You have to hand it to HBO, they sure know how to get the hype machine rolling.
The first official teaser trailer for Game of Thrones season six is here and it definitely introduces more questions than it answers. The only new material in it involves Bran Stark, who we didn’t see at all in season five. It looks like he and the Three-Eyed Raven are going to get things done this season.
Speaking of which, that’s legendary actor Max von Sydow — who’s taking on the role of the Raven this season — doing the ominous voiceover work. His “the past is written,” remarks seem to hint that death could very well be permanent, which could spell bad news for fans still hoping Jon Snow will get a resurrection at some point. Maybe he will? Who even knows with this show anymore?
The lingering shots of Jon Snow’s corpse really get under the skin, don’t they?
Game of Thrones returns sometime this April on HBO. This might be a shot in the dark, but it will probably have killing…and sex.
