New Game of Thrones season 6 teaser hints at death, death, and more death


With less than a month to go until the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere, HBO has released yet another curious teaser for the fantasy drama series. The 30-second video hints at more death and darkness to come, using a combination of ominous words and battle scenes.

“Are you afraid?” asks Tyrion Lannister (played by Peter Dinklage) to open the teaser. “You should be. You’re in the great game now, and the great game is terrifying.”

Tyrion isn’t the only one whose words tease more danger in the season to come. The High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) does his part as well, warning, “We are sinful creatures. We deserve death. We all do.”

As if you weren’t already convinced that the series’ return would be eventful, new footage shown in the teaser confirms it. After opening with a few slow scenes, the promo quickly ramps up in intensity. We see men preparing for battle, sword fights underway, Sansa (Sophie Turner) running through the forest, and a massive figure breaking down a door. The White Walker extraoardinaire, the Night’s King, even makes a brief appearance against a backdrop of flames.

That’s not the end of it, though; the preview reaches peak foreboding with an addition from Jaqen H’ghar (Tom Wlaschiha). “One way or another, a face will be added to the hall,” he says, as we get a glimpse at the creepy Hall of Faces. A rapid montage of characters follows, and we’re left wondering which character the unfortunate fate awaits.

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss recently revealed that they consider the upcoming season to be the best yet. Based on what we’ve seen in previews so far, we expect their words to hold true when Game of Thrones season 6 premieres on April 24.
