HBO released the first full-length trailer for Game of Thrones season 6 today, and if you haven’t already been waiting on the edge of your seat for the hit series to return, then you sure are now. Who are we kidding, though? You’ve probably already watched it about a dozen times and have forgone any respectable levels of productivity for the day in order to speculate. Well, we’re right there with you.
In case the video hasn’t yet embedded itself into your eyeballs, or you’re one of the poor souls who hasn’t seen it yet, you can watch it in the player below:
There’s a lot crammed into these 100 seconds, but one thing that caught our attention right away is the amount of Jon Snow. Now, he’s not exactly kicking his feet or licking his seemingly mortal wounds, but he’s suspiciously prevalent despite the showrunners claiming he really did kick the bucket in the season 5 finale. We even catch a glimpse of Davos about to fight people who are in the same room as his body, and that seems like an awful lot of commitment just to protect a dead guy.
We also see someone placing their hands over Jon’s face, perhaps Melisandre using the powers of the Lord of Light to resurrect him like we all know is possible. Can you tell how badly we want Jon to still be alive yet? I mean, the woman is once again seen taking her clothes off, which usually precedes a scene where her powers are used.
We see an awful lot of Cersei in the trailer, and boy does she look like she has vengeance on her mind. The Sparrows certainly have hell to pay after what happened to her last season, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of whatever the raised-from-the-dead version of the Mountain has waiting for them. Speaking of the Sparrows, the High Sparrow is also seen showing Margaery some comfort in the Sept. It seems she may finally be breaking under the weight of her imprisonment, and we could soon be seeing her used as a pawn in whatever holy game he may be playing.
That’s only a fraction of what happened in this jam-packed trailer, and we can certainly guarantee that this season is going to be as eventful as the last. Season 6 of Game of Thrones premieres April 24.
