HBO finally released a new trailer for Game of Thrones season 6, and it’s more than the usual trolling.
Until now, all the trailers HBO has released have been teasers, but now they’ve finally given us a full look at the upcoming season. Season 6 looks like it’s going to be amazing (as always). When Cersei Lannister says, “I choose violence,” the beat drops and the following montage will probably give you chills. You might even find yourself screaming a little on the inside.
Things don’t look good for, well, anyone left standing. Prisoner life doesn’t seem to be treating Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) very well, Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) has an encounter with a white walker (but it looks like he’s standing at least), and Arya (Maisie Williams) doesn’t seem to be adapting to life very well now that she’s blind.
But, of course, we want to know about Jon Snow (Kit Harington). While HBO has cut down on the amount of trolling in this trailer, they do taunt us by showing a very dead looking Jon Snow multiple times.
In a recent interview with Time Out London, Kit Harington danced around the question of whether or not Jon Snow is dead. Harington said, “Look, I’m not in the show anymore. I’m definitely not in the new [season]. I filmed some scenes of me being dead— it’s some of my best work.” When asked what kind of secrets he knows about season 6, Harington only replied,”I don’t have a clue. I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!”
Of course, hearing that Harington filmed a dead Jon Snow is not the kind of news we wanted to hear. But if Snow is somehow miraculously still alive, Harington wouldn’t be allowed to say anything anyway. After all, HBO is being super secretive when it comes to anything related to Game of Thrones season 6. Recently, the network announced they wouldn’t be sending any press copies of the highly anticipated season 6 due to piracy concerns. For more information, mxdwn has the story here.
