Spring is in the air — and Game of Thrones season six is on our doorstep. This weekend, HBO released a teaser for the upcoming season. It's the second trailer so far, though this one, at 30 seconds, is much shorter than the first.
Fortunately for rabid fans, the teaser does include new footage. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) shows he knows well the brutal reality of Westeros, asking rhetorically: "Are you afraid? You should be. You’re in the great game now. And the great game is terrifying."
"A face will be added to the Hall."
If that weren't foreboding enough, two other characters promise death is on the horizon. Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) of the Faceless Men promises: "One way or another, the gift will be given. One way or another, a face will be added to the Hall." Meanwhile, The High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) notes, cooly, that "We are sinful creatures. We deserve death... we all do."
Death will likely come from many angles in season six. This trailer gives us a spooky sihlouette of the leader of the White Walkers, The Night’s King. And winter is coming, as we all know. In addition, Daenerys is in the hands of the Dothraki — always a violent bunch. The bloodshed begins on April 24th.
