    Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer (RED BAND) (HBO)01:42

    Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer (RED BAND) (HBO)


    0:01 - 0:10 - It remains to be explained why the Night's Watch officers mutinied against Jon in the TV series; in the novels it was because he wanted to fight the Boltons. Why stab Jon over letting wildlings through the Wall...after letting the wildlings through the Wall? (See Mother's Mercy - Jon Snow's fate)

    0:10-0:15 - Other promo pics confirm Jaime is returning to King's Landing with Myrcella's dead body; she hasn't been poisoned in the novels yet, though some of the Sand Snakes were leaving to infiltrate the royal court, implying they might.

    0:19-0:22 - Roose Bolton looks disapprovingly at a nervous Ramsay, who rode out to battle against his father's orders, allowing Sansa and Theon to escape.

    (This may spur Roose to renounce Ramsay as his heir - and in retaliation, maybe Ramsay will kill Roose?)

    0:23 - The big battle promised between the remnants of the Stark-loyal Houses in the North and the Boltons.

    0:33-37 - A widowed khaleesi must return to Vaes Dothrak, to join the Dosh khaleen (council of crones), but after Drogo died Daenerys refused. Khal Jhaqo found her, and he is her enemy, but he can't just kill her because it is sacrilege to kill a widowed khaleesi. So she's being forced back to Vaes Dothrak (not mounted, but in shame on foot).

    Casting reports indicate that a great gathering of all of the scattered Dothraki khalasars is going to take place in Vaes Dothrak. The crowd shot of all the khalasars entering the city was filmed in Spain and included 1,200 extras.

    0:43 - 0:45 - The ironborn started a major new subplot in the fourth novel but it was pushed back to Season 6. Euron Greyjoy has returned to the Iron Islands, and at his instigation House Greyjoy plans a massive new offensive against the weakened mainland. He is opposed by his niece Yara Greyjoy, who wants to preserve their forces.

    0:56 - Cersei's champion is called "Robert Strong" in the novels, though it is obvious to many that he is Gregor Clegane, revived and transformed into some kind of 8 foot tall Frankenstein's monster by Qyburn.

    0:58 - A flashback scene to young Eddard Stark and his companions at the end of Robert's Rebellion: the Showdown at the Tower of Joy, fighting the last of the Targaryen Kingsguard.

    1:03 - I can't tell what this ship on the ocean is

    1:04 - Arya has been rendered blind, poisoned after mis-using a Faceless Men mask for a personally motivated kill. The Waif resents her and will apparently attack her. Arya will have to think like a cat to survive this.

    1:05 - Margaery Tyrell remains imprisoned by the Faith Militant.

    1:06 - Is that a man killing a wight with fire?

    1:07-1:08 - montage:

    • battle in the north; note the House Umber and House Karstark banners showing them on the Bolton side.
    • shutters of Meereen's pyramid blown in by gust of wind from dragon wings?
    • Theon running from Bolton soldiers

    1:09 - Euron Greyjoy being ceremonially drowned (to be revived with CPR) in a religious ceremony by one of the Drowned Men priests. Balon's cruel and cunning younger brother, he was first mentioned by Tyrion way back in Season 1 episode 4. In the novels he is a MAJOR antagonist, as important as Roose Bolton and Walder Frey.

    1:10 - Brienne of Tarth killing the Bolton soldiers chasing Theon?

    1:11 - The hand reaching towards a brazier of fire is actually Daenerys, not Melisandre: you can tell from the distinctive ring she wears on her index finger. It's actually her mother's ring and the only piece of costuming that has remained unchanged for Daenerys throughout the series (she's worn it since the very first episode). See "Costumes: Major Characters - Daenerys Targaryen"

    • Melisandre opening her gown yet again for some reason - but looking sad. This couldn't be a Nissa Nissa moment for Azor Ahai?
    • Jon's body on the slab

    1:13-1:15 - This is in Braavos (you can tell from the costumes). The person jumping off a roof is actually Arya, as she is attacked and chased by the Waif.

    • More northern battle

    1:15-1:16 - Apparently Yara Greyjoy kissing a prostitute. Novels never mentioned her as bisexual, but she is described as very sexually active. Alternatively, recall that she once let her long lost brother Theon feel her up sexually so she could mock him about his unwitting incestuous action later. She's a prankster - maybe this shot is taken out of context and she's just kissing a prostitute to excite/toy with/mock some ironborn men.

    EDIT: I asked GRRM via his blog and he responded: No, book-Asha Greyjoy is not bisexual nor has she even experimented with women.

    1:16 - Euron Greyjoy at Pyke castle on a rope bridge during a rainstorm.

    1:16 - More of the flashback scene of young Eddard Stark fighting the Targaryen Kingsguard. Note the Kingsguard helmet and the Targaryen dragon sigil on his chest plate.

    1:17 - I think that might be Varys's "Little birds" clubbing someone to death. Major scene from the end of the fifth novel.

    1:18 - House Tyrell's army approaches the Great Sept, demanding Margaery's release

    1:21-1:22 - In a dream sequence, Bran Stark stands with Night's King (you can tell it's a dream/vision because Bran can only stand in his visions)

    1:30 - stinger: Jon Snow's body clearly on slab, with Ghost. Davos draws Longclaw.

    • If it's worth noting, when Brienne is killing that Bolton soldier, it looks like after the Battle of Winterfell in the forests where Stannis was killed.

      I wonder if the flayed man is Stannis...

    • I love seeing Alliser and Yarwyck trying to break down the door, I can't wait to see their reaction when Jon's resurrected. This single event will give justice to entire plotlines, including Melisandre's, Stannis's, and the Brotherhood Without Banners arc. Also Ian McShane confirming the Hound's survival and redemption? *hearty laugh* What a season! Snowbowl and Cleganebowl get HYPE ;)

    • Looking great, absolutely can't wait. Highlight was obvious Tower of Joy set up, think I can make out Sean Bean at the front, but realising that the Targaryen knight is probably Arthur Dayne, meaning the right fighter is Ned and the left northman is Howland Reed, was the best bit. Other thoughts: good to see Euron, so is Dany being taken to Vaes Dothrak?, battle of Winterfell looks intense. What do you guys think of the trailer? ...

      I think the mutiny will just be due to racism against the wildlings to save on time

      Curious but if the man being drowned is Euron then where's his trademark eyepatch?

      Considering the matching background, location in S5 ep10, and the Bolton soldiers I think Brienne's and Theon's scenes are consecutive and she'll rescue him and/or Sansa. notice the dogs next to Theon, might be Ramsay's pack

      The two women kissing- Yara is the one on the right, left could be Alysane Mormont, only background doesn't match the north

      The Tower of Joy is clearly going to happen. The Targaryen knight is shown to be good with swords, making me think he is Arthur Dayne. Also note he is about to strike someone who looks like Ned whilst a fellow northman, shown by his armour, goes to intercept, I.e Howland Reed.

      No hints so far as to Davos taking a trip to Skagos?

      I think the burning man on the cross is Stannis' corpse

    • "Racism against the wildlings" doesn't make logical sense - again, if he hated them so much, why not just refuse to let them through the Wall in the first place?

        Loading editor
    • A thought occurs: Yara is prone to messing with people, this is a woman who let her long-lost brother feel her up purely so she could mock him for unknowing incestuous action later.

      So if the shot is of her kissing another woman, maybe she's just messing with a crowd of ironborn warriors - you know, kissing the prostitute they're passing around to get them excited and stuff. Scene might be taken out of context.

    • Why the heck would Yara Greyjoy be making out with Alysane Mormont? A character not even introduced in the TV series yet?

    • Given the last thing we saw was the mutiny Thorne may try to frame the wildlings to destroy Jon's attempt to integrate them. This avoids the taboo of mutiny as well as dissuade anyone who was changing their mind. He didn't let him in immediately so he might have formed the plan when he saw Jon didn't die, which given his stereotypical view of the wildlings he may have expected

      I couldn't think of another woman she interacted with tbf. Your idea sounds like it could work if her attempt to prepare for the kingsmoot is shown.

    • No, if it was their intention to frame the wildlings they wouldn't have set up a sign saying "Traitor" on it.

      Changing the cause of the mutiny from "the Boltons" to "the wildlings" just doesn't make sense. If he would go so far as to kill Jon over it....why not just lock the gate to them BEFORE that?

      Stabbing Jon afterwards doesn't stop the wildlings from already being on the south side of the Wall. All it would do is anger the wildlings who now see Jon as their savior.

      The TV writers just plain screwed up. I only have a glimmer of hope they'll retroactively say it was due to the Boltons.

    • I'll agree that the Bolton reasoning is more logical, as well as not making the watch look like short sighted idiots. Given how the trailer shows Tormound fighting in the north and a clear divide between Thorne and Davos, probably over Jon's resurrection, this death might see the factions at castle black divide.

      The mutineers could launch a surprise attack on the wildlings. The main threat wasn't just the white walkers but the wildlings launching another attempt to get over the wall. Hosting them and slaughtering them by surprise might explain Thorne's apparent idiocy. Interpretation all depends on what happens next at castle black

    • I've generally got a wait and see attitude.

    • There's two things they can do to retcon that

      • The possibility could be that, with the Watch having so little men left since they're only just recovering from Mance Rayder's recent attack, they couldn't defend against Jon/Edd/Tormund in addition to the wildlings if Wun Wun lifted the gate to allow entrance into the tunnel.
      • Or they could just go the most likely route and have Alliser admit letting them in was a mistake but they decided to go along with Jon's killing anyway because the plot was only hatched afterwards and Alliser couldn't be certain of the Watch's loyalty when pressured with the choice of letting them through.

      But I'm more inclined to believe it will be the Pink Letter situation from the books. I think people doubt it because they feel the show often heads in different directions but they've retconned stuff in the past. Either way, Jon's death is the most recent GoT scene - "traitor" may have only been the twist of the knife, not their be-all end-all motive.

      But yeah I'm so hyped mainly for Jon's plotline this season, the clear as day wink-wink nudge-nudge hints they gave us with his scenes in the trailer just makes me so excited.

    • I don't know if I said it before in this thread, but my hope is that they just wanted it to be a surprise, but fully intended to LATER have Alliser explain in Season 6 he did it because Melisandre brought news of the Bolton victory, and they feared that if the Boltons were now indeed in a position of strength, they'd never let the Watch continue to live if the last known male of Stark blood was their leader. And they framed the whole "Traitor" thing to "sell" it to the Boltons.

    • I asked George R.R. Martin and he responded:

      http://grrm.livejournal.com/477725.html?thread=24114205#t24114205

      Question: "Is Asha Greyjoy (renamed Yara in the TV series) bisexual in the books, or it was implied, and we just didn't catch on to it?"

      GRRM: "I have a number of lesbian and bisexual women in the novels (and a couple who experiment), but Asha is not one of them. Unless I am forgetting something..."

      So sayeth the shepherd.

    • Hi,

      We don't plan on creating a fannotation video for Captain America: Civil War. We instead wrote a feature on Fandom: http://fandom.wikia.com/articles/exciting-moments-captain-america-civil-war-trailer

      These types of features get more views and require far less resources to create. We will likely continue with these types of features in the future, with a very limited slate of fannotation videos. - Brandon Rhea.

    • 1:03 - I can't tell what this ship on the ocean is

      1:13-1:15 - This is in Braavos (you can tell from the costumes). The person jumping off a roof is actually Arya, as she is attacked and chased by the Waif.

      • More northern battle

      1:30 - stinger: Jon Snow's body clearly on slab, with Ghost. Davos draws Longclaw.

      Wild theories ahead!

      "More northern battle" This shows a soldier with two swords fighting two other soldiers. The two sworded soldier has a targaryen emblem on his chest. And are those soldiers wearing Westerosi Armor? That'd mean that some Targ soldiers sailed to Westeros. The unknown ship at 1:03? Last but not least, what if Davos is securing Jon's body so Melisandre can revive it? I hope this is something interesting.
