Hopefully you’re finally coming to terms with what happened in the recently-aired episode 5 of Game of Thrones season 6, but it’s already time to look ahead at what’s coming next week. Some spoilers follow below, so in case you’re not up to date with all of the action in this season of Game of Thrones, best avoid the trailer for episode 6 (Blood of My Blood) the time being.
The trailer focuses on several major characters of Game of Thrones, including some that haven’t had enough screen time so far in this season. We’re looking at you, Sam and Gilly! They’re apparently heading to find Sam’s family, which might play a role in the future of the realm.
The Lannisters and the Tyrells, meanwhile, have promised to stand against the High Sparrow and his desire to see Margaery receive a shameful punishment like Cercei did. Some blood will be shed, and we can only anticipate some fierce conflict in King’s Landing.
Meanwhile, Dany is determined to take what’s hers, which is something we’ve gotten used to over the years.
Conspicuously absent are Jon Snow, other Starks, and the wildlings, but we’ll have to wait for HBO to air episode 6 – or conveniently leak it several hours before it’s set to air – to see the full picture.
