Game of Thrones Season 6 gets a real trailer

Is [spoiler] dead? And did [spoiler] [spoiler] really [spoiler] with [spoiler]??

First, the trailer.

Second, there are spoilers in this post if you haven’t read the books or seen the series.

Third, as much as I love covers of songs, James Vincent McMorrow didn’t do justice to Chris Isaak’s aching vocals in the original of “Wicked Game” which you can listen to here along with the far superior guitar work.

Ok, so it looks like Jon Snow is still dead…for now. Though the actor shaved his hair after production ended for the last season, he has since grown it back and he has now said he appears in this season, though it may only be as a corpse or in flashbacks. And with no books to guide us this season, your guess is as good as mine.

Cersei looks like she’s ready to take on the Faith Militant with Jaime by her side, Daenerys is back to being a captive of the Dothraki, Arya appears to be undergoing her assassin training, Sansa is ready to play courtly games, and wholly cow Bran is like a man now or something. One aspect of the currently published books the show has skipped over that it looks like they are now addressing is the Kingsmoot at the Iron Islands, as well.

If you want a more detailed breakdown of the trailer with more spoilerific speculation, check out io9’s analysis. Otherwise, wait for the premiere of the new season on April 24th on HBO. Remember that you can also get HBO without a cable subscription now through the HBO Now app for $15/month and the first month is free.
