Even though this season has been shrouded in secrecy and mystery, HBO has finally released a trailer for season six, giving us much to whet our appetite.
As “Wicked Game” by James Vincent McMorrow we are treated to snippets of:
- A dead Jon Snow, with the words “he’s gone” in the background
- Jaime convincing Cersei that they will get their revenge
- A man burning on a Bolton cross with Roose and Ramsey sharing a worried look
- A distraught Melisandre unsure of her own abilities
- A hallucinating Bran standing before one of the White Walkers
- Jorah and Daario looking for Daenerys
- Daenerys with the Dothraki riders
- The High Sparrow encouraging the poor to overthrow the empire
- Tyrion with the dragons
- Sansa sitting in a castle
- A fight between the sparrows and Cersei and Sir Robert Strong
- And glimpses of Arya, Littlefinger, Euron Greyjoy, Theon, Brienne
And at the end, Davos attempting to steal Jon’s body, which if anything is my motivation that Jon Snow is not going to stay dead.
Game of Thrones season six airs on HBO on April 24.
