With the sixth season premiere of "Game of Thrones" getting closer and closer, HBO has begun to drop little hints here and there, giving us a little taste of what's to come. Yesterday, the network released 20 new images from the upcoming season, answering some of the questions fans of the show have been asking themselves since the dramatic end of last season.
If you're averse to spoilers — even one's inflicted by HBO themselves - this would be the time to stop reading!
The images reveal that Arya has in fact gone blind and that Jamie and Ceirse's incestuous daughter, princess Myrcella, is indeed dead. But in happier news, as we reported last week, Sansa and Theon "Reek" Greyjoy have survived their jump!
The other images confirm the return of many loved and hated characters, including The Red Woman, the High Sparrow, Margaery Tyrell, Davos Seaworth, Sam and Gilly, and Brienne of Tarth.
We are also made privy to Daenerys Targaryen's fate! Last we left her, she was miraculously rescued by one of her dragons, after she and her entourage found themselves outnumbered in a violent uprising. Safe, but now flown far from Meereen, Daenerys finds herself alone - save Drogon the dragon - in the middle of nowhere. Unable to convince Drogon to take her back home, the Mother of Dragons begins to wander in search of food, when she is suddenly surrounded by a gang of Dothraki bloodriders. The image released, shows The Mother of Dragons with her hands tied, standing in front of what seems to be her captives.
Who was not included in theses pictures? Jon Snow of course. Most likely a deliberate slip, HBO is still keeping us fans on the edge of our seats in regard to his rumored survival.
With the first episode airing on April 24, all we can do is count the days.
