Latest Game of Thrones season 6 trailer shows multiple battles brewing


Following last night’s red carpet premiere at LA’s Chinese Theatre, HBO has unfurled an epic second trailer for Game of Thrones season 6.

The two minute clip is something of a scatter-shot affair, touching base with virtually every main character who remains alive in the popular fantasy show after its bloody five seasons. The latest trailer confirms that season 6 will offer continuations of many of the conflicts which had fans on edge during the previous 10-episode stretch. This time, though, it appears that many of these conflicts will come to a head.

The biggest on-screen battles — the struggle against a seemingly growing number of undead warriors in the North, and the fight between the political power of Lannisters and the religious power of the High Sparrow — both look to get physical this season, especially following the public humiliation of Cersei Lannister at the end of Season 5.

The scenes appear to build up to a massive battles between these groups, with battles appearing more frequent in the cold North this season.

“The real war is between the living and the dead,” says Ser Davos Seaworth in the new trailer, “And make no mistake, the dead are coming.”

Once again, we’re given all indication that, at least for the foreseeable future episodes, (spoiler alert) Jon Snow is indeed dead. Unless some major surprise kicks up early on, we can expect Kit Harrington’s beloved character to be absent as season 6 gets underway.

Apart from that dark (and still unsure) revelation, the trailer shows us that characters who have been waiting in the wings will continue their current quests. Arya Stark is shown continuing her training with the Faceless Man, no longer blind, it seems, and given a second chance to kill at the will of the Many-faced god. It appears Daenerys Targaryen will continue to struggle with her new captors, as she is briefly shown being stripped in a chamber. Meanwhile, Tyrion Lannister seems to have put it upon himself to see about her two remaining dragons in captivity.

The clip touches on other main characters more vaguely, showing Sansa Stark and various others only in passing, alluding to plenty of twists and turns continuing from the carnage that was last year’s season finale. But there is still much to be discovered as HBO wisely reveals its biggest spoilers at a snail’s pace.

The new season of Game of Thrones premiers April 24 on HBO.
