HBO has released a new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones, and it’s pretty creepy. The new teaser gives us a look inside the House of White and Black, where we see the faces of several characters who have died – and a few who haven’t (at least not yet). Check out the video below!
This is the second teaser trailer for Game of Thrones’ sixth season, but the first one included only old footage from the previous seasons.
In this new trailer, we see the House of White and Black, which is the headquarters for a group of assassins in Braavos known as the Faceless Men. As fans know, members of the Faceless Men can take on various appearances using the faces of people who have died – so the collection of faces seen in the preview have all, presumably, come from dead people. That explains why Ned Stark, Catelyn Stark, and Robb Stark are all there. Jon Snow is here, too, even though some people don’t think he’s dead. And hey, is that Tyrion Lannister at the end, along with Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, and a few other characters that are supposed to be very much alive?
We’ve never been quite so clueless about an upcoming Game of Thrones season, because before now the books were always one step ahead of the show. This sixth season, however, will be “based on” the sixth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series: The Winds of Winter, which is not yet finished. That means that even George R.R. Martin’s most dedicated fans can’t say for sure what will happen next.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out. The new season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on April 24.
