westeros.
A Nymeria-Looking Wolf Was Posted On Instagram
IAF also posted on its Instagram account two photos of wolves ready to work. They gave the pictures hashtag #WinterIsComing. These images were shared by IAF at the time Williams was reportedly filming on the same location. One of the wolves was billed as Quigley, the dire wolf of Jon Snow. But the other wolf bore a striking resemblance to Arya's dire wolf - Nymeria.
Some Believe That Nymeria Will Return
Thus, "Game of Thrones" season 7 spoilers came out suggesting that Nymeria will return in the show. Fans will recall that this dire wolf was chased by Arya away so that Prince Joffrey couldn't kill her. In George R.R. Martin's novel, Arya learns of a she-dire wolf that brought a wolf pack together to invade the Riverlands. Could this storyline be explored in the next episodes?
This Might Change Arya's Kill List
If a reunion with Nymeria is in the minds of the showrunners, it will present a number of complications for Arya. This could alter her kill list. Some "Game of Thrones" season 7 spoilers are hinting that Cersei (Lena Headey) will be the next target on her list. Jaime and the sons of Walder Frey are already listed there.
No Firm Premiere Date Yet For "Game of Thrones" Season 7
There is still no firm date for the premiere of the show. IMDb listed the air date of "Game of Thrones" season 7 on June 25, 2017. But that was in January. That list was already removed. But many observers believe that it is still the most likely date and they're sure that the TV series will hit the airwaves this summer.
