* Spoilers ahead if you're not all caught up on GoT.
SO I'M A LITTLE EXCITED BECAUSE THE NEW SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES STARTS TOMORROW NIGHT! Just a little.
What I'm not so excited about is heading into Season 6 knowing nothing, à la Jon Snow, about what to expect because there are no new books to read. I had it good for the previous five seasons, being able to compare book to TV series. I liked having some idea of future events, even though the TV show has deviated from the books in some significant ways.
One story line that the show remained faithful to was the Night's Watch literally backstabbing Jon Snow at the end of Season 5! I knew it was going to happen, but OMFG, it still hurt like hell to watch! I hope to the old gods and the new that somehow, Jon Snow and his beautiful hair aren't really gone, but on the other hand, I don't like the idea of, say, Melisandre doing her creepy ass magic to bring him back!
The GoT trailers are always an exercise in paying very, very close attention and absorbing every little detail. The Season 6 trailer below includes:
- The return of Bran Stark, after not appearing at all in Season 5. (Hodor had better be back, too!)
- The return of Yara Greyjoy, Theon's sister. It also looks like Theon goes home to the Iron Islands.
- Jaqen H'ghar is back for another season! He warns a now blind Arya that she won't get another chance.
- The terrifying Night's King! You know, the icy dude who stared down Jon Snow in "Hardhome?"
- Jaime looking like he's about to rip the High Sparrow to shreds.
- Margaery and Loras still being held in the dungeons.
- Frankegregor! Is Cersei going to use him as a one man revenge squad? I'm thinking that Septa "Shame" Unella would be Cersei's first target. XD
- Jorah's arm not looking so good. Damn greyscale.
- Daenerys not exactly being welcomed by the Dothraki khalasar she ran into at the end of last season. But surely Drogon will save his mother!
- Was that f**king Walder Frey in the trailer?!
- The show's producers have teased a massive battle this season; perhaps involving Ramsay?
As much as I'd love to post the recaps at the beginning of the week, I really don't have a set day for them to go up because real life is just so hectic. But, recaps will be posted, lol! Looking forward to chatting with fellow GoT fans again this season! :D
