HBO has released the first three clips from the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones. The clips arrive hot on the heels of the new awesome official trailer unveiled yesterday.
In the first clip from the premiere episode, "The Red Woman," Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Theon (Alfie Allen) are on the run, having obviously survived their fall in a bid to escape the walls of Winterfell and the clutches of Sansa’s sadistic husband, Ramsay Snow/Bolton (Iwan Rheon). But dogs (and, no doubt, Ramsay) are closing in as our escapees face a freezing river.
The second clip – also from the first episode – sees Twincest couple Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) Lannister reminiscing about their dead mother’s rotting, decaying body. Ewwwww. Good times.
In the third and final clip (this one is from Episode 3), Daenerys (Emilia Clark) arrives in Vaes Dothrak not as the mighty Khaleesi she once was, but as the captive of another Khalasar. Have a look below.
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.
Game of Thrones returns on April 24 on HBO.
