Ser Davos Seaworth, a.k.a. actor Liam Cunningham stopped by ‘Conan’ to promote the Season Six premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’ which arrives in just weeks. On the show, he revealed that George R.R. Martin, the author of the ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ novels upon which ‘GoT’ is based once revealed to him a juicy secret, but of course he wasn’t at liberty to reveal that secret on TV (or ELSE). Likewise, he remained mum on the subject of the biggest cliffhanger dangling over the new season, is Jon Snow really dead (which HBO already gave an official answer on that!).
But he was able to present a never before seen clip from the upcoming premiere, which does feature Jon Snow. Well, his corpse anyway.
You can watch below:
Unfortunately, without context, the clip doesn’t make a ton of sense. It appears that Davros and other loyal Night’s Watch are guarding Jon Snow’s body from the turncoats that want it (for some reason). Davros hatches a plan to get them to safety. And… well, that’s it.
‘Game of Thrones’ returns on April 24, 2016 on HBO. The first new episode is entitled ‘The Red Woman’ and is written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss and directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
The title is a reference to Melisandre, played by Carice van Houten, a priestess of R’hllor, who has brought people back from the dead in the past. So, there’s that.
Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.
Are you ready to see red? What do you hope transpires on the new season of ‘Game of Thrones’?
