HBO released on Wednesday 23 photos of Game of Thrones season six, which will debut Sunday, April 24. The pictures confirm who died and who survived, but there’s still no sign of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow.
Most of the photos don’t reveal much beyond season 5. Arya is blind and appears chilling in Bravos; Tyrion is seen left behind in Mereen; Dany appears off on the plains by herself; Margaery is in prison, and Cersei is shown as she tries her best to rock an involuntary bowl cut.
One of the highlights of the photos is Sansa Stark, who apparently survived after jumping off of an insanely high wall in the north of Westeros and is shown as she helps Theon Greyjoy out of a frozen river. On screen, both of them were last seen in mid-air after jumping from the walls of Winterfell as they desperately tried to flee Ramsay Bolton.
And Bran is back!
But Myrcella Baratheon had not the same fate, as she appears dead in the Red Keep, with her uncle/dad Jamie Lannister and younger brother King Tommen looking on her. Another picture features Jamie carrying her draped corpse back, on the exact same rowboat Myrcella was sent to Sunspear.
Myrcella was last seen on screen in season four. She was leaving Dorne with the Kingslayer on a boat when it came out Ellaria Sand had poisoned her in retribution for Oberyn Martell’s death, Sand’s lover.
Daenerys Targaryen appears as she’s brought before an unveiled Khal and flanked by two blood riders. She was last seen surrounded by an unknown Dothraki Khalasar.
Cersei Lannister, who was last seen naked and covered in excrement and spit after completing her walk of shame through King’s Landing’s streets, is shown in one picture with her brother/lover Jamie. In the other still, she appears in what appears to be a flashback with Septon Unella.
The only new character HBO shows in the photos is Max von Sydow’s Three-Eyed Raven. He’s standing alongside Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Bran Stark, which must be a vision because Bran has been paralyzed from the waist down since the first episode. He didn’t appear in the fifth season to let the rest of the storylines catch up with his arc, which by the fourth season had already reached as far as author George RR Martin had in the novels.
