We are two weeks away from the season premiere of Game of Thrones’ sixth season and HBO has released an epic new trailer that gives us a lot more hints of what we can expect on April 24th. In short, it looks like the white walkers are finally on the march south, Tyrion is going to be ruling Meereen much as he once ruled King’s Landing, and Cersei and Jaime Lannister are out to get bloody revenge on all who have wronged them.
Here is the full trailer:
Some interesting tidbits:
- It looks like Jaime Lannister is not happy about what the High Sparrow and his crew did to Cersei last season with the infamous “walk of shame” through King’s Landing. And it looks like he’s going to do something very nasty about it.
- It seems Theon and Sansa have indeed escaped Ramsay Bolton’s clutches, which is a relief. Now here’s hoping Ramsay has a bloody death ahead of him that will put even Joffrey’s to shame.
- There will be a lot more supernatural elements than in past seasons. In this trailer alone, we spot the Night’s King and his army of undead white walkers, a giant that smashes through the great wall, and a very angry looking dragon.
- We also get some glimpses of the resurrected Frankenstein’s monster incarnation of the Mountain. Unsurprisingly, it seems that he’s going to be killing people and breaking things.
All told, this looks like a very exciting season. April 24th can’t get here soon enough.
