16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer

HBO finally released the trailer for Game of Thrones season 6 just a month before the season begins and there are lot of interesting things hidden in the trailer. It is to be noted that this will be the first season which has gone beyond the books. So we will have to rely on the various things that we know that might happen, along with news that we got while the shooting for the season was underway.

If there is something that we have missed, then do tell us about it in the comments section.

 

1. Jon Snow is dead…for the time being

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Jon Snow is dead
The trailer starts off from where the last season ended and Jon Snow is still lying on the ground motionless and dead. So there seems to be no dramatic scene where we can expect him being saved by Ser Davos or Melisandre or anyone else. We also hear the voice of Ser Davos saying that “he’s gone”, which means Jon Snow is officially dead!

 

2. Jaime returns to King’s Landing with the body of Myrcella

A ship belonging to House Martell is seen returning to King’s Landing. This has to be Jaime Lannister coming back with the body of his daughter Myrcella who was poisoned during the season 5 finale. We are certain that Myrcella is dead because HBO had recently released the first pictures from season 6, which included a picture of the dead body of Myrcella.

We also see the grieving parents and Jaime promises Cersei, “Everything they’ve taken from us we’re going to take back, and more”. Things don’t look good for the Martells in season 6 as we know that you don’t mess with Cersei and Jaime, especially when they want to take revenge.

 

3. Jon Snow is still dead

We see Ser Davos looking at a pyre. Now we can’t exactly tell for whom it is intended but going from what we have seen in the trailer so far, it might be for Jon Snow, to ensure that he doesn’t turn into a wight but it can mean something else too. We will have to wait and watch.

4. The Boltons go to war

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - The Boltons go to war

We can see the burning body of a flayed man on a cross with lot of soldiers in the background. This can’t be the work of anyone else but the Boltons. A big war seems to be approaching, which we can see in the later parts of the trailer. It might be a war between the Boltons and other Northerners, who are joined by the Wildlings. Here are some of the scenes in the later part of the trailer.

If you check the above image carefully, you will see Tormund Giantsbane is surrounded by Bolton shields. So this confirms that Boltons and the Wildlings are involved in the battle.

 

5. Ser Jorah and Daario are close to finding Daenerys

In the last season, Ser Jorah Mormont and Daario Naharis left Meereen to find Daenerys and they seem to have successfully tracked down the place where Daenerys came across the Dothraki warriors. Ser Jorah also finds the ring that Daenerys had dropped in the season 5 finale.

 

6. Daenerys is captured and taken to Vaes Dothrak

Daenerys doesn’t seem to be happy while walking with the Dothraki, which indicates that she is being taken against her will. We also see her looking at a huge statue of a horse, which might mean that she has arrived in Vaes Dothrak, which is the only city of the Dothraki people.

 

7. Kingsmoot!

Finally after a long hiatus we are going to visit the Iron Islands. It seems that we are seeing the Kingmoot in the scene. For those who don’t know, it is a ceremony in which the Iron Islanders choose their next king. We also see Euron Greyjoy in the second image who is played by the Danish actor Pilou Asbæk.

An important thing to be noted here is that in the books Balon Greyjoy is already dead but there hasn’t been any mention of his death in the TV show. So the Kingsmoot confirms that Balon Greyjoy has died.

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Kingsmoot

Also, a rope bridge is an important part of an incident that involves Balon Greyjoy and in the trailer we can see Euron Greyjoy on a rope bridge. So the show creators are trying to indicate something. The book readers might understand what I am saying.

8. Theon and Sansa seem to escape the Boltons with the help of Brienne

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Theon and Sansa seem to escape the Boltons with the help of Brienne

In the season finale we saw Theon and Sansa jumping from the walls of Winterfell and in the trailer we come across Sansa standing in a hall with a chandelier in the background. This might mean that she has successfully managed to escape and taken shelter with some ally of the Starks or it might also mean that she is in Castle Black. We don’t know for sure right now.

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Theon and Sansa seem to escape the Boltons with the help of Brienne

However in the trailer we can see that Theon has been surrounded by soldiers, most probably Bolton soldiers and we can see Sansa running away in another scene. So we suppose she is running away from the soldiers while Theon is surrounded by them. In the trailer we can see Brienne killing a soldier.

In the season finale, she was in the forest near Winterfell where she killed Stannis. So there’s a good chance that she comes across Theon and Sansa and saves them from the Bolton soldiers and takes them to some safe place. I feel that she will take them to Castle Black as she knows that Jon Snow is at the Wall but she must not have any idea that he was stabbed by the brothers of the Night’s Watch.

We also see Littlefinger in a forest but we have no idea how he could be related to the scene at the moment.

 

9. Ser Robert Strong vs the Sparrows

Cersei’s walk of shame only ensured that she could go back to the Red Keep and that she wasn’t completely off the hook and in the trailer we can see Lancel and other sparrows coming back for Cersei but they don’t know that she has Ser Robert Strong AKA Mountain-stein or Franken-mountain on her side. Foolish Lancel tells Cersei to order her man to step aside or there will be violence and Cersei responds by saying “I choose violence”.

It’s not going to end well for the Sparrows. No way!!

 

10. Ned Stark is back!

No, Ned Stark is not going to be resurrected but we definitely are going to see some flashbacks. We are going to see the Tower of Joy flashback, where Ned Stark and Ser Arthur Dayne fight and eventually Ned finds his sister Lyanna. This scene is important as many believe it will give us information about Jon Snow’s parents.

 

11. Arya Stark goes the Daredevil way

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Arya Stark goes the Daredevil way

In the last season we saw that Arya Stark had become blind and we see the same in this trailer. However as we can see in the 2nd image, she still manages to do incredible stunts. So either Arya might get back her eyesight or she has the ability like Daredevil to see even though she is blind.

12. Margaery makes a deal with the High Sparrow

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Margaery makes a deal with the High Sparrow

Cersei Lannister managed to get free from the clutches of the Sparrows in the last season but Margaery and her brother Loras are still in prison. There have been reports that in this season Margaery joins the Faith Militant to free herself.

 

13. Things go from bad to worse in Meereen

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Things go from bad to worse in Meereen

In season 5 things weren’t looking good in Meereen as the Sons of the Harpy almost managed to kill Daenerys. In the trailer we can see Queen’s chambers being blown apart. Tyrion seems to be having a tough time trying to contain the Sons of the Harpy.

 

14. Melisandre might try to resurrect Jon Snow

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Melisandre might try to resurrect Jon Snow
16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Melisandre might try to resurrect Jon Snow

Melisandre starts undressing and then she places her hand on Jon Snow’s head. This must mean that Melisandre is trying to resurrect Jon Snow. Whenever we have seen Melisandre undressing, it always has to do something with magic and there’s a good chance that she tries to use the power of the Lord of Light to resurrect Jon Snow.

In the trailer we see Ser Davos taking the Longclaw in his hand and threatening people in front of Jon Snow’s body. We guess that he makes sure that the brothers of the Night’s Watch dont burn Jon Snow’s body and in the 4th image we can see that people of the Night’s Watch are trying to break down a door, while Ser Alliser Throne is standing behind. This might mean that Ser Davos is trying to protect Jon Snow from the Night’s Watch so that Melisandre can resurrect him.

 

15. Bran Stark meets the Night’s King

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Bran Stark meets the Night’s King

For me this is one of the best scene from the trailer. Bran Stark is standing next to the Night’s King. It is important to note that Bran is standing. So this is a vision and we have to admit that the Three Eyed Raven has taught Bran well. This might mean that we will get to know more details about the Night’s King and the White Walkers.

 

16. Jon Snow might be alive!

16 things we learned from Game of Thrones season 6 trailer - Jon Snow might be alive

Take a look at the image carefully. The person on the horse looks like Kit Harington. So that must mean that Jon Snow is alive and what we said in point 14 is true. Also this will also mean that there’s a high chance that Sansa reaches Castle Black. Scroll up and check point 8. Jon Snow or Jon Stark or whatever he might be called after being resurrected might rally the Northerners and the Wildlings and attack the Boltons.

Here’s a GIF of the scene

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer Season 6 is finally out! The comic book/supernatural based hit series came to an emotional end on September 10 this year with the release of its final season. The show paid a lot of homages to various pop culture icons, including Game of Thrones. Let’s have a look at all the times Game of Thrones was referenced by various characters on Lucifer.

 

Season 3 Episode 14

Cain aka Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) has been roaming the earth for thousands of years. He’s tired of losing his loved ones due to an immortality curse placed on him by God. After a long and bloody skirmish with Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), he says and believes he has ‘nothing to live for‘. Amenadiel replies, “Have you tried Game of Thrones?”

 

Season 4 Episode 8

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer is dealing with his emotional issues, after getting back with his ex Eve (Inbar Lavi). Chloe (Lauren German) tells Lucifer about a prophecy, that apocalyptic events will occur on earth and Hell will freeze over if Lucifer meets his true love. To which he replies, “Perhaps winter is coming.

 

Season 5 Episode 9

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

God (Dennis Haysbert) is on earth and organizes a small family reunion at Linda’s (Rachael Harris) house. Lucifer considers himself the smartest in the family, much like Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones. He drags the chair to sit at the other head of the table in an equal position to his father. Tyrion does something similar at the small council in King’s Landing.

 

Season 5 Episode 16

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Michael and Lucifer (both played by Tom Ellis) have agreed to decide who will be the new God of their universe, by a poll that Lucifer is most likely to lose. All the angels show up at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and Michael is wearing a special medieval warrior-like attire for the occasion. Lucifer mocks him for his poor fashion sense, asking him “Is winter coming or something?

 

Season 5 Episode 16

Here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones references in Lucifer

Lucifer and Michael are locking horns for a final showdown, because Michael is willing to kill those who won’t obey him. In a dramatic and long-drawn-out battle, Lucifer defeats Michael with Chloe’s help. He orders him to stand down and ‘bend the knee’, and then goes on to cut off his wings. “Bend the knee” is frequently used by Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, whenever she subdues an enemy.

Legendary Valyrian Steel Swords to look out for in House of The Dragon: Part 2

Legendary Valyrian Steel Swords to look out for in House of The Dragon: Part 2

Valyrian Steel Swords are very priceless and magical weapons that are possessed by very few. By the time of Game of Thrones, we see only a handful of individuals who have access to them. But 300 years ago, during the events of House of the Dragon, they were much more in number.

We have seen a few of them in HBO’s TV adaptation of Game of Thrones. But there will be a lot more in the prequel show House of The Dragon. There have been about 227 Valyrian steel swords that have been recorded in the history of Westeros, most of them have been lost or destroyed. Let’s have a look at a few of them that might make an appearance in House of The Dragon. We covered a few of them in the previous article, here’s the link. Do check it out!

 

Lamentation

Lamentation was a famed Valyrian steel sword that belonged to House Royce. Ser Willam Royce wielded the blade during the Dance of the Dragons. The sword was torn from the hand of Willam, however, when he was killed during the Ride of the Seven. With Willam’s death, the sword was carried off, never to be found again. However, some rumours claim that Ser Warrick Wheaton slashed a wing off of Syrax with a Valyrian steel sword, likely Lamentation, during the Storming of the Dragonpit.

 

Dark Sister

Dark Sister is a famous longsword of Valyrian steel. It is one of two ancestral swords of House Targaryen. Dark Sister had a slender blade originally designed for a woman’s hand. It was wielded by Visenya Targaryen during Aegon’s conquest of Westeros. During the Dance of the Dragons, it was the prime weapon of choice for Prince Daemon Targaryen. Dark Sister was lost when the last wielder of the sword, Brynden Rivers, went missing beyond the Wall in 252 AC.

 

Longclaw

Longclaw is the ancestral Valyrian steel sword of House Mormont. It is the same sword Jeor Mormont gifts to Jon Snow at the Night’s Watch in Game of Thrones. The Mormonts supported the Starks in their allegiance with Rhaenyra Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons.

 

Lady Forlorn

Lady Forlorn is the ancestral longsword made of Valyrian steel belonging to House Corbray. The sword has a heart-shaped ruby in its pommel and its blade is smokey-grey in appearance. Ser Corwyn Corbray wielded Lady Forlorn during the Dance of the Dragons. It was in the possession of Ser Lyn Corbray in Game of Thrones.

House of The Dragon’s Co-showrunner Ryan Condal confirms the existence of 3 famous Valyrian steel swords in the show

Valyrian steel swords have always been a source of fascination for the fans of Game of Thrones. Made of a fictional metal in the ancient land of Valyria, not many such weapons survive since its doom. They are very rare, priceless, magic-infused and are often passed down as family heirlooms. We have seen a few of them in HBO’s TV adaptation of Game of Thrones. But there will be a lot more in the prequel show House of The Dragon. There have been about 227 Valyrian steel swords that have been recorded in the history of Westeros, most of them have been lost or destroyed. Let’s have a look at a few of them that might make an appearance in House of The Dragon.

 

Vigilance

Vigilance is a Valyrian steel longsword belonging to House Hightower. It was last wielded by Ormund Hightower during the Dance of the Dragons and he fought for King Aegon II Targaryen. Ormund was slain by Roderick Dustin during the first battle of Tumbleton, after which the sword was lost forever.

 

Ice

Ned Stark wielding Ice, Game of Thrones (HBO)

Ice is the ancestral greatsword of House Stark made of Valyrian steel. It is the sword that was wielded by Ned Stark in Game of Thrones. The sword was wielded by Lord Cregan Stark during the Dance of the Dragons, who was the Warden of the North during the period. He supported Rhaenyra Targaryen due to his pledge known as the Pact of Ice and Fire.

 

Truth

Truth was a Valyrian steel longsword carried by Moredo Rogare, a Lysene noble from the wealthy banking Rogare family. During the Dance of the Dragons, the Rogare Bank rivalled the Iron Bank of Braavos in size. We might get a glimpse of the sword in House of The Dragon.

 

Orphan-Maker

Orphan-Maker is a Valyrian steel longsword belonging to House Roxton with a black blade. Ser Jon Roxton wielded the blade during the Dance of the Dragons. He sided with King Aegon II Targaryen and the sword was used in the Battle of Honeywine and the second battle of Tumbleton. The sword later came into the possession of Lord Unwin Peake, after which its whereabouts are unknown.

 

Blackfyre

Blackfyre is the fabled hand-and-a-half longsword of Valyrian steel once wielded by Aegon the Conqueror. It is perhaps the most famous sword in all of Westeros. Aegon II Targaryen’s possession of Blackfyre enhanced his legitimacy against his rival, Rhaenyra Targaryen, during the Dance of the Dragons. It was lost after the Blackfyre rebellion.
