HBO has been riding this question of whether or not Jon Snow is actually dead. Granted, no one involved with the show would seriously spill the dirt. That didn’t stop the Internet from wildly speculating. So now comes the official season six Game of Thrones trailer.
And the verdict? Well, Jon Snow does indeed appear to be dead. But you know nothing, GOT viewer…
My personal favorite segment is the brief snip of what is rumored to be a reincarnated The Mountain supporting Cersei Lannister in her battle with the Sparrows.
“Order your man to step aside or there will be violence,” Lancel Lannister advises Cersei as The Mountain looms.
“I choose violence,” she confidently retorts.
Is it right to root for such an evil woman?
The remainder of the Game of Thrones trailer is naturally very dramatic and extremely visually appealing. Plus, the near-acoustic version of “Wicked Game,” while initially jarring, provides stellar audio accompaniment. It is performed by James Vincent McMorrow.
Game of Thrones returns April 24 on HBO.
