Season Six Game of Thrones spoilers!
Next month we return to the land of Westeros for the sixth season of Game of Thrones and we couldn’t be more excited to find out what’s in store for our favourite characters.
Thankfully the good people over at HBO recently released the trailer so to sate the craving we’ve got for some regicidal action we’ve put a team of expert maesters on the job of deciphering the trailer mysteries and secrets.
Here’s our best insights, opinions and theories, be warned spoilers ahead…obviously.
John Snow looks pretty dead
Despite the rumours of his survival the 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch seems to have passed away, the pool of bloods a huge hint.
A Lannister always pays his debts
It’s looking likely that this boat’s Jaime returning to King’s Landing with the body of his dead daughter Myrcella. We imagine all hell will break out when Cersei finds out what happened to her only daughter.
We’re the only ones who matter
Seems the Lannisters are trying to take back everything they’ve lost over the last few season and hints at dark times ahead for those who’ve earnt the lions fury.
Paying his respects
We’re willing to bet this is Ser Davos paying his respects to the poor Princess Shireen who was pointlessly sacrificed to ensure Stannis’s win over House Bolton. With Stannis dead where will the loyal Onion Knight go now?
Dark deeds in mind?
After Roose admitted that there’s another, perhaps more legitimate, Bolton baby on the way could Ramsay be planning an untimely end for his dear old dad?
Tough times for The North
After Stannis’ army was crushed things look bleak for The North and the Bolton’s reign of terror looks to have gotten far worse.
The Lord of Light has lost a follower
Melisandre seems to have lost her unshakeable faith in the Lord of Light and why isn’t Ser Davos slitting the witches throat for what she did to Shireen. Could he need her for something more important than revenge? Like resurrecting someone?
Jorah’s hunting Daenerys
Jorah and Daario are hot on the heels of Daenerys after her dramatic exit from Meereen he’ll also be dealing with the effects of the crippling greyscale disease.
From queen to prisoner
Times are tough for Daenerys who, judging by her lack of horse, appears to be a prisoner of a khalasar. If only she had dragons to rescue her.
Speaking of dragons
It seems Tyrion may be paying the dragons a visit in their underground prison. Could the fan theory that he’s destined to ride one of the beasts be about to come true?
That which is dead can never lie
It seems that the Lannisters are desperate enough to unleash their secret undead weapon to keep themselves in power and crush the Faith Militant.
Back to the past?
That couldn’t be a young Ned Stark on the left could it? Other clips in the trailer show soldiers wearing the seal of the Targaryens, could we about to see how Roberts rebellion happened?
Theon looks worried
After finally reasserting his identity and helping Sansa to escape the clutches of Ramsay it looks like Theon’s not in for an easy season. Lets hope he at least manages to stay out of the Bolton’s hands for an episode or two.
A vision of things to come
As Bran’s walking in this scene were guessing it’s a vision but the looming threat of the Night’s King seems to be something that the people of Westeros can no longer ignore.
Apologies for what you’re about to see
As we know the Night’s Watch burn their dead. Is Ser Davos about to fight and die over Jon’s corpse? Somebody must have big plans for Jon Snow.
That was cathartic, of course it doesn’t really answer anything at the same time, at least all will be revealed next month.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
