Oh boy, the first trailer for HBO’s “Game of Thrones” (GoT) Season 6 was leaked online and we’re not quite sure what to make of it.
If you remember, at the end of Season 5, most of them were left in disarray.
Daenerys Targaryen jumped on her dragon’s back and flown away from Meereen only to land in the middle of a Dothraki army. Cersei and Margaery are in the midst of a power struggle with the Faith Militant and High Sparrow, Arya is training to be a deadly assassin in Braavos, and Bran Stark is learning the magical powers of greensight with Bloodraven (Three-Eyed Crow).
And Jon Snow, who can forget what happened to Jon Snow 🙁
The newly-released teaser is hella creepy, but doesn’t have any actual footage from the upcoming season, which leaves us with the suspicion that it could be someone’s vision. Perhaps Arya’s? It glosses over the cast of familiar faces (Starks, Snows, Lannisters), dead inside in the House of Black and White, headquarters of the Faceless Men and temple of the Many-Faced God.
Wait a second, what does this mean for the cast?
The long night is coming, and the dead come with it.
Watch the low-res leaked trailer below:
Season 6 will see the return of Bran Stark who can now use his special gifts to see into the past, present, and future of Westeros. It would also perhaps give us answers to Jon Snow‘s fate, who was last seen left to die after his Night’s Watch brothers brutally stabbed him to death.
The upcoming season will also mark the point at which “Game of Thrones” (the show) will finally overtake the books. So nobody really knows what to expect, especially not the book readers, because “The Winds of Winter” is not finished yet.
UPDATE (15th February, 10:24am):
A high-res official trailer has been released and it’s exactly the same as the leaked low-res trailer. No surprises there, hey.
“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on 24th April. Meanwhile, check out some GoT S6 behind-the-scenes teaser images here.
