Game of Thrones S6 trailer drops – and so will your jaw

The first full trailer for the forthcoming season of Game of Thrones has offered another look at Jon Snow, but left no definitive verdict over whether it could be our last.


The trailer, set to a version of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”, begins by showing Snow’s prone body following his bloody betrayal at the hands of his Night’s Watch brothers.

What happens next is up for interpretation. Later in the trailer the Red Priestess, Melisandre is shown placing her hands over the Stark’s body, now laying on a slab.

Whether, as rumoured, she’s attempting to cast some dark magic to revive him, or simply mourning his loss is unclear.

Whatever she’s up to, everyone’s favourite barely literate geordie Davos Seaworth looks like he’s trying to put a stop to it.

Elsewhere, sibling bedfellows Cersei and Jaime Lannister still seem to be under the cosh from those religious lads.

Meanwhile, Daenerys Targaryen’s brief cup run living in the lap of luxury looks to have come to an end, and Tyrion has some foreboding words for Sansa Stark. Oh, and her much older-looking brother Bran encounters a White Walker. It sucks to be a Stark.

Since this is a Red Band trailer there’s plenty of fighting, death and a solid dose of sauce, of course.

The Game of Thrones S6 premiere will air on 24 April on HBO in the United States and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom.
