The exclusive photos of Game of Thrones are out!
And we are just as excited as you are for the upcoming sixth season of dragons, magic, swordfight, and White Walkers. Going beyond the expectations of George R.R. Martin’s readers, lots of mayhem and surprises have been revealed in the past five seasons, causing fans to stir up their own speculations with the hints dropped by HBO in anticipation of the Season 6 premiere on April 24.
Just last Friday (February 12, 2016), HBO released intriguing photos via social media and its official site. It has since become the instant talk of the social media realm!
Here are some notable scenes to watch out for (based on what we suspect to happen):
Sansa and Theon survived the jump!
Looks like Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) are alive after jumping from the high walls of the castle. Although Theon isn’t totally up on both feet, well, at least it’s safe to expect that they lived and will hopefully continue to live throughout the season.
And Ramsay is not pleased
Sansa and Theon took a leap of faith (literally) just to escape from Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). We’re 100-percent sure that he will not be pleased with the bold move of his wife.
The Greyjoys are back
We, however, can see a snap of someone who will be delighted at this new development! Here’s Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide), albeit with a rather doubtful look. We wonder what the Greyjoy patriarch saw?
Plus, we have here Theon’s sister Yara (Gemma Whelan), still looking all bold and brave.
Look who’s standing: It’s Bran!
After a few seasons of being pushed around in a wheelbarrow and being escorted by Hodor, our little Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) is up on his feet (or he seem to be). Who knows, this might just be another vision? Anyway, we’re happy to see him standing straight next to the Three-Eyed Raven.
Arya has gone blind and homeless
With ragged clothes, an empty dish, and white eyes, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) hits the streets once again but this time, minus the “oysters, clams, and cockles!” Looks like she was kicked out of the House of Black and White after defying the Faceless Man.
Khaleesi has been captured…
Ending the fifth season with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) being surrounded by a Dothraki-like clan, we see here a tied-up Queen of Dragons (minus her dragons) for the sixth season. It looks like she’s facing a tribe leader. Our Khaleesi has some explaining to do!
And Tyrion is still drinking
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is still adding fun to his life by drinking wine… while talking to Daenery’s subjects — Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson). Not much has changed, maybe? It’s just a new location for him and Varys (Conleth Hill) – plus a new set of people to advice.
Expect more mourning
Behold another fallen character – Myrcella Baratheon (Nell Tiger Free). After being rescued by her father, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Myrcella died on their way back home as they are traversing the seas..thanks to a “kiss of death” towards the end of the fifth season.
Mourn and shame
We see Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is back and she seem to be back in ship-shape – with a gorgeous new hairdo – despite her historic walk of shame. If you missed this scene, then shame on you! *Shame bells*
And more shame? (We hope not)
Septa Unella (Hannah Waddingham) has a new prisoner to shame and the person on the foreground looks like Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). We hope this doesn’t lead to another walk of shame!
Melisandre is back at the wall
Don’t keep your hopes up that she will be bringing back Jon Snow from the dead… but it may be possible. Let’s not slam down this idea … not until Jon Snow’s body is yet to be burned. Yes? Yes!
