HBO has just unleashed a TV trailer for Game of Thrones Season 6, and it brings us some violent and intense new footage from this latest run of episodes. We get a glimpse at the major battles yet to come, and there is even a big dragon tease. It appears that one of Daenerys' dragons is flying over a battlefield, though it's impossible to say if this is Drogon, who flew Daenerys back to the land of the Dothraki at the end of Game of Thrones Season 5, or if it is one of the two she has left imprisoned in Meeren.
The latest Game of Thrones footage opens with Tyrion's voiceover asking, 'Are you afraid? You should be. You're in the great game now, and the great game is terrifying.' This teaser also shows us more of Bran's encounter with the Night's King, which is most likely one of his visions. We even hear the High Sparrow tell Tommen, 'We are all sinful creatures. We deserve death. We all do.'
Jaqen H'ghar gets the last line in this action-packed trailer. Speaking to Arya, he says, 'One way or another the gift will be given. One way or another, a face will be added to the hall.' The man's words have a very threatening undercurrent. If Arya completes her training, she will have to leave her identity behind. Jaqen may sense that she is not ready to go through with that. But he makes the choice clear. If she does not do her duty, it's her face that will be added to the hall.
In Game of Thrones Season 5, Maisie Williams' Arya Stark was blinded by Jaquen H'gar (Tom Wlaschiha), after killing Meryn Trant (Ian Beattie), a life she was not meant to take. She now struggles through the streets of Braavos. But Arya isn't the only female warrior struggling to survive in Game of Thrones Season 6. Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen has become enslaved by the Dothraki warriors who found her at the end of last season. And she will soon discover that this nomadic tribe has a set of rules for former wives of fallen clan leaders. This does not bode well for the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea. But they do not call her the Breaker of Chains for nothing.
For fans who are worried that this new season will spoil the upcoming book The Winds of Winter, series creator David Benioff recently teased that this season is so "divergent" from George R.R. Martin's stories that fans will be equally surprised when the book is released. While we wait for more details on this highly-anticipated season, take a look at this exciting March Madness trailer that was just unleashed by HBO. It's pretty exciting!
