Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham made a guest appearance during last night’s Conan O’Brien show, where the actor not only revealed author George R.R. Martin had let him in on a top-secret secret, but also introduced the very first clip from the highly anticipated Season 6.
Spoilers and Speculations for Game of Thrones Below
Before you go ahead and take of look, do you guys recall that at the very end of the first official Season 6 trailer, we saw Ser Davos Seaworth draw Jon Snow’s Valyrian Steel sword Longclaw from its sheath while saying “I've never been much of a fighter. Apologies for what you're about to see”? Well, now we know a bit more about that.
While I’m pretty sure most of us thought the Onion Knight was drawing the sword to cut off a “dead” Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) head, in fact, that’s not what’s actually happening. At all. Cue a major sigh of relief 'cause I like where Jon's head is -- attached to the rest of his body. And you can finally see why Ser Davos is wielding Longclaw in this Game of Thrones clip. Check it out.
Here's the official Season 6 synopsis:
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.
Season 6 of HBO's hit fantasy series is set to premiere April 24 with an episode titled “The Red Woman.” And who’s the Red Woman? Yep, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) who conveniently made her way back to Castle Black at the end of last season, right before Jon was stabbed to death by his fellow sworn brothers of the Night's Watch, led by that b@$***d Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale). Here’s the episode synopsis:
Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.
From all the set pics that have emerged over the past months, I have a feeling Jon won’t be dead long since Harington has been spotted filming scenes on set, wearing Stark colors. That, and we know Melisandre asked the secret of resurrection from Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) -- the outlaw Red Priest who’s resurrected Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) quite a few times before. I think by the end of the episode, she'll attempt the same thing on Jon herself. Goodbye Jon Snow, hello Jon Stark.
