Good news for Game of Thrones fans desperate for any scrap of new content they can get! While there’s still no word on whether George R.R. Martin will finish Winds of Winter before the show returns, HBO has been kind enough to give us our first glimpse of season six footage (the teaser trailer was all content from past episodes).
It’s tucked deep into a video promoting the shows and movies subscribers can look forward to in 2016, and consists of three quick spoiler-free shots with no Jon Snow in sight. Let’s take a look… the Game of Thrones stuff comes in at 2:15.
There’s Daenerys Targaryen wishing she’d taken Missandei on her dragon so she’d have someone to comb her hair.
And Ramsay Bolton along with some battle-ready bannermen… is he about to come upon the body of Stannis Baratheon?
Last but not least, here’s Cersei Lannister looking surprisingly calm for someone about to destroy the Faith for what they did to her at the end of season five. She’s giving her son Tommen a nice hug; I hope she gets those in while she can because the odds of him surviving all the way through season six are slim.
Game of Thrones is set to return sometime near the end of April. Until then, we’ll keep sharing these tender morsels of footage as they come out.
