Game of Thrones Season 6 Final Trailer

Season 6 of Game of Thrones is now just days away, and HBO is ramping up excitement with one final teaser.

You know how these things go by now…

Obligatory ominous one liner:

Tyrion: “Whoever you are, wherever you go, someone wants to murder you…Are you afraid?”

Flashes of different scenes, some old, some new, set to thudding drums:


Jon Snow!


White Walker!




Daeanerys whipped by Dothraki!

Sons of the Harpy!

A battle!


Melisandre unbuttoning as she permanently is!

Arya leaping!


Knight’s Landing!

Tyrion again!


The 30-second trailer doesn’t show as a huge amount of new scenes, though we do get glimpses of Ellaria and two Targaryen knights.

It’s pretty late in the day, but we also this week learned that the part of Lothar Frey has been recast for season 6.

He is now being played by Daniel Tuite, according to Watchers on the Wall. Given that Lothar was the character responsible for stabbing to death the pregnant Talisa Stark, perhaps this recasting suggests we could see him get his comeuppance…

Game of Thrones season 6 begins on HBO on Sunday night, being simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic at 2am.
