The whole gang (minus a certain lustrous-haired Lord Commander) are featured in the revealing new photos.
It seems as though -at least for the time being- Arya Stark will be a blind Cat of the Canals.
The dynamic duo seems poised to continue their covert, geo-political puppetry.
Tryion can still stare pensively with the best of em’.
Turns out, as we have been led to believe, Princess Myrcella is dead. Does this mean Jaime will seek vengeance on the Sand Snakes and Ellaria? If Cersei has any say -and she always does- she will want their bones served to her in a rich stew.
Speaking of the shamed one – this shot proves that Jaime makes it back to King’s Landing to tell his twin sister the distressing news. “Sorry sis, another one bites the dust.” Also, if we are to believe Maggy the Frog’s prophesy -and why wouldn’t we- Tommen is in big trouble.
The High Sparrow (and High Septon) is back to wreak havoc on the godless nobility of KL. The more Jonathan Pryce the better.
Theon (Reek) and Sansa survived their snow jump from the wall of Winterfell. But with Stanis’s army all but destroyed by Bolton forces, where are they going to go? Will Brienne find them?
Last time we saw Danny she was surrounded by a Dothraki khalasar. And by the looks of this shot, she is still their captive and has not made it back to Meereen. And, she’s near water…curious.
Missandei. Does anyone truly care about the whole Grey Worm/Missandei romance? My advice: cut this storyline and replace it with more Davos Seaworth. One can never have enough Onion Knight.
This is a big one. Bran on his feet, conversing with the Three-Eyed Raven. Don’t get too excited, this is surely a vision, but it does confirm that we will be seeing direct visual representations of Bran’s green-seeing this season -which means a Tower of Joy flashback is still in play.
Roose & Ramsey, two scheming, sociopathic peas in a pod.
Perpetual ray of sunshine Balon Greyjoy is back to burst through the screen with his luminous smile and impossibly vibrant charisma.
This one is just sad. Myrcella, we hardy knew thee.
Yara Greyjoy returns for the sixth go-round. If Melisandre’s whole king-killing seance is as diligent an enterprise as it seems to be, Yara’s loving father is about the meet the seven. This likely means we will meet Victarian and/or Euron Greyjoy -or most likely a composite of the two.
Hands folded like a true gentleman.
Looks like Sam and Gilly are still on the road to Old Town. Not much to report here, but it’s nice to see the two lovebirds looking no more downtrodden than they usually do.
Oh the Onion Knight, Davos Seaworth – you are simply the best. If you don’t love Davos, you have no soul, no heart, just a vacant chest filled with black tar and echoes.
Fresh off the death of his only true friend and tutor Shireen and -undoubtedly- looking for the Red Priestess to seek revenge, his arc could be significant this season. This looks like The Wall. It would be just like GRRM (and David and Dan) to set something up where Melisandre’s resurrection of Lord Commander Snow is interrupted by our beloved Davos Seaworth in a murderous rage. I really hope this theory is wrong.
Speaking of the shadow-birthing, kid-burning, sex-kitten – here she is on a horse looking as icy as ever.
Last we saw Brienne she was forsaking her candle-watching duties to galavant off into battle and -possibly- kill Stannis. This shot doesn’t show us much, but as usual, B.O.T. looks ready to fulfill promises by any means necessary.
This must be Margaery Tyrell, and by the looks of it she’s still being held prisoner by the High Sparrow. One would assume this would mean the Tyrell’s will still be in the mix in some capacity – at the very least to attempt to arrange the release of two Tyrell heirs. Let’s hope we at least get a handful of Diana Rigg scenes.
Only 57 days until season 6!
