‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer Picks at Old Wounds

Game of Thrones - Jon Snow - Season 6 -

While the flames of speculation surrounding the uncertain fate of Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) continue to blaze on, the new ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer picks at the scab left from last season’s finale.

“The past is already written. The ink is dry.”

While Fans of ‘The Walking Dead’ only had to endure a few brutal episodes before discovering the fate of their beloved Glenn, ‘Game of Throne’ fans have not been as lucky. The fifth season’s finale erupted with pulpy plot points only to leave many, if not all, of them looming until the following season – most notably the apparent demise of Jon Snow.


Watch the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Teaser Trailer below.

The trailer predominately focuses on the pending fate of Jon Snow. As an ominous voice alludes to the permanence of past events, the sense of total uncertainty is inescapable.

“They have no idea what’s going to happen.”

The most painful part of the HBO mega-hit’s new spot is not simply the uncertainty of Snow’s fate, but that it doesn’t include a single new clip. Instead fans are forced to relive the most stirring bits of dramatics from the Season 5 finale – including the infamous “for the watch” Jon Snow stabbing. Although it doesn’t give any closure, it does re-kindle the dormant feelings of ‘GOT’ excitement.

On a personal note, I do agree that the less we see in a ‘GOT’ trailer the more substantial the experience will be when we do see what “Fire and Ice” the future holds in-store. On the other hand, it would be nice for a small tease as to which side the coin is going to land for Season 6. Nothing too overt – just a small little token. Overall this condensed fifth season finale succeeds in re-awakening dormant enthusiasm, but fails to bring any new reveals to the table.


‘Game of Thrones’ returns to HBO for its 6th Season in April.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
