You’re in the Great Game now and the Great Game is terrifying. ~Tyrion

HBO has released the official Red Band trailer for Season 6 of Game of Thrones and it is stunning and exciting. Set to James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Chris Isaac’s Wicked Game, we see grim glimpses into every story line. Game of Thrones Season 6 looks to see our favorite heroes and villains rise, fall or try to just stay alive.

Watch the trailer and then read our observations!


Here’s are a few notable scenes in the trailer (in no particular order):

  • Melisandre making a telling confession
  • Jaime pleading with Cersei
  • Jorah finding Danerys ring
  • Daenerys as a refugee in filthy clothing seemingly going back to Vaes Dothrak as a prisoner (The horse statues give that away)
  • Cersei choosing violence against the Sparrows with the Frankenstein-like Mountain (maybe?) at her side
  • The Wildlings warring with the Boltons
  • Theon’s in some trouble. Again.
  • Ayra in action
  • The most exciting is Bran using his Sight (or possibly warging) and seeing the Night’s King. Whoah!
  • Davos getting ready to fight to protect a dead Jon Snow’s body – USING LONGCLAW! (Longclaw is the valyrian steel sword given to Snow by Jeor Mormont)
  • Is Davos really protecting a dead Jon Snow? Is Melisandre going to resurrect him? Why is Ghost lying next to him? Is Ghost dead too? Or just guarding him? No wait, I think I saw Ghost breathe. Am I going crazy with all these thoughts because of this trailer? I think we know the answer to that.

Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on April 24th.
