Everything We Learned About ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season Six From The World Premiere

Money buys a man’s silence for some time. Lena Headey, in character as Cersei Lannister, threatening to boil you alive buys it forever.

HBO isn’t sending out screeners for Game of Thrones season six to critics, so the only opportunity press folk had to see “The Red Woman” before it airs on April 24 was last night, at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Attendees, including much of the cast (although, notably, minus Kit Harington and preoccupied author George R.R. Martin) and lucky fans, were discouraged from revealing specifics about the premiere, but some details have leaked.

-Season six begins where season five left off, at Castle Black.

-A new “action-packed” trailer is coming.

-“The Red Woman” goes all-out immediately.

Unlike some years, when Thrones started with a somewhat slower paced episode hat re-established all the various storylines, “The Red Woman” hits the ground at full sprint… To some extent, all the climactic beats last year felt like cliffhangers, so this intense new hour picks up right where each left off.

-This season was a monster to film.

Series co-creator David Benioff told the audience that the new season “was a beast to make” — the largest undertaking in the show’s history. “We shot 680 hours of dailies, which translates to 3.7 million feet of film. We shot in five different countries—Northern Ireland, Spain, Croatia, Iceland, and Canada.” (Via)

-The last scene will have you begging for more.

-False leaks are false.

-A brief Dany scene was released.

-Sansa is a “boss ass bitch.”
