It’s that time of the year again when we all anxiously await for “Game of Thrones” trailers and spoilers to tide us until the show returns in April. HBO dropped the new trailer on Tuesday and we got a glimpse of all our favorite characters and not so favorite ones.
The trailer starts to answer everyone’s almost year-long question right away: Is Jon Snow really dead? He looks like it in the new trailer. The trailer starts with Davos Seaworth saying, “He’s gone,” as the camera swoops down upon Castle Black, landing on Jon’s bloody body still lying exactly where we last saw him in Season five.
“Game of Thrones” Season five MIA Bran Stark also makes an explosive comeback as we see him hanging out with the scary White Walker king that Jon Snow had a battle with last year. However, like so many of the briefly-glimpsed visuals in the 90-second trailer, Bran Stark and the White Walker king tandem can be just a vision or a fantasy.
Daenerys might be back with the Dothraki and Jamie and Cersei Lannister are also looking pretty distraught in the trailer, likely over Myrcella’s death. Jamie tells Cersei, “Everything they’ve taken from us we’re going to take back, and more.”
After photos of Jon Snow looking very much alive and filming surfaced on Twitter, HBO tries to convince us again that our favorite man from the night’s watch is really dead by flashing Davos sombrely looking over a pyre. It looks like it’s intended for Jon’s body, burned before it can turn into a White Walker.
In an interview with TimeOut London, Kit Harington also insists that he’s not on the show anymore, “Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series.”
Regarding filming new scenes for season six, he said, “I filmed some scenes of me being dead – [jokingly] it’s some of my best work.”
In the trailer we also see other characters such as Jorah Mormont, Daario Naharis, Sansa Stark, Tyrion Lannister, Lancel Lannister, probably a Ned Stark flashback, Tommen and his Kingsguard, the Boltons, and other “Game of Thrones” characters. See for yourself.
