Turns out there is a god, and he watches HBO, because, in advance of the Apr. 24 premiere of the show's sixth season, we've just been treated to a new Game of Thrones trailer. Truly, I can't figure out if this is kind of them or if it's torture, or if it's both. Every new bit of footage we get of the upcoming season gets me more amped up for the premiere, and I'm really not sure how much more my body can take. One thing that is a bit of a relief is that some of the moments that were hinted at in previous trailers are addressed and expanded on, so there's less for us to agonize over.
Like the fact that it shows the long-missing dragon Drogon swooping over the Dothraki march where Daenerys is being held captive, for example, suggesting that he's about to quite literally turn up the heat and rescue her. Or the fact that we see Tyrion Lannister come face to face with the dragons, proving that he's become an influential and trusted member of Dany's entourage, even in her absence. Both of those things, and some of the other loose ends they wrapped up a bit more, encourged me to give a sigh of relief, but then the trailer also introduces a whole bunch of other images that get me wondering about a whole host of new things.
Like who is that woman with Varys? What's the deal with Arya? Is Jorah Mormont's greyscale gonna be an issue? And should I be worried about this army of the dead? (Answer: yes.) Honestly, I didn't think it was possible, but I'm coming out of yet another trailer with more questions than answers. I don't know how they do this to me. Watch the trailer below, and try to come up with a way to stay calm for the next few weeks until all this amazingness finally reaches our television screens. Because I have no advice for you.
