HBO have released the first poster for Game of Thrones Season 6, and you can view that rather interesting tease above and below.
Surely if you are reading this then you saw the end of Season 5, which saw Jon Snow stabbed a number of times, and left for dead. Fans were enraged as their hero was left in a pool of blood in the snow, and it was pretty obvious that Jon “winter is coming” Snow was dead.
However Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow, has allegedly been spotted on set, and Harrington himself has hinted that he is not done with the character. Now the poster for Season 6 reveals two things: one, the show returns in April, and two, Jon Snow will feature in the new season.
Just how will he feature no one knows yet. Showrunners D.B Weiss and David Benioff caught up George R.R. Martin’s books with the last season, so no one knows what the new season has in store.
Is Snow dead, or did he survive? Or, will he be resurrected in some way?
A few weeks ago new cast member Ian McShane revealed that his mystery character, who will appear in just one episode, will be “responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that. [It’s] a one-off episode. That’s why I did it. But I can’t reveal anything, otherwise I will never work again.”
Could he be bringing Snow back from the dead? Or could it be Melisandre (Carice Van Houten), who mysteriously appeared at The Wall in the final episode of Season 5?
Who knows, but this first teaser poster is extremely intriguing, and a little unsettling.
