Winter is coming on Sunday at “Game of Thrones” season 6 will premiere worldwide.
Aside from Jon Snow’s fate, many are excited to tune in to know what will happen to their favourite characters this season.
Warning! Spoilers ahead.
Here are some things you should know in the GoT season six.
1. Jon Snow Dead or Alive
Of course, this may be the primary concern of most, if not all, fans of “Game of Thrones”. Is Jon Snow really dead?
According to the actor who portrayed the role, Kit Harrington, Jon Snow is definitely dead. Harrington has said that he will only be playing a corpse in the upcoming season. However, HBO continued to tease otherwise.
The first episode has been titled “The Red Woman,” which suggest it has something to do with Melisandre. Will she bring back Snow from death?
The Independent cited one interview in which actress Carice van Houten, who plays Melisandre, has said: “I’m afraid I’m going to disappoint a lot of people. Why so much pressure on my character? I mean, I understand that he’s the good we want in this crazy world. And me and my mother and my sister want him to come back very desperately. But Melisandre has never brought anyone back to life. Why does it have to be me?”
3. More deaths
Eventually, everyone in GoT will die except maybe for Sansa Stark. In one GoT trailer, a chilling Hall of Faces was showed.
Independent noted in a recent interview with Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, revealed that after reading the script, she was relieved to find her character was “all good”.
4. Daenerys near-death experience
A sneak peak of season six showed Khaleesi survived near-death experience after a fight with Meereen. She was also seen doing her walk of shame with the Dothrakis.
5. Sansa getting her revenge
Turner revealed that her character will plan some kind of revenge this season, The Reporter Times wrote.
“All of this injustice has happened to her the past five season. Now it’s about her getting revenge on people who have destroyed her life right from the beginning. S6 is about her — step by step — trying to eliminate the enemy,” Turner said.
6. Major characters will return
Bran Stark, who the audience missed in the previous season, will be coming back. In one promo photo, Isaac Hempstead Wright’s character was seen standing next to the Three-Eyed Raven.
Paul Kaye, who played Red Priest Thoros of Myr in season three, will be returning this season. A post from the actor’s agent confirmed the news, the Telegraph wrote.
7. Possible Stark reunion
If Arya manages to get herself back to Westeros, there will be a possibility of Spark reunion this season.
Sansa is heading north from Winterfell, knowing that her brothers Bran and Rickon are alive. If Sansa manages to run into Brienne in those snowy woods around Winterfell, she might find out that her sister, Arya, is also alive as well, Vanity Fair noted.
8. Another Red Woman
British actress Melanie Liburd has been cast as another Red Priest. According to a previous script leak, Tyrion meets a Red Priest in Mereen and is told Daenerys is the Lord of Light’s chosen one, the Independent wrote.
9. Rivals will be allies
GoT writer-producer Bryan Cogman teased that there will enemies that will force to work together this season, Inquisitr wrote.
“Characters who were rivals, and in some cases enemies, are being forced to work together, which makes for a lot of juicy dramatic tension. And then there’s the obvious answer in terms of the size of the show,” he said.
10. Episode 2 and 3 titles
HBO has revealed the titles of the second and third episodes of GoT season six – its “Home” and “Oathbreaker” respectively.
“Game of Thrones” season 6 airs every Sunday (Apr. 24) at 9 p.m. on HBO.
